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.

Water wise, tankless toilets conserve up to 35,000 litres of water a year

Water wise, tankless toilets conserve up to 35,000 litres of water a year

Tankless toilets are a modern option for homeowners looking for a cost-effective solution for renovating or adding a new bathroom.

Their compact and streamlined aesthetic make them a great option for smaller bathrooms. They work differently from traditional toilets, so if you’re thinking about installing one in your home or cottage, make sure you choose the right product for your needs.

With a conventional toilet, the tank sits above the bowl to allow gravity to draw water down into the tank for use when the toilet is flushed, and then re-fills with water.

A tankless toilet has no tank because it does not need to reserve water for flushing. Instead, it is connected directly to your home’s existing plumbing system so that water enters the bowl at a high pressure when the toilet is flushed, pumping away the effluent and wastewater. An electric pump built into the toilet chamber helps power the flush instead of gravity.

The biggest advantage of tankless toilets is the efficiency with which they help homeowners save water. Some models even provide a dual-flush option to reduce consumption even further, giving you a watersaving solution unmatched by conventional toilets.

Other benefits include:

  • Space-saving compact, streamlined design
  • Pipes can be installed inside the wall or under the floor with minimal construction
  • Easy installation and minimal maintenance required

Did you know that Saniflo’s eco-friendly plumbing solutions, like the popular Sanicompact, can help homeowners save almost 35,000 litres of water per year?

The average toilet uses approximately 9.8 litres of water per flush. Assuming that each person uses four flushes per day that translates into roughly 14,300 litres per person per year. For a family of four, that’s more than 57,000 litres of water every year. Saniflo’s Sanicompact uses as little as 3.8 litres of water per flush, saving approximately 8,750 litres of water per person. For that same family of four, this would save their household approximately 35,000 litres of water per year!

The Sanicompact, along with many of Saniflo’s other plumbing solutions, is designed to be ecological throughout its lifecycle from installation to waste disposal.

The unit reduces water consumption though a contemporary, tankless design and dual-flush macerating system, making it perfect for the green minded user.

With simple installation requirements and easy set-up, the Sanicompact is a great solution for a half-bathroom, powder room, or to convert an under-used closet into an extra bathroom.

Sanibest Pro Grinder Handles Toughest Flushes

Sanibest Pro Grinder Handles Toughest Flushes

The powerful Sanibest Pro from Saniflo allows for a modern bathroom to be installed virtually anywhere. It contains a 1-horsepower bathroom grinder system that can easily handle the accidental flushing of sanitary articles, such as feminine products, baby wipes, dental floss, condoms, etc. In addition to the main toilet connection, the unit comes with two side inlets (one on each side) that allow for various possible sanitary fixture connections, including shower, sink, bathtub, etc. It also offers ready access to the enclosed main pump components.

Operating at 3,600 RPM (revolutions per minute) for rapid elimination of heavy-duty waste, the Sanibest Pro is designed for homes, as well as public restrooms in offices, schools, factories, restaurants and any other situation where flushing sanitary items might be a concern.

Constructed from hardened stainless steel, the grinder blade rotates against a stationary, perforated base plate, so that waste is quickly and easily dispersed through the base plate’s holes before being pumped into the 3/4-inch discharge line.

THE SANIBEST PRO GRINDER SHOWN BEHIND THE WALL WITH AN EXTENSION PIPE, SERVING A ROUND SANIFLO TOILET BOWL.

Plumber-friendly: A unique advantage of the Sanibest Pro is a removable service panel on the top of the unit, providing easy and direct access to the main pump components, without removing plumbing connections or disconnecting the unit from the toilet. The highly efficient, durable, induction motor has no gears or brushes to wear out, making it virtually maintenance-free.

“Because of the higher-horsepower motor and improved cutting power, there is no need for the service plumber to access the grinder blade inside the macerating unit,” explains Saniflo National Sales Manager Ross Evans. “The Sanibest Pro is still the only bathroom grinder system capable of handling virtually any sanitary item that has been accidentally flushed.”

Extra pumping power: Certified by CSA International for use in both Canada and the United States and IAPMO (UPC) listed, the Sanibest Pro pumps effluent higher and farther than other systems: up to 25 feet vertically when it is installed below the sewer line; or nearly 150 feet horizontally to the sewer stack or septic tank – or a lesser combination of these two distances. This extra pumping power provides home and building owners with greater flexibility in locating a new bathroom in relation to the soil stack or the septic tank.

THE SANIBEST PRO GRINDING TOILET SYSTEM IS A HEAVY- DUTY, POINT-OF-USE GRINDER PUMP FOR THE MOST DEMANDING OF TOILET APPLICATIONS

Quiet giant: While the heavy-duty grinder minimizes the risk of blockages, the unit employs the latest quiet technology designed to emit less noise and vibration. “Its operating volume – like other models in our ‘Quiet Range’ lineup – is very understated,” says Ross Evans. “Sound and vibration improvements reduce noise levels to nearly an afterthought.”

The Sanibest Pro comes fully preassembled for installation directly behind the accompanying, high-efficiency WaterSense rear outlet toilet; or behind a finished wall using the optional 18-inch extension pipe for applications where building owners desire the pump to be hidden.
