Hooks, towel bars, and toilet paper holders
The placement of these items, which are always a necessity, are often the last consideration on the list. They actually should be one of the first so that they can be included in the wall and tile design. A bathroom is probably the most hazardous area of your home and the use of towel bars can double as grab bars to help keep your family safe.
Bathroom ventilation is another area of priority to consider. An exhaust fan should vent the air to the outside of your home, not simply to the space between the ceiling joints. This helps to control and prevent the buildup of mold and mildew. Better models have a whisper quiet exhaust fan and humidity control switches that activate when a sensor detects excess moisture in the air.
Common choices for bathroom floors are ceramic tile, porcelain tile, natural stone, and marble. Always consider choosing a surface with a non-slip finish for the safety of your family. Additionally,think about where the floor will meet the hardwood. This transition is important to the aesthetics of your bathroom, but it is often overlooked. You can enhance the luxury and comfort of your bath by adding heating elements to the flooring to warm the surface.
No matter what size your bathroom is, there never seems to be enough storage. A vanity often allows for storage of items below in drawers and cupboards. However, you do not want to choose a vanity that impedes the traffic flow in the bathroom. If your bathroom is large enough, a linen closet can provide plenty of storage.
The style of your bathroom should reflect your vision and compliment the rest of your house. You will want to work closely with a design team to ensure that the bathroom flows with the style of your house yet provides you the updated look you are seeking.
