Bath Design— Bath Designers

Good designers are good listeners.  And kitchen and bath designers are particularly good listeners.  Their approach to bath design requires a balancing act.  They must properly balance your desires regarding design distinction, functionality and cost. They must learn whether the bath is primarily being remodeled for your personal enjoyment or for resale. They must ask a number of broad questions such as:  What is in your best interest?  Over the short term?  Over the long term?  What is your schedule?  What considerations are most important to you throughout the project?  They must also ask a number of detailed questions to be completely informed as to how you want your kitchen to turn out.


Kitchen and bath designers are more akin to engineers than artists or interior designers.  They must provide for the number of people and the way in which they use the bath and at what time of the day they use it.  Still they also must concern themselves equally with esthetics. This being the case you will see a number of them, broadly experienced, who have both interior design and kitchen and bath design backgrounds.

A Houston homeowner contemplating a bath remodel can do no better than to go to the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) website to evaluate and maybe hire a Houston kitchen and bath designer.  Most serious kitchen and bath designers are members of this group and many have certifications in their craft.  Certified Bath Designers (CBD’s) must go through training and testing to achieve their certification.  Houston ’s NKBA chapter has the honor this year of having Suzie Williford, one of its own Houston members who today is the National President of our 38,000 member body.  In years past Peggy McGowen from our Houston chapter had also been its National President.  This reflection of the obvious importance that Houston homeowners attach to their baths has resulted in the construction of many beautiful bathrooms in the Greater Houston area.

In Houston most kitchen and bath designers are employed by vendors. These vendors include cabinet vendors, plumbing hardware vendors, granite countertop vendors and others who all are a credit to their profession and give value to those who buy their products.  The specific and very knowledgeable advice they provide allows those who are remodeling their baths to make thoughtful, well informed buying decisions on bath products

In Houston in addition to these kitchen and bath designers working for vendors there are a smaller number of solo professionals who only do kitchen and bath design—they are not a contractor or dealer employee or a vendor.  They are completely independent and often make their living solely by designing kitchens and baths.  A few have had over 30 years experience in the industry.  Using them is always a good experience.
