A custom lake home bathroom is a prime consideration for your family and guests. Whether you are building a new cabin or renovating an existing one, there are several considerations you need to keep in mind when designing your bathroom. E.L. Builders, LLC, can help you design an exhilarating and relaxing personal oasis for your new or existing cabin by the lake. Here are the top five considerations we’ll guide you through.

1. Space Constraints

The first consideration is the available space in your cabin. Most lake cabins have limited space, and you need to plan your lake home bathroom accordingly. You should consider the number of people who will be using the bathroom, the fixtures you want to include, and the storage space you need. You can also use built-in storage solutions, such as shelves, cabinets, or niches, to save floor space.

2. Plumbing and Electrical Systems

The second consideration is the plumbing and electrical systems in your cabin. You need to make sure that your bathroom fixtures are compatible with your plumbing system and that you have enough water pressure and hot water supply. You also need to consider the electrical requirements of your bathroom, such as lighting, ventilation, and heating. E.L. Builders design experts will help you select the best components.

3. Style and Design

The third consideration is the style and design of your bathroom. You should choose a style that complements the rest of your cabin and reflects your personal taste. You can choose from various styles, such as rustic, modern, coastal, or farmhouse. You should also consider the color scheme, materials, and textures of your bathroom fixtures, such as the tiles, countertops, sinks, faucets, and showerheads.

4. Accessibility and Safety

The fourth consideration is the accessibility and safety of your lake home bathroom. You should design your bathroom to be accessible for people of all ages and abilities, including children, seniors, and people with disabilities. You should also ensure that your bathroom is well-ventilated to prevent mold and mildew growth.

5. Maintenance and Cleaning

The fifth consideration is the maintenance and cleaning of your bathroom. You should choose materials and fixtures that are easy to clean and maintain, such as ceramic tiles, quartz countertops, and chrome faucets. You should also install a shower drain with a hair catcher for easy cleaning.
