Update your bathroom with a fresh new look

Designer Jaclyn Harper shares easy tips for updating a bathroom into a fresh, inviting space.


When planning out our bathroom makeover, I looked at a few different configurations to maximize the space. But, since we ended up buying a new house, I knew I needed to keep this reno looking fabulous, but on a strict budget. The layout of the space would have to stay as is, so that we wouldn’t need to move any plumbing, and we could get things started right away.


The true inspiration for this bathroom came from the tiles. I instantly fell in love with the unique pattern of the Avery tiles from StoneImpressions. I started playing with the idea of using the tile as a feature wall and didn’t look back. The design on each individual tile looked so handcrafted and luxurious, it really set the tone for the space. And, they were a quick-ship option, arriving right to my door.


I went with the 60-inch Ashburn Vanity from Foremost, available online at The Home Depot Canada. It is the perfect size for our space and the colour is gorgeous. My favourite part? It has feet! It really looks like a piece of furniture more than a bathroom vanity. We decided to add an additional sink and this vanity became instantly more functional.


When it came to our faucets, I decided to go with a matte black finish. The fact that the faucets don’t match the hardware on the vanity adds an interesting combination of metals to the space. I highly recommend mixed metals in your next bathroom reno! This also allowed me to incorporate a polished nickel shower head and some polished nickel in our vanity light. We ordered towel racks and our toilet paper holder in the same matte black collection from Pfister, exclusive to The Home Depot Canada.
