Bathroom
Designs

Overview

The kitchen is often called the heart of the home, the bathroom should be considered the engine room!

When renovating a bathroom you’re likely to have more constraints than with new builds because of existing plumbing locations. A good layout is essential to a functional bathroom that makes the most of its space. Research bathroom layout ideas to plan your space and create a comfortable bathroom that meets your needs.

Function & Privacy

Get specific on function – how will your bathroom function? While this includes practical questions such as bath or no bath, it’s also wise to consider the different functions your bathroom might perform during a normal day!

A separate toilet compartment in your bathroom is the ultimate in privacy, but solid walls make the overall room feel smaller, and many people find a toilet closet claustrophobic. These are just a few of the considerations we are happy to work out with you when designing your perfect bathroom.

Bathroom style
& feel

Although your bathroom may be the smallest room in the house, it can also be the most complicated to create or remodel. How do you want your finished bathroom to feel? Relaxing? Fresh? Welcoming? Modern, or with some rustic charm? And how will this fit in with the rest of your home?

A bump-out tub bay is a popular bathroom layout idea, but you can also bump in, creating a central tub niche flanked by built-in storage or by compartments for a shower and toilet. Not everyone prefers a tub, however. Most real estate experts agree, as long as you have at least one tub in the house, it’s OK for resale purposes to eliminate a second tub.

Bathroom Fixtures
& Fittings

Every bath needs a sink but choosing between one sink or two for your bathroom arrangement deserves some pondering. If two people are getting ready at the same time, and both need the sink, then two sinks make sense. Otherwise just one sink to share for tooth brushing and hand washing might be a better use of space. Before you shop for vanities and choose the material for your countertops, make sure you have a well-thought-out plan for your bathroom renovation. You can tailor the storage to each person’s needs and maximize the space if you don’t need a second sink. Don’t forget good vanity lighting!

Managing Cost

Ultimately, your bathroom layout will depend on the constraints of your space—and your budget. It’s best to choose all of the fixtures, materials and finishes down to the hardware before the project begins.

Remodelling costs tend to soar when you start moving plumbing lines. Consider keeping new bathroom renovations close to existing plumbing, either directly adjacent when on the same level of the house or stacked in a multilevel plan. Try and keep waterproofing to a set area, go with a single “wet wall” or an L-shape “wet zone” made up of two adjacent walls.
