Pursuing a bathroom remodel is one of the best ways to add value to your home and transform your space. However, remodeling a bathroom is anything but simple. There are many options to choose from, decisions to make, and factors to consider, making it easy to feel overwhelmed. With that in mind, Quality DesignWorks, your trusted Gainesville remodeling company, shares four essential factors to consider in any type of bathroom remodeling project.

The layout of your living space is a crucial part of any type of home remodel. Should you decide to change the existing arrangement, this process will likely be the most expensive part of the entire renovation. Additionally, changing the layout is typically a permanent alteration that can’t be changed once complete. As such, think critically about the functionality, amount of space, and other characteristics of your current bathroom’s layout, as well as how your new bathroom design can optimize how you view and use this space. There are countless ways to maximize space during a small bathroom remodel to best suit your needs.


Lighting is one of the most commonly overlooked components of the bathroom remodeling process, yet it is also one of the most crucial. Think about how difficult it is to complete daily grooming tasks, such as shaving or applying skincare products without a proper light source. Conversely, thoughtfully-selected bathroom lighting not only makes daily grooming easier, but it can also accentuate the best aspects of the space. When it comes to lighting, we love to layer the following three main lighting types in unique combinations to suit each remodel.

Accent Lighting

Accent lighting is used for highlighting a particular focal point, such as a statement fixture or work of art. Track lights, wall-mounted fixtures, and picture lights are standard, and they usually come with settings that allow users to brighten or dim the lighting strength at any given time.

Ambient Lighting

Ambient lighting, also known as general lighting, fills most of the room and allows you to move around safely. This type of lighting typically sources from wall-mounted fixtures, recessed lighting, or track lighting.

Task Lighting

As the name suggests, task lights are designed to help users complete a particular function — or task. This lighting type can include anything from a brightly lit sink mirror to a pendant lighting fixture that hangs above the bathtub.


The materials you choose are a vital consideration for any remodeling project. Still, the materials you select for a bathroom remodel are of even greater importance, as they make up the majority of the room’s aesthetic appearance and functional potential. There is little to hide behind in a bathroom, so you want to ensure that every material you select is the right one. Our team design-build experts can help you navigate available bathroom ideas and work with you to determine ideal materials for flooring, countertops, cabinets, storage, bath/shower fixtures, backsplashes, waterproofing, lighting, and specialty features.


While planning bathroom makeovers, consider the aesthetics of the room and those of the overall home. A bathroom might lead with functionality, but it doesn’t mean it should be entirely without aesthetic value. The materials you choose for the bathroom act as the backbone of your design. Once selected, you can focus purely on aesthetic factors (like paint colors or specialty features) that complement your backdrop. Our team can help you decide what direction to take and how to best approach each aspect of the design-build process, from start to finish. Contact us today to get started!
