Today, I am excited to share an update on some of my most recent projects - two bathroom renovations for happy clients here in Fort Saskatchewan. Both bathrooms were completely top-to-bottom renovation projects and I am so pleased with how they turned out! Check out some photos below!
As with all of the Terra Currie Designs projects, we began both of these bathroom renovations with an initial consult where we discuss my client’s vision, budget, needs for the space and overall goals for the project. We discuss the colours and textures we love and even more importantly, the ones we hate. Once we have thoroughly discussed my client’s vision, I take this information and create a design mood board.
There are two primary ways that I work with clients: design consultation (where I provide sourced products and the design but the clients do the work themselves) or as a general contractor (where I complete the entire project with my team). This particular bathroom renovation was one of my favourites as the clients were happy with the mood board and did not want to preview any finishes before they were in the space. It made the final reveal all the more exciting!
For this particular project I chose tiles from Tile and Stone Source in Edmonton. This is one of my favourite places to source products from because their showroom is amazing and they provide quality materials at a reasonable price. I also grabbed some beautiful pieces from Bed, Bath and Beyond - the teak stool, towel rack and shelf - to help liven up the space and create a more lived-in feel. This project was a pretty standard sized bathroom so I wanted to ensure everything we chose for this space was intentional and purposeful!
It’s no secret that bathrooms can be some of the more tricky renovation projects for any homeowner. After all, you have to fit some pretty important things into a very small space! Some of my favourite tips and tricks for creating your perfect bathroom include:
Know your measurements! I can’t even begin to explain to you how important this one is. There are difference clearance measurements for toilets depending on if it is against a vanity, water closet or wall. This is an easy (and costly!) mistake to make.
Invest in your features! Everybody loves a DIY project on a budget, but without investing in the proper hardware and infrastructure for your bathroom, you could be paying a hefty price to repair leaks or faulty hardware down the line.
You can create design impact in a small bathroom space by using non traditional tile arrangements. I love using traditional subway tiles in a herringbone pattern or opening up the room with tiles designed to look like cement. Both pack a heavy design punch and really open up your bathroom.
A touch of brushed brass is the design trend I am LOVING right now. Even a little touch on a mirror or vanity handles can add warmth and depth to your space.
What do you think of this space? Any bathroom design trends you would just love to incorporate into your home? I’d love to chat!
