As you plan out your remodel first consider what works best for your family. Secondly consider what other homeowners might be looking for when buying your house. For instance, the current popular look includes walk-in showers and double bathroom sinks. Bathroom storage and over sized tubs are also desirable in today’s housing market.

- What materials are best to use to achieve the look a client is after.
- Advice on a bathroom layout that maximizes functionality and space used.
There are two things to consider when planning a bathroom remodel, your family and future buyers. For instance, if your family takes primarily showers leaving the tub unused, the tub can be replaced with a storage cabinet or vanity instead. But, make sure there is at least one tub in the house, as a future buyer might want one. If your family has a large number of people, you might consider separating the sink from the shower that way different people can get ready at once. As a good rule, what is sensible for your family in your home will probably be true for any buyer.
