As Candice Olsen, a Canadian designer and host of home-makeover shows, rightly says, “With every bathroom renovation, there are three areas to focus on: budget, function, and style.”
The first point to keep in mind while renovating your bathroom is the budget. You have to set the budget before start planning the renovation process. Most of the times, your dream bathroom goes out of the fixed budget. There’s nothing to panic about because with the right research and planning, you can get your dream bathroom within the budget.
The most important factor that forms the base of any bathroom, is the plumbing work. This one factor decides the placement and fitment of vanities. Talk to your contractor and give him a clear picture how many wet points you require and get a plumbing configuration of the bathroom to be remodelled. There should be enough space between the commode, sink and shower area or bathtub to avoid any collisions and hinderances in the movement. Another important feature is the fixture, there are many attractive designs available in the market that will add glam to your space. Choose them wisely according to your usage and requirement.
Either you tend to over-plan it or under-plan it. In some cases, there is no planning at all. This is a common mistake that often inexperienced designers make while renovating bathroom interiors. Be it bathroom of any size or shape, ensure the following points before the revamp.
- Type of bathroom you’re looking for
- Type of vanity i.e. modern vanity or traditional vanity
- Height of the wash basin/pedestal sink
- Height of the mirror cabinet
- Placement of the bathroom elements(cabinets, vanity, tub, etc).

Lighting is another aspect to look for while renovating bathroom. Often neglected, it so happens that either the lighting is too much or too dull. It is important to maintain the balance between the theme and lighting. There are four types of lighting that one must keep in mind.
-Natural lighting: The placement of window/ventilators in your bathroom design should be done in such a way that you get adequate amount of natural lighting.
-Task lighting: These lighting are basically placed over the bathroom vanity and mirror area. It allows optimum lighting when you are performing daily tasks such as applying make-up or brushing teeth, while saving up your electricity.
It is globally said and believed that a well-designed bathroom can recharge your mood. So plan out your bathroom layout in advance and with proper research, keeping in mind the above points.
