What to Consider When Planning a Bathroom Remodel

WallaceBathroom1If you could start your new bathroom remodeling project with a clean slate (and unlimited budget) what would be on your list of must- haves?  That’s a good place to start the planning stages of the remodeling process.  Browse the internet and magazines and collect pictures and  jot down notes on your likes and dislikes of bathrooms you’ve encountered.

Cabinet Discounters also recommends taking into consideration some of the major factors involved in bathroom planning beyond the essentials of toilet, sink and shower/tub.  Here’s a few questions to ask yourself about bathroom features to include or exclude from your bathroom wish list…

Privacy Toilet Or Half Wall?

  • Space dependent, would you like to separate the toilet from the rest of the functioning room?  Many prefer this option for privacy, while others feels it takes away space.

Bath or Shower?

  • Are you more of the serenity seeking tub soaker or a down to business shower and go type?  Today, bathroom tubs are neglected in many homes and are  being replaced with innovative steam showers and saunas.

The Need For Vanity Space?

  • Do you need a functioning vanity to accommodate all the instruments of your beauty routine?  Make sure there is room enough to contain and conceal the hair dryer, curling iron, make-up and so on in the vanity. And plan on a stool for sitting, along with an appropriate vanity height.  If not, you may plan to opt for pedestal sink instead, but don’t forget about including space for linens and towel.


  • If you do glam up in the bathroom make sure there is ample lighting over head.  Prefer to shave in the shower?  Consider the lighting placement and the need for a mirror inside.

These are just a few of the important questions to ask yourself when taking on your bathroom remodeling project.  To learn more about how to effectively plan your new bathroom contact the experts at Cabinet Discounters.  They start with a comprehensive planning and installation guide to help their customers understand the process.  With seven convenient showrooms in Maryland and Northern Virginia their expert designers will help you plan and execute your dream bathroom remodel on time and within budget.
