Most people know the feeling they want to create in their homes, but they’re not always sure how to go about making it happen. It’s worth getting it right, though, as the interior design of your home is what makes it more comfortable and enjoyable.
At J.T. McDermott Remodeling, we pride ourselves on bringing a fresh and exciting approach to St. Louis interior design. We love working with textures, color, and different eras to create one-of-a-kind interiors that are functional and beautiful to look at.
St. Louis Interior Design: Bathrooms
When you work with a certified bathroom designer you learn how to best utilize the space you have while getting the features and design elements you always wanted. J.T. McDermott Remodeling Contractors is one of the only design build companies in the Greater St. Louis area that has two in-house designers. This offers a lot of benefits to the clients we work with.
Where other firms send you to talk to the designers who work for vendors, we work side by side with the other talented people involved in the design and construction of your bathroom remodel. And, because we’re involved in every step of the design build process, we help solve design and layout issues before they become problems. Our remodeling process is set up to make sure the client does as little “work” as possible. This seamless and comprehensive approach makes for an enjoyable and less stressful experience.
As we plan your dream bathroom, we focus on giving you all the latest design trends and technology you want without giving your new bathroom a cookie-cutter look. We love to experiment with new materials, fixtures, and materials, and constantly look for way to use things in different ways.
Bathroom Design Ideas
Bathroom remodels can range from simple considerations like new shower, tub, vanity, and toilet designs to complete renovations that involve removing walls, moving plumbing, and reimagining the space. Here are just some of our favorite trending bathroom design ideas.
- Showers & Tubs: From comfortable to luxurious, showers and tubs are often the focal point of a new bathroom. Many people are now choosing to forego a tub in the master suite, but others use freestanding or claw-foot tubs to make a statement. Spa showers with a variety of shower heads, benches, and tiled alcoves for bath products are extremely popular.
- Cabinetry: The traditional single-sink vanity has taken a back seat and homeowners now have a wide variety of cabinetry styles to choose from. From double-sink vanities to custom linen and cabinets, bathroom cabinetry today is a beautiful blend of form and function that embraces your personal style, be it contemporary, vintage, Old World, or traditional.
- Flooring: People expect a lot from their bathroom floors: they must be tough yet beautiful, slip-resistant, and immune to water penetration. Stone and ceramic tiles are a beautiful choice in a bathroom and can be treated with a slip-resistant finish. They’re also extremely durable, easy to clean, and resist water, stains, and wear.
Finally, it’s no surprise that subdued color palettes remain at the top of most homeowner’s list. Muted grays and singular white give a sophisticated and elegant look. A layered neutral look is the perfect choice for a contemporary space, and classic color schemes like tan, beige, white, and light grey are typical for transitional baths.
One of the most rewarding parts about working with a bathroom designer is discovering how fun it can be to think outside the design box. Renowned interior designer Bunny Williams, who herself has a passion for the classic and unexpected combined, is a firm believer that “If you love something, it will work.” That’s the only real rule.” We agree.
