Bathroom remodeling is interesting because there’s so much functionality that has to fit into a relatively small space. We all love the idea of a stylish bathroom, but don’t ever sacrifice functionality for style. The bathroom must first be functional and then you consider style. But even more important than style, the bathroom absolutely has to fit your lifestyle. Here are a few great questions that will help you customize and personalize your master bathroom.
- Why Remodel?
Many people remodel the master suite to add square footage, implement a soaking tub or a tile shower, to build a separate toilet area, or to increase the amount of natural light in the room. Why do you want to remodel? Be as specific as possible when answering that question.
- Who Uses the Master Bathroom?
The master bathroom is generally used by the person or people who sleep in the master suite. Additional bathrooms throughout the home are used by other occupants. But if you have multiple people who use the master bath, keep them in mind during the remodeling process as well.
- Will Guests Ever Use this Bathroom?
Whether you keep your master suite private or allow guests to use it is entirely up to you. Entertaining large groups of people may require the ability to use multiple bathrooms in the home. You always want to make sure your master bathroom is fully stocked with toilet paper, hand soap, and other things your guests may need.
- What Additional Purposes does Your Master Bathroom Serve?
Many people use their bathroom as a place to shower, get ready for work, and use the toilet. Those three primary functions are a given; now tell us what additional purposes your bathroom will serve. Is this also the room where you will soak and relax in a hot tub with a glass of wine? Your master bathroom can serve as a way to turn up the romance with the right lighting and a nice bubble bath or shower for two.
Consider also adding a steam shower or a sauna so you can fully relax and detox your skin. A nice sitting area will allow you to take a break from the rigors of everyday life. Heated bathroom floors are a wonderful addition, especially if you opt for tile, stone, or marble flooring. Sensor-activated faucets will give your new bathroom a sleek, modern feel.
