When it comes to bathrooms, there is definitely no bathroom too small to renovate. In any bathroom remodel, the goal is to maximize the space that you have to work with. Many of you are aware of the remodeling shows online and on television where you see the contractors knocking down walls to expand living spaces. But sadly, this isn’t always possible, especially when it comes to bathrooms. Sometimes, you really are stuck with a really small space, no matter what you might do. Therefore, it becomes all about figuring out the bare necessities and how to make the space that you have work the best way for you.
Of course, when you’re dealing with bathrooms, you also have to negotiate with plumbing for the toilet and sink, and if it’s a full bath, a shower or tub, as well. At times, you may need to approach concrete delivery companies, if the roofing needs to be re-constructed. Having to reconfigure plumbing can get very expensive, but it’s critical that the bathroom be laid out in a way that limits claustrophobia. Also, using neutral or bright colors and having big mirrors can make the room feel much larger than it is. Try to avoid dark colors, especially with cabinetry, in a small space, as it makes the space feel more closed-in.
Sometimes the layout is fine and it just needs a facelift. In the long run, it’s all about having a bathroom that feels comfortable for everyone’s routines. You also want to have enough storage space to have everything you need handy. The last thing you want is to not have space for anything you might need while going about your daily routines. Having a perfect blend of storage for the essentials, a space that feels comfortable and cozy, and a layout that feels natural is your ultimate goal with any bathroom remodel.
So when considering any sort of remodeling project for your bathroom, remember that no space is too small to improve. No job is too small because the smallest changes to your home can make the biggest changes in your life.
