Today heading into the plumbing and fixture showroom for bathroom design, is almost more intimidating than visiting the car dealer. There seems to be more options and choices galore and probably something in every price range, with most of us wishing for something more.
If you are doing the bathroom face lift yourself then be sure to talk with your local plumbing store to ensure you are up to date on current products that should be used in the installation of your tub/shower/toilet. Its extremely important not to go cheap when it comes to protecting the area from water and mold.

The powder room will be the smallest in size in your home and this will be the bathroom most often used by your guests. It may be small in size but you can definitely make it big on style. Make the most out of the vanity or sink you wish to install and when possible add details such as trims and mouldings to bring more architecture and interest into the space. Splurge on your towels such as Egyptian cotton and indulge your guests with fragrant soaps and lotions. A decorate night light can illuminate your powder room if visitors are not familiar with your home. The little extras are a nice touch.
Kids bathrooms are different again. The key here is to keep safety paramount, simplicity and then cleanliness. Select flooring that is as user friendly as possible. A tub/shower combination usually works best for children, toilet, and vanity with plenty of storage. If space allows, then have double sinks, particularly if you have several children sharing the same bathroom. Use a semi-gloss latex paint for durability and easy wipe-ups after steamy showers. Have a hamper where the children can be encouraged to pickup after themselves and dispose of their laundry and towels. Keep colours youthful and energetic and Im sure the kids will be fighting over the bubble bath tonight.
Dont forget the needs of the elderly or handicapped when it comes to the bathroom. There are lots of great options to make mobility and accessibility to the toilet, tub and shower that will allow someone to maintain their independence for as long as their health permits. Safety is always paramount in this case and visit your local medical supply store to see what is new on the market.
Budgeting Bathroom Design
Now for the bathroom that will probably blow the budget, the master bedroom en-suite. When we are lucky enough to have an en-suite I think most of us like to imagine relaxing at the end of a day of work in a Jacuzzi tub or steam shower. There are numerous products on the market today that can make your bathroom a dream spa room. An en-suite could contain a jetted tub, shower, and bidet. There are showers that can pamper you such as thermo therapy, aromatherapy and hydro-thermo massage. Some showers come with jets that are placed in just the right locations that can massage all those aching joints. A shower has become pretty much the car-wash for humans.
Attached to the en-suite is usually a walk in closet or dressing room. If your bathroom space is large enough these rooms will be enclosed in your bathroom area. The use of tile and marble can enhance the luxury feeling of your master en-suite. Cabinets and vanities can be selected in almost any style of decor and budget. Sinks have taken on a new importance in style, from vanity mount, pedestal, freestanding, and wall hung bowls, the choices are endless.
Set the mood of your en-suite with lighting, Mood lighting is best enjoyed on a dimmer and youll need task lighting for youre personal grooming needs. Dont forget how candles can add to your spa feeling as well. Choose luxurious towels, and use your extra special personal touches to make this an intimate space to relax and enjoy. Feeling pampered is not only what you deserve but what you can have as well.
