Bathroom Design Ideas

While kitchens have several tried-and-true layouts to design around, bathrooms can be configured in nearly any way, shape, or form. Although there are code requirements to consider when planning the space, your bathroom’s design potential depends mainly on your tastes, needs, and budget.

Bathroom Options

Master Suite Baths – A well-designed master bath not only adds a bit of luxury to your day-to-day, but also increases the efficiency of your mornings. Maximized space, functional storage, separate dressing areas, and double sinks add up to more room for two people to get up and get going! We’ve designed Northern Virginia bathrooms that include:

  • Dual-head showers
  • Whirlpool and soaking tubs
  • Glass-enclosure showers with benches
  • Separate water closets for optimum privacy
  • Radiant heat flooring
  • Glass block windows
  • Mosaic tile

Guest Baths and Powder Rooms – Many homeowners delight in creating a warm, welcoming space for guests in their secondary bathrooms and powder rooms. These rooms can also provide the opportunity to express creativity and personal style. Whether you go spa or rustic, remodeling your guest bath with indulgent features and attractive fixtures will make it a comfortably-appointed space. Our clients have chosen features like these for their guest baths and powder rooms:

  • Tile wainscoting
  • Granite countertops
  • Walk-in showers
  • Laundry closets with stacked washer and dryer

Plumbing Possibilities

If you’re using your bath’s existing drains and hook-ups, you will need to choose products that will fit into their arrangement. Your options will increase if you are adding or moving plumbing.


  • Recessed or corner tubs – These common styles typically are enclosed within three walls, with only one side of the tub exposed. This style is often used when a homeowner wants a shower/tub combo or is outfitting a smaller bathroom.
  • Freestanding tubs – Freestanding tubs—exposed on all sides—offer more options as far as placement and style are concerned. Styles range from vintage-look clawfoot tubs to set-in whirlpool and jetted tubs.


Your new or remodeled bath’s purpose should help you decide what type of sink to choose. A double-bowl vanity is a practical choice for a master bath or a hall bath shared by a large family. A decorative, showpiece vessel sink can bring color and interest to a small powder room.

  • Pedestal – Ideal for a small bathroom or powder room.
  • Vanity – Excellent choice for a bathroom that gets a lot of use; double sinks or extra counter space can help make the room more functional, as can storage areas underneath.
  • Wall-hung – Seen often in modern and contemporary baths.


Gone are the days when you just had a standard toilet installed! Today you can choose from several energy-efficient varieties, as well as different looks. From sleek, contemporary lines to hand-painted scenes, there’s a toilet style out there for every taste!

  • Dual-flush – A smart way to save water, dual-flush toilets allow you, usually via a split button, to flush with either .08 gallons or 1.6 gallons of water.
  • One-piece – One-piece toilets are less common and often more expensive, but some homeowners find their sleeker look appealing and see them as easier to clean than traditional two-piece commodes.
  • Two-piece – The most common toilet style, where the separate bowl and tank pieces are attached with bolts.
