A lot of people think that because it’s usually smaller than other rooms in your home, this limits the design possibilities for a bathroom remodel. With modern concepts and a few nifty know-how’s about aesthetics, you too can finally give your bathroom that new look you’ve always thought about. Here are a few ideas that can turn any small bathroom into a lovely part of your home.
Making simple changes can have a huge impact on how you perceive the space of your bathroom. For example, replacing the glass door with a shower curtain frees up plenty of space. A curtain that you can slide back and forth will definitely provide more space-saving benefits than a door that takes up space when opening or closing.
Another way to make a cramped space look larger is to avoid sharp edges and dark colors. Darker colors can suggest shadows which make any space look smaller than it already is, while round edges help soften it up. Besides, having sharp edges in a small bathroom is just asking for a hip-related accident to happen.
Aside from the simple changes that you can do on your own, you will need the help of bathroom remodeling contractors to make a few upgrades to your bathroom. For example, extending the counter where your faucet is over the toilet is a great way to add extra room for any items you have in the bathroom. You may also consider a floating vanity with large mirrors. Mirrors are a great way to make rooms look bigger.
Toilets, Tubs and Sinks
One of the bigger challenges you face when designing the space for a smaller bathroom is finding a place for the necessary parts while making sure that they are still up to code. You can discuss your ideas with your contractor before you begin any work to help you determine whether something can be done or not. They may also make suggestions that will definitely help you save some space.
For example, many people choose to only have a shower installed, which does save space but limits what you can do in the bathroom. Consider a combination shower and acrylic bathtub replacement to give you a bigger sense of space, without sacrificing any amenities.
