Removable showerheads are one of the more thoughtful bathroom renovations that homeowners are opting for these days.

Have you ever been in someone else’s bathroom and come across certain design features that make you say: why didn’t I think of that? And why is it some of those seemingly simple innovations often to get overlooked when it comes time to carry out your own bathroom renovations?

Well, we’re here to help. As Kelowna contractors, we understand that it’s easy for homeowners to get bogged down during a bathroom remodeling project. To make sure you end up with a bathroom that meets your expectations, we’ve come up with a list of must-have renovation ideas that can have a significant impact on the way this room looks, feels and functions.

After all, the bathroom is one of the most frequently used rooms in the house. Plus, a well-designed bathroom will increase the overall value of your house.


1. The Shower Nook

If there’s one thing that frustrates people when they’re showering, it’s not having a place to put their bathing products, such as:

  • Soap
  • Shampoo bottles
  • Razors
  • Loofa

Sure, you can hang one of those wire shower caddies from your show head, but they’re a bit of an eyesore. Furthermore, the moment you inadvertently bump it with your elbow, things are going for a ride.

This is why shower nooks have become indispensible home renovations Kelowna residents can’t live without. With a little preplanning, you can build a tiled cubby in the shower wall big enough to store all of your basic bath products.


2. Accent Tiles

Rather than opt for a single tile pattern, why not mix things up a bit? It won’t break the bank to choose a few accent tiles and it can really help add some flare to your bathroom renovations.


3. Removable Shower Head

Many people will look at a removable showerhead and instantly think they’re superfluous. In fact, they are surprisingly useful. They make life better in so many ways:

  • Washing away soap scum and mildew from shower walls
  • Washing your dog
  • Direct showerhead directly at sore muscles for a minor massage
  • Really effective at rinsing out shampoo


4. Curved Shower Rods

Until you’ve stood in a shower that has a curved shower rod, you might not get what all the fuss is about. Rather than the traditional straight rod, the newer contoured rods bow out in the middle, thus allowing the bather more real estate in the shower. Plus, they tend to look more sophisticated.


5. In-floor Heating

If you’ve ever had to tiptoe on cold bathroom tiles in the morning, you’re in for a treat with in-floor heating. Similar to the warm embrace of a heated car seat in the middle of winter, stepping on warm tiles is sheer luxury for your feet.
