How to Visualize Your Floors or Kitchen and Bath Remodel

Wednesday, June 17, 2020 10:00 AM

Many times, it's hard to visualize how your kitchen or bath remodel will look like. After all, you're reviewing small sample pieces of tile to commit to something big - a remodel - and you don't want to make a mistake. Luckily, there's a solution: a visualizer. 

And, at Floor Decor Design Center, you have several options to work with.

1. Visualize New Products in Your Own Room

When you visit floordecorct.com, you'll notice in the bottom right hand corner an icon with a cell phone as you see below.

Visualize New Products in Your Own RoomWhat that icon allows you to do is to pick the product you're interested in, snap a photo of a room you're looking to remodel and view how new products might look. In other words, you get to visualize using your own space... Cool, no?

And, if you already have a photo you want to use, you can use that not just on your mobile device but also on your desktop.

Really cool, no?

Visualize New Floors in 3 Easy Steps

It's essentially a three-step process.

Step 1 - Select a product from the Floor Decor Design Center product catalog.

Step 2 - Upload the photo of your room.

Step 3 - See how the product looks in your room.

2. For Your Bathroom and Kitchen Remodel, Here's How to Visualize It!

In addition, when you visit FloorDecorCT.com, you'll discover two visualizer tools on Design Tools (in the top header), one for bathrooms and the other for kitchens. Let's explore each one.

The Bathroom Visualizer

Use this bathroom visualizer to see what your bathroom remodel will look like

With the bathroom visualizer, you can visualize different cabinet, countertop, floor tile and wall  tile options.

This virtual tool offers you two layouts to experiment with:

  • One with a mosaic focal wall inset in the shower
  • One with a mosaic band from the floor to hip-height and again from the shower nozzle to the ceiling.

Both feature a vanity and mirror so you can get a feel for how all of the bathroom elements work together. Based on these two different bathroom settings, you can use the tool to mix and match your choice of colors to help you visualize the ideal bathroom. More specifically, you can select options for:

  • Mosaic details in the shower. These range from octagon, basketweave, rhomboid, interlocking strips, splitface, and more traditional mosaics.
  • Base floor tile choices include square and rectangular shaped tile.
  • Cabinet colors include black, cherry, espresso, grey, maple and off-white 
  • You can also customize the countertop to be as exotic or muted as possible. 

Below, you see a black vanity cabinet with a white carrara marble countertop. On the floor and walls, a square-shaped Arabescato Carrara polished tile. And, in the shower, a wall feature with Arabescato Carrara polished mosaics.

Once you've created your dream combination, you can easily email, print, or save your favorites to help in making your final selections. 

The Kitchen Visualizer

Use this kitchen visualizer to see what your kitchen remodel will look like

The kitchen visualizer includes two kitchens, each with two views - one being a close up of the backsplash since that is such a strong design element for a kitchen. One kitchen is traditional the other modern. Both default to the same choices: Alaska White countertop with a Bergamo Herringbone polished mosaic for the backsplash, coffee-colored cabinets and a rectangular-shaped Aria Bianco tile on the floors.

You can see the traditional kitchen below.

What this highlights is how you can mixed different patterns yet make them work based on a similarity of color family, or a related pattern or with your choice of cabinets.

If you need help with your kitchen redesign and how best to configure the layout and choice of cabinetry, be sure to work with Floor Decor Design Center's partner, J&J Complete Home.

By the way, when it comes to Quartz countertops, you can also make use of the Cambria virtual design tool on your mobile device. It allows you to see how your very own countertops look in different styles.

Backsplashes play a particularly important role in the kitchen where they can add considerable visual interest. Who doesn't want a fun, visually inspiring kitchen when you think how much time is spent there socializing and interacting with friends and family?

That doesn't even take into account how an arabesque, zigzag or herringbone mosaic pattern can completely transform the look and feel of a kitchen! We documented that in See How New Flooring Transforms 1980s Connecticut Condo where you'll see arabesque tile in the kitchen and a fabulous zigzag mosaic in a niche in the bathroom.

Once you've created your dream combination, you can easily email, print, or save your favorites to help in making your final selections.

Once You've Visualized Your Remodel, What's Next?

A visualizer represents a first step to getting started on your remodel. After all, it helps you gain clarity over some of your tile preferences and allows you to move forward. Plus, you can do so from the privacy of your computer without having to interact with others. 

Once you've gained that clarity, you'll want to connect with professionals who can help design your kitchen or bath and finalize your flooring decisions, advise you on the benefits of different material choices and complete the installation of the different kitchen and bath products and materials you've selected.
