We start and finish our day there, taking a shower, brushing our teeth and generally getting comfortable. A well-designed bathroom should be a comfortable space intertwined with functionality. Only then will your bathroom address all of your physical and spiritual needs.
When you approach a bathroom renovation project, it’s often hard to figure out where to start. We at Royal Home Improvements decided to help you by putting together this short list of bathroom renovation ideas. It should be more than enough to get you started. Enjoy!
Invest in Flooring
Everything is built from the ground up, and there is no other room where flooring durability is more important than in the bathroom. This specific room collects humidity at high temperatures so choosing a durable waterproof material like stone or ceramic tile will not only keep your floors looking beautiful longer, but will ad some texture too! If you want to pamper yourself and really add value, install subfloor heating coils or a heated towel bar for those frigid mornings!
Basic Fixtures are Essential
Choosing the cabinets, vanity, and finishing touches can be a bit overwhelming with all the available options. Remember to match them to your space and be aware of your limitations. Large cabinet vanities are useful but can look a bit bulky in a smaller bathroom, where a pedestal or wall mounted sink will fit far better. When choosing the bathtub, sit in it and see how comfortable you are. The style of tub you choose can really impact the look of a room as it often becomes the focal point in smaller bathrooms.
If you don’t take baths but prefer a shower, you can save a lot of space by removing the bathtub entirely. Dedicating the vacated space to be used by storage cabinets or an extra sink.
Buy a Good Toilet
If you have a flexible budget, you can find a fancy toilet with automatic and heated seats, built in bidet and lights for late night use. But there are plenty of options that don’t require you to break the bank. A quality one-piece mid-range toilet with an elongated seat will be much more comfortable than the default low-level ones.
Use Space Wisely
This is most important for smaller homes, or larger families with shared bathrooms. When you only have so much space to accommodate all accessories, cosmetics and skin care products, you have to get creative. For example, you can use the space between wall studs to install a tall recessed storage cabinet inside the wall. Vertical storage solutions are versatile, convenient and use up minimal floor space. The cabinet will be simply perfect if it has an interior depth of three inches and a door flush with the wall.
Share Space When Possible
If you have a home with back-to-back bathrooms, a shared shower with access from both sides may vacate a lot of floor space in both. Instead of a shower, you can share a large cabinet with swiveling shelves for best access from both sides.
Finish with nice decorative lighting, a stylish backsplash and a unique looking mirror and you’re done! For additional information, ideas and pricing, contact Royal Home Improvements now, your best Toronto bathroom renovation specialists. We are here for you!
