Regardless of whether your bathroom is old and outdated or you simply want to change the decor and make it more luxurious, your dream bathroom can be a reality.
There are several factors to consider when planning your bathroom remodel project. The first is whether you want a traditional look or prefer another style, such as a contemporary or a “green” bathroom.
Traditional bathrooms typically feature calm colors, sophisticated cabinets, and standard lighting, while contemporary styles use contrasting bold colors, unique lights, and crisp simple lines.
Green bathrooms are highly popular among today’s homeowners as well, and often feature eco-friendly characteristics, such as cabinets and fixtures made from bamboo, and soft, earthy colors, such as various shades of green and brown.
The practical aspects of the project depend on things such as the shape and size of your bathroom, and the desired features. Vent stacks, water lines, and plumbing drains must be considered when you remodel. Therefore, when you or your bathroom designer are evaluating space guidelines, make sure everything is figured into the design.
You may also simply choose to make minor changes that can create a dream bathroom without a high price tag. For example, tiling the floors and walls add a sense of grandness and luxury. You can choose from a variety of patterns and designs to create a dramatic and luxurious look.
Another great tip for a dream bathroom remodels project is to install smoked glass shower doors instead of traditional transparent glass. This definitely creates a luxurious atmosphere in this much-used room. The smoked glass also offers a sense of refinement and privacy, which can add to the overall ambiance of your bathroom.

No matter how clean your bathroom is, clutter simply seems to happen. After the colder winter months, you’re probably wondering how such a nice spa-like retreat can get so messy.
Relax. Decluttering is as simple as taking a day in each of your bathrooms to accomplish spring cleaning. For the most part, you don’t need any fancy accoutrements in any of your bathrooms to accomplish decluttering. What is needed is a sense of purging, of being able to get rid of items you no longer use and not feeling guilty about it. Here is what you need to do to get a wonderfully organized bathroom.
Pitch It. When was the last time you used the vitamins, medication, makeup or anything that may be in your medicine cabinet or drawers? If the item is expired, throw it in the garbage. Similarly, label cosmetics and other consumables that don’t have an expiration date. even if it doesn’t have an expiration date, pitch items that smell or look funny, particularly if you know they are past their prime.
Small Storage Spaces. Organize storage spaces such as drawers or cabinets with dividers or storage bins that will keep similar items with one another. Make sure that storage bins have small compartments that are appropriate for makeup, medicines and other smaller items found in bathrooms. By designating certain areas, whether in a drawer, a cabinet, etc., for items like makeup, medicines and other small items, you’ll minimize time spent in the bathroom and organize your home in the process.
Claim Space Over the Toilet. The area over the toilet is a great place for storage. Many organizational stores have storage units specifically made for placement over toilets. These storage areas are great for items such as extra towels, toilet paper, tissues and other frequently used items.
Clean Up the Vanity. How any times have you seen items strewn across your vanity? Use apothecary jars to organize items like makeup brushes, cotton balls and similar small items. Organizing in this manner will give your bathroom a high-end hotel feel. Save a shelf for knick knacks.
