One of my favorite ways to pass time is to peruse the internet looking at dream living spaces, it is just so fun!  I particularly enjoy looking at bathrooms, and maybe that is because I have three bathrooms in our house that are in need of updates.  I did do an update on Miss 19 Year Old’s bathroom, but it definitely was a budget update, and is still not complete (sad, I know).  There is so much I could do if only I had unlimited funds!  Are you feeling me?  Designing my dream bathroom would bring me so much joy! 

Below are some tips and tricks that you might find useful if you have a bathroom remodel in your future.

How much space do you have?

The current trend is to design a bathroom so that it looks and feels like a high-end spa. Bathrooms are being designed so that they accommodate a homeowner's needs. Raised toilets, accessible showers that include little luxuries such as a rain shower feature or a multi-function shower head and heated floors are just a few of the specialty features you can include in your design to add elegance and luxury to the atmosphere. If space is limited in your bathroom, corner showers and corner linen cabinets are space saving ideas. A linen cabinet with a mirror door can make the room look and feel more spacious.
