It’s no secret that the modern-day bathroom needs to be a practical space. In addition to ensuring we have enough legroom to move from, say, shower to sink, a bathroom must also provide adequate storage facilities. After all, walking into a cramped and cluttered space first thing in the morning may very well spell the start of a bad mood for the rest of that day.

And let’s not forget that, like all spaces in a home, the bathroom must also be visually appealing.

That is why we’ve gathered these top 5 bathroom renovation ideas from Pretoria-based bathroom designers, as these tips perfectly combine functionality with visual beauty.

Let’s get started!

1. Floating vanities

Need to make your tiny bathroom seem bigger? A floating vanity is one of the most creative ideas, as it frees up floor space! 

And it’s also one of the easiest, as a floating vanity can be as simple as a solid piece of wood with a vessel sink. Of course it can also be much more visually pleasing, as this double design in our example below.

2. Pretty tile pieces

People in Pretoria seem to grasp the practicality of beautiful tile accents, which can add a bit of glamour and sparkle to just about any space – from backplashes and showers to the wall areas above vanities.

3. Heated flooring

Say “no” to chilly feet by installing a radiant-heat system underneath your bathroom floors. This is especially welcome beneath typically cold materials such as ceramic tile and stone. 

Complete the look (and warm underfoot sensation) with a rug or bath mat that complements the rest of the room.

4. Frameless glass showers

Vintage showers might sport ledges and lips to step over, yet modern-day designs opt for a sleeker and cleaner look. And these seem to be getting more and more popular!

5. Storage solutions

It’s quite easy for any bathroom to be overloaded with accessories, yet smart storage solutions ensure everything is located neatly in its place. This wall niche, complete with wooden surfaces, adds a practical storage spot for soaps and shampoos, plus adds a bit of detail to an ordinary shower wall.
