Renting an apartment doesn't being you can't have the bathroom of your dreams! Keep reading for the top tips to making the most of the bathroom space in your Ottawa Apartment:

Open Up Floor Space

With limited space to move around inside your apartment’s bathroom, the last thing you want is additional clutter occupying your floor. When organizing and furnishing your bathroom, think vertical. Install shelves and hooks to open wall space to keep necessary items within reach and out of the way. Be careful, as some landlords have restrictions concerning holes in the walls. In order to avoid making unwanted damage, opt for floating shelves or command hooks.

Move Towel Racks to an Unused Area

Towel racks are an important part of any bathroom, used to hang hand towels and bulky bath towels. Hanging these in a central area of the bathroom can occupy a large amount of space and make the room look smaller than it actually is. Hang towel racks on the back of the bathroom door, or on the wall to the side of the sink. It may also be wise to hang larger towels in a separate area, such as in your bedroom or closet.

Take Advantage of Shower Space

In order to eliminate clutter in drawers and on shelves throughout the bathroom, try installing hooks and shelves on the walls in your shower to hang items such as loofas and washcloths. This will not only save space on other surfaces but will keep items accessible during your showers. Additionally, in order to store more items, try installing suction cup shelves or a decorative shower caddy.

Bonus Tip: One of the quickest ways to spruce up a rental bathroom is to change out the old shower head for a new one.

Brighten-Up Space

Swapping out incandescent light bulbs for LED lights will not only brighten up your space but will save you money on your monthly energy bill. You can also brighten up space by choosing neutral décor. Choosing light-colored shower curtains, bath mats, and hand towels, in good quality materials (to ensure that they stay looking fresh and well-maintained) will help your bathroom look renewed and refurbished.

What Else Can You Do?

The Ottawa Apartments team has compiled a list of additional steps that you can take to make any apartment bathroom look brand new:

  • Deep clean areas that are normally lacking in attention such as the space behind the toilet, cupboard doors, grout, etc.
  • Swap out the toilet seat.
  • Paint the walls (if your rental agreement allows it).
  • Replace the hardware (if you are planning on staying long term).
