As you prepare for your bathroom remodel, you’ve most likely started to think of how you want your new bathroom to look and what features you want it to have. From color scheme to the type of tub or shower you want, you’ve got the basic components worked out – but what else do you need to think about to make sure you get the relaxing retreat you’ve always wanted?

We’ve compiled a list of five elements that many design experts cite as being key to transforming your bathroom into the serene sanctuary of your dreams.

1. Efficient Cabinetry

The success of your bathroom remodel is often dictated by the cabinetry installed. While more storage space is usually a good thing – too much storage can quickly overwhelm your bathroom. By carefully choosing the right style and layout of cabinetry, you’ll be able to get more than enough room for storage without having your bathroom cabinets dominate the room.

2. Minimizing Clutter

Your bathroom is supposed to be an area where you can go to relax – not to trigger a claustrophobic episode. Less clutter means more open space, which is ideal for a true bathroom retreat. To help cut down on clutter, make sure you’re using your cabinetry as efficiently as possible while rethinking all the non-essentials that you thought you might get some use out of while in the bathroom.

3. Relaxing Entertainment

You want your bathroom to be a relaxing and peaceful retreat – so why not add some relaxing entertainment to set the vibe? Whether it’s music, television, or simply reading your favorite novel, there are many ways to incorporate such forms of entertainment in your remodeled bathroom.

4. A Lighting Plan

There is no feature more important than lighting when it comes to setting the mood of a room. Your bathroom lighting should be able to satisfy three essential needs:

• Task lighting (for makeup application)
• Ambient lighting (to better set the mood for relaxation)
• Night lighting (to ensure that you’re not trying to find the toilet or sink in the dark)

5. Effective Use of Space

From the cabinetry to the walking areas, your dream bathroom should maximize the amount of space available. After all, there’s nothing relaxing about having to step over clutter or feeling cramped while using the toilet or putting on makeup. By effectively using the space in your bathroom, you’ll be able to make sure that you’ll have all the features you want without overwhelming the room.
