If your home is more than a few years old, your bathroom is likely on the small size. While this can make bathroom remodeling more difficult, it is still possible to have the bathroom of your dreams. Just remember to follow these five small bathroom remodeling tips.
Small Bathroom Remodeling Tips
1. Measure Before You Buy
While you should always measure before you start any remodeling project, measuring is especially crucial before you purchase anything for your small bathroom remodeling project. You would hate to waste your money on a beautiful fixture that won’t even fit in the space.
2. Stick to Lighter Colors
Dark colors only make small spaces look smaller. Invest in plenty of natural lighting and stick to lighter colors, such as fresh white, wispy blue, soft yellow or pale pink. Dark colors can make fantastic complements for an otherwise light color scheme, but don’t make them the star of the show.
3. Stay Away from Busy Patterns
Too many patterns in a small bathroom remodeling project can quickly overwhelm the space, making the bathroom look smaller than it is actually is. Use patterns, but use them sparingly and in small doses. For example, you may choose to use a patterned shower curtain but to keep the walls plain.
4. Use Mirrors and Glass Wisely
Using mirrors is a great way to visually open up a space during the bathroom remodeling process. Install a mirror across from the window to maximize the amount of light in the room or choose a sliding glass shower door instead of a shower curtain to keep from closing off the space.
5. Get Creative with Storage
Small bathrooms don’t generally leave much room for storage, especially if you choose a small pedestal sink for your bathroom remodeling project. Get creative with your storage options by placing a shelf over the toilet, by hanging items on pegs in the shower or by building drawers or shelves into the space between the wall boards.
