Renovating your bathroom is a big investment, so it’s important to do your homework before you start. We recommend that you start with a wish list and ask yourself the following questions:

How much space will you actually need? Will you be sharing the bathroom with others? Would you prefer to have the toilet included in that space? How large a mirror would you like to have? Will you be happy with a shower or pampering yourself in a bathtub is must?

In sum, functionality precedes all other considerations. After all, you’ll be the one to enjoy that space.

Next, we suggest that you prioritize your wishes into two list: a must-have list and all the rest. It’s important that you have a clear vision of how you want your revamped space to look, work and feel.

Once you’ve determined your wishes and balanced desired with possible, we suggest you considered the latest trend in bathroom design for 2016, which we feature in the gallery below. Cool tones, creative tile patterns, double headers, and a splash of hand-made and Moroccan tiles.
