Having a small bathroom in your home is not always a problem if you know how make the most of your space. If you’re looking to remodel your bathroom, here are five small bathroom tips:
Small Bathroom Tip #1 – Add lots of storage
Oftentimes, bathrooms never seem to have enough storage space. This is especially true in small bathrooms. To make the most of the space you do have, it’s important to get creative with storage. Take advantage of the area under your sink by adding a tiered organizer, mount baskets to the inside of your cabinet doors or even add a magnetic strip to keep track of bobby pins and hairclips.
Above the toilet, consider hanging baskets in lieu of shelves. They are a functional way to store items you may need to access more frequently such as extra rolls of toilet paper, hand towels and lotions. You can style the shelves by adding mason jars and storing your Q-tips and cotton balls here.
Lastly, if you don’t have a medicine cabinet, you’re going to want one in your small bathroom. Today’s designs are much more stylish than their ancestors and are perfect for keeping healthcare and beauty products neat, tidy and out of view.
Small Bathroom Tip #2 – Add texture
Just because a bathroom is small does not mean it has to be boring. Guest bathrooms or powder rooms are great places to experiment with new design trends. By adding different textures and colors to your bathroom, you’re creating a multidimensional space that pops and does not feel so boxed in. Consider adding contrasting tiles and patterns such as a subway tile in the shower and a terrazzo floor.
Small Bathroom Tip #3 – Save space where you can
In small bathrooms, it’s important to save space where you can because there isn’t much of it. Consider adding a pedestal sink or two to replace a large, traditional vanity that’s a space waster.
While this tip may have you enlisting the help of a professional, another great way to save space is to add a sliding pocket door. You can then perhaps add an open shelf or that pedestal sink you love!
Small Bathroom Tip #4 – Install glass shower doors
Don’t let anyone fool you, small bathrooms can absolutely have walk-in showers. Bulky bathtubs with curtains will make your bathroom feel closed off and appear much smaller than it really is. By installing glass shower doors, you’ll make a small space feel bigger.
Small Bathroom Tip #5 – Enlist the help of a professional
DIY is not always the way to go and it’s not always guaranteed to save you money. At the end of the day, a skilled contractor knows all the tips we’ve highlighted here and then some! Working with one from the beginning can save you money on unused supplies, mistakes and mismeasurements. Not to mention, they’ll save you lots of headaches.
