5 Tips for Updating the Outdated Bathroom

Many home owners tend to overlook the bathroom, and end up leaving this renovation until the end. However, having an updated bathroom can add a lot of style and class to your home. A luxurious bathroom can offer a welcome oasis at the end of the day and make mornings more pleasurable when you have all the luxuries of a fine hotel. The bathroom renovations Ottawa home owners require should include these five high design details:

1. Eco-Friendly Choices

When designing your bathroom, you want to ensure you are using eco-friendly fixture which can include low flow toilets and shower heads. There are many options that allow you to choose the flush required for “liquid” or “solids” and luxurious shower heads that not only look gorgeous but will provide a very satisfying shower experience. You will not only be helping the environment, but will be saving money by cutting down on your water usage which can lead to big savings annually.

2. Stylish Fixtures

Avoid going for the standards and seek out fixtures with distinct style. Bathtubs are being designed for comfort as well as focal points for the bathroom. From reconstructed claw foot tubs to stunning waterfall designs, your tub should set the tone for your bathroom. Even toilets offer less utilitarian designs that are built not only for style but also for comfort. Sit in the display tub and on the display toilet to make sure they are comfortable.

3. Deep Sinks

Deep sinks are the must-have for bathroom renovations in Ottawa. They have taken over from the vessel sink craze as they offer a luxurious detail as well as space to take care of your needs. Vessel sinks are still available, but they tend to date themselves quite quickly.

4. Artistic Mirror

Mirrors are another design detail that can add sparkle and glamour to the bathroom. Beveled details, beautifully carved frames and additional features such as lighting for applying makeup and shaving make getting ready in the morning less of a chore. You can also consider magnified pull mirrors for more “intimate” beauty tasks such as plucking your eye brows.

5. Shower

Showers are also becoming focal points for bathroom renovations. Open showers that do not require doors, tubs or curtains allow more space and are often designed to accommodate two. Double shower heads, steam features, lighting and even music are all part of the modern luxury shower experience.

These five tips will ensure the success of your dream bathroom renovations.
