This is the most difficult step. It’s always best to start from the very beginning. Remember your bathroom is relatively a much smaller space than any other rooms in your house. Make up your mind about the kind of style or theme and the primary functions your bathroom will serve as. Keeping in mind which bathroom you are thinking of remodeling is very crucial, because the master bathroom will always be different from a kid’s bathroom or even a guest bathroom.
