Spring is home renovation time, and a popular project that’s trending with homeowners is a bathroom transformation. This key space was the most renovated room last year, and for good reason — with a few strategic upgrades you can create a relaxing oasis and boost a property’s resale value. Whether you’re looking to refresh an ensuite or powder room, use these tricks to make the most of every square foot.
Savvy storage solutions.
Maximize space by incorporating streamlined and efficient organizing and storage options. Think floating glass shelves to hold toiletries, built-in shelves and shower niches to house mood-setting décor and towels, and pullout drawers and desk trays to keep jewelry and makeup tidy.
Mix DIY with smart shopping.
Stretch dollars and keep the budget under control by combining do-it-yourself projects with new quality pieces that are worth investing in. For example, update an existing builder-basic vanity with a fresh coat of paint and new hardware, and splurge on a claw foot tub or heated floors. You can also go with more expensive tile and flooring in a small bathroom because you’ll need less material than you would in a larger space.
Opt for stylish, resourceful fixtures.
When upgrading plumbing fixtures, choose energy-efficient models that can help reduce energy and hydro bills while simplifying everyday life. You can make cleaning easier with the VorMax Plus self-cleaning toilet from American Standard, which cleans and freshens the toilet bowl with Lysol cleaner during every flush — no extra steps needed.
The toilet comes with smart design features that reduce the elbow grease needed for one of the least favorite household chores. Its CleanCurve Rim design eliminates hidden, hard-to-reach surfaces where dirt and buildup hide, and the innovative, brand-exclusive EverClean permanent finish helps the surface stay cleaner longer. The high-efficiency toilet delivers powerful cleaning performance while using 20% less water than traditional models and a water-saving 1.28 gallons per flush.
Bring on the bold.
Don’t be afraid to add fashion and flair — even small bathrooms can benefit from character and charm that create visual interest and please the eye. Pick one or two favourite features to play up. For a contemporary cottage look, try an oversized mirror framed in distressed wood. For a luxurious spa vibe, choose a deluxe showerhead, large tiles and plush accessories.
