One of the areas that people commonly overlook when creating custom bathroom designs is that they have the ability to change the layout. In many situations, the original layout of the home does not maximize the amount of space that is available for the bathroom as well as it could. So as part of a remodeling project that includes an upgrade to the bathroom design, the layout should be looked at as well. Not every bathroom will be able to benefit from a layout change, but it should at least be considered.
Would Your Bathroom Benefit from a Change?
When you start working with the Fall River showroom at Paul’s Quality Kitchens, the first thing you must consider is whether or not the changes are worth the added expense, especially if you need to move plumbing or electrical to make it happen. Below is a short list of things for you to consider with regard to a layout change for your new custom bathroom designs that may or may not affect your decision.
- The Toilet – Ask any plumber and they will likely tell you that the location of the toilet is what sets the structure for the entire room. It is possible to move a toilet, but the cost to do so is much more than simply moving a few pipes for a sink or a shower. Remember, a four inch drain is what is required for a toilet, which can make it difficult to move. Your best bet is to keep the toilet where it is, unless it is in a ridiculous location.
- Your Household – Think about the number of people who will use the bathroom on a regular basis. Whenever you shop for materials and fixture to use in Fall River kitchens and bathrooms, it pays to consider the traffic within the space. You also need to think about how much storage space you need for all of those people and whether or not another bathroom might also be used to split up the amount of people using each bathroom.
- Hire a Pro – Even if you have a bit of experience working with home improvement projects, when it comes to bathroom design, it is best to leave it to the professionals. This holds true for plumbing and electrical work that is beyond a minor household repair. There are a lot of regulations that you need to know in order to plumb the bathroom properly. If it isn’t done correctly and something goes wrong, your insurance won’t cover the damage.
- Mind the Door – You might be surprised to see how many people forget to take into account the way that the bathroom door opens or suts when they are thinking about upgrading their bathroom. That beautiful sunken tub might be inviting, but when you have to fight past the door, toilet and sink just to wedge your way into it, it won’t be as awesome as it looked on the showroom floor. Again, working with a professional will eliminate mistakes like these.
Consider Style and Color
The next phase that you need to think about when considering the beautiful Fall River kitchens and bathrooms at Paul’s Quality Kitchens Fall River showroom is the style and color that appeals to you most. You should choose a color scheme that reflects the overall design of the home so that everything ties in well together. Think about the color of the bathroom itself when choosing bathroom vanities and cabinets, and how those colors will work together. While you want a bit of drama, dimension and contrast, you don’t want the colors to be so different that it is shocking when you look at it.
Also, if this is a master bathroom, the color scheme and style should match with the master bedroom. If this is a guest bathroom, you can try something new, but you should always try to get the bathroom to match somewhat with the closest adjacent room. Once again, when it comes to choosing style and color, this is a job best left to a professional.
