What is usually included in a bathroom renovation?

Bathroom renovations typically include replacement of sinks and vanities, toilets, tubs and showers. Many homeowners also choose to update their faucets, fixtures and floors while they are at it. In smaller bathrooms such as washrooms, the toilet and sink are prime targets for refurbishment.

In a luxury bathroom, walk-in showers are often replaced with a separate tiled shower and deep soaking tub. You can add a half wall to separate the toilet from the shower, or choose new fixtures. Expand your vanity area with stone countertops and a padded bench to enhance your morning routine.

If you’re looking to upgrade to a more modern bathroom, a remodel might involve replacing your existing toilet with an eco-friendly model. Switching an acrylic bathtub/shower combination for a tiled shower with a sliding glass door is also a popular choice for contemporary bathroom projects.

After all, renovating your bathroom includes your ideas and vision for bathroom design.
