A Before & After Look At A Halifax Bathroom Renovation

Here is a recent renovation we did of an ensuite bathroom. Our client's main concerns were the old dated bathtub and surround, the toilet that had succumbed to hard water stains, and the worn countertop and sink.

This job took about a day and a half from tear out to clean up. This included a full replacement of the wet area and installation of new fixtures and counters. Let’s take a look at each of these areas and see how they looked before and after.

Bathtub & Surround (Before)

The old bathtub and surround were functional, but left a certain something to be desired. The tub itself was in decent condition but was fairly shallow and not the relaxing sanctuary to melt away your troubles that it should be. Matching the substance without style found in the tub, are the faucet and handle. Both in full working order but lacking that visual appeal.

The surround showed its age the most in the patterned tile with the unmistakable floral emblems. A remnant of the 1990’s and a stark reminder of the style atrocities that occurred at the end of the 20th century. Less charming is the mould growth on the grout and caulking, this is nearly inevitable in such a humid environment and difficult to remove once it has taken hold.

Sink & Countertop (Before)

The existing sink and countertop were both suffering heavily from wear and discolouration. These are common issues that eventually befall laminate and porcelain alike. Here we can see mild rusting of the drain and the seal around the sink.

We did find that the faucet assembly was a recent addition and was going to be to reinstalled in the new sink.

Toilet (Before)

The toilet was the biggest point of contention in the bathroom. It had suffered from years of hard water, resulting in the unsightly staining we can see here. Once the inner surface of the toilet has degraded to this state, most times the only solution is replacement.

Bathtub & Surround (After)

You would be hard-pressed to know this was the same space had it not been laid out for you. With a complete replacement, we can see a stunning transformation of the tub and surround. The new bathtub is significantly deeper, with a slight slope to the back to allow you to sink fully into relaxation without sacrificing space. Also, you can see the ledges set in the sides of the tub that allow you to rest your arms without having to remove them from the water.

The new surround benefits from a groutless acrylic surface that gives you the same clean appearance of white subway tile without the hassle and extended drying time that comes with installing ceramic tile. The built-in shelving gives you a place to store bath products that isn’t the ledge of the tub. An often overlooked benefit of this is that water can become trapped along the edge, creating an opportune spot for mould to grow.

The new faucet is a lovely oiled bronze, the same as the existing sink faucet. Creating a sense of cohesion that pulls the overall feel of the bathroom together into a welcoming retreat rather than the utilitarian necessity it was.

Sink & Countertop (After)

The faucet assembly feels much more in line with the elegance brought by the new marble-esque countertop and polished touch the squared backsplash adds. The real star though is the drop-in

sink. In addition to creating a beautiful smooth appearance, this feature makes cleaning the countertop so easy. No more worrying about build up on the seal between the sink and countertop.

Toilet (After)

A fresh new toilet is always a welcome addition to any bathroom, and this one is certainly no exception. Aside from the obvious bright, clean look this toilet totes a few extra features. The dual flush handle allows for water conservation, and the soft close lid prevents any chance of the lid or bowl becoming damaged from slamming shut.

Most interestingly the lip and seat section attaches to the back of the bowl with a set of quick release clips that pop in and out easily for cleaning.
