Updating your bathroom


An effective bathroom design should address all your needs, physical and spiritual. Here are the most important tips from our experts at Easylife Kitchens to consider when you are thinking about bathroom renovations or updates.

Choose elegant fixtures.

A pedestal sink with graceful lines is more attractive than a blocky cabinet vanity. A classic claw-foot tub is like bathroom sculpture. Even enclosed in a deck, the simple lines of the lip have an inherent beauty that surpasses most acrylic versions.

Sit in a bathtub before buying it.

Bigger isn’t always better. A normal sized tub is fine for most people. It offers enough room to stretch out and provides a secure foothold, so you don’t float into oblivion when the tub is full. Assess the angled back and lip for comfort and neck support –- a tub for two people slants at either end and has taps in the middle. If you only have enough space for a small tub, buy an extra-deep one.

Hang a stylish mirror.

One beautifully framed mirror over a sink is more attractive than many surfaces covered with mirror. Supplement it with a wall-mounted adjustable makeup mirror, and consider installing a lighted, mirrored shaving niche in your shower stall.




Use found space.

Take advantage of space between wall studs by recessing a tall storage cabinet into the wall to maximize vertical storage while saving floor space. The cabinet should have an interior depth of at least three inches and a door flush with the wall.



Build a shower area.

Consider building an open-concept shower area that doesn’t need a curtain or door and is less confining than a standard shower stall. In addition to well-designed drainage, a ceiling-mounted rain showerhead and/or a high wall-mounted showerhead that splashes less water will keep the area outside the shower drier.


 Share space for added function.

In homes with back-to-back bathrooms, a shared shower with access doors to each of the bathrooms maximizes limited space. Or turn a cupboard located next to a bathroom into a small ensuite with access to the neighbouring bath.



Design lighting that works.

Good lighting is imperative. Combine halogen pot lights with wall sconces beside or over the mirror for lighting with no shadows. Always install dimmers.



Buy a quality toilet.

When buying a toilet, it’s not necessary for you to spend big bucks, but you don’t want to scrimp too much, either. You can get a good-quality one-piece toilet for about $400. Models with elongated bowls and seats are usually most comfortable.


 Incorporate luxury into your room.

If you’re fortunate enough to have lots of space to work with, indulge yourself with an expanded spa-like bathroom that includes a dressing room –- a haven for privacy and relaxation. Outfit it with a television, fireplace, exercise equipment, makeup vanity and even a large comfortable occasional chair upholstered in thick white terry-cloth.

A bathroom must look stylish, modern and appealing. While designing your bathroom, placement of bathroom vanities plays a crucial role in carefully concealing plumbing, providing storage and making your bathroom look stylish and attractive.


A bathroom vanity is the basic fitting in a bathroom like the sink, bathtub, cupboards and other storage units for toiletries, and similar items. Today, bathroom vanities are available in a large variety of colours, models and styles along with modern fittings and state of the art add-ons designed to cater to each type of customer’s requirements.

Choosing your vanity would also depend on bathroom space available and the design of its interiors.

While selecting bathroom vanity, make sure it is easy to clean and maintain, provides adequate storage space and is resistant to water/moisture.

At Easylife Kitchens, a team of professionals will help you design your dream bathroom, and will help in the selection of appropriate bathroom vanity to ideally suit your bathroom requirements.
