The #1 Choice for Homeowners
Bathrooms are the number one place that homeowners love to renovate, even more than kitchens. One reason why bathrooms get renovated more often than kitchens is simply because the space is smaller and you will typically spend less for a bathroom renovation project for less money than a kitchen project.
Two simple areas we’ve found that can quickly transform the look of a bathroom is lighting and mirrors. It is ironic that, in a room where people need to visually inspect their hair and faces, lighting is usually very dim and concentrated only in one spot—namely, from a ceiling fixture. At the very least, consider having added lighting around the bathroom mirror in the form of sconces.
Bathroom mirrors are so much more than checking makeup or primping hair. Properly sized and placed mirrors in bathrooms are an integral design elements which visually expands the room and adds light to the room. We often like to add a second mirror, in addition to the primary near located above the bathroom sink.
"Here’s a feng shui tip we always recommend: Never have your toilet positioned so that it is facing the door. Toilets should be positioned ninety degrees to the door or at least several feet away from the door."
