Bathroom Renovation Guide for Condos



At Western Bathrooms, we understand the challenges of renovating a small bathroom, especially in a condo. There’s a tremendous amount of planning that needs to go into the project to ensure all the pieces fit properly and looks great too. So we’ve created this guide to help you through your condo bathroom renovation. Let’s begin!


1. Checking the Math

A typical condo bathroom measures 5 feet by 7 feet, and your standard bathtub is 60 inches long. You’ll need enough space next to it for the toilet and sink along the long wall, and the total space will be around 35 square feet.


Considering the bathtub will be around 30 – 32 inches wide, the tub / shower area is going to take over 1/3rd of your bathroom. For this reason, you’ll want to avoid using an opaque shower curtain to avoid cutting off almost half the room in your bathroom. A sliding glass shower door has become the most popular choice for condo bathroom developments, as it makes the room look more open and contemporary.


Combining a fixed panel with a swinging glass door is another option for a great look with easy access to the shower, while ensuring no water will spill out. Each space will be slightly different, but keeping in mind that using a 18 inch fixed panel and 24 inch glass door will leave about 18 inches open (where the water will typically not reach), something to keep in mind. You’ll also want to ensure the swinging door doesn’t hit anything either.


2. Keep the Floor Clean

Another great way to utilize the space in your bathroom is to keep as many fixtures off the floor as possible, such as a floating vanity.


Floating vanities satisfies both a need for handy storage and a desire to maintain an open plan, especially when they have a simple white or dark style. A floating vanity can be placed very close to the bathtub while looking great and taking up as little space as possible. As for the toilet, a water-saving minimalist toilet ensures it’s not too tall or wide, while keeping water prices down and efficiency high. Mount the mirror above the vanity and put some shelves above the toilet for maximum space and storage.
