But most homes offer minimal space and leave lots of room for imagination, dreaming, and adapting. The necessities of a bathroom include sink, toilet, tub and shower. Everything else is frosting on the cake. But sometimes the frosting is the best part!

One of the first things you’ll consider when thinking about a bathroom remodel is the tub or shower, and your choice will make a huge impact on the overall success of your project.

Do you dream of a sunken whirlpool tub for leisurely soaking? Does your Victorian home require a claw-foot tub with a hand-held brass showerhead? The least expensive alternative is a pre-molded fiberglass unit which incorporates both shower and tub.

The next most important selection you’ll make is the toilet. There are almost as many choices for toilets as there are for sinks or tubs. If you want a vintage look, you can choose a pull-chain flushing mechanism. If you want ultra-modern, how about a remote-controlled model? There are models with a built-in bidet for saving precious floor space. Toilets are available in many styles, designs, and colors and can be selected to coordinate with your décor.

You’ll save a lot of money if your remodeling plan can utilize the existing plumbing for both the toilet and tub. If you select a new larger tub, or you need to have walls to be moved or install it? There are things to think about besides what looks best. There are many styles of bath sinks to choose from today. You’re not limited to the standard white porcelain bowl. Your options are many, including glass, marble, granite or ceramic free-standing bowls to molded Corian and faux marble. In most cases, your budget will determine which you’ll select.

Even stock cabinets from a home improvement center come in many colors, styles, and materials. If you have a more generous budget, you can upgrade to custom cabinets with complementary moldings.

Flooring in the bath is traditionally tile, whether ceramic, marble, granite, or terra cotta. What you choose will be determined both by what look you want and how much your budget allows for this choice.

Lighting in a bathroom must be functional, but can also be beautiful and mood-setting. For make-up application and shaving you’ll want bright light. If you love to take a relaxing soak in a hot tub, you’ll want to be sure you can dim the lights!
The faucets on the sink, tub, shower, and toilet, as well as the handles and pulls on the cabinets will serve as the jewelry for the room and should be chosen with great care. Whether you select traditional polished chrome or the newer styles of brushed nickel or antiqued bronze, these items will be the finishing touch on a major transformation.
