Any professional bathroom remodeler should offer extensive expertise in bathroom design. In order to update the layout of your bathroom to create a better flow, you’ll work with a expert to redesign your space and select the perfect high-quality products and materials that will become the focal points of your modern bathroom. Redesigns can lead to major changes—such as switching a commode with a shower/tub—for better access and visual appeal.

Add Fixtures and Elements That Fit Your Lifestyle

Whether you need more space to freshen up in the morning or are tired of family members quarreling over a single sink, the addition of a second sink or a separate vanity can greatly enhance the functionality of your bathroom. With an expertly designed vanity, everyone has
plenty of room for their morning routine, and toiletries are discreetly hidden away in cabinets and drawers.

Other elements to consider for a modern bathroom remodel include:

  • Modern Fixtures: Ahigh-walled tub with hydrotherapy jets
    provide extra room for an luxurious evening bath, while an elegant walk-in
    shower is the perfect setting for a fresh start in the morning.
  • Flooring:
    Whether you prefer the convenience of tile, the look of hardwood, or the feel
    of carpet, you can cover your floor with any product that suits your style.
  • Countertops: For a modern design, fine materials such as granite or marble drastically enhance the aesthetic of your space.
  • Lighting: Set the scene for a soothing soak with elegant mood lighting.
  • Accessories: Create a romantic retreat with shelving designed to hold flickering candles.

Tip 1: Vanity space for your bath remodel
A really nice vanity will provide you with his and hers sinks and a ton of storage for everything including your hair dryer, brushes, cosmetics, shampoos, etc. With a nice vanity that includes multiple drawers and cabinets you can easily organize all of your personal items very easily.   You can create a nice vanity show piece easily with a solid surface top. A nice granite countertop is not expensive and will help your bathroom vanity space really stand out. Sinks and faucets come in a large variety of options to help you achieve the design you are looking for. Above your vanity be sure to install a nice mirror. The vanity space should provide plenty of room for multiple people to get ready for the day at the same time and the vanity space can easily become a nice show piece focal point for the entire bathroom.


Tip 2: Bath and shower design

This is where the real magic happens! If you have space it is really nice to install a spa-style jetted tub and include a separate water heater so it instantly receives and controls your hot water preferences! For your shower you can enjoy the benefits of two shower heads that come in a large variety of options including lighting, custom sprays and more. The bath and shower areas can be nicely trimmed out, without breaking your budget, by using ceramic tile. Design your ceramic tile with nice inserts and built-ins for your soap, shampoo and maybe a nice seat to sit on while showering. Finally be sure to consider your shower surround as there a lot of nice options for frameless systems with crystal clear glass that provide a nice, open feel for your entire bathroom.


3. Tip 3 – Lighting, flooring and accessories for your Richmond bath remodel

Now that your vanity space and tub/shower space is designed be sure to carefully consider your flooring, lighting and accessories to nicely finish out your new bathroom.   Light up your entire space with nice vanity wall lighting along with some specialized lighting in your custom shower and spa-tub spaces. Be sure you have plenty of outlets, add a TV connection and maybe a charging space for your mobile devices. Choose a nice flooring that complements your design colors and elements and consider adding radiant heating to your ceramic floor so that it is warm and cozy in the winter months. Your accessory choices will help you maximize space storage and tie into the overall design features of your bath. When choosing your towel holders you should consider choosing one with a towel warmer feature. Wouldn’t you love to step out of your shower and grab a nice, warm towel?


All of your secret dreams can come true in your bathroom. You can create a spa-like experience and the good news is there are a lot of ways to do it within your desired budget. The key is discuss your ideas with a trained professional who knows how to maximize your plans for your budget.
