Taking on a bathroom remodeling project is a big step for most people. Some people dive right in and realize that they’re in over their heads. Other people spend years planning and organizing and never actually get the work started. We’ve each been both of these types of people at some point in time with one project or another. In creating this website, we hope to help you find a happy balance between those two extremes – to be the person who has adequately planned their renovation and gets to work as soon as possible.

Inspirational Remodeling Ideas
It’s okay if you’re beginning this process with absolutely no idea what you are doing or what your end goal is. Maybe you don’t know what interior décor style you want for your bathroom space; maybe you do. Either way, it’s always good to get a little inspiration before you begin – it gives you a jumping-off point.
One thing I like to remind people about their bathrooms is that bathrooms are a rather separate piece of the house. With the movement toward large, open, connected spaces, people have found that it is important to carry the same colors throughout their entire homes. Your bathroom, however, is usually tucked away behind walls and closed doors.
You can be a little adventurous in this design, straying somewhat from the design in the rest of your home. However, I still caution people against creating a futuristic, modern bathroom if the rest of their home is Victorian. What I mean by “adventurous” is that you can change your color palette slightly. For example, most of our home has a country contemporary feel and is made up mostly of olive greens, deep browns, dark woods, and beiges. Our bathroom, on the other hand, infuses some cool whites, beachy blues, and seafoam greens into the overall color palette.
