Keep it simple  

Keep it elegant and simple, we believe it’s important for all homeowners to be able to express themselves with their own finishing touches. – Designer Drains

Create clean lines with medicine cabinets tucked neatly away behind mirrors and clever positioning of a hidden mirror allows for a quick 3D check. Wall-mounted faucets keep cleaning to a minimum. Heated floors are great for taking the chill off of a porcelain tile floor. – Laura Britt Design Group

Consider the Future 

A little consideration for how the space will be used as you age can be valuable. Consider design elements such as curbless entry, recessed niches, reinforcement within walls for future grab bars, etc. because thoughtful design now can pay dividends in the future. – Daniels Design & Remodeling

Think about the future. Is this bathroom transformation for resale value or is this your forever home? Young children or grandkids will benefit from the functional capabilities of a bathroom differently from teenagers, yourselves, or your parents. Make selections that will transform the look and the function of the space sustaining the various stages of life the bathroom will serve. Design, plan, and coordinate all of your selections and details prior to remodeling. This will take a little more time in the beginning but will not only increase the quality of the outcome but can save a lot of time and money in the long run, giving you the best return on your investment.  – Showcase Kitchens & Baths

Get creative 

Use your bathroom as a place to let your creative side shine. You don’t have to skimp on fashion to get function, you can have both!  We love floating and spa vanities with vessel sinks to achieve the style and function you are looking for. –iCabinetry

A shower curtain can make the most significant change with a minimum effort. So, go crazy with your favorite colors and designs today. It’s easy to switch up and you can make your bathroom design look totally different tomorrow! – Shower of Curtains

During a bathroom makeover, it’s important to choose flooring and surfaces that are functional and fit your lifestyle. To accommodate wet kids and pool parties choose flooring that won’t become slippery when wet, like concrete painted floors, and consider incorporating wall tiles from floor to ceiling to protect the structure. Add personality and style with a painted vanity and ceiling wallpaper. – Mark Ashby Design

Take advantage of the Pros 

Your master bathroom should be a place of relaxation where your daily concerns melt away. Its design consists of hundreds of details, both functional and aesthetic, visible and hidden, that work together to be successful. So it helps to have experienced designers working closely with you, guiding you through the many options available. – Revive Designer Bathrooms

Hire a local professional designer who does this on a daily basis. It’s not easy to handle a complete bathroom remodel on your own when it’s something an average homeowner only does every decade or more. Go online to get inspiration for the large variety of options you have and start with a list of must-haves so you don’t get overwhelmed. – Blue Bath

Opt for quality materials and products 

If you are doing a renovation in the bathroom, it is important to choose the right faucet specifically for your needs. Sometimes the choice of a faucet for the shower or bathroom can be confusing. With all of the different design options and functional features there is a lot to choose from. – New Bathroom Style

Flooring isn’t just ceramic floors and mosaic backsplashes, though those are great too. The newest products are super-versatile and can be used in so many places! Your bathroom is one of them. Use water-proof, wood-look porcelain plank to give your shower a natural look. Durable, vinyl plank makes a great alternative backsplash, ceiling accent, or feature wall. Less is more. No need to cover your entire room with any one product. Making it a compliment to your space adds to the impact of the feature. – Home Outlet
