A bathroom remodel is the coming together of big ideas and practical concepts. There is a lot to tinker with and in a relatively small place. The best bathroom remodels start from the regular hard surfaces, working their way to the large areas like floors and walls. When the idea is still fresh, people tend to think about the colors, heated floors, layout and how things should be moved around. 

We all know that the surfaces are what really changes the face of a bathroom. If you handle the project correctly, you can enjoy a lot of comfortable days there and get a lot of functionality out of your bathroom. On the flipside, if you have some shoddy work done, the space will always remind you of what you could have done differently. Therefore, it is upon you to work through the dream phase and actually get a remodel that offers functional as well as aesthetic value. 

In this piece, we shall focus on bathroom showers and vanities and see what new trends and ideas could transform your bathroom into the dream paradise you always wanted. Given that most bathrooms don’t have much room for closets and too many surfaces or fixtures, you have to know where to place the closets so that they don’t seem to cramp up the space. Here are some ideas when it comes to showers and vanities for your new bathroom:

To splurge or to save?

Before you do anything on the bathroom or any remodel project for that matter, you need to decide whether you are willing to spend or aiming at saving some dollars. The truth of the matter is, you always have to work with a budget because then you know what can and can’t be done. For bathroom vanities, you can go either way and still get what you want. For those who have decided to go all out, the choice of materials and finishes is simply endless. There are tons of styles to choose from to come up with your dream bathroom.

Choose a style and stick to it

One way to get it all wrong with bathroom vanities is trying to mix a little bit of everything. There are a lot of different styles for the modern bathroom, so you are sure to find one that catches your fancy. They take up a lot of space in such a small area, so you can be sure that your bathroom vanity and sink console will be the first things anyone notices when they walk in to the bathroom. For this reason, you just have to do your best to make it as eye-catching as you can and still keep it functional in the end.

Materials you can use for your vanities

Wood vanities are a favorite of many people and with good reason too. They speak of sophistication and just give the area a natural feel. However, the reason you don’t see so many furniture vanities is the cost of having one. Even though it is one of the most splendid ways to spruce up your bathroom, solid wood does not come cheap. Medium density fiberboard (MDF) on the other hand is much cheaper and lasts long when covered with laminate. For smaller bathrooms, glass is the ideal material to go with, as it has timeless style and gives the impression of space. You could also mix wood furniture with marble tops to give the bathroom a classy finish.

The storage aspect

If you are remodeling a bathroom that is used a lot in the house, then you want a vanity that has enough space for everyone's toiletries. This does not mean that you have to compromise on style; you can get something stylish that packs a mean storage punch. You can always find furniture from a flea market and re-purpose it to create a roomy bathroom vanity if most of the designs with a lot of storage have a high price tag.

Splurge on the showers 

The shower should also make a statement. There are many varieties that vary according to style, material and specifications. When it comes to the right shower, you need to keep in mind that it will be in constant use. Therefore, you should not spare anything when it comes to getting a unit that will withstand the wear and tear and still keep its appeal.
