Classic Bathroom Design
Your bathroom is one of the most-used and most functional spaces in your home.
Out of all the rooms in your house you probably spend more time alone (and naked?) in your bathroom than anywhere else.
It is probably the first room you head for when you get out of bed in the morning and likewise the last room you visit before turning in at night.
It is also the wettest room in your home where both walls and floor are constantly getting coated with steam, splashes, sprays and damp – so you need to be sure that it is kept warm and can dry off quickly so that damp and mold don’t become problem issues.
For all these reasons it is essential that your bathroom is designed first and foremost for practicality – with comfort and aesthetics following closely in second place.
Talk to our experienced bathroom stylists at Winnipeg’s Creative Design Contractors Ltd so that you can get the new bathroom you seek at a price that is right for your budget.
And take a look at some of our most recent renovations in the photo gallery below to get some ideas of bathroom revamps that may also work for you.
What to consider when redesigning your bathroom
Above all, your bathroom floor needs to be non-slippery and 100% water resistant. There are many options available depending on your tastes and available budget.
The most luxurious and practical option is marble, ceramic, or stone tiles with underfloor heating so that you always have a warm surface to stand on when you get undressed or out of the tub. Underfloor heating in the bathroom is also excellent for making your bathroom feel permanently warm and dry with fewer cold air pockets as the warmth rises upwards so the coldest areas are closer to the ceiling.
Alternatively, you might consider installing a well-sealed, hard-wood floor if your bathroom is used mostly by adults or children who have learned not to splash too wildly and dry up when they are done.
Sealed cork, bamboo, rubber, and linoleum are other much-used options for a practical bathroom floor surface.
If you have the space you might also consider dividing your floor area into two – one part to be covered with a water resistant material for around the sink and where you step out of the tub or shower, and the other for the area where you dress, put on make-up, or exercise, etc, which could even be carpeted for a warmer feel underfoot.
Just like floor surfaces, bathroom countertops need to be 100% waterproof and easy to clean.
You can choose any of the materials that are suitable for use in the kitchen – probably marble, quartz, slate and granite are the most luxurious and aesthetically pleasing and they are very durable and never go out of style.
There are also hundreds of very attractive acrylic and polyester resin synthetic options that mimic all the style of natural stone at only half the cost and in many ways are easier to take care of – think LivingStone, Dupont Corian, Formica, LG Hi Macs, Wilsonart, or Staron.
The only way to achieve that sleek, clutter-less bathroom finish that you see in magazines is if you have plenty of storage space to keep your essential bathroom ‘stuff’ out of sight.
Open shelves are an attractive way to store elegantly rolled towels and dishes of guest soaps but all those extra toilet rolls, spare bottles of shampoo, toe nail clippers and other essential bathroom equipment are, for the main part, better hidden in drawers or behind closed cupboard doors.
There are many styles of bathroom cabinets available on the market – our renovation experts at Cabinet Design Contractors Ltd will be pleased to show you what is available in and around Winnipeg.
Fixtures and Fittings
- You need to buy the best faucets you can to avoid leaks, drips and plumbing problems later on.
- Installing a rain-head shower from the ceiling or high on the wall will help to keep the area outside your shower less prone to splashes and therefore faster to dry.
- Be sure to always buy a good quality WC to avoid problems with flushing or blockages – there is nothing worse than having to resolve these types of plumbing problems.
Probably the most important decorative feature in your bathroom is your mirror, not only so that you can shave, put on make-up, arrange your hair, etc, but also for making the room seem larger and reflecting the light to make for a brighter space.
You might choose to make the whole wall area behind the vanity unit into one giant mirror, or you may decide to install attractively framed mirrors instead to give the room a cozier, less clinical feel.
Think about where your electrical outlets should be placed so that they are easily accessible for shaving, drying your hair, etc, within easy view of your mirrors.
As you can see, your bathroom may be one of the smallest rooms in your house but in many ways it requires the most thought in terms of making it practical, functional, water resistant, stylish, warm and comfortable all at the same time.
