If you’re thinking about remodelling your bathroom and have no idea where to start, this guide will put you on the right track! This blog covers things you must consider before remodelling or renovating your bathroom, including lighting, remodelling trends, and subfloor heating!
Bathroom Remodelling Trends
Here are three bathroom remodelling trends to consider for some inspiration.
1. Natural Beauty Inspired Bathroom
Want a bathing area that’s welcoming and serene? Then drawing design inspiration from nature is a great way to warm a typically very hard house room. Doing this will infuse the space with a calming vibe. It’s one of the key bathroom remodelling reno trends, according to designers Simona Castagna and Darren Genner of Minosa. An easy way to incorporate this reno trend into a bathroom design is to introduce earthy materials like natural stone or wood-look tiles.
2. Jazzed Up Bathroom Lighting
Go ahead and amp up the ambience in your bathing area by installing backlighting around a mirror. Because it will provide soft, warm lighting. Toe-kick lighting underneath cabinets serves as a handy nightlight. Consider installing a dimmer on your central ambient light (the fixture that fills the room with light).
3. Heated Bathroom Floors
Heated floors are an added luxury and cheaper than you think. They are a life-changing upgrade in colder climates. Installing heated floors is a great selling point for those considering listing a home. Heated floors can also save homeowners money by allowing them to keep the temperature in their homes lower during the colder months without worrying about their floors being cold. As far as material goes, ceramic and porcelain tiles will be big sellers in the days ahead. If you want more information about heated floors, keep reading!
Subfloor Heating – Bathroom Remodelling
There’s nothing like setting foot in the bathroom on a cold winter morning to remind you that the seasons have changed and the temperature has dropped! Somehow, hopping onto cold tiles makes an early morning shower hugely unappealing, no matter how steaming hot. While heating options for ‘wet spaces’ have come a long way, there are still very few ‘instant fixes’ for turning your bathroom from frosty to cozy quickly and easily.
Enter Subfloor Heating
Subfloor heating is an option that used to be written off by homeowners and bathroom remodelers in Our AreaSurrey due to its high costs, which cancelled out the range of benefits. Fortunately, for those who enjoy keeping our toes toasty, subfloor heating is now an affordable possibility!
Very Clever Way of Heating a Bathroom
M.C. Painting & Renovation has witnessed the rise in popularity of subfloor heating with our clients over the last ten years. This heat is not just a solution for a warmer floor; it is a clever way to warm the entire bathroom. Unlike overhead heat and heat lamps that provide a blast of heat from the ceiling, subfloor heating is generated from the floor up. Because hot air rises, the warmth is distributed at a constant temperature more evenly and efficiently. This means that the bathroom warms up quickly and stays warm.
If you’re considering subfloor heating, speak with M.C. Renovation & Painting to see whether it might work for your project. We can always approximate what the costs will be. The prices for this heat source vary quite a bit. But our proven install and product section guarantees the best value for your bathroom remodelling project.
Making Windowless Bathrooms Brighter
Do you have a bathroom in a part of your house where it’s void of natural light?Brighten up your windowless bathroom with LED lighting. We have tips to help you replace the sun’s rays and make your bathroom a vibrant place.
1. Use Metallics
Shiny surfaces with metallics will help reflect light, brightening your bathroom’s inside. Silver, gold, or bronze hardware are good choices, as are pearlescent tiles.
2. Light Floor and Wall Colours
Choosing a lighter colour for your floors and walls will help provide a cleaner, more open look to your bathroom. Dark floors and walls in a tight space with no natural light will have a claustrophobic feel. A light hardwood floor or light-coloured tiles will help makeyour bathroom brighter.
3. Add Art
Filling up your bathroom with new pieces of art that are colourful and vibrant will give an excellent vibe to the interior of your bathroom. Be thoughtful about the artwork you put in your bathroom, and don’t just reserve the wall for the art that has outlived the other rooms of your home.
4. Use Soft Lighting
Avoid using harsh ceiling lights as they tend to dull the surroundings. Choose a chic lighting fixture with multiple light bulbs to spread light in different directions. Soft diffused light will also make anyone look better in the mirror!It can be as simple as adding a Dimmer switch!
5. Add More Mirrors
Speaking of looking good in mirrors, you can add additional mirrors to give off the feeling of having more light and more space. Even a small stylish mirror added to your standard medicine cabinet/sinkmirror will make you feel less closed in your bathroom.
