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

Small Bathroom Guide | Homebuilding & Renovating

The bathroom is not only a necessity in the home but also somewhere to relax and unwind. However, despite our passion for stylish and luxurious bathrooms, not all of us have the available space for huge bathing areas. Follow our top tips for making the most of a small bathroom.

Prioritise Space According to your Needs

Thorough planning of how to best use your modestly scaled space and good design will help you make the most of a small bathroom. Before coming up with any potential layouts, you should give thought to what you need from your bathroom.

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Who will be using the room? Is it an en suite, or a family bathroom that needs to take into account the needs of small children?
  • Will you need a bath, or would a shower be sufficient for your needs? Or would you ideally like both?
  • How

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.

1. Use Lower-Cost Lookalike Materials

Retaining and refurbishing your existing materials is always

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.

We didn’t actually test racks, but

10 Bathroom Habits Your Partner Hates About You

During the heightened state of fear society has about the spread and contraction of COVID-19, people are trying to make sure they’re not doing anything that could make contracting the virus any easier.

Obviously, the easiest change you can make is how often you wash your hands. So, before you exit the bathroom, use some soap and water please.

Speaking of the bathroom, do you know how many bad habits you actually have when it comes to “the throne”? Well, your partner sure does. Do you use your partner’s bathroom towels? A new survey by the company Drench showed that 56% of couples do.

  • not cleaning up after themselves 23%

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
