Unused Space to Oasis – Before. The patio outside the master bathroom wasn’t being used, so the homeowners decided to turn it into an outdoor shower as part of their bathroom remodel. After. Frosted glass walls give the California homeowners privacy while they enjoy their new outdoor showering oasis. Designers Sol Quintana Wagoner and Marisela Contreras of Jackson Design & Remodeling used weatherproof materials and hardware to keep this extended bathing space looking great and working well.
Why A Bathroom is Worth Going Big. The bathroom can be a haven, a place where you take long soaks in the tub at the end of tiring days at work. Reason enough why a bathroom remodel is one of the best things you can do for you and your home.

Like fashion or furniture, remodeling bathroom follows trends. Functionality and innovation in style sweep the nation. Trends keep changing within weeks or months rather than a year or two as they used to. This hardly gives trend conscious homeowners who are planning to start a bathroom remodeling project, the time to catch their breath. So what’s new now? What’s in, and what’s out?
If you have a small bathroom, remodeling ideas should mostly revolve around freeing the space of clutter and making better use of the available space. Using shelves, taller cabinets, and other organizational items will help the room seem larger because everything has a place and there is nothing left to crowd the space. There are any number of cabinets available to fit over the toilet or along empty walls to maximize the available area, or cabinets can be hung on the wall to free up floor space.
Closed-In to Spacious – Before. The owners thought the existing 1980s style didn’t do enough to complement the beautiful views outside the window. And they didn’t love the dark shower stall or the laminate countertop. After. The new custom floating vanity made from walnut instantly catches the eye. Designer Rachelle Gervais complemented the vanity with a walnut-framed mirror that reflects light from the window and skylight throughout the room. To the right, Gervais replaced the shower stall with a glass one, which keeps the room feeling open and lets the homeowners take in the grand view while they shower.
