Everyone spends a lot of time in the bathroom. 

It’s not only a place where we groom and shower, it’s also a place we go to regain our composure or relax. Many people choose this place out of all of the other rooms in their home because it has a lock on it. You can shut the world out for an hour or two. 

Since the bathroom is such an intimate place, why not customize it to make it as comfortable as possible? IF you find you’re bored with your all-white bathroom or would like better lighting to do your hair, shaving, and make-up, Design Nuenza can help. 

Read on to find out how you can create your own ideal design and create a bathroom environment where you feel like yourself again.

Wall Materials

Turning your home bathroom into a spa is still very much trending. And part of that trend is using stone for your walls. Depending on your budget, there are a few natural stone choices that will make your bathroom more rustic or luxurious. Limestone, soapstone, and onyx are popular choices. 

Tiles are another way to go. Adding tiles to your walls will provide texture, whether you opt for a geometric or oddly-shaped pattern. 

You’ve most likely heard of marble being used for countertops, but it can also be used for the walls. It will give the room a clean look while providing a natural pattern of colour, such as white with pearl grey tones. 

Remember that you can choose which walls to redo. Some homeowners prefer to renovate only the shower walls in one of the above materials while others do the entire room.


Achieving the best lighting is tricky because the room’s configuration and your needs will greatly affect your lighting choices. For example, if your countertop is at the farthest point away from the window, you will need optimal artificial lighting fixtures. 

Lighting fixtures come in all shapes and sizes:

  • Recessed ceiling lights
  • Ceiling lamps
  • Pendant lamps
  • LED strip lighting
  • Vanity lighting
  • Wall sconces
  • Chandeliers

Because lighting is so difficult to decide upon, a balance of natural and artificial light is essential. Our experts can discuss at length what you’re looking for in order to provide you with the best design results.

Silver faucets, drawer handles and lighting fixtures are nice, and some people prefer them while others want to find features that pop, particularly if the walls are white.

Here are some colors to consider in your Montreal bathroom remodel:

  • Black and pewter will draw the eye in and help to break up any large expanses of white walls or cabinetry.
  • Gold is subtle, like silver, but it has an extra level of luxe that will make it stand out without being too startling. If you’re looking for gold in a darker shade, then brass is the answer. Both gold and brass will warm up your bathroom’s décor.
  • Brushed nickel is darker than silver and can be the solution for homeowners who want something in the silver palette. It’s ideal for pairing with blues, green, and shades of purples.

You can also mix and match metals. Our experts will provide you with suggestions.
