Building or renovating a bathroom is no small feat, with lots to consider when it comes to selecting fixtures, surface materials, cabinetry, and electrical and plumbing needs—so it’s crucial to plan well and consider how you and your family will use the space based on individual needs.
Good lighting is an essential part of a practical bathroom. Ensure that task lighting and mirror lighting is correctly placed to avoid throwing shadows. Mood lighting is a great way to create a more relaxing atmosphere.
You might lust after a modern floating vanity now, but will you like it in 10 or even five years? If there’s a chance the answer is no, skip it, says Amity Worrel, owner of design firm Amity Worrel & Co. “Putting in a material or appliance that’s very of-the-moment can actually devalue a space, or make the bathroom look so different from the rest of the home it seems weird later.”
Tight spaces can make sharp corners hip hazards. If the corners of a vanity would get in the way, opt for a rounded style. Yes, a round vanity can work in a square space. No more bruised hips!
Anyone who has ever lived in a bathroom with inadequate storage knows what an epic pain it is to find room for toiletries, towels, extra toilet paper, and cleaning supplies elsewhere in your house. Unfortunately, too many people design their bathrooms and completely forget about storage, says MacEachern. In addition to allotting room for cabinets and shelves, he advises leaving yourself at least 30 inches of counter space—and if you don’t have the room, try to compensate with extra wall-hung storage.
Mounting a faucet on the wall allows for a narrower sink or vanity, which in turn frees up square footage in the total bathroom. Don’t be afraid to try a wall-mounted faucet in traditional design. It works anywhere!
