When you take the time to custom design any room in your home, your goal is to have a room that you love at the end. The creative design process can be tricky, because you need to make sure that all your design elements match. However, once you start seeing all your favorite finishes and features together, you will know that the time you have spent was worthwhile.
One of the first things that you will need to do for your custom bathroom design is determine the layout of your bathroom. A three wall layout is going to give you the most versatility, but it is also the most expensive of all the layouts. As you are deciding where things will go in your new bathroom, you will want to consider your lighting options. Some areas of your bathroom will need more lighting than others and you will want to make sure that you can have the light that you need installed.
We recommend using a large variety of lighting fixtures including pendant lights, chandeliers, and accent lighting. Make sure that you have dimmer switches installed too, so that you can lower those lights on the nights when you need to relax after a long day at work.
While your design is going to incorporate many things, we suggest that you choose one of them as your main focal point. This can be your tub, shower, vanity, or a piece of art on the wall. Choose this point first and then consider what will be secondary points of interest afterwards. Once you have your focal point, you can add qualities that will make it stand out more than it normally would. If you are using a tub, then maybe a gorgeous chandelier overhead will pull the look together. For a shower, bold colored tiles with glass doors and a rain shower head will make it stand out from everything else.
Purchasing ready-made cabinets is definitely an option. But if you are custom designing your bathroom, you may want to go all out with custom cabinets. Another option would be to repurpose an older piece of furniture to use in this space.
One of the last things that you will need for your custom bathroom design is flooring material. We recommend choosing a material that is easy to clean yet looks luxurious and expensive. Ceramic tiles are often your best bet, as they can look like many other materials that you might want to consider. This is an excellent way to get a wood floor in your bathroom without the worry of having the wood get ruined by the water.
Custom designing your bathroom is an excellent way to ensure that no other bathroom looks like yours. Plus, you will have all the features and the design that you have wanted and loved.
