Taking on a complete bathroom remodel project is a commitment and has the potential to get quite stressful; however, with enough planning and the help of a team of bathroom remodeling experts – you can have the bathroom of your dreams and it can be customized to fit your needs and taste. Before you get started on your custom bathroom remodel, consider these ways to truly customize your bathroom.
3 Ways to Really Customize Your Bathroom Remodel
Use Tile as a Focal Point
Traditionally, tile has always been used as flooring, but tile has so much untapped design potential if you allow yourself to think outside of the box. Consider using tile for flooring, but making it more interesting by putting a design into the inlay of the tile. If you’ve already decided on another flooring textile, you can incorporate tile behind the bathroom sink by installing a back splash. Back splashes are popular in home design right now and are popping up in kitchens and bathrooms across the country. Whether using colorful tile for a pop of color or the ever popular white subway tile for a bright white and clean effect, installing a back splash behind a sink or around a bathtub is a great way to incorporate tile into your bathroom remodel. Tile can also be used in the shower and opportunities abound in regards to tile choices. Right now the use of heat sensitive tile in showers is picking up steam among bathroom remodelers. These tiles change from seemingly normal black tile to a colorful pattern when hit with hot water. The color changing aspect gives homeowners a modern bathroom design with a temporary pop of color for fun. Regardless of if you are using tile for flooring, a backsplash, or in your shower – it has endless opportunities for customization.

When remodeling a bathroom, one of the biggest decisions that you will make will concern lighting. Does your bathroom have a window which allows for natural light to get in? Are you going to be rewiring electricity during your bathroom remodel? These are all questions to ask yourself and figure out before looking at lighting. When the time does come to choose lighting fixtures, opting for nontraditional options is a design move to consider. Long gone are the days of round vanity bulbs above the mirror and recessed lights in the ceiling. Popular bathroom remodelers are shifting towards making statements with their bathroom lighting choices. Whether that means using hanging lights with colored shades or a combination of a chandelier and lighting planted overtop of the mirror, choose the lighting design that is right for you and that will serve your needs the best. Non-traditional light fixtures will set your bathroom apart from others in a unique way. By using non-traditional lighting fixtures, you bring a level of customization to your bathroom remodel that few other homeowners will consider.
When it comes to a complete bathroom remodel, there are many details to consider. Tiling, storage solutions, and lighting fixtures are only a few items that will need to be crossed off your list. Remember that the most important thing to consider when taking on a complete bathroom remodel is how you picture and want to use the space after the remodel is complete.
