What to Consider When Designing a Bathroom Layout January 3, 2019

What to Consider When Designing a Bathroom Layout, La Crosse, Wisconsin

Bathrooms are one of the most-used areas in the home, which is why you should focus on revamping the space to make it more functional and comfortable for family and visitors. Visualizing the layout will make it easier to discuss your ideas with a bathroom remodeling specialist. Below are a few points to keep in mind when brainstorming a design.

What to Think About When Creating a Bathroom Design Plan

Whether Guests or Family Needs the Space

Whether the area will be primarily used by guests or family members should guide your bathroom remodeling decisions. For example, overnight visitors will need fewer amenities than the family. A simple shower enclosure, shelving to place towels, and ample counter space for toiletry bags should meet their needs. To make the family more comfortable, you might consider installing a separate spa shower and tub, as well as vanities with plenty of storage space for makeup, hair products, toothpaste, medications, towels, and other items commonly kept in bathrooms. 

How Many People Will Use the Bathroom

A vanity with a double sink will come in handy when multiple people need to primp in the morning. You might also require more storage areas to hold everyone’s belongings. When bathroom remodeling, opt for vanities with several large drawers or tubs with built-in storage. This way, you won’t introduce bulky furniture that blocks off areas and restricts movement. 

Where Plumbing Is Located

If you plan to outfit the space with new plumbing fixtures, consider where pipes are currently installed in the room. Moving the sink or toilet to an opposite wall, for example, could cost more because pipes need to be re-routed. The process could also add time to the project, so keep this in mind when choosing the layout.
