7 Golden Rules of Bath Remodeling
With a little guidance and design know-how, it's easy to create a bathroom that meets your every need.
3. Don't Go Overboard
Take design cues from the house.
"Don't create a showroom out of a remodeled bathroom," Ingram says. "Use some of the same materials, colors, and textures that appear in the other rooms."
If the house has decorative wainscoting, arched doorways, beaded-board paneling, or similar points of style, consider echoing those features. An updated bath should not appear to be an island of architecture or design -- modernist touches will look out of place in a cottage, for example. The goal is a renovation that harmonizes with the existing structure.
