Bathroom Renovations

Bathroom renovations are often part of larger projects, such as a whole home remodel, main floor renovation, or to create a luxurious master suite retreat. They’re typically done to create a larger bathroom and to update the look and feel of the space.

The process of renovating a bathroom or ensuite is the same as with any other renovation. First, you need to determine what your dream bathroom looks like, then decide which elements you can achieve within your budget.

Trends in Bathroom Designs

Getting rid of chunky corner built-in bathtubs in ensuites is a major trend right now. The tubs take up unnecessary space and contribute to a cramped, crowded feel. Opening up the room allows for a variety of layout reconfiguration options and an airy ‘spa like’ feeling.

Replacing the built-in tubs are elegant freestanding bathtubs and a custom-designed walk-in shower. In fact, many people are forgoing the bathtub altogether in the ensuite, replacing it with a large walk-in shower/steam room with beautiful tiled benches. If your preference leans toward an ensuite with a large luxurious shower but you feel the need to retain a bathtub, keeping one in the main bathroom still leaves the option for bathing available.

If you’ve got an empty nest, why not enlarge the ensuite or put one in if none exists? Part of this is creating the space for double vanities (no more waiting for the other person to finish!).

Another trend we’re seeing in bathroom designs is floating vanities. Again, it’s all about creating a more serene, spacious look and feel in your home. Built-in storage is also popular for a tidier, well-organized space.

Bathroom Makeovers and Aging in Place

Baby Boomers in Calgary, Okotoks, Chestermere, and countless other communities are undertaking bathroom renovations they can enjoy for decades to come. By including features that allow for aging in place, they can ensure that they can remain in their home even if their health declines in the future.

When thinking about aging in place and bathroom renovations, consider installing items such as grab bars and other supports. A wider doorway that can accommodate wheelchairs is another idea. Many people put in barrier-free showers that you don’t have to step into for easier access should they one day require a walker or wheelchair.
