A remodeling project for a small bathroom is a worthwhile undertaking, but it can be a challenge. The limitations in floor space shouldn’t stop you from building a comfortable bathroom, especially if you wish to make it look bigger and brighter. Krier’s Construction, your trusted local home builders, share these tips for enhancing the look and functionality of small bathrooms.
Be Clever With Storage
A small bathroom appears even smaller because of excess stuff lying around like your hygiene products and towels. Keeping clutter to a minimum is the first step towards a more stylish and functional bathroom, regardless of space. There are plenty of clever ways you can stow away your bathroom products like mounting towel bars on blank walls, installing overhead cabinets and using a shower curtain with pockets to hold your stuff.
Focus on the Design Elements
There are three design elements to make your bathroom look bigger: round designs, glossy walls and tiny tiles. Round designs include round sinks, vanity mirrors and even a round window. The absence of edges makes the room feel bigger.
Small, round windows aren’t distracting for the eyes unlike large ones that take up a lot of space on your wall. Krier’s Construction has both the products and services you need for your replacement windows. We have an impressive selection of round specialty windows.
The second design element is glossiness. Hotels and luxury resorts use this element to their advantage because it makes their small bathrooms look brighter. Take your cue from this design style, and make your bathroom look both brighter and more luxurious.
The third design element is the use of tiny tiles. Instead of using what most people use – large or medium tiles – make your bathroom appear bigger by using tiny tiles. The smaller they are, the more pieces you’ll need, tricking the eyes into believing there’s more space to fill with tiles.
Skip the Bulky Bathroom Components
Ditch large bathroom components like your extra floor cabinets and mantel. In fact, you should get rid of the bathroom components you rarely use when you have limited space. Big items draw attention, making the bathroom seem as small as it really is.
Trick the Eye With Compact Bathroom Facilities
There are a lot of compact bathroom facilities on the market for small bathroom remodeling plans. There are compact sinks, toilets, bathtubs and standing showers. The best thing to do is buy only what you think you’ll need most and get rid of your spacious bathtub for something that provides the same function minus the heft.
