Remodeling small rooms such as bathrooms are all about making the best use of small spaces. You can use some easy tricks to make the space seem larger than it is, and make use of simple storage solutions. The following tips should work for almost any small bathroom remodeling project.
Use Creative Storage Solutions in Your Small Bathroom Remodeling Project
For smaller bathrooms, you might need to use a few creative storage solutions. Some of these solutions you can purchase and some of them you can have your bathroom remodeling contractor install.
To have a place to put extra tissue, towels, and other items that you need in your bathroom, you might need to employ the use of some creative shelving. Luckily there are many different shelving options to consider when remodeling your bathroom. Shelving can be built into the wall, installed on the wall, or you can simply put up floating shelves.
When remodeling a small bathroom, every empty spot is a potential for prime real estate. Installing simple hooks and floating shelves can create more storage space without overwhelming the space and making it look too cluttered.
You are unlikely to fit a lot of cabinetry into a small bathroom. When planning some small bathroom remodeling projects, the only true place for cabinet space is a cabinet under the sink. You can make the most of this small storage area by purchasing some crafty organizers to get the most out of the space. Simple plastic containers, canvas bins, or built in shelving can help you use up every bit of space allotted in your under-sink cabinet.
For even more cabinet space, look for over the toilet cabinets. Your remodeling contractor can installed these onto the wall, or you can purchase ones that can come on stands that slide in over the back of the toilet. Although small, any bit of cabinet space can help a small bathroom situation.
Using Patterns and Colors in Your Small Bathroom Remodeling Project
When you are remodeling your bathroom, don’t skimp on your flooring. Your bathroom flooring choices can change the overall outcome of your entire bathroom remodeling project.
When choosing the flooring materials for your small bathroom remodeling project, consider the particular details that will affect your choices. In a small space, your flooring needs to be sturdy and stand up to a lot of use. You also want your flooring to help create the illusion of a larger space. Using large tiles or large patterns rather than small intricate flooring can help to open up the space and make it look bigger. Your tiles and patterns should follow a diagonal pattern to elongate the floor and make the bathroom feel larger than it actually is.
The paint you use in your bathroom can also make a big difference when it comes to remodeling your bathroom. Paint can help freshen the space and make it look more inviting. You can also use paint to create the illusion of a larger space. Cool or neutral colors or white brighten up the room and make it feel spacious. If you like bright or bold colors, use those as accents and decorative items to bring color into the room.
