Bathrooms are one of the most popular and commonly remodeled rooms in the home. And since they are a high-traffic space (and one where updates are noticeable), doing so can have a significant effect on resale value. When starting a bathroom remodeling project think about utility as well as design. Bathrooms are often difficult jobs because multiple components must be arranged to fit–and function–in a small space. There's also multiple water elements so doing the project correctly, from plumbing to ventilation, is imperative. Due to frequent use and the resulting wear and tear, bathrooms tend to start breaking down after about 20 years, whether that's a perpetually leaky faucet or crumbling grout or chipping tiles (or all three). On average, bathroom remodels cost $16,724, so your design should be both intentional and strategic in order to secure a high return on investment, as well as to create a functional space. That said, bathrooms are typically small, enclosed rooms so they are also a place in your home where you can play around a little bit with color and texture.
Drop-in sinks (lip-mounted sinks). What they are: In these sinks, the sink's lip is raised above the countertop, so it's essentially sitting on top of the countertop surface instead of being mounted beneath it. Benefits: These tend to be more cost efficient than other sinks, and they're easy to plan for and use since they easily "drop in" to the hole in the countertop (and even if the hole isn't the exact right size, the sink can still work, thanks to the lip that can cover any gaps). Pedestal sinks. What they are: The sink basin sits on top of a column (a pedestal). Benefits: Perfect for smaller baths since they take up less space. Here's a pic from one of our bathroom renovations. Downside? No storage underneath like you get with vanities.

Read on below for luxury bathroom ideas, as well as how to update your bathroom on a budget. The bathroom is generally one of the smallest spaces in the house, but that doesn't mean it can't be luxurious, even on a budget. Small touches, such as expensive-looking tiles or taps, will have more impact in a small space and won't be too costly. For inspiration, flick through our gallery below for design ideas that will add a touch of luxury to any bathroom. You can use pretty much anything for your bathroom floor as long as it's waterproof and won't get too slippery when wet. These days, most people choose tiles (marble or granite look good), sheeted or tiled vinyl (a sensible option if you're on a budget), or wood-effect laminate. It's also possible to have a hardwood floor, but you'll need to treat it and make sure you don't leave it wet.
