Tips for Renovating Your Bathroom

A beautiful bathroom will create a relaxing space for you to unwind. But the design process can be a big project. Here are several tips to help you end up with a great result during bathroom renovations.

Walk-in Shower

A walk-in shower is created with a fixed screen or screens but no door. These enclosures create a luxe, sleek look, as a door typically has hinges or other hardware to move and a handle. By eliminating the door, you eliminate all this clutter as well. The sleeker silhouette will also help to create a more spacious feel in the bathroom. And they can be cost-effective, as you don't have to pay for the door.

Neutral, Pale Colours

To make your bathroom seem bigger, use neutral, soft tones around the room. You could lay white, pale grey or soft pink tiles on the walls. You could install a blonde timber vanity and an ivory stone countertop. Natural textures will help to add warmth and texture to the room.

Shower Niche

Many showers use glass screens, which create an open, expansive feeling in the room. However, transparent screens let you see into the shower, and bulky shower caddies can ruin the sleek effect. A shower niche will prevent this from happening with its seamless contoured look. Of course, a cavity is also a handy spot for your shampoo, conditioner and body wash.

Shower Bench

Why not install a shower bench to give your shower a luxurious ambience? It doesn't take up much room, and you can continue a seamless wall of earthy, light-coloured stone or ceramic tiles. A bench seat is also practical, offering a spot for you to sit.

Echo Room Proportions

When renovating a bathroom, you'll have to decide on the shape of large items like the vanity. Keep the room proportions in mind and install an appropriate design. For example, if your bathroom is long and skinny, you can echo these proportions with a long and shallow vanity. In a square room, opt for a more evenly proportioned vanity.

Recessed Storage

You may be able to install some recessed storage on the bathroom walls. For example, a mirrored cabinet set into the wall will offer extra shelves while not taking up much room. You may be able to add niches elsewhere on the walls. But if you do, try to only use them for decorative items such as candles. Otherwise, the room can look cluttered with messy storage open-to-view without a door.

Floating Vanity

A floating vanity doesn't cover up the flooring but hangs on the wall instead. This helps make the bathroom seem larger, as you can see and sense the floor underneath the vanity. Conversely, a vanity that reaches the floor functions as a pseudo wall, making the room boundaries seem closer.

Large Mirrors

Mirrors will help to give the sense that the wall continues further back, and the bathroom will feel more spacious as a result. Plus, mirrors also reflect light for a brighter, airier room. Thus, make the vanity mirror as expansive as possible. You can also hang additional decorative mirrors.
