5 Ideas for Creating Focal Points in Your Bathroom

Posted by Ben Thompson on 05.19.19

Bathrooms may be the smallest rooms in your home, but they’re also the most used by both your family and your guests.  This is why bathroom remodels top the list of many homeowners’ wish lists. Designing small spaces can be challenging. Bathrooms in particular require a layout that maximizes functionality and careful selection of materials and finishes the best suit the owner’s preferences. Focal points are an important part of every renovation design, especially in bathrooms. They are the details that create visual interest and anchor points for your aesthetic choices.

One thing we love about designing a bathroom remodel is identifying opportunities for focal points. If you are looking for some ideas or inspiration for your own remodel, take a look at these 5 examples.
