Plan the perfect bathroom renovation with some of these great tips. 

A properly planned bathroom renovation should last decades. While you can swap out the towel and paint colours for a quick refresher, you don't want to invest in another remodel that changes the floor plan again. That's why the layout for your bathroom remodel is so important to get right the first time.

When it comes to executing timeless renovations, especially in the bathroom, the layout should be well thought out. The space should be functional, safe, and comfortable.


1. The Powder Room

Renovating a powder room may seem like a small task, but it still takes a bit of planning. Since the space is limited, you want to make sure each decision is thought out carefully. And you'll need to include a sink, a toilet, and a mirror at a minimum. If you're struggling to make sure your tiny space is still functional, a home renovation contractor can help ensure your finished bathroom is even better than you imagined.

Things to consider include:

  • How much room the bathroom door takes up
  • Existing plumbing
  • Ventilation
  • Sound insulation

2. The Three-piece Bathroom

A three-piece bathroom consists of a toilet, a sink, and a shower. These bathrooms are typically built more for function and less for lounging. Ideally, a corner shower will help save space and allow more room for the toilet and vanity.

If multiple family members are sharing this space, you'll want to ensure the vanity is big enough to accommodate hair appliances and make-up and have ample storage.

3. The Full Bathroom

These bathrooms are great, especially for kids who still rely on taking baths. To save space, consider a tub/shower combo instead of installing them separately.

If you've got more than one family member or overnight guests accessing this bathroom regularly, twin sinks are a great option. You may also want to consider adding in open shelving for easy access to bath towels and toiletries.

4. The Master Bathroom 

The master bathroom is a full bathroom that adjoins the master bedroom. This space should be well designed for functionality but also incorporate spa-like elements. This is the perfect room to splurge on a rainfall showerhead, a steamer, or a bidet. Some other elements that work well in this space include:

  • Curbless shower design
  • Hand-held showerhead
  • Tall toilet
  • His and her sinks
  • Integrated LED vanity lighting
  • In-floor radiant heat
  • Built-in television
  • Separate water closet
