Making Your Bath Work For You

Your bath is one of the most important rooms in your home, so when you're planning a remodel, it's important that it not only look great, but that it also meets the unique needs of you and your family. Here are a few bathroom design ideas to help you create a bathroom design that works for you.

Fixtures

A key element of any new bathroom design is choosing updated fixtures. But it's also important to familiarize yourself with cabinet options that make the most of the fixtures you select. For example, consider sink base cabinets that provide ample storage features, such as pull out shelves, wire door racks and interiors built to work around plumbing pipes.

Organization

A bath is often filled with small but necessary items that can clutter up shelves and countertops, taking away from your bathroom design. Look for cabinets with built-in organization features, such as a Bath Mirror with Pullout Shelves that looks as sleek and sophisticated as a work of art, yet saves space by keeping things tidy and out of sight.

Accessibility

Your new bath should be comfortable and easy to use by anyone. Take into account the age, height and needs of everyone in the household as you make bathroom design plans.

Also consider the future needs of you or others to "age in place" at home, such as lower-height counters; vanities built at a higher height to reduce bending over a sink; cabinets with pull out shelves to eliminate bending and reaching; and cabinet doors with easy-to-open handles.

Cleaning and Laundry

Cabinets with removable laundry hampers can make it easier to transport items to the washer and dryer when it's time to clean up. Cabinets with removable trash bins are also available, providing another handy addition to your bath design.

Open Shelving

Consider cabinets that feature open shelving for folded towels or basket storage. Open shelving can also be used to add texture and visual interest to your bathroom design, while keeping clutter neatly contained. Another idea: add a rack at the bottom of a wall-shelving unit to hang extra towels for guests.
