Every house and homeowner has their own distinct style. One of the advantages of vanities is that they are available in many shapes and sizes. Therefore, anyone is able to select the style of their choice in order to match the rest of their home’s decor. They can be contemporary (made from steel and glass); they can be traditional (classic antique and Victorian styles made from wood and stone); or they can come in more unique forms tailored to your personal tastes: maybe you want an Asian influence, a convenient old-world cabinet design, or something that looks modern and old-fashioned at the same time. Since there are an infinite number of styles out there, there are limitless choices.
Once your vanity has been addressed, move to the other high use areas. Recessed lighting is an excellent choice for lighting up showers, tubs and toilet areas. In the shower and tub, recessed lighting can be angled to bring out tile design, stone inlays and other decorative design features in those areas. And anyone with a full magazine rack next to the stool can imagine what a recessed light overhead can do for that space as well.
Tankless toilets present a much smaller profile (the lack of siphon feeding eliminates the need for a tank). Tankless options are usually smaller in height and depth by four to six inches, with seating being just three inches smaller than average. Wall-mounted toilets tend to be narrower than other models. Though wall-mounted toilets appear elongated, most only protrude 18 inches into the room and stand 17 to 18 inches tall. Tankless and wall-mounted toilets will require a professional plumber to ensure their proper function. Depending on the amount of work necessary, a pro can add $500.00 or more to your total.
Some homeowners leave their basements as workspaces sacrificing looks and comfort in favor of functionality. Utility aside, many homeowners still include a bathroom in their plans. A bathroom in your basement will save you extra trips upstairs, offering additional convenience and comfort. When designing your basement bathroom, you should think about the function of your bathroom luxury relaxation or a quick wash-up. Even with a recreation or rumpus room, a half bath is a good idea.
If you’ve planned an exercise area into the floor plan of your bathroom remodel, it’s a good idea to also plan a number of venting windows to allow for plenty of fresh air while exercising. If your bath remodel is actually a spa enclosure, ventilation can come in the form of a high bank of awning windows that can be electronically operated.

The answer to this question is up to you. Laying tile is certainly within the ability of many homeowners to do on their own, and with enough advance planning most do-it-yourselfers are certainly capable. Do keep in mind that the potential for water damage is a large risk in any bathroom home improvement, and faulty installation of shower wall tile, sink tile, and floor tiles can lead to bigger problems down the road. In that respect, if you don’t feel absolutely confident doing it yourself, call in a professional so you won’t have to worry.
