Bathroom Renovation Tips

  • Design lighting that will make you look your best self. Quality lighting is essential. Create a shadow free lighting design with halogen pot lights enclosed in wall scones around your mirror. Installing a dimmer is great for modifying your lighting to fit your mood!
  • Create extra space. A tall, in-wall cabinet in between wall studs can maximize storage without minimizing floor space. The cabinet should be at least 3 inches in depth.
  • Create your own showering area. An open concept shower area, that has no need for curtains or doors, will provide a less confining space than a regular shower stall. Combine that with a ceiling mounted rain shower head and you will keep a drier outside area and create a more unique showering experience.
  • Take advantage of space - break some walls. If in your home you have back-to-back bathrooms, consider opening up space by having a shared shower with doors to access it from both rooms. You can also turn a closet into a small en-suite bathroom with a door to access shower
