Condo Bathroom Renovation Tips


One of the most difficult aspects of living in a condo is finding creative, meaningful ways to showcase personality and style throughout a relatively small space. Even more challenging is finding ways to do it in small rooms in which fixtures aren’t easily moveable. Enter: the condo bathroom renovation.

As a renovation project, your condo bathroom can be an incredibly exciting way to breathe new life into your living space. That said, there are a series of considerations and tips you’ll want to keep in mind throughout the process. We’re going to explore all of those, and more, throughout the remainder of this article.


Check Condo Rules

Prior to beginning any condo renovations – regardless of the room you’re tackling – it’s important to assess the condo renovation rules and ensure that you’re operating within the scope of what’s allowed. For most condos, the rules outlined will include:

  • Allotted days and times during which renovations can take place
  • Select materials that are allowed for construction use in the building
  • Rules surrounding contractors and subcontractors

It’s important to note that there may be rules beyond this set depending on your condo building. You’ll want to assess the restrictions in place and ensure you have proper approval prior to getting started, as there are few things worse than having to pause a project midway due to legal or operational restrictions.

With that taken care of, let’s now explore some renovation options to move forward with.


Replace Bathtub

If you find yourself complaining about a small, cramped bathroom space, it may be time to replace your bathtub with a shower instalment. Bathtubs often take up far more square footage than can be justified by their purpose, and showers – especially frameless or glass-encased – will make your bathroom look and feel much larger than it is. In addition to additional space, you can make use of patterned tiles or liners to create a beautiful, modern aesthetic.


Upgrade Vanity

Most condo bathroom vanities will be generic in nature – installed by the builder without much forethought. As such, replacing your vanity is one of the most impactful ways to breathe life into your bathroom space, and it can allow you to create an incredibly unique visual experience. You should consider the type of storage you’ll need, the colour and sizing needs for the space, and the types of materials – both for the base and the counter – that you’ll want installed. With these decided on, you’ll be able to completely overhaul the look and feel of your bathroom space.
