No matter where a bathroom is in your home, you want it to be a space where there’s plenty of light, plenty of comfort, and the perfect fixtures. From the mirror to the faucet, you want everything to work together as a cohesive whole, whether you’re in your master bath or the powder room off your entryway. At Hermitage in Nashville, we can help you design and build the space you’ve always wanted, so if you’re thinking about bathroom remodeling, contact us today!
Making a Plan
Bathrooms are no longer simple utilitarian spaces where you have a sink, a toilet, and perhaps a shower or bathtub. In modern design, they are luxurious spaces where you can get ready in style in the morning, or relax with a nice, hot bath in the evening. The fixtures and taps are more elegant than ever, and you may be thinking about how you can incorporate that elegance into your home. On the other hand, you may want something that is a bit more simple, yet still sophisticated, and that’s perfectly acceptable as well.
At Hermitage our design team will sit down with you to make a plan for your new bathroom. During this complimentary consultation, we’ll discuss everything from style to budget, along with the goals you have for your home. Above all, we want you to feel confident that you’ve made the right choice in trusting us.
Once you’ve decided what you want to do with your bathroom, we’ll get started on creating a presentation package for you. We’ll come to your house to take measurements of the space that will be remodeled, and using those figures, we’ll draw up a design plan that shows exactly what will be done. This will help you visualize the space and how it will look once renovations are complete.
This can be a very exciting time of the remodeling process, but it can also be the most overwhelming. You’re thinking about everything that needs to be done, and you know that it may be some time before the finished product is realized. You may also see something that you have changed your mind on, and if that’s the case, there’s nothing to worry about. We can make adjustments to ensure that you are getting exactly what you want. Once the final proposal is approved, we’ll get to work on installing your new bathroom!
The Building Phase
There can be quite a lot of materials and supplies that are necessary for a bathroom remodel. Depending on which space is being renovated, we’ll order the proper fixtures, finishes, and other products for your project. Once everything is delivered, we’ll get started on the installation. Our team has years of experience, and we know how to work quickly and diligently, while following the plan every step of the way. We always pay attention to detail, and we’ll keep you updated on our progress.
If you have a vision in your head of what you want your master bathroom to look like, or you’re renovating your basement and you want to add another bathroom, let Hermitage help you with the design and installation. We’ll create a beautiful space that you’ll love using every chance you get, and we can help you choose everything from the lighting to the mirror to the tile in the shower.

What Style Do You Prefer?
Before you begin the design phase with our team, think about what style of decor your prefer. Do you like bright colors, or do you prefer more muted, earthy tones? Do you want your new bathroom to be shiny and contemporary, or do you want it to hearken back to an age gone by? Regardless of your personal style, it’s important to know what you like and what you don’t like, as that will inform our design team when they’re helping you choose fixtures, finishes, and other aspects of your new bathroom.
The Color Palette
When it comes to your bathroom’s color palette, do you see it blending with the rest of the house, or do you want it to “pop” when someone walks through the door? Perhaps you’ve always envisioned a bright blue color on one wall, while the rest of the walls are a neutral or complimentary color. Narrowing down your color palette will help you pick the materials that will be suitable for your new space.
Countertops and Cabinets
Once you’ve decided on style and color, you can begin choosing what will actually go into your bathroom – namely, the countertops and cabinets. You can of course choose the tub and shower surround, but the material you pick for the countertop can inform your decision for the bathing and showering area (or vice versa). When it comes to countertops, you may want a granite or quartz option, and there is virtually an endless amount of options to choose from when it comes to color and finish. Perhaps you want porcelain sinks and multi-colored tiles surrounding your double vanity mirrors – whatever you want, we can do!
For the cabinets under your counters, think about what type of finish you want. Do you want the shiny, industrial look of metal, or do you prefer the more traditional look of stained wood? Perhaps you want the dark stain of the wood to offset the clean white look of the countertop, and there are thousands of combinations from which to choose. You’ll also want to think about the configuration of your bathroom cabinets and cupboards, making sure they’re functional as well as appealing.
The Finishing Touches
Regardless of which colors and stains you choose for your counters and cabinets, the entire room doesn’t come together until the finishing touches are applied. The tile, the crown moulding, and other design aspects are what make the room feel complete, and above all, we want to fulfill the vision you had for your new bathroom. The right mirror, the right artwork and decor, and other small details can make your new space the elegant room you’ve always wanted.

New Bathroom Lighting
Your new bathroom could be the most beautiful space in the world, but what good is that beauty without the proper lighting? At Hermitage in Nashville, we love helping homeowners find the perfect bathroom lighting fixtures. When it comes to remodeling, lighting is what truly gives the space its dimensions and creates the ambiance that you’ve been wanting for years.
When you’re getting ready for work in the morning or getting ready for bed at night, you’re most likely standing in front of the mirror for several minutes at a time. You might be shaving, putting on makeup, or brushing your teeth, but whatever the case may be, you need the proper lighting above and around your vanity.
The mistake that many people make is that they put one fixture above their mirror and have no other lighting sources around the vanity. Lighting that comes from directly above your head can cast shadows and lines across your face, making it difficult to shave or to put on makeup properly. By adding wall sconces on either side of the mirror, along with a vanity light above it, you can have light from multiple directions, which illuminates your face and makes grooming tasks much easier.
Your vanity fixtures won’t be the only light sources in the room, and the ambient lighting is essential to setting the tone for the space. Whereas many people in the past chose flush or semi-flush fixtures for their general lighting, designers are now incorporating mini chandeliers and other elegant options into bathrooms. The main light should make a statement, and it can inform the rest of the decor in the room, such as the artwork or any curios you place in the bathroom.
Recessed lighting has found its way from the kitchen and the living room into the bathroom, and these in-ceiling fixtures can be a great addition to your new space. When placed above the bathtub or shower, you can provide general illumination for those spaces without having to worry about a fixture that hangs down too low. You can also put these fixtures on dimmer switches, which will allow you to set the proper levels for those evening soaks in the tub or for those mornings when you have to be up early and you don’t want bright light waking you up too quickly.
Speaking of dimmer switches, it’s essential that you have the proper lighting controls in your new bathroom. One switch can’t do it all, and it’s best to have different controls for your vanity lights, your recessed lights, and your main fixture. Dimmers on your recessed and main lights will let you set the appropriate levels for a certain time of day, and you can transform your bathroom into the space you need it to be. If you have a water closet that has its own door, be sure that the light in there has its own switch as well.
Lighting is one of the most important elements of any room, and when it comes to the bathroom, there are many aspects to think about when planning your remodel. At Hermitage in Nashville, our showroom is full of amazing options for your project, and we would love nothing more than to help you find the perfect light fixtures.
New Bathroom Fixtures
Once you’ve chosen the countertops, the cabinets, the paint color, and the lighting, there’s only one aspect left to pick – the fixtures. Those things that truly make a bathroom a bathroom – the shower, the sink, the toilet, and the tub – need to be absolutely perfect, otherwise you may feel like what you had in mind did not come to fruition. At Hermitage, we’re more than happy to help you find your new bathroom fixtures!
A New Double Vanity
Perhaps one of the main reasons you’re remodeling your bathroom is that you’re tired of only having one sink. Maybe you have to share it with your spouse or partner, making it nearly impossible for you to both get ready at the same time in the morning. On top of only having one sink, the countertop may not be very wide, making it difficult to use the mirror while the other person uses the sink. A new double vanity can do wonders for your enjoyment of your bathroom, and our design team can help you choose the perfect options when it comes to sinks and faucets.
Your New Toilet
Everyone wants to be comfortable when they use the toilet, and if you’re updating your bathroom, it makes sense to update the toilet as well. If you’ve seen a modern option in a design catalog, or you love the idea of having one that’s self-cleaning, we can make sure you end up with the toilet you want.
New Shower and Tub
Using a shower or tub that’s too small isn’t enjoyable for anyone, and the main goal of your remodel may be to expand the bathing area. You may want an expansive shower surround that has multiple shower heads and jets, along with a bench or seat built into the wall. If you’ve been thinking about finally having that Jacuzzi tub where you can sit back and relax while the lights are set low, we can help you find the right fixtures that will enhance your bathroom and your enjoyment of the space. If you’re limited on space, we can help you find the perfect shower/tub combo that provides you with the functionality you need and the comfort you want.
The right bathroom fixtures, whether it’s a new toilet, tub, or sink, can make your space what you truly want it to be, and it can greatly improve your comfort levels. At Hermitage, our design team will work tirelessly to help you discover the best options for your home.
