3 Master Bathroom Features You’ll Love

When my husband and I were in the market for a new home about 10 years ago, we had certain requirements that house needed to fulfill — a spacious kitchen, an attached garage, and a comfortable master bathroom. The latter was important, because in our previous house, we’d found ourselves routinely battling it out for space in front of our small master bathroom sink, and actually stepping on each other’s toes as we moved between the vanity and shower.

In our new home, we insisted on a larger master bathroom — but that wasn’t all. We also wanted certain features that would make that space even more usable and shareable, and now, 10 years later, I can say that I’m particularly grateful for the following.

1. Double sinks

Many couples share a single bathroom sink and get by just fine. But I’m the type who needs room to spread out

Kitchen Cabinets | Kitchen Units

One of the essential parts to a design are kitchen cabinets, which provide a structure to create work areas, offer space to house useful devices, and can also provide a place to store everyday items like groceries, cookware, and crockery. There are two options to choose from – pre-assembled or flat pack. Pre-assembled are supplied complete and ready for fitting, saving valuable time completing a job and getting a home up and running faster. They also come with accessories pre-installed to reduce time taken on fiddly tasks, making them a great choice for homes who want little downtime. Flat pack designs are easier to transport thanks to the compact packaging and design – best suited to those with properties that are hard to manoeuvre in and out of, or where space is limited. Once professionally fitted, they provide a strong structure that forms the base for which other features can

15 Cheap Bathroom Remodel Ideas

It may not seem possible, but a cheap bathroom remodel is absolutely attainable. Popular home remodeling culture makes it appear seem like bathroom remodels must cost five figures and everything must be ripped away and replaced. But resisting that notion is the first step to deflating spiraling bathroom remodel costs and bringing everything back down to earth.

Bathroom remodeling, along with kitchen remodeling, takes its toll on homeowners in terms of misery, unmet timetables, and high costs. Given the staggeringly high cost of bathroom remodeling, it pays to think outside the box and search for smarter and more economical alternatives. After a low-cost and lean bathroom remodel, not only will you have a clean, bright, and functional bathroom, you will have considerably more money in your bank account than homeowners who went the more expensive, wasteful route.

We like the Rebrilliant bamboo rack because it has sliding doors that hide clutter and take up less space than swinging doors. The bamboo should also hold up well in a moist bathroom. Photo: Wayfair

Our pick

Bamboo Over the Toilet Space Saver

Bamboo Over the Toilet Space Saver

Over-toilet racks get a bad rap, but this one should keep you happy with its attractive appearance, durable construction, and sliding doors that won’t invade your airspace.

Buying Options

*At the time of publishing, the price was $121.

After researching more than twenty over-toilet storage racks and considering nine, we found the Rebrilliant Over the Toilet Storage is the best. This cabinet is made from more durable materials than the competition, has sliding doors that hide visual clutter while taking up less space than swinging doors, and has the highest user reviews of any cabinet we looked at. We didn’t actually test racks, but

How to Prevent Bathroom Condensation

How Is Condensation Formed?

Condensation is the bane of every bathroom. Bathrooms are often humid places, and moisture is released into the air by something as simple as taking a shower. As the moisture mixes with the air as water vapour, it will eventually make contact with a cold surface, forming as droplets on things like mirrors or windows. The hotter the water vapour, the more moisture the air can hold and the more that can be deposited on cold surfaces.

That’s why condensation becomes a bigger problem whenever you take a hot shower, and there’s lots of steam rising from the water. Apart from it annoyingly misting up mirrors and windows, it can also cause problems with mould in your bathroom by quickly ruining wallpaper and other surfaces.

While you’ll never be able to eliminate condensation, at least your bathroom will be less likely to develop problems resulting from
