(Originally aired February 20th, 2014)

 

Tips to Planning a Bathroom Renovation:

– A bathroom may be a small space, but it doesn’t mean it’s easy to do.

– If you’re buying a bathtub, make sure you sit in the one you are going to purchase beforehand to see if it is comfortable.

– Collect images from Pinterest and Houzz and then determine a realistic budget.

– Determine which trades you will need and when (plumber, tiler, electrician to put in the electricity switchboard, vanity maker, etc.)

– Remember to keep a  10-20% contingency fee for unforeseen problems.

The Perfect Bathroom

blogimg001

Everyone has a preferred method of recovering after a long day of work. For many, a steamy shower or decadent soak in the tub clears the mind and recharges the body. Since we use this vital space to prepare for a good night’s rest and to reinvigorate the senses each morning, we asked influential bloggers about their own secrets to a perfect bathroom. Here’s what some of them had to say:

Sarah Swanson from Flourish Design and Style says: ‘White, white and white! Clean, crisp and fresh marble tiles, crisp towels and creamy walls.’ 

Vanessa Francis from Decor Happy says: ‘If you share the bathroom with your spouse/partner, two sinks are mandatory!’

Sarah Hepburn-Smith from Redesigning Sarah says: ‘A good showerhead with adjustable settings means luxury. I can spend hours in the shower and I love the feeling of a consistent, hard spray of water.’

The Luxurious Ensuite

Extraordinary design features were once reserved for living and dining rooms, presumably because this is where they could be admired. In contrast, today’s homeowner is committed to creating private rooms that pamper, with the bathroom being of prime importance. If you’re designing or redecorating a master ensuite, treat yourself to this well-deserved upgrade.

Richness of Water A revitalizing shower experience is the perfect start to the day. Look for a showerhead with invigorating jets for a rich and satisfying shower. Combined with a handshower, your bathroom will become the most luxurious room in the house.
