Small Bathroom Remodeling Ideas

There are many ideas for your small bathroom remodeling project.  Here are my top small bathroom improvement ideas.

Living with a small bathroom doesn't have to be an inconvenience. If you’re planning a small bathroom remodeling project, there are several things you can do to take advantage of the small space with little effort and, usually, minimal investment in labor and money.

Start by putting your plans down on paper. When working with a small bathroom remodeling project, you want to be sure you’re making efficient use of every square inch of space.

While shopping for cabinets or fixtures, including towel bars, avoid the very dark or heavy pieces and opt, instead, for white or light wood colored cabinets and the lighter weight towel bars and accessories. They are much less likely to make a small space look weighed down.

Use soft or neutral colors. Paints and wallpapers in lighter colors will open up the space and give a feeling of more room. Woodwork and moldings painted to match the walls will also provide the illusion of space.

Remember that with any small bathroom remodeling project, mirrors can do wonders for creating a feeling of space. Two mirrors placed opposite each other will give the illusion of a very large open space. Place a large mirror on the longest wall of your bathroom, where it can best reflect the most light Continue The Illusion.

If you’re fortunate enough to have a window in your small bathroom, take advantage of the light. Windows, with little or no trim, such as a lace curtain or a valance, will allow for the most light and make your bathroom look larger.

Another solution might be to use mini-blinds that can be opened to let in the maximum amount of light or closed for privacy. Consider frosting your window instead of installing an actual window treatment. You will gain privacy without any loss of light.

Use scaled down fixtures when remodeling a small bathroom. Large chunky fixtures look out of place in a small bathroom. A pedestal sink is a nice option for a small bathroom though you may have to come up with new storage ideas. However, this might be as simple as placing a storage unit over the toilet. Also, if you don't use your tub, consider replacing it with a new glass-enclosed shower stall.

There are plenty of ideas for your small bathroom remodeling project that can make your limited space look and feel a lot larger than it is and make it an efficient and inviting and all done without knocking out any walls!
