Design Tips for Your Dream Bathroom

Dreaming up your custom home’s bathroom? Check out these practical tips!

If you are looking to build a custom home in Maryland, Viking Custom Homes could be the custom home builder for you. Viking has a stunning portfolio of beautiful homes located throughout Frederick, Howard, Montgomery, and other counties. With them, you can design and build not only a home but your dream bathroom as well. Here are some tips on how to plan your dream bathroom.

Layout of Calm

First, consider the big picture. The layout will set all the major building blocks in place. Allow ample space in the middle of the room, with easy access and flow between all major bathroom features. Let the shower, bathtub, or vanity be the focal point of the room rather than the toilet.

Low-Maintenance Materials

Choose low-maintenance materials that you know will last a long time. For example, paint will fare better on walls than wallpaper most of the time. Ceramic, porcelain, and vinyl plank tiles are highly durable; meanwhile, natural stone needs sealing, and natural hardwood can expand and contract. 

Durable, Safe Materials

Choose materials that can take years of wear and tear, and choose flooring with some level of friction. Consider the texture of your flooring: you don’t want it to be too smooth, and you don’t want it to be too rough. Viking Custom Homes can help you choose a floor tile that works best for you.

Proper Lighting

Viking is also an expert in bathroom lighting. Designing the lighting of a room is more than sticking lights over the bathroom mirror. One must be sure that there is enough lighting to illuminate the entire room as well as key tasks areas, such as the vanity and the bathtub.

Room for a Shower

Speaking of the bathtub, are you sure you really need that jacuzzi? Consider whether or not you need a specific type of spa tub carefully, as many people end up not using theirs most of the time. However, it is always a bonus to include a soaker tub, given you have the space and the need. If you prioritize the shower and have limited space, one could go for a spacious shower instead.
