Small bathrooms are hard enough to decorate and use. When it comes to remodeling, they are practically a nightmare. They do not have to be, though. As long as you know what to do, remodeling a small bathroom is not all that hard. It can also be rewarding in the end, as you can use your remodeling venture to create as much space in the bathroom as possible. The following are some tips to make small bathroom remodeling as painless and fruitful as possible.
The floor plan is the first thing to consider when remodeling a small bathroom. The most important aspect about this particular floor plan must be its ability to save space. It will be important to prioritize. If you value your bath time over gold, you will likely go for the larger tub and opt for some smaller pedestal sinks and a minimal cabinet space. Maybe you are a person who only takes showers—in this case, you will not need a tub, so you can install a shower and have all of the cabinet space you need.
This is not the time to hoard. We love nick knacks, but now is not the time to pack them into a room that barely fits the bare necessities. This is the best time to go through the trinkets that clog your bathroom and decide what is not absolutely necessary. If you cannot part with your items, simply place them elsewhere in your home. A small bathroom is not the place for clutter. Furniture may also have to go. Bathroom storage cabinets and upholstered stools are aesthetically pleasing and trendy, but there is only so much your small bathroom can fit. If you stuff too many items into a small space, the pieces will not be able to speak for themselves. You will be wasting statement pieces.
With that being said, the only thing left that will occupy your bathroom are the fixtures. This is where a small bathroom gets to shine in its remodel. Now is the time to go all out with stylish sinks, toilets, cabinets, showers or bathtubs. Keep it small and relatively simple, but realize that these fixtures are going to be the voice of your small bathroom post-remodel. Choose wisely.
Instead of a standing full length mirror, consider hanging one on the wall or even on the back of the door. This will save room while still giving you the full length mirror you need to check out your outfits.
Your color scheme should consist mainly of white. White and similar colors allow the room to seem bigger, which will create the illusion of extra space.
Organization is the important thing to consider after the bathroom remodeling has taken place. If your bathroom is disheveled or cluttered, no amount of remodeling can make it seem spacious.
