What do you want the master bathroom to include? Will your master bath be a master bathroom suite? What’s the difference, you may ask! Well, often the master bathroom suite includes closets as well as a dressing area. The key is to make sure that two people will be able to get around without bumping into each other and that the space never feels cramped.

Here are some key questions to answer as you develop your plans for remodeling your master bathroom suite:

Which areas-of-function are essential to your master bathroom suite’s success? Prehaps you envision his and hers dressing areas, a place for her to apply makeup, a place for him to shave, in addition to the showering area. Make a list of what’s important to you. Your list will help define your areas! Working with an experienced design/build team like RemodelWerks allows you to hammer out the details on how make your specified areas as functional as possible. The last thing you want to do go to the expense of remodeling your master bath only to discover the areas are cramped together.

How will the areas differ in design elements? The great thing is that with so many tile materials and patterns from which to choose, with the help of RemodelWerks you can design the master bathroom suite of your dreams that effortlessly incorporates while delineating the areas.

How can I make the space open while fully functional? One of the challenges for many homeowners is coming up with a redesign that gives their master bathroom suite the needed privacy without sacrificing an open-air feel. RemodelWerks can help you create negative space around vanities and wardrobes, so the space is functional and open. Also, we’ll work with you to determine the best approach to shower design. Perhaps the space isn’t that large, why not consider a glass shower in that case to create the illusion of more space?!  

Is the space ventilated properly? Talk with your general contractor about how to ensure that the entire master bathroom suite—from the showering and bathing area to the dressing area are properly ventilated. Also, it’s a good idea to incorporate a timer switch into the space, that way you can circulate air for a specified period of time post-bath or shower to prevent mold and mildew without having to think about it!
