Existing Space. Do you have a “dead” corner in which things currently get lost? Would you like to replace it with a Lazy Susan? Is there a soffit in place above your existing cabinets? Were you planning to tear it out? Cabinets with a crown molding detail such as the Fabu Wellington Spice Design offer terrific options for adding decorating touches or lighting features to your new cabinet design.


Hardwood has been the star of the show for many decades, but what if there was an alternative that looked similar but was less expensive and still durable? That would be XRP flooring. It comes with the underlayment attached, meaning you don’t have to install a layer between the plank and the subfloor — reducing another key cost of getting hardwood. 
It’s important to look beyond the space of the bathroom. Think about the entire look of your house. What kind of layout would best match the design? Does your preferred bathroom layout blend well with the rest of your home? Keep in mind that not everything has to be matched perfectly for it to blend well with your home. Not every door handle has to be bronze, for example. But if you choose a contrasting design, such as silver with bronze, it can be too distracting. If your bathroom is a part of your master bedroom, it is critical to blend the design. Don’t choose a stark bright color to distract from the theme of the main room. Instead, make it an extension of the room that flows well without taking away from the grandeur of the bedroom. A common adage is “add, not change.”There is also a matter of “functional zoning.” This is a good way for you to plan your bathroom layout around the idea of what’s functional. Instead of remodeling from a design perspective, instead think of things from a use perspective. Planning an effective space has everything to do with your lifestyle and how you best use the space. Make sure you incorporate this in your bathroom remodeling.

Idea 2 – The ‘No Tile, Tile Shower’ Wall Panels – Since these shower panels come in modular sizes (which are clicked, locked and sealed together) you can use the same 6 panel 2’ x 8’ x 3/8” shower wall kit (which looks like tile, but blows up the nasty grout joint) and make either a standard 60” x 36” shower or a custom 63” x 35” shower, for example. Once again, a standard product works for a custom size without extra bucks from you.
