Remodeling the Smaller Bathroom

June 14, 2010

The bathroom is probably the busiest room in any home and one of the most remodeled. Bathroom remodeling is second only to the kitchen in popularity with American homeowners every year, however remodeling a smaller bathroom can be quite a challenge. There are however several aspects of bathroom design that if done right can make any bathroom look and feel bigger and more functional. Here are a few tips:

Floors – A bathroom floor should be as practical as it is attractive. Ceramic tile flooring is a great choice for any bathroom but choosing a lighter or neutral color to have installed in a smaller bathroom can make the space feel larger than it really is. Ceramic tile is also a great way to create a very coordinated look since it can of course be installed on the wall as easily as it can on the floor.

Showers – The shower and/or bath takes up a good amount of the available square footage in a small bathroom. Clear-glass shower doors stretch space visually and free you of those rather nasty shower curtains that often end up moldy after just a few months use. Glass shower doors also give you far more design freedom, no need to match other accessories in the room to the shower curtain.

Storage – Efficient storage is essential in any bathroom but doubly so in a small bathroom where space is at a premium in the first place. These days there are some great bathroom cabinetry options available that are designed to make the most of the space in which they are installed while still looking great. Many small bathrooms actually have unused space that can be regained with the clever use of smaller cabinets.

Sinks – Pedestal sinks are great but can waste precious space in a smaller bathroom. If you still want a sink that is on display rather than one built into the bathroom counter top and essentially hidden away there are some very attractive above counter bathroom sink options available that are practically works of art in their own right.
