Planning for bathroom furniture

Everyone starts and ends their day with a trip to the bath. This room, however, is often stylistically and spatially neglected: It�s often a few functional plumbing fixtures tucked into an exceptionally small room�not exactly a mood brightener!

For your bathroom building project, think beyond the basic box. Bathrooms can be open to the sun and the sky, a favorite garden, or a morning coffee bar. Match the style of your new bath to the personalities of its daily users, not to what you think a few visitors might expect to see. Keep track of even the most far-fetched ideas. Clever thinking might provide you with the perfect solution.

This website is designed to guide your dreams toward creating a workable plan, whether that involves incorporating a dreamy whirlpool tub or adding a powder room for convenience.

Inspiration is in every photograph, practical advice to move you through the planning process on every page. So draw a hot bath, toss in a rubber duck for company, and flip through the website to begin your project.

What's your style?

Before choosing the plumbing fixtures, even before setting the budget, think about style. After all, once all those practicalities enter the picture, truly indulgent thoughts are overshadowed by facts and figures. You needn t be overly specific, just think of the images and words that convey the abiding intent of your bathroom project: a spot of luxury, joyful colors, quiet repose, traditional elegance� whatever suits you. Use your style to guide all the choices you'll make in creating a plan.

Match Form to Function

Often a bathroom project starts because the space is dysfunctional: Even two people can create a crush trying to share a tiny mirror and sink to simultaneously prepare themselves to meet the day. Or an awkwardly placed tub allows no room to turn around and towel off after bathing. Consider all the functions required of a space. Then tackle the puzzle of trying to fit all the elements into the existing space. If, after all the math is done, there simply isn't enough room, look at the adjacent spaces. You may be able to "steal" a few precious square feet from a hallway or closet.
