Tips from Dean Large of Astro De­sign:

Ottawa Business Journal - Ottawa at Home - - HOME RENO BEFORE + AFTER -

1. Per­for­mance: Are your designing a re­treat or a func­tional space? 2. Shower or tub, or both? Do you ac­tu­ally have time for leisurely baths? 3. Use ma­te­ri­als that fit the space, func­tion, aes­thetic and level of main­te­nance

you want to put in. 4. Stor­age: be re­al­is­tic about de­sign vs stor­age. 5. Bud­get: set one, and be re­al­is­tic. 6. Don’t over­look small but im­por­tant de­tails, like where to put the towel bar

and toi­let pa­per holder. 7. Be bold with your fin­ishes. UP­COM­ING TRENDS Colour: It’s back! Look for navy, co­gnac, deep gray and al­most tank-like green. Met­als: In­stead of brushed nickel, you’ll find faucets, show­ers and bath ac­ces­sories in brushed gold, plat­inum, an­tique brass and oiled rubbed bronze. Open con­cept: Rooms to­tally open to the sleep­ing quar­ters with the toi­let con­cealed in its own wa­ter closet.
