5 Ways to Maximize Your Shower

#1 – Waterproofing

The most important thing to do in a shower, hands down, is waterproof it. A lot of people mistakenly think that tiles and grout are waterproof, and that kind of thinking can lead to big problems. So before you install your tiles make sure you have a solid, waterproof foundation. Be sure to check with your contractor that he or she is using a complete waterproofing system.

#2 – Shower Bench

If you’ve got the space, installing a bench is a great way to provide extra safety and comfort, as well as add a spa-like element – particularly in a steam shower where you want to sit back and relax. It’s important to use something that is both strong enough to sit on and totally waterproof. That way you can tile it and be confident it will not deteriorate due to the amount of water it’s exposed to.

BOLD BATHROOM LIGHTING IDEAS

Lighting can make a really big difference in the comfort, style and look of your bathroom. Here are some bold lighting ideas that you can try in your own bathroom:

VANITY LIGHTING

Lighting above your vanity mirror is what you’ll use mostly for things like brushing your teeth, styling your hair, and applying make-up.

This lighting type should be bright, and directed down to avoid side shadows. You want your face to be fully illuminated, as if the sun was shining down on it.

Something as simple as a desk lamp-style retro fixture, or a little more modern, like a textured bronze 3-bulb vanity light. For the more glamorous bathroom, try crystal LED vanity lights.

When it comes to vanity lights, fixtures that stick out from the wall and hang above the mirror will attract more attention than track lights that are flush against the wall.

Your Half-bathroom is Asking for some Design Love

Here are 8 Ways to Make It Shine:

1. Position your half-bathroom on perimeter

One solid bit of feng shui advice: position the half bath so that it includes one of the exterior walls of the house. This makes it possible to include a window for the bath and keeps it away from high traffic areas of the house.

2. Favour larger tiles over smaller ones

Large tiles in small bathrooms actually make them seem larger.

3. Position toilet so that it is not facing the door

If it isn’t obvious why, think comfort and privacy.

7 Essential Improvements for your Next Bathroom Remodel

1. A Low-flow, Hidden-tank Toilet

Hidden-tank toilets save you precious space, and low-flow models help save water every time you flush. It's a smart choice that increases the value of your home after the remodel.

They are appropriate for all bathrooms styles, but they fit especially well in modern and contemporary decors.

2. Two-inch Plumbing

This is a small, invisible improvement that will make a BIG difference in the functionality of your bathroom.

Typical bathroom plumbing is 1.5 inches. This plumbing type clogs easily, especially with several family members using the shower and/or bath. Installing 2-inch drains instead of 1.5 costs the same, and will dramatically improve the quality of drainage in your bathroom.

Three Tips on Hiring a Bathroom Remodeler

So, you’ve decided to hire a professional bathroom remodeling contractor—smart move. While a bathroom remodel is conceivably a do it yourself job, the complexity of this job means that hiring a pro isn’t such a bad idea. Because difficult operations (electrical, tiling, plumbing, etc.) are involved, you save yourself a load of misery and time by hiring a contractor.

Here are a few tips and what you can expect during the renovation:

Get the most out of a bathroom renovation

Everyone has their preferences when it comes to design, but when it comes to return on investment there are a few things that can help put your bathroom ahead of the rest:

Heated Floors

Electric systems for warming tiled floors were considered a luxury not long ago, but over the last couple of years they’ve almost become standard. And for good reason. Heated floors provide some ambient heat, which is particularly helpful in bathrooms located in cold parts of the house, but they also add tremendous comfort and a sense of luxury for anyone using the room. So if you’re embarking on a bathroom renovation it’s highly advisable to consider an electric floor warming system. And keep in mind that the best kind is one that also uses uncoupling technology, which ensures the floor tiles won’t be susceptible to cracks.
