7 Steps To Your own oasis . . .


   Your Bath Design

  • The design of your bathroom is usually determined by the decor and proximity to adjacent areas as well as the style of your home. Therefore, your bath will be complimentary.
  • The style of most baths today is luxurious and rivals the hotel or spa bath. We all want the comfort of a hotel bedroom and bath at home.  Developing this feel provides us with our own private retreat. 
  • Developing a bath design can be your place to shine. This space can be a dramatic accent to your home decor. This may be a great place to start if you are just beginning to determine your home's design direction. As a small space, it's easy to get a feel for your design style.  


   Your Bath Plan

  • Most bathroom plans are basic and usually determined by your plumbing placement.  
  • Unless you want to encounter a major expense or, are still in the pre-construction or design stage, this is a major factor in your plan. 
  • However, there may be room for some minor adjustments. 


The Powder Room . . .

  • Your powder room can be one of the most striking spaces in your home. Usually a small space, a powder room can handle lots of drama.
  • Deep rich colors and strong accents work well.  Always include specialty items for your guests.
