How to work with an interior designer to turn your bathroom vision into a reality
Before any project begins, it is essential to share your vision with your interior designer. You likely have inspiration you are looking to draw from, and a visualization for your bathroom design. As your designer takes in such a vision, this is the opportunity to bring it to life. MDK Design Associates takes your lifestyle, budget and vision into consideration. Melanie Kokoros, Owner and Interior Designer develops a design concept that is tailored to you.
The first step in a collaboration is the design concept where we develop floor plans and a layout. You may envision a steam room to be placed in a spacious master bathroom, but what does this look like in proximity to the hydrotherapy tub? MDK Designs will work alongside you to develop a bathroom design floor plan that aligns with your vision. Once we agree with a floor plan, we further develop the design with 3-D renderings and material storyboards. The 3-D and colored renderings help clients understand the design in real time.
At this stage, Interior Designer Melanie Kokoros and her team at MDK Design Associates will begin to source materials. The design team reaches out to artisans and craftsmen. As trends and materials change and improve, experienced and knowledgeable home designers at MDK Designs are constantly educating themselves on the latest styles and modern concepts. Resources are shared with you so we can help bring your ideas to life.
Bathroom Design Trends
Interior Designers at MDK Designs emphasize large wood planks, oversized porcelain tile, and a combination of various materials and unique patterns. Varying shapes and designs, and bright new looks are current bathroom design trends. You may have an interest in eco-friendly flooring options, customized tile design, and unique solutions that are made just for you and your bathroom. This is the time to ask your interior designer questions, such as – “porcelain vs marble – what should I choose?” Quartz vs Stone, which is more durable? Cost and budgets?
Melanie will provide professional and experienced feedback to help you make the best decisions; porcelain, has no maintenance and is a very hard and dense material which makes it water resistant, stain resistant, and less likely to fade than marble. Marble is porous and can soak up stains over time. This is an excellent conversation to have with your interior designer. MDK Designs has over 15 years of experience to equip you with information to make the decisions for your home.

You may be developing a bathroom within a small space, or perhaps you are envisioning a luxury master bathroom within your home.
