Using Quality Materials

In our opinion, the use of quality materials for any renovation project will never go out of style for several reasons.
Firstly, high-quality materials are more durable and longer-lasting than cheaper, lower-quality products. This means that making the initial investment in quality materials will pay off over time, as they require less maintenance and replacement, ultimately saving homeowners money in the long run.
Secondly, renovating a bathroom with high-quality materials and fixtures will have a better chance of adding to the overall value of the property. This is particularly beneficial for homeowners who may want to sell their home in the future, because a well-designed and well-executed bathroom renovation can be a major selling feature for potential buyers.
Lastly, quality materials are often more aesthetically pleasing and can create a more luxurious and upscale feel in a bathroom.
Elevating Your Bathroom Aesthetics with Tiles

With the right selection, tiles can help set the mood and create a particular ambiance in your bathroom that enhances the overall aesthetic.
For example, if you want to create a calming and relaxing space, choosing cooling or earthy tones can help you achieve a spa-like atmosphere. The use of subtle patterns or textures can further enhance the soothing effect.
Alternatively, if you want to create a vibrant and energizing space, bold and colorful tiles can be the perfect choice. Tiles in bright shades of blue, green, or red can create an energizing atmosphere, while geometric patterns or mosaic tiles can add a spark of visual interest to the space.
Freestanding Tubs Are All The Rage

Freestanding soaker tubs continue to be a popular trend in bathroom renovations, and it’s easy to see why. Not only do they provide a luxurious and spa-like feel to a bathroom, but they can also serve as a statement piece and can become the focal point of your space.
There are a variety of tub styles and materials available to choose from. From modern and sleek designs to more traditional styles, there is a freestanding tub to fit any aesthetic and design goal.
Making a Statement with Lighting

Unique lighting fixtures, such as chandeliers, pendants and sconces, are becoming increasingly popular in today’s Calgary bathroom designs.
When selecting statement lighting for your bathroom renovation, it’s important to consider the overall aesthetic and design of the space. Lighting should complement and enhance the other elements in the room, such as tile and fixtures, and create a cohesive and visually appealing look.
In addition, the use of LED lighting is becoming more widespread, allowing homeowners to set the mood and customize the ambiance in their bathroom.
Getting Creative with Wallpaper

Recently, wallpaper has been making a comeback in bathroom renovations because it has the ability to add texture and depth to the room that paint alone simply cannot match.
A major advantage of using wallpaper in a bathroom is the variety of options available. From bold, graphic prints to subtle and delicate patterns, there is a wallpaper design to fit whatever look you’re going for. Additionally, wallpaper can also be used to create a cohesive and coordinated look in a bathroom, by complimenting the other design elements such as tiles, paint colours and personal décor choices.
Planning for the Future

For homeowners who plan to remain in their homes for many years to come, it’s important to consider how a bathroom can be designed for aging in place, to help ensure a safe and comfortable space as you grow older.
For example, one element that is becoming increasingly popular in bathroom renovations for homeowners of all ages is a curbless shower entry. By eliminating the traditional raised edge of a shower, a curbless entry allows for a seamless transition into the shower which can reduce the risk of tripping and falling now, while also helping with any future needs for a more accessible space.
When planning a bathroom renovation with aging in place in mind, it’s important to work with a team of professionals, like Pinnacle Group Renovations, who has experience in this area. Our MyLifetimeHome™ division is aimed at guiding homeowners through the process of selecting and incorporating the right design elements to ensure safety and accessibility, while still creating a visually appealing and functional space.
