Designing and remodeling a bathroom is one of the most popular remodeling projects today. It can be both fun and challenging. You have some ideas about what you like…and some that you dream about for your bathroom. To help you get started on your new bathroom, we’ve given you a few easy steps to get started:

Which bathroom?

I know it sounds silly but let’s be honest…most of us would redo all the bathrooms in our house to start if we could. So decide…will it be a powder room, hall bathroom, shared bathroom or the master bathroom.

Find your style

What’s your inspiration for this new bathroom? Something traditional…or are you ready for a more contemporary bathroom? Use online photo galleries and design magazines to find the style your are looking for. •Pick your bathroom cabinets Your bathroom vanity, along with a medicine cabinet and mirror, influence the look, feel and design of your bathroom. Style matters here…is it a classic 2 door vanity, a floating vanity cabinet or something else that inspires you?
