As long as your bathroom is functional and regularly cleaned, it does not matter what it looks like. However, some others might have different ideas. A bathroom is also a place that must look nice, so you can think up of some interesting bathroom ideas here.
Many bathroom ideas will make your bathroom more than just functional. They will also make your bathroom look excellent and you will spend more time on it because you feel comfortable. The choice you make will also show on your overall style at home.
So, what are your best bathroom ideas if you want to renovate or remodel? To design a bathroom, you must be aware of certain elements. The bathroom ideas in the pictures you have seen may look really nice, but not everything you can apply in real life. This guide from Ideal Home will help you to decide which bathroom ideas that suit yourself most.
Some of the things you need to consider before taking one of the bathroom ideas into account include:
The last bit is probably the most important and should be put first. Still, in the end, it is all about your choices and how you are going to make that happen. Either you stick to your budget and sacrifice some of your bathroom ideas or work on to save some more money just to get the bathroom of your dreams.
The list of bathroom ideas here is actually just a smaller few compared to many others out there. If you are ready to have a new, much more luxurious-looking bathroom (but with reasonable budget), then check them out here.
The tiled tub in your bathroom gives a sense of luxury. However, if you are worried about your budget, you do not have to use ceramic tiles to cover your bathtub. As long as they are smooth and with a nice colour, you can still save some cash.

Is your bathroom small and there is not so much space? Well, you can go plain and simple with white walls which are half-covered by sand-papered wood. The appearance is so contemporary and these materials have a strong relation to any coastal place.
According to Homify, in some bathroom ideas, there is a shower room with a bathtub inside. However, if you want to have a shower room without a tub, that is okay too. With only a simple combination of wooden floor and white walls – plus a vanity, you still have plenty of space in that bathroom.
One of the common problems in the bathroom is the wet floor that causes people to slip and fall. These mosaic tiles are your savior when you are in the toilet after taking a shower. They dry quickly and leave nothing wet to step on
Whether you would like to go for something simple or not, make sure the bathroom ideas that you choose just fit your budget. Whenever you feel like it, you can always remodel your bathroom again and is a mega listicle from House Beautiful if you want to dig more ideas.
Do not be mistaken when you hear the words ‘bathroom vanities’. We are not talking about people who love taking selfie photos while they are in the bathroom. Even the idea itself might make you wince.
What are ‘bathroom vanities’? A bathroom vanity is a collection of sink or basin, along with the storage. The storage is placed to surround the sink or bowl. Some may look at and think of them as bathroom cabinetry. The design is made to support the pan and hide the necessary, associated plumbing and to give much storage that you need.
The ‘bathroom vanities’ usually also have a bench top. They can either be made of stone, cement, wood, laminate, reconstituted stone, and a lot more. Since the bathroom is the biggest area with more chances to get wet, then the ‘bathroom vanities’ must be moisture resistant and waterproof.
Bathroom vanities come in different shapes, sizes, and designs. It depends on your favorite style and which functions you are looking for. In fact, some people today prefer having double vanities. That is where a pair of sinks (usually with twin-like design) are set into one unit. If you and your other half would like to brush your teeth at the same time, then you can do that side by side.
Based on shapes, sizes, and designs, bathroom vanities have many. The great types so far include:
If you are the artistic type who would like to have something more unique, perhaps you can combine either kind of bathroom vanities above into something new.
When it comes to sizes, you can have them either narrow and wide. Home Improvement Pages suggests to make sure that they hold and support the sink. Some can even take up the entire wall of the bathroom. Do not forget that the size of the bathroom itself also matters. The last thing that you need is the existence of a bathroom vanity that makes the bathroom feel stuffy. You still need enough space to move about.
Rectangular is probably the most common design for bathroom vanities. Since it is compact and will not take up much space, a rectangular bathroom vanity can be built right into the wall. The good thing is, you know where it always is and you do not need to move it around.
With new materials and design advances, there are other shapes that you can choose for your bathroom vanities, like:
It is hard to decide which bathroom vanities for you. If you live alone and your place is small (like a studio apartment, for example), perhaps a 24-in vanity is enough. If you live with a very considerate roommate, you also do not have to have a big vanity.
However, if you live with your family and things can get really rowdy in the morning, having double vanities in one bathroom is the perfect solution.
Have you ever up to do a bathroom remodel? If you would like to change or remodel your bathroom, make sure that this is not just some temporary emotions. Remodeling your bathroom is nothing like building it from scratch or renovating it a little.
How much is it? According to Home Advisor, the average budget for a bathroom remodeling is about $9,599. The average amount of budgeting that most homeowners spend for this work is between $5,919 to almost $14,000.
For a bathroom that is small or medium-sized, you may allocate about $3,500 to $7,000 in essentials upgrading. If your bathroom happens to be bigger than that (especially the master-sized one), then be ready to allocate about $13,000.
That number sounds fantastic, especially for this day and age. When it comes to remodeling a bathroom, many homeowners rely on style and budget. As a home improvement project, bathroom remodeling often results in high reselling of the entire house itself.
With the prices mentioned above, it is no surprise that many will ask you to reconsider having this done. This is why you need to form a much more careful and thorough planning in bathroom remodeling.
How do you make sure that your plan will not go awry? For starters, follow these steps just to be on the safe side:
There are many sources online that you can find, and I recommend this post from Better Homes & Gardens, truly comprehensive. If you know someone with the experience of bathroom remodeling, that is even better. Ask around and get all the help that you need and as much as you can.
Another thing that you may consider in this step is more information on the standard bathroom accessories. You will definitely need this, even long before the remodeling of the bathroom begins.
Alright, perhaps the bathroom of your dreams has an interesting-looking design. However, you also need to be realistic. In the end, it depends on the size of your bathroom and… yes, the budgeting.
This is more than just saving as much money as possible for your bathroom remodeling project. This also includes finding the right contractor plus the estimated amount of time to complete the work.

It is true that small bathrooms are not as costly as the big ones. However, this is not like a stroll in the park either. These are the three cost factors you need to consider when it comes to this:
Increasing the amount of bathroom space that you would like to remodel mean adding more cost.
Moving the toilet and the sink because of the bathroom remodeling will also need more money.
Remodeling or renovating the bathroom will also mean dealing with these matters. Just to be on the safe side, hire a separate professional to deal with the plumbing and electrical issues.
Just like kitchen cabinets and other cabinets in other rooms, purchasing the right bathroom cabinet requires the same tricks. There are goals and priorities to find, which include:
The size of your bathroom will definitely affect the size of the cabinet that you choose. If it is small, then there is no point of having a cabinet that will take up so much space. Besides, what do you really want to store there?
If your old bathroom has never had a cabinet before, then it requires a remodeling to have one. Whether it means tearing down the wall above your sink or toilet, there are needs to be assessed here. Oh, do not forget about the extra expenses too.
Buying a bathroom cabinet also requires matching it with the fixtures and appliances in the bathroom. Are they still in good condition or already too old-fashioned? You can either choose a cabinet that matches them or vice versa – update the other fixtures and appliances to match the cabinet of your dreams.
Some people only need a bathroom cabinet to store both toiletries and medicines. Some even store their make-up kit there too. Combine with the size of the bathroom and the functions, how big is the cabinet that you need?
How do you decide the quality of a bathroom cabinet? According to HGTV, there are four basic grades to do so:
RTA stands for ‘ready-to-assemble’. This bathroom cabinetry has the cheapest grade. The downside is the fact that you will have to sacrifice the materials’ quality and the construction too.
This cabinetry is considered good enough. However, this grade does not offer enough varieties for you to choose. If you are looking for something simple, then this is perfect for you.
Unlike the customized version, the semi-custom cabinetry does not offer a size that will fit easily into any size of the bathroom.
This is the best grade for a bathroom cabinet. When it comes to style, material, and space, this cabinet can fit easily.
It is better to own at least one bathroom cabinet to store all your hygiene products. With these considerations, hopefully, you will find the best one for you.
When it comes to having a bathroom sink, it is not just about the existence of a simple, functional bowl. It is not just something to spit your toothpaste mixed with saliva after you brush your teeth. Besides worrying about whether the water tap will work just fine or not, let’s start from the beginning.
What are Bathroom Sinks Made of?
Vitreous china and iron (which is cast-enameled) are the two most used materials to make a bathroom sink. These two materials have been proven to last the test of time. This does not mean there are no other alternatives, which include:
Which ones do you prefer for your bathroom sink? It depends on the size of your bathroom, your style preference, and budget. Yes, although this is only a sink, to create one still requires a remodeling. According to HGTV, the budgeting to install a decent bathroom sink ranges from $100 to $5,000.
After measuring your bathroom size and allocating the budget, then it is time to choose the right type of a bathroom sink. There are plenty here so you can match one of the kinds with your style preference.
With the basin perched atop on the wall, the pedestal is the tower underneath that supports it. It also functions to cover the pipes and the water supply.
The difference between this type of bathroom sink with the one with the pedestal above is the legs that support it. Between the legs are the shelves and bars. They function as hangers for towels and washcloth.

At a first glance, this one looks almost similat to a pedestal sink. What makes it different is the pedestal that is not there. This type is especially ideal for those in wheelchairs.
[caption id="attachment_983" align="aligncenter" width="640"] Countertop Lavatories[/caption]
This type consists of either the shallow bowls in one unit are on the top of the counter surface or they extend slowly underneath it. Vessel sinks and integrated sinks are almost like this type of bathroom sink.
[caption id="attachment_984" align="aligncenter" width="480"] Red Vessel sink[/caption]
At a first glance, vessel sinks look almost similar to countertop lavatories. Often crafted with stainless steel, manually made porcelain, carved stone, and spun glass, vessel sinks also offer some seriously artistic appearance.
[caption id="attachment_985" align="aligncenter" width="640"] Integrated Sink[/caption]
Integrated sinks are also considered similar looking to countertop lavatories and vessel sinks. They have wide, flat edges to bring a smooth transition from the sink to its surrounding surfaces.
According to the name, self-rimming sinks are like this: a bowl is built into a countertop cutout hole. There is a rolled rim to support the weight of the bowl.
These sinks are also put under the countertop cutout hole. The clips that keep the bowl where it is are the support of the sink.
Whatever your choice is, make sure that your bathroom sink does not take up so much space and is also functional. After all, that is what we all need.
