3 Remodeling Ideas for Your Small Bathroom
Not every home has a spacious, spa-like washroom. Many are designed more for function than for fashion, especially in older homes. Since adding floor space is often costly, and not always a viable option depending on the layout of the surrounding rooms, here are a few ideas to help you make the most of your small bathroom.
1. Chin Up
Using your vertical space is a great way to help a room feel more open. Lead the eye up with floor-to-ceiling cabinets to maximize storage or with a subtle design like a wall decal, stencil, or wallpaper. You can also achieve this by making a well-designed shower one of the room’s focal points.
2. Light and Bright
Natural light makes a space feel more airy. If there’s a good window in the room, or if there’s room to add one, try to build your design around it if possible. Making something bright or reflective, like a window or a mirror, a focal point helps to open the room up. Darker accent colors in flooring, cabinetry, and details like towels will help ground the space and keep it from feeling washed out.
3. Divide and Conquer
Depending where the walls are, you may have room to divide the space up a bit with curtains or folding screens that don’t obstruct the lighting. This is a great way to hide elements like the tub or shower, and helps give off that cozy, tucked-in feeling.
