Bathroom Renovation Ideas for a Small Space
If your bathroom is on the smaller side and leaves you feeling cramped as you’re preparing for or winding down your day, there are some simple remodeling tips that could help make it feel more spacious. You likely don’t want to think about the expense involved in knocking down walls to expand your bathroom, so your best option is to make the best possible use of the space you have. Here are some helpful tips to consider when you remodel a small bathroom space:
Consider a Clear Shower Enclosure
If your bathroom currently features a tub/shower combination with a shower curtain, you can give the illusion of more space by having a shower with a clear glass enclosure installed. Even if you keep your tub, it will benefit from glass doors.
Find Creative Storage Options
You’re going to need a place for towels, toilet paper, and personal hygiene/beauty supplies, but you might not have space for a bunch of cabinets. Some ways to maximize a small bathroom is to recess shelving inside walls and put towel hooks behind the door. You’ll also want to avoid pedestal sinks that don’t allow for cabinets.
Use Larger Floor Tile
Most designers recommend larger tiles for small bathroom spaces, as fewer grout lines make the room seem larger. You may also want to consider installing tile in a diagonal pattern, which also creates the illusion of a larger space.
Bright lights can make a room feel larger, so be generous when installing lighting. If you’d like to be able to control the ambiance in your bathroom, consider switches with dimmers.
