Even though it is one of the smallest rooms in the house, having a high-quality washroom shouldn't be an afterthought; after all, a bathroom remodel is one of the most worthwhile home investments you can make. It might not be cheap, but adding updates — like a new bathtub, walk-in shower and double sinks — will increase the overall value, quality and comfort of your home. More

This formerly drab and ordinary space in an 1853 Greek Revival home became a fun bath area for the homeowner's two year old with the addition of blue and green mosaic tiles, a child-sized toilet, a larger bath tub, and pendant lighting. A skylight brings in cheerful natural lighting. Photos by Shelly Harrison.

When you're ready to start the renovation process, it is important to consider popular trends as well as your own family's needs. First of all, you should consider how best to use the space you have. Think about what your family needs most, and then determine if that pedestal bathtub or larger vanity is worth the investment. Next, find ways to add more bathroom storage. Adding more cabinets and shelves to such a small space can be tricky, but it is often crucial for storing towels and beauty supplies. Finally, think about the overall feel of the space. With a creative use of materials, even a bathroom can have decorative elements.

How do I determine my bathroom layout?


As you remodel, you want to think about resell value and buyer preferences, but you also want to think about what you like. Having a bathtub is key when selling your home, but it might not be a great use of space if your family doesn't take many baths. Instead, opt for more sink space with a larger vanity and double sinks. If several people use the same bathroom in the morning, try separating the toilet and shower area from the sink so multiple people can get ready simultaneously. Or if you like to have options, a bathtub and shower combination is the best of both worlds.

How can I add more bathroom storage?


Since space is always needed, purchase an oversized vanity with plenty of cabinets and drawers. If that's not enough, add a medicine cabinet, wall cabinets or floating shelves. Even something as simple as a shower caddy can make a difference. Organization can also save you space. Straighten up deep drawers by using handy trays and dividers.

What materials should I include in my bathroom?


Because the layout and storage options are pretty standard, picking interesting materials is key for helping your bathroom stand out. Tile offers a wide variety of colors and styles, which makes it a popular flooring choice, while mosaic tiles are common in showers. The grout can be challenging to clean though, so stone or granite might be better shower alternatives. Just like in a kitchen, implementing a fun tile backsplash or countertop color can help liven up an otherwise dull space. And last but not least, don't forget the hardware! Cabinet pulls, shower heads and faucets come in a variety of finishes, which allows you to add bits and pieces of personality.
