3. Hopscotch: When You Want to Celebrate the New and the OldA classic “hopscotch” pattern creates the illusion of swirling angles but only uses squares in two sizes. The large squares are a bit offset from each other, which creates space for a smaller accent square, almost creating the appearance of a sprinkling of confetti. This pattern is great for transitional spaces, especially in homes with traditional elements such as attractive moldings because it feels classic and contemporary at the same time and looks interesting without needing to be trendy.
Step 5: Approve the Schematic DesignIn this phase, you’ll be reviewing sketches and preliminary floor plans and elevations that show the layout of your planned bathroom and the size of its components, like the vanity and any cabinetry. The point here is to get the major elements and spacing down before moving forward, not to have a complete picture of how the finished bathroom will look in terms of color and materials. Once the measurements and sizes are nailed down, then you will know how many square feet of tile you’ll need to order or how big of a marble slab you’ll need for the countertop. You or your designer can use this info to start shopping around for prices on materials. These drawings, sketches and scope of work will be used to interview contractors to start getting estimates.
