When embarking on a design for your Sunnyvale bathroom remodel, a primary consideration is the layout of the bathroom space and how the space will be used.
The options available to you depend on a few factors.
Are you able to moving major plumbing and electrical?
The main consideration for this is budget. Moving major plumbing especially adds significant cost.
If you can, the sky is the limit and I recommend a process you might call the original cut and paste.
Get out some good old fashioned graph paper, make the boundaries of the room, cutout little representations of the things you will put in the room (tub, shower, vanity/sink, toilet, etc, etc) and literally move them around to look at various configurations.
It is sometimes surprising what insights this process reveals.
Then you are limited to decisions between a sink in a vanity (with storage space) vs a pedestal sink without storage, or a vanity that sits on the floor vs a wall mount cabinet that mounts higher up on the wall.
These small considerations make a big difference, especially when remodeling a small bathroom.
Can you combine two spaces?
The image with this post shows two options for a bathroom remodel. One using the space as is and the other with one wall being removed to make two smaller rooms into one.
In every case when you do this you give up something. In this case a toilet room. In some cases a linen closet. But it allows you to make the bathroom that much larger which might make all the difference in the world.
This of course is a variant of the fist option of moving major plumbing and elecrtrical.
We often constrain ourselves by thinking the way the space is laid out is the way the space must be laid out.
Sometimes when you free yourself of this constraint it’s amazing what options you start to see.
