Flooring Styles to Consider
In order to organize the right layout for your bathroom, you will want to start off with implementing new flooring. Some of the most popular flooring types include hardwood, laminate, tile and natural stone. Hardwood flooring may seem like a great idea and may match the scheme of your home however you may want to consider the moisture levels in your bathroom. Moisture will allow your hardwood flooring to expand and contract. Laminate flooring is a great alternative as you can create the look of hardwood without the hassle of maintaining it. Proper installation of laminate is also crucial.
Tile and natural stone is a great flooring material to use in your bathroom as it offers an elegant and crisp look. Known for its durability, they are easy to maintain for those with kids or pets. Additionally, you have the option of choosing many patterns and layouts with tiles to fit virtually any theme of your bathroom.
Choosing the best bathroom sink doesn’t have to be complicated. Think about the amount of space you have in your bathroom which will help you decide the size of your sink. Then, consider the shapes you want such as oval, circular, square (to fit corners), etc. Once you have an idea of the size and shape of your sink, you will want to consider these sink types: drop-in bathroom sink, under-mount bathroom sink, vessel sinks, wall mount sinks, and vanity sinks.

Shower and Tub
The shower and tub in your bathroom are an essential focal point. These are the largest items that can take up quite a bit of space in your bathroom. You will want to ensure that you not only have the right amount of space and height available. If you have a smaller bathroom area, you may want to consider a clawfoot tub or sliding shower doors. If you own a large bathroom, consider a walk-in shower or installing a fancier tub. Whether you are looking for a modern, contemporary style or something rustic or traditional, the experts at Roy Briley General Contracting can help guide you in the right direction.
Want more light in your bathroom? Skylights can help bring in natural light to your bathroom. Consider a traditional skylight or a tube-style skylight. Alternatively, use ceiling-mounted fixtures or even pendant lights for a more personalized touch. Lastly, including the right lighting around the mirror in your bathroom is important. You will want to ensure proper lighting is installed such as a wall mount above the mirror to eliminate shadows.
