Arne Vos knows that when the tiles start to fall off the wall, it's time to change the bathroom.
The room was small but ugly.
When Voss and his wife bought the house at Toronto Beach three years ago, it was in urgent need of a renovation.
But everything else in the House needs to be updated, so 32-square-
The space of the foot was left until it began to crash.
"The bathroom is always a big thorn around me," said Voss . ".
"I hate it from the first day.
"It's not good except the light and the shell --
The molded base sink, walls and insulation broke up behind the outdated tiles, so Vos took a sledgehammer and removed everything including the windows.
The next step is more complicated.
Dutch native Vos has a contemporary design store before moving to Toronto, representing some high
European terminal product line.
Even with such a background, he finds it challenging to write his vision on paper.
He also had to choose each material, furniture and accessories.
"The smaller the space, the more you need to find a balance between vision and functionality," he said . ".
The result is amazing, natural and timeless.
This is also an inspiring example of how much is possible in very little space.
Privies of old rooms and new apartments usually share the problem of small apartments.
It's hard to make these rooms comfortable, especially if you want to fit into the spa today --like options.
Anita Griffin, brand manager at Delta Faucet, said for a small bathroom, "the first thing you really need to consider is functionality, so style and form should follow.
"Experts say this is particularly important for anyone who designs a room from scratch, but even a room with a fixed function needs to be handled from a functional point of view: what do people do in the bathroom?
Ji Kim, an industrial designer at Moen, said think of the bathroom as a factory.
"You have to think about the workflow and you can treat the sinks and showers as workstations where they are all connected activities.
She pointed out: "A towel rod in a bad position may mean that water drops are everywhere on the floor.
"What you need has to be stored in a place that makes sense or is natural, so you end up putting (things)back.
All these are the most important factors to consider in advance.
"Features, style and form solidify the look.
Experts suggest that the bathroom space is usually high-end, stylish and small --
Zoom the lines with some eye sugar.
Chrome is a great start.
"The best thing about chrome is that it's crisp and clean," Griffin said . ".
"The flat shiny surface on Chrome adds extra sparks and reflections to the room.
If you pair chrome with the classic series, you really make a choice that will stand the test of time. "Single-Treatment or wall-
The installed faucet does not have too much power and the guide is followed throughout the room.
"A lot of our products are going up --protein, low-
"The carbs diet and their size really fell," Griffin said . ".
Worth chose a wall.
In order to make the room as spacious as possible, the toilet and vanity were installed.
He believes that floating toilets need to move garbage lines and even dig the ground floor, but this is a big difference for the eyes.
Few apartments can adapt to this change, Vos says, but this effort is worth it if possible.
Kim noted that the appearance of the ventilation does not steal the volume from the space.
If it is not possible to have a floating dresser, use the legs instead of having a flat seat on the floor.
It is as helpful to keep the color light and half-color light
Clear or light curtains for shower and windows.
Three bright walls lead to a dark wall and work well in a small room. "(Some)
People are walking away from the shower curtain or along with the damp room, so. . .
"There is no shower wall at all, or they are heading towards the glass case," Griffin said . ".
Therefore, the appearance and style of the shower system become more and more important.
"All of this can be done with the environment in mind. Stylish low-
Including the luxurious rainfall shower head, there are flow fixing devices.
As for the cost, Vos said it could be a $15,000 makeover, but he chose to spend $5,000 more, considering the almost guaranteed hot real estate market on the beach.
Vos uses washed, quarter-sawn white oak as a dresser and skirt
In the Jacuzzi, white glass mosaic tiles on the walls and handmade
Bathtub walls, borders and vanity countertops are stacked with slabs of varying thickness and size.
Basic and natural materials will never go wrong, he said.
There is no big budget for decorating a small bathroom. Says Masco. "If you. . .
Replace the faucet, place fresh, modern, stylish accessories inside, match the surface of the faucet, add a new manual shower feature and you can really refresh the room.
Then you apply another coat of paint. "It's amazing. . .
How much it will change.
