Bathroom Upgrade Ideas

Are you thinking about upgrading the bathroom in your home? Below are some ideas to help you turn your bathroom into a beautiful spa-like oasis. And the best part – all of these projects can be completed by your Vancouver Handyman!

Go for the Glass

A glass shower door can add instant beauty to your bathroom. There are many types of glass that you can use – from crystal clear, to tinted, to pieces etched with special designs or patterns.

A glass shower isn’t just for looks – it’s also much more sanitary than a shower curtain. Glass can easily be cleaned inside and out for a fresh shower every time!

Add a Bench

A bench can be a useful addition to any bathroom provided you have the space for it. Inside the shower, it can add a lavish touch, and also an element of safety. Outside of the shower, it can add seating space for when you are getting ready for a big night out, or you can stack pretty towels and other items on it. If you choose a bench with a storage space underneath, you also add free up space elsewhere in the room to add additional touches of décor.

Tile Accents

Whether you choose to simply upgrade the tile flooring, or add in tile accents in contrasting colors, tile is a simple, affordable and attractive way to modernize any bathroom. Try using just a few tiles in a particular area, or add in a full backsplash – the tiles the limit!

Floating Vanity

A floating vanity is all the rage these days. It can be constructed out of any material of your choosing – wood, glass, you decide! The beauty of a floating vanity is it opens up the space nicely, and also provides lots of extra space below for storage. As well, you can add in double sinks and mirrors, or one large mirror that covers the entire expanse of the vanity, which will also greatly open up the space.

Decorative Shelving

Adding shelving not only provides extra space to store towels and toiletries, but it can also add beauty to your bathroom. A single shelf can be installed that you can put a plant or a vase of flowers on, or a pretty arrangement of perfume bottles. I’ve installed these types of shelves in many Vancouver homes.

Towel Warmer

If you have lots of space and you really want to feel pampered, a towel warmer if the way to do it! Towel warms come in a variety of sizes, so depending on the size of your family, you should be able to find just the right one.

Add Modern Faucets

You can change the look of your bathroom entirely simply by upgrading the faucets. There are so many varieties available, including those that operate hands free! Add a modern touch by choosing sleek chrome, or go vintage with old fashioned porcelain – it’s up to you!
