When it comes to bathroom remodeling, homeowners are far more interested in expressing their individuality and sense of style than they are in following current bathroom design or decorating trends.
Should You Work with A Bathroom Designer?
(and where to find one)
You've been thinking about designing a new bathroom for a while now. You may have bought decorating magazines and possibly a book on bathroom ideas. But glossy pictures and showroom glitz are hard to imagine in your own bathroom, and there is so much you imagine doing in this limited space!
We are here to assist you with this daunting yet exciting project. Here are two ways to help you create the bathroom that will meet all your expectations. There are two national associations that have training and education for designers: The American Society of Interior Decorators (ASID) and the National Bath and Kitchen Association (NKBA).
Furthermore, most certified bathroom designers are associated with kitchen and bathroom showrooms and dealers, and several hundred of the best professionals have formed two buying groups that give them greater purchasing power, guidance, and support. These buying groups are the Bath and Kitchen Buying Group (BKBG) and the Signature Executive Network (SEN).
Both SEN and BKBG gather creative, knowledgeable designers.

Working with these certified designers will give you access to better pricing and the finest professionals who are able to provide all the accessories and equipment you will need for designing your new bathroom.
Some web sites are now also offering a computerized design service. Using their downloadable software, you can drag and drop images of accessories onto the room plan you’ve drawn, but these softwares are still a bit difficult to use and not very user friendly. You will find the best software on diyonline.com and bathweb.com. Some sites will provide you with an instant quotation tool as well. For this, check Improvenet.com, HomeDepot.com, Reftools.com (click here for the list).
