When it comes to taking on home renovation projects (or building one’s home from the ground up, for that matter), it is fair to say that there are a million and one options that one could seek out to bring the rooms in their space to life. While designing one’s dream home is exciting in itself, the area of the house that often draws the most attention is the bathroom. Designing a bathroom is exciting because it is such a unique space. Typically, bathrooms are areas in the home where every square inch of the room has a purpose, a trait that does not always hold true for larger, more interchangeable rooms within the room. Bathrooms are spaces that require a lot of additional behind-the-scenes work to perfect, but all that work is well and truly worth it, after the hard work is done and the space finally comes together.

The excitement of bathroom design is unique

Bathroom design is one of the most exciting rooms to change, for a few different reasons. But perhaps the most important reason of all is because even seemingly small changes can prove to have the most positively dramatic impact. Even something as simple as switching out taps and knobs from brushed chrome to plated gold can make a bathroom feel fresh and new. Adding in splashes of colour through towels, soap and toothbrush holders, and even plants can make the entire bathroom really shine, and the pops of colour can make all the difference between a generic bathroom and a bathroom with a little extra “wow” factor.

The statement features in the bathroom are stunning

Strong bathroom design these days is all about harnessing the power of statement features and pieces to take the bathroom to the next level. Adding an organic stone bath tub against a glass wall or large window overlooking lush greenery or any other type of unforgettable view, for instance, can easily make the bathroom a favourite room in the entire house. The same can be said for waterfall shower heads, double sink vanities, and smart mirror and lighting options. All these seemingly simple statements are just a few examples of how statements in bathroom design can prove to be the most stunning points in the home.

The overall layout of the bathroom is very deliberate

Again, unlike other rooms in the home, bathrooms are not so easily switched around. This means that, during the bathroom design process, there is a lot of meticulous planning to ensure that the space in the bathroom is used to its utmost capability. Ultimately, the goal is to create a bathroom that is functional and pleasant, and these days there is a rising trend that wants the bathroom to also be a statement room in the home, a point of simultaneous awe and relaxation. Bathroom design is not easy to perfect; it demands hard work and determination. But at the end of the day, it is also one of the most rewarding spaces once you have finally finished the project and it has all come together to create your dream bathroom.
