Some people remodel a bathroom for the sole purpose of adding a bit of their own style. Sometimes, a bathroom is remodeled to make space for a new addition in the family, or for the opposite reason: when a child has gone off to college and parents can finally focus on building the home they’d love to retire in. Of course, larger families have different bathroom needs than smaller families, and it becomes tough to choose a bathroom style and configurations once there are two or more generations living in the same household.
