The bathroom is one of the most important rooms in your house. Bathrooms are intimate spaces that must reflect how you use them. So when considering designing or remodeling one in your home, asking yourself how you use the bathroom—aside from the obvious—is key.

For example, are you the hurry-and-get-ready type? Then a large, walk-in shower might be the focal point of your bathroom, complete with multiple shower heads, efficient task lighting or perhaps a sun tunnel overhead to welcome in natural light as you begin your day.

Or maybe you take time to linger and enjoy the space. That may mean you need heated floors, a roomy soaking tub, a shower/sauna combination or a customized, back-saving vanity complete with special lighting for make-up application.

And who will be using the space? Is it a romantic room for two or a family-friendly area that needs to accommodate the needs of many? Do you need a bathtub for small children with plenty of storage niches for bath toys? Or will you skip a tub altogether to create the walk-in shower of your dreams?

Do you need a traditional five-piece master bath or is this a main-level powder room that demands the “wow” factor to impress guests?

And if you’re an extreme earlier riser who prides himself on getting to work early, do you need a walk-in closet attached to your bathroom instead of your room so you don’t wake your sleeping spouse as you get ready?

These and many others are the questions we will guide you through to ensure you get the bathroom you desire. From high-quality materials to energy-efficient toilets, efficient task and natural lighting techniques to ADA/aging-in-place concepts, Urban Scope can create a bathroom to suit every need for you and your family.

To get started on your bathroom project, here are some questions you should ask yourself before beginning:

  • Why are you remodeling?
  • How do you need to use this space?
  • How much storage do you need?
  • What structural “bones” are you working with or against?
  • How do you want it to look and feel?
  • How much do you want to spend?
