a simple update of the flooring, to enlarging the room and replacing
all fixtures and finishes.

Bathroom renovations is an ideal time to make your house
healthier for you, the community and the environment. Our bathroom
renovations Toronto, Mississauga & GTA team suggests that when
assessing your bathroom renovations project, be sure to consider
the five essentials of Healthy Housing.
House as a System
A house is much more than just four walls and a roof—it’s
an interactive system made up of many components including the
basic structure, heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC)
equipment, the external environment; and the occupants. Each
component influences the performance of the entire system. Our
bathroom renovations Toronto, Mississauga & GTA team believes
that bathroom renovations provide an opportunity to improve
how your house performs.
Bathroom renovations often include changes to HVAC equipment
that can improve moisture management in the house. Structural
changes may improve air sealing and insulation, resulting in
increased occupant comfort and house durability.
Before you start your bathroom renovations project, you’ll
want to think about your bathroom, your needs and your budget.
Look carefully for signs of deterioration and the possible causes.
This will save you money and also help you to be better informed
if you’re dealing with contractors. Reflecting on your bathroom
renovations project will also help you to decide whether you
need the services of a professional. Being unsure of what needs
to be done, recognizing that the job is very complicated, or
that you don’t have the time or energy to do the work, are good
reasons to assign the job to our experienced bathroom renovations
Toronto, Mississauga & GTA team.
Did you know that Romans who weren’t able to afford bathrooms
of their own often used very luxurious public baths where businessmen
finalized their deals, politicians discussed politics and others
planned or gossiped about parties that have gone by?
Many of today’s best trends in bathroom renovations, remodeling
and design have been around for ages. As early as 3000 B.C.
people have been fond of maintaining good hygiene while also
surrounding themselves with luxury surroundings and bathroom
fixtures such as whirlpools or showers.
There are a number of existing bathroom design trends: going
back to classics is very popular lately as is creating a countryside-style
bathroom or a glass-and-chrome sleek bathroom. There’s a modern
trend of turning bathrooms into private spas complete with relaxing
massaging water jets installed in tubs, hand-held shower wands,
heated towel racks and heated floors; waterproof stereo systems
for the showers. Such bathroom luxuries are popular because
people feel more stressed and are often too busy to visit spas
or massage therapists few times a week. Let our bathroom

to your home.
