Take everything into consideration when designing your perfect bathroom.
Your dream bathroom will most likely be the final product of everything you ever wanted in a bathroom. Because of this, you want to plan out everything step by step. Start from a basic floor plan with locations for all of your main fixtures and go from there. List the fixtures you want to include, plan your budget as far as what you are willing to spend on each fixture as well as the bathroom as a whole. Make sure you know where all of your plumbing is to ensure your fixtures will fit into where you want them to be. Don’t be afraid to move things around and adjust your original plan because it might end up being better than what you originally wanted.
Give Each Fixture Attention
Things can get a little overwhelming when designing your dream bathroom, so taking your time is very important for both the quality and your own state of mind. Give every fixture you plan on including in your bathroom its own time and attention to make sure everything is the way you want it. Not only does this include bigger and more prominent fixtures such as sinks, toilets and showers, but towel bars, soap dispensers and other small fixtures and accessories can be equally as important to the overall design and atmosphere of your bathroom.
One thing you want to make sure you spend time on is your lighting plan. Just like knowing where you want your fixtures, you want to know exactly where and what type of lighting you want in your bathroom. Not only do you want to know what type of lighting you want to have, but you need to know where you want to put that lighting and what you are or aren’t restricted to. It is advised that you devise an electrical plan or review your current wiring situation in your bathroom. Consider both floor and ceiling lighting, along with some possible counter top lighting. Lighting can be used to accentuate other fixtures in your bathroom next to their main purpose of providing light.
Another aspect not to overlook when planning out your dream bathroom is how you want to design your wall. There are several ways to go about doing this. The first way is to simply paint the walls. When doing this, keep in mind that you want to use paint that is safe for your bathroom. This means using paint that can withstand the heat and condensation of any bathroom and paint that doesn’t peel or come off easily.

Decor is an essential part of a dream bathroom design. Luckily, there are essentially infinite possibilities that you can go with. Decor can come in many shapes and styles. When it comes to your dream bathroom, you want to explore all of your possibilities. First, consider anything that you like in terms of decor. This can be quite literally anything. For example, if you are of Irish heritage, you may want to decorate your bathroom with some Irish pieces of memorabilia. The same can be said with any other type of cultural or traditional ideas. The other hand, decor can also be something such as a hobby. If you are a fan of a certain type of art design, incorporate decor to match with that. If you're a fan of movies, you may want to decorate your bathroom with movie memorabilia.
Have What You Want
In addition to the fixtures and accessories that you need, you should have what you want. Having what you want is incredibly important for any dream bathroom. For example, you need all of your essential fixtures, but you want them all to be beautiful and functional. You should choose the designs that you like the best. This is true for all areas of your bathroom. It is extremely important to have a comfortable bathroom, and having your preferred elements will definitely help with this.
Comfort is Key
Comfort is one of the most important elements of a bathroom design. Without a comfortable bathroom, you can't enjoy your design to its full potential. There are several ways to boos the comfort level in your design. For starters, you want all of your fixtures to be as comfortable as possible. this means that they should be both comfortable to use and comfortable to access. The same can be said about your bathroom accessories. Make sure all elements of your bathroom are functional.
