10 Bathroom Renovation Tips
Bathrooms are an important space in your home. A well-designed bathroom update can add a lot of value to your house, and provide you and your family with comfort and style. Here are 10 things to consider before having your bathroom renovated:

- Choose classic and elegant features.
Choose fixtures that have smooth and classic lines – like a pedestal sink or a curving tub. Classic fixtures will stand the test of time.
- Try out a tub before you buy it.
Sit in a tub before you purchase it to see how comfortable it feels. Bigger isn’t always better when it comes to tubs!
- Choose durable, warm flooring.
Ceramic or marble tile are booth good choices for a durable bathroom floor, but consider installing in-floor heating first so that these surfaces aren’t too cold.
- Install a statement mirror.
A large, stylish mirror can act as a beautiful focal point for a room for not much extra cost. Look for an interesting frame rather than a plain beveled mirror.
- Make hidden storage.
Consider having a recessed cabinet or shelf built between the studs when you have your renovation done for more storage options.
- Have a shower area built.
A large, open shower that’s fully tiled and water proof with a large glass door (or no door) is a luxury that is less confining than a shower stall.
- Find new space.
If your bathroom is an ensuite next to a closet, consider rearranging your floor plan a little to make your bathroom larger before you renovate.
- Don’t forget the power of good lighting.
A combination of overhead lighting and sconces work really well in a bathroom. Consider a full redesign of your light locations before you have new fixtures installed.
- Buy a good toilet.
A quality toilet is really important – don’t buy a really cheap one! Toilets with elongated seats are usually the most comfortable.
- Include a little luxury into your bathroom.
For not much extra time or cash, you can include indulgent little extras in your washroom like wiring for a TV or a space for a makeup vanity and stool.
