KEY THINGS TO CONSIDER FOR A BATHROOM RENOVATION

We all want it, a nice beautiful bathroom. So what is it about bathrooms that make us so happy?

It's our retreat. Our place we start our day and get ready for what is ahead. It's the place we end our day, take off our make up and get ready to unwind and refresh. 

Bathroom renovations are no small undertaking. There are many parts to make your bathroom your perfect oasis. We surely recommend you hire a professional team to conquer the project, however here are a few tips to consider while planning your dream space. 

1. LIGHTING

Lighting is crucial in bathrooms, so planning placement is important to achieve the correct amount in your daily needs. We recommend recessed can lights about 36" apart in your ceiling, a nice amount off of the perimeter of your walls. This way if you bathroom is large enough, you can add a decorative light fixture in the center of the space. (Insert beautiful chandelier here.)

2. STORAGE

Maybe you don't have the room for that large walk in linen closet? That's okay! Get creative with your towel storage. In this custom vanity we decided to roll them in the bottom for a lux spa look!

3. USE YOUR TILE WISELY

We've all seen it, beautiful artisan tile, wouldn't we love to have a whole bathroom adorning it? Well, the reality is, that sometimes it's just not in the budget. So decide to use that tile that you just can't say no to, in small doses. 

Here we used an amazing floral tile made out of small glass pieces (yes, those petals are glass pieces!) then surrounded it with a less expensive subway tile. Everyone wins!

4. FURNITURE INSPIRED PIECES 

If you are hoping to achieve a truly custom and unique look, have fun with your vanity! Look for pieces that are ready made or able to be customized and have a furniture look. You can see here in this traditional bathroom we really got to have fun with the vanity, it looks like an heirloom piece! So think outside of the typical cabinet box. 

Are you ready to tackle your next bathroom renovation? Make sure your armed with proper inspiration to get the look you are aiming for!
