Bath Designs: The hardest working room in the house

There is no doubt your bathroom works harder & is more complicated than your living room, or dining room. People come and go at all hours of the day and night. Water gets splashed on the walls and floors, moisture and humidity are always inviting mold and mildew and both are a threat to wall paper, and woodwork. No wonder the bathroom is the most frequently remodeled room in the house!

Bathroom Design Ideas in Washington DC & Bethesda, Chevy Chase & Arlington

It is odd, don't you think, that this hardworking room has historically been assigned so little space in the house. The first order of business in Bath Design is to assess the space available. Is there space in the bathroom itself, we often find in older homes in Washington DC & it's immediate suburbs the claw tub or it's 1970's replacement is lined up length wise with the toilet & vanity, making for a long thin bathroom. This is a gold mine of original footprint space. Houses built before 1970 in Gergetown DC, Kensington MD, Alexandria VA & even Rockville MD sometimes have a linen closet at the end of the hallway abutting the bathroom. The Bathroom Designer could incorporate that closet space and easily expand a typical 30" vanity into a custom double bowl vanity, with lots of mirror and light. Signature Kitchens, Additions & Baths is both a design firm and remodeling contractor licensed in MD DC and VA, as such we often design dimensionally, were thinking in terms of framing, brick wythe, and joist direction, pluming stacks, electrical service and so on.

Function & Aesthetics the Bathroom Design Process

Our Bath Designers will explore with you many modern bathroom designs ideas everything from the merits of a particular bathroom tile design to tub vs. a shower, to multiple shower heads and body sprays, to decorative plumbing fixtures, and his and her vanity cabinets. In all of these product categories we represent a few limited and unique brands, such as Danze, Watermark, Lacava, and Jaclo. Which are often seen in Bathroom Design magazines. Once we have the space and the larger components of the Bath Design it's appropriate to move onto ceramic tile and discuss everything from waterproof underpayment to shampoo niches, leg shaving shelves and accent tile.

The Mini-Cooper or Remodel the Bath?

In any design process we have to consider budget. Let's not beat around the tub. Bathroom remodeling can be an expensive proposition. In this small yet complicated space we have most of the building trades, plumber, electrician even the HVAC mechanic, as well as the framer, and tile setters. Then there are the material costs, tub, toilet, shower and bathroom cabinets, and the ceramic tile. A bathroom remodel can easily cost as much as a small car. Should we buy the Mini Cooper or install a new bath? Eventually the car we'll be worth ...nothing. Your palatial bath on the other hand adds value to your home equal to almost 100% of its cost, according to NARI the National Association of Remodelers.

Armed with all of this insight don't you think it's time to start designing your new bathroom.
