Are you thinking about bathroom renovations? Use these resources to help stage your bathroom after the work is done.

After the kitchen, the bathroom is one of the most used spaces in your home. It can also be one of the most neglected. However, bathroom renovations can actually give you a return on investment in your home. They are one of the main rooms that Kelowna homebuyers take into consideration when looking to purchase.

After you decide to make the investment and undergo a bathroom remodel project, it’s just as important to make sure your space looks great. Think of the warm and inviting feel of a luxury hotel bathroom or spa.

Here are some ideas on staging your bathroom after a renovation:


1. Increase your storage

Let’s face it. It’s easy for a bathroom to become cluttered with all the lotions and potions we use to not only clean ourselves, but the bathroom itself.

Getting Kelowna contractors to increase your storage space with extra cabinets and shelving while renovating will give you a place to not only stack your folded towels, but to store away items such as:

  • Toiletries
  • Medications-first aid supplies
  • Hairdryer/curler
  • Toilet paper
  • Cleaning products


Extra tip: For shower products, why not install an adjustable shower caddy that you can place in the corner of your bath and/or shower. That way it’s only a hand’s reach to your shampoo, body wash, razors, etc.


2. Use neutral colours/muted lighting

Again this can start during the renovation process, with the colours you choose for your cabinets, sinks, tiles and paint. Using a neutral colour palette will keep your bathroom looking bright and clean as well as soothing. You can also subdue the lighting in your bathroom, especially relaxing when having a bath, with accent lights and muted ceiling lights.


Extra tip: To add a layer of warmth and create a spa-like experience, use bright coloured towels on racks or stacked in a wicker basket and add accessories such as natural soaps, bath oils, and candles in soft colours on a tray on your sink counter or shelf.


3. Add form and function with furnishings

Besides cabinets, a decorating trick being used by many hotels and spas is to add some kind of small furnishing in the bathroom. This is done not only for décor purposes, but also for functional uses. It could be a small wooden stool by a bathtub as a place to stack hand towels and washcloths, or even just a simple plant stand.

Other ideas include:

  • Side table
  • Ottoman
  • Small bamboo or wooden ladder used as a rack
  • Standing floor mirror
  • Dressing table


4. Make an impact with plants

Not only do plants add colour and a dramatic vibe, they can add a fresh scent and in some cases absorb moisture and humidity from the air, which will help in eliminating mold and bacteria from your bathroom. Some of the best varieties that can survive in low light and high humidity-heat conditions include:

  • Boston ferns
  • Bamboo
  • Aloe Vera
  • Cast Iron plants
  • Dracaena (dragon plants)
  • English Ivy
  • Orchids
  • Peace lily
