In a way, the tub is the bathroom equivalent of the bed, being the largest fixture in the room and most often a must-have. That being said, turning the tub into a focal point seems like a wonderful idea, especially in the case of a luxury bathroom where you have options such as the Koi bathtub. It has an aged brushed brass base and a beautiful patina. The exterior is decorated with scales reminiscent of the Japanese Koi carp. Looking at some of these products you're probably imagining that the remodel cost of a luxury bathroom would be very high. While that can definitely be true in some cases, it’s not necessarily a general rule. It’s possible to keep the cost low by focusing on some of the small pieces, the accessories such as the wall mirror or the sconces. Here, for example, you can see the Bronx mirror displayed above a Diamond vanity, complemented by two Burj wall lamps. Perhaps you could find your own winning combo.
Bathroom Layout Tip 2: Keep plumbing close to original. This applies primarily to a bathroom remodel, of course, although plumbing location does play into the design decisions of new construction as well. The toilet in particular is what will dictate the layout and design the most, because the 4” stack drain is difficult and very expensive to relocate. Most layouts, to stay on budget, will do well to design around the existing toilet`s location.
Bathroom Layout Tip 4: Incorporate storage. Whenever possible, get creative with bathroom storage. An over-the-door shelf, for example, can easily hold extra rolls of toilet paper or towels in even the most postage stamp-sized bathrooms. Soaps and toiletries, if they need a home in the bathroom, should be accounted for in the design of the bathroom layout, whether it's in the vanity cabinet or a shelving unit built into the wall between frame studs.
