Small bathroom spaces are a challenge but you don’t have to sacrifice your style. You can create any look you desire whether you prefer a more modern or classic look. Small spaces also give you an opportunity to be more playful and add life to your space. Make the most out of your square footage with smart storage ideas, clever arrangements and adding an illusion of openness.
When remodeling your bathroom you have to think about storage. How do you create a storage area without adding clutter to your already small space? This is when you really have to be creative. When creating a modern look you can add wall shelves, shower caddies and towel hooks/racks, these allow you to store the items you need without taking up too much space. For more classic looks, you can add a bathroom vanity, wicker baskets or repurpose vintage items, like a wine rack, to use for towel storage.
To emphasize height make use of vertical lines, bold colors and contrasts when painting, tiling or wallpapering. Glass, gloss and mirrored finishes also help the light to bounce around your bathroom, creating an illusion of a cleaner, wider space. Another tip when designing a color scheme for your bathroom is to use darker colors or an oversized rug on the floor and using white or pale colors for the ceiling. This trick makes the room look taller and less enclosed.
Remodeling a small bathroom can be a challenge but if you take the time to think about how to transform your space, you can really have a lot of fun. For the best results and advice for remodeling, contact a professional.
