Who among us hasn’t dreamed of having their own fabulous ensuite master bathroom? If you’re one of the lucky homeowners who is undertaking a master bathroom renovation this year, read on for some real-life makeovers and info about upcoming trends in bathrooms as seen in our most recent homeowner reviews.
You Can’t Go Wrong With Maximum Marble
A significant trend for 2017 that we’re seeing is bathrooms fully clad in luxurious marble such as this stunning condominium bathroom reno by Toronto’s RV Renovation. Bianco di Carrara Marble was the material of choice for the walls, shower, floors and ceilings. For added daily pleasure, the owner had radiant floor heating and heated towel racks installed. This addition required an upgrade to the electrical to accommodate city certification. Read the full review here.
Gold and Brass No Longer Equal Disco
Harkening back to the glory days of the 1970’s we’re seeing an increase in the use of metal fixtures and accessories in hues of brass and gold. We featured this bathroom recently in our Photo of the Day series because it seamlessly blends a number of important design trends we’re seeing for 2017, and is proof that it’s not hard to create a lovely space on a modest budget. 6K was spent on this lovely downtown bathroom renovated by Ben Adams Tiling. The mixture of moroccan-style, patterned concrete tile, brass and gold fixtures, and timeless subway tile is a perfect statement for a small urban bathroom. Read the full review here.
Blend Subtlety with Sensuality
The trend toward matte, nude and neutral colors are on the rise, with on-trend textured or fully tiled walls providing sensuality and visual interest. This clean, modern yet luxurious 16K bathroom by Easy Bathroom Renovations is a great example of how this balance can be achieved. The stunning sit-in shower, wide wood-style ceramic floor tiles, simple finishings, and earth-toned colours create a flow to the room that is relaxing to the eye, and pleasing to the senses.

A great example is this lovely bathroom found in a one-bath, urban bungalow. The owner spent 17K renovating the space with Chermark Renovations. Read the full review here.

This $30K bathroom renovation by planet home improvement of Richmond Hill is a study in modern, clean organic design. Read the full review here.
Restoration vs. Renovation Is Good For The Soul

Take this bathroom that was suffering from some very serious green and pink colour fatigue as well as outdated plumbing. The homeowner hired Rizzi Renovates and spent 3.5K making this bathroom beautiful again. Read the full review here.
