5 steps to make your small bathroom look bigger

5 steps to make your small bathroom look bigger

With any space, I always choose the biggest piece of furniture first – even in a small area. In a bathroom, that would be the vanity. Always remember to measure to allow for the biggest vanity possible because of, well… storage. That’s my main priority, anyways.

Faucets & hardware

Up next, it’s time to choose your faucets and hardware. This can be a daunting task, but think about how these items will work with your overall aesthetic. When in doubt, select a classic design. Once you decide on the faucet and the configuration, you’ll need to decide on the finish. I like to choose a finish that has spot defence. This prevents fingerprints and watermarks – woohoo! So, for a bathroom that’s going to get a ton of use, it’s a wise choice.

Tile

When it comes to tile, you’ll want to work with the tones of your vanity. My biggest tip for choosing tile for a small space is to keep it consistent. When you use the same tile on the floor and in the entire room, it makes the space look bigger. Another tip is to use a lighter colour on the floor, so it draws your eye upwards. This can also give the illusion of a larger space. I ended up going with a large, warm grey tile. I needed something that would be easy to clean, as I know this bathroom will get a lot of traffic. Bigger tiles and less grout was the way to go.

Lighting

Time to choose your bathroom lighting. First, start by deciding which type of light will work best in your space. Don’t feel like you need to choose small light fixtures for a small room. This can actually enhance how petite your area looks and feels. Instead, select options that allow the most light into the space and help to enhance the overall design. My rule of thumb for finishes is to stick with two in a bathroom. When you start to add more than that, it can make things look busy and cluttered.

Wall treatments & accessories

The last thing you’ll want to decide on is the accessories and wall treatments for your space. Wallpaper always adds so much character and can be so cost effective in small spaces. I love using baskets as garbage cans or just as decoration. A really simple trick is to fill one with toilet paper rolls – practical, pretty and a little extra storage, too.

National Homelessnes Charity hosts Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for Innovative Affordable Housing Project

Raising the Roof opens innovative affordable housing project

Latest News


Raising the Roof opens innovative affordable housing project

Raising the Roof, a national homelessness prevention charity, was recently joined by Kyle Seeback, MP for Dufferin-Caledon, Sylvia Jones, MPP for Dufferin-Caledon, and Allan Thompson, Mayor of the Town of Caledon, to celebrate the opening of Cedar Mains, a newly renovated home which will offer affordable housing for people with disabilities at risk of homelessness.

The launch of the new housing project comes in the midst of a national housing crisis, where more than 35,000 people sleep on the streets every night, and people with disabilities are particularly affected.

In the face of this growing concern, Raising the Roof developed an innovative new program, Reside, which acquires vacant or underutilized homes, renovates and converts them into affordable housing. The first home launched through the program is 1 Cedar Mains Dr. (Cedar Mains).

“Every night, thousands of low-income Canadians sleep on the streets, and people with disabilities are particularly vulnerable,” says Marc Soberano, executive director of Raising the Roof.. “With Reside, we acquire under-utilized homes, fix them up, and offer them as affordable housing to people who need them most. In the process, we restore a local community asset, create training and employment opportunities for people facing barriers through the construction work, and create housing for vulnerable members of our community. Cedar Mains is the first of many homes we aim to convert into affordable as we partner to provide solutions to the housing crisis.”

Prior to the redevelopment, 1 Cedar Mains Dr. was an abandoned heritage church. The property hadn’t been utilized in many years. Envisioning more for the site, Raising the Roof approached the Toronto Region Conservation Authority, owner of the property, requesting the opportunity to access the property through a long-term lease.

The TRCA agreed, providing a 20-year lease to Raising the Roof for just $1. The charity then partnered with social enterprise contractor, Building Up, to complete an extensive renovation on the property. Through the construction work, Building Up provided training and employment opportunities for over 90 people facing barriers to employment, more than 85 per cent of whom went on to careers in the trades.

Raising the Roof then brokered an innovative partnership with CAFFI Housing Inc. to serve as the affordable housing provider, identifying suitable candidates for housing. CAFFI is a Caledon-based non-profit organization operated by parents of adult children with disabilities that provides housing solutions for their children and other people with developmental disabilities facing housing vulnerability.

In executing this project, Raising the Roof benefitted from tremendous community support. The project’s funders included the Home Depot Canada Foundation, the Province of Ontario, the Region of Peel, the Town of Caledon, the Town of Vaughan, Royal Bank of Canada Foundation, Hockey Helps the Homeless, the Ontario Trillium Foundation, Caledon Heritage Society, Social Venture Partners, and the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp.

“Working together with our community partners, The Home Depot Canada is committed to ending youth homelessness and we are so proud to support Raising the Roof with the launch of their new home to support youth that are at risk of homelessness,” says Pam O’Rourke, chair, The Home Depot Canada Foundation and vice-president, merchandising, The Home Depot Canada. “By supporting organizations that provide a safe place to call home and important life-skills programs, we can help bring housing and hope to our most vulnerable youth.”

The Canada Revenue Agency is trolling commercial accounts in the hunt for tax cheats

The Canada Revenue Agency is trolling commercial accounts in the hunt for tax cheats

Latest News


The Canada Revenue Agency is trolling commercial accounts in the hunt for tax cheats

Earlier this year, Home Depot Canada commercial clients received a letter warning them that the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) would be auditing their books in an attempt to uncover under-reported income by contractors and homebuilders.

The letter stated that a federal court ordered had compelled Home Depot Canada to provide the CRA with the business names and annual transactions charged to every commercial account client between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2016. That data will be cross-checked against each business’s reported income for those four years. If the CRA suspects under-reported income based on the volume of materials purchased, those companies will be contacted for more information, and potentially audited.

“It’s a very clever way for CRA to find out who is cheating,” says David Rotfleisch, a Toronto-based tax lawyer.

Home Depot Canada customers aren’t the only ones being looked at by the CRA. The agency has also issued “Unnamed Persons Requirements” to Rona, Roofmart, Canac-Marquis Grenier, Service Financier Groupe BMR, and Watson Building Supplies.

“Multiple home improvement retailers received requests for customer information from the CRA, and when The Home Depot Canada received such a request for information, it not only disagreed with, but pushed back on the CRA request for over 3 years,” says Paul Berto, Home Depot Canada’s director of corporate communications. “Following the ruling of the courts affirming the right of the CRA to require such information from retailers, The Home Depot Canada complied with the Federal Court Order and the law.”

Now we assume that all readers of Renovation Contractor are fully on the up-and-up when it comes to reporting their income… but, if you do know a guy who might have something to worry about, there is one option to help mitigate some of the penalties: file a voluntary disclosure. Voluntary disclosures are something of a “do over” for your taxes, where you admit to under-reporting your income and are willing to face the consequences.

“If it’s accepted, there will be no prosecution and you may get a break on the taxes and penalties,” says Rotfleisch.

Penalties for tax evasion can include fines up to 200% of the original tax owning, and up to five years in jail. Those convicted for the more severe crime of tax fraud could face up to 14 years in jail.

“There will be prosecutions to set an example,” assures Rotfleisch.

4 best places to buy a can light conversion kit

4 best places to buy a can light conversion kit

If your home has recessed can lights built into the roof, you’ve probably entertained the idea of converting them into another kind of light that hangs lower or provides better illumination. If you’ve decided you’re going to be converting your recessed lights to a different style of lighting, but you don’t know where to buy a can light conversion kit, you’re in luck. Here are the four best places to buy one.

1. TheCanConverter

When it comes to finding an online shop that’s fully dedicated to recessed can light conversions, there’s really only one place worth mentioning. Regardless of what kind of renovation you have in mind, TheCanConverter (The ORIGINAL Recessed Can Light Conversion Kit) has the right can light conversion kit to help you get the project done with minimal hassle. They offer color finished designer medallions in satin, oil rubbed bronze, polished nickel, aged bark, bark, chrome, tortoise shell and polished brass. They’ve even been featured on authoritative blogs and online magazines such as This Old House. The Can Converter’s kits can hold up to 50 pounds, which is about as heavy as most light bulbs and fixtures are going to get.

2. Home Depot

The Home Depot offers recessed can light conversion kits and therefore must be included on any list of the most popular kit providers. The main feature to examine when shopping for can light conversion kits from Home Depot is the size compatibility. Some models will adapt to four-in. recessed can lights while others are made for five- and six-in. cans. Of course, comparing aesthetics is also a worthwhile step in your comparison, especially if you’re aiming for visual appeal. Some of their can light conversion kits include adjustable cord mechanisms that can be set anywhere from eight to 48 inches in length.

3. Lowes

Some can light conversions will only allow you to convert the light into one kind of fixture, but Lowes (like the other brands on this list) offers conversion kits that include everything you need to convert your existing can lights into hanging lights, chandelier lights, flush mounts, pendant lights, and other forms of decorative lighting. These kits come with brackets and other hardware for mounting lights.

4. Lampsplus

Lampsplus is a standard can light conversion kit that is cheap but also very basic. It is compatible with can lights four to six inches in size and supports a 50-pound load. Other related DIY equipment such as bendable light stands, wire cutters, and flashing lights are not included with the kit, but can easily be added to adjust the lighting spectrum or create more flexible and useful fixtures.

Installation is Surprisingly Simple

While installing a new lighting setup in your home might seem like something that will involve complicated steps and wiring, it’s actually a project that most people can complete in a matter of five to 20 minutes. With many different types of lamps and lighting systems that come standard with your home, it can be difficult to figure out which one you need or even what exactly you’re going to do with it. TheCanConverter eliminates that hassle by including all of the components and instructions needed to simplify and streamline the installation process.

After two years, we reveal our master bathroom reno

Latest News


After two years, we reveal our master bathroom reno

Two years ago, when we purchased our home, we knew that ONE day we’d get to our master bathroom. It was dated and needed a good reno, but we felt we could ‘live with it’ for a few years. Well, that one day finally came and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome.

The Plan

When planning out our space, I looked at a few different configurations. Ultimately, I was thinking I’d put a shower at the far end of our bathroom, install a smaller vanity, move the toilet over and put a claw-foot tub where the existing bath was. I think this would have made for a really functional space. The plan changed quickly over the course of a weekend when we bought a new house. Surprise…WE’RE MOVING AGAIN!! With that said, we still wanted to undertake this reno on a tight budget. Things would stay where they were so that we wouldn’t need to move any plumbing and we could get things started right away.

Tile

First off, I fell in love with these tiles from Stone Impressions. They were a quick ship option; I LOVED the pattern and they were unlike anything I had seen before. I started playing with the idea of using the Avery tile as a feature wall and didn’t look back. I reached out to Stone Impressions and was over the moon when they wanted to collaborate on our project. They shipped us the hand-selected Carrara marble tiles all the way from San Diego. When I opened up the package, I seriously couldn’t believe my eyes. The pattern on each individual tile looked so handcrafted and luxurious. I swear, we’re going to miss them in our new home.

Vanity

Next up, the vanity. We went with the 60″ Ashburn Vanity from Foremost available online at The Home Depot Canada. It was the perfect size for our space and the colour is GORGEOUS! My favourite part? That it has feet. It really looks like a piece of furniture. We decided to add an additional sink and it’s so functional for us. Before, we had so much counter space that we really didn’t use. We ordered the vanity online and it was shipped to our door (countertop, sinks and all).

Faucets & Hardware

When it came to our faucets I decided to go with matte black. I really love that the faucets don’t match the hardware on the vanity. The mixed metals work so well in our bathroom. This also allowed me to incorporate a polished nickel showerhead 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. They’re stunning! The accents of black really work so well with everything else we have going on in the space. The collection is exclusive to The Home Depot Canada and I couldn’t be more thrilled to recommend it. The water ribbons as it pours, the design works with any bathroom esthetic, it came with an easy-to-install, push-to-seal drain, it has a lifetime warranty AND there are other finishes to choose from. Major win!

Saniflo

When planning our bathroom reno, we thought we’d be able to incorporate Saniflo into our project. When they explained to me how it worked, I jumped on the opportunity for a collaboration. In the end, we didn’t end up moving any plumbing and didn’t need to use their system, but I can assure you, we’ll be using it in our new home and I’ll be telling my friends about it. What is it exactly? Let me explain: The Saniflo Sanicompact macerating toilet is the system that I’m referring to. If you’re looking to install a toilet in a trailer, a cottage, a basement, or anywhere else that typically requires you to move plumbing, the Sanicompact allows you to quickly and easily add a new bathroom without any major construction. There is no need to break the concrete or move plumbing lines because the Sanicompact can tie into your existing lines. The best part about this system is the tankless design, which makes it great for smaller spaces, and it looks very modern too. Sounds pretty great right? Well, that’s a wrap. Thanks so much for checking out our Master Bathroom Reno. We love it! Stay tuned for future renos in our new house. I can’t wait to start planning and creating.

Lighten Your Laundry Load

Latest News


Lighten Your Laundry Load

As a productivity coach, my mission is to help people have more fun while getting things done, and laundry is no exception. In my holistic model for sustainable performance, Productivity CPR™, the R stands for Ritual. Why ritual? Because I think the word ritual can give a sense of honour to what can often be perceived as mundane.

Laundry never stops, so if we’re going to have to take care of it, I like to encourage ways to make it a lot less onerous. Read on to find ways you might even find yourself enjoying it!

Shift your mindset

Whether it be processing receipts or doing laundry, a task that one finds tedious can be elevated with careful thought. Think of your clothing as a tool to help you do what you want to do and to help you make the impression you want to make in the world. Doing laundry then becomes taking care of the clothes that take care of you. This shift in perspective can elevate laundry from a mundane task to an act of love and honour.

Fit laundry in virtually anywhere

If space is tight, in a spot only 24” wide, you can install the ventless, Smart All-In-One Washer and Dryer from Whirlpool, which as it sounds includes both the washer and the dryer in one machine! Not only does it save space, you don’t have to worry about switching clothes from the washer to the dryer. It also saves you time with its high-capacity dispenser, which holds up to 20 loads worth of laundry detergent. With the new Whirlpool app you can turn it on from anywhere. This allows you to start a load while waiting for your daughter to hit the ice at hockey practice and track progress while away.

Simplifying the process

Whenever you go into the laundry room typically your hands are full. What better way to make the laundry process even more seamless than to have a touchless light switch? Just walk into the room and the light switches on for you. It’s simple things like this that can help ease the chore of this everyday task. The Home Depot Canada has several options to choose from.

Keep collection easy

Make sure you have an easy way to gather laundry anywhere it collects. Bedrooms or a shared bathroom are ideal spots and there are a variety of sizes and shapes to fit any space. A corner unit is fun in a kid’s room if you want to make tossing laundry in the hamper a fun way to get kids involved in the process. Hampers now come in a wide range of finishes as well so you can find something to blend in with your decor. The handles on the hamper shown here make it easier to carry. I love the wide variety of options at Neatfreak.

Hang darks and delicates to dry

A foldable, yet very sturdy rack in narrower than usual dimensions means you can tuck drying laundry into a smaller space, and possible even out of sight. This rack from Canadian Tire (canadiantire.ca)  is strong enough to hold not only clothes on the bars themselves as you would expect, but clothes on hangers along the edges as well increasing drying capacity.

Give yourself a treat

If you’re like me, in the winter months, your skin is dry. Add water, laundry and cleaning to the list and you have a recipe for dry, cracked skin. Why not have a luxurious salve on hand to use while doing the laundry, especially after any hand-washing, to keep your skin feeling soft and smooth? Made in Canada, from 80 per cent organic ingredients, toxin-free DermaCare Skin Salve from eScential Wellness will make you feel like you’re loving yourself a little bit and there’s nothing like given yourself a little love after some hard work.

Productivity Catalyst Clare Kumar inspires and guides busy people to live more organized, productive, healthy and fulfilling lives. As a Certified Executive Coach, productivity expert, experienced professional organizer, and mom of teens, she is excited to help others achieve sustainable performance and reach their potential.
