Ugh! Even the most awesome bathroom has to deal with plumbing drains, water lines and vent stacks. And don’t forget electricity! These things don’t play well together, so having a professional advise you, either a designer, or experienced remodeler, is a wise idea.
The reason most bathrooms line up the sink, toilet and shower along one wall, is this is the most efficient (i.e., least expensive) design.
A two-wall layout gives you more flexibility for placing the fixtures, and a three-wall layout is the most flexible, but also the most expensive.
The most critical area for bathroom lighting is the mirror. Ideally you should have wall-mount lights at each side of the mirror at about eye level, with a third light above the mirror. This arrangement illuminates your face from both sides and above, eliminating shadows.
Spa-like showers are very popular, and deserve to be! Luxury showers replicate the spa-resort experience in a dream bathroom. Plan on a variety of spray heads. Ceiling mounted rain shower showerheads soak you from above, while body sprays create a crisscross pattern for a water massage. Handheld shower heads allow you to direct the spray for washing your hair, rinsing off, or even cleaning the shower. Frameless glass doors set off stunning tilework of your choice.
