Bathrooms used to serve no more than a practical function. If people didn’t need them, they’d be less than an afterthought. These days, though, bathrooms have come to represent better home value, as well as comfort and even luxury. Whether you’re building a home from the ground up or thinking about remodeling, remember the three F’s of bathroom planning. Here they are, explained.
- Form– Of course, everything should have form, and the form should be carefully thought out. For some, it’s easier to plan a large bathroom, but for others, a tiny one is a lot more straightforward. Whatever floor space you are allowed for the bathroom, it should reflect your personality and style. Don’t be afraid to mix and match and to scan online archives or flip through design magazines to find the form that speaks to you.
- Function– Any custom home builder knows a bathroom’s functionality is paramount, but it doesn’t have to be generic. What do you need? How about a wide shower stall? For a more relaxing time pampering yourself, a bathtub should be in order. If the budget permits, you might be able to install a few more features, even a built-in sauna, to make your bathroom truly yours.
- Feel– What do you want to feel the moment you open the bathroom door? This question begs an answer only you can give. Talk to your builder about what you need. Is it an homage to childhood memories, or a salute to modern living? Such questions have answers that spell the difference between a rustic bathroom and a minimalist one. From there, you can move on to other design aspects that complete the feel of your bathroom.
