Cramped to Bold: Remodeling a Small Bathroom

[bs_lead]Bigger isn’t always better.[/bs_lead]

Whether you are remodeling a small en suite or a narrow powder room, the lack of square feet can be cumbersome to design, but it doesn’t have to be. Learn more about remodeling small bathrooms below!

Bigger isn’t always better. In fact, smaller spaces can allow you to experiment with bold colors and patterns and spring for more high-end materials. With the help of this guide, along with the skilled hands of BACK Construction, you can stop worrying about what to do with your small bathroom and realize how free you can be with your remodel.

Colors and Patterns

While you may be fearful of utilizing an intricate pattern, as it may be too busy, your fear may be subsided when it comes to small bathrooms. Graphic wallpapers can add dimension and whimsy to a small space, and due to the size of the room, they don’t come off as too much. Like patterns, bolder colors, such as dark blacks, deep blues, or bright greens, may be distracting in bigger rooms, but they can cheer up a smaller space, as well as provide freshness where there is often no natural light, or give your small bathroom a distinguished quality you wouldn’t think possible in such a small space.

Going all out on a kitchen, living room, or full-size bathroom may be out of your budget, but doing so in a small bathroom won’t break the bank and will provide a big impact. Vanities, wall-mounted sinks, or tile in marble or other stones can enrich a small bathroom. Likewise, gold gilded mirrors, top-of-the-line hardware, and elaborate molding and trim can add a touch of elegance. Not to mention, you can finally buy that expensive wallpaper you’ve been pining to use, but you just couldn’t afford for your larger rooms. If your small bathroom is big enough for a shower, using glass for your shower exterior can open up the room visually and make it appear larger than other, more solid materials. A small bathroom is where you can, and should, go big on materials and design.

Maximizing Your Limited Space

In a small bathroom, your space might be limited, but your design and storage don’t have to be. Round or wall-mounted toilets will provide more space than an elongated version. Also, medicine cabinets, built-in shelves, or below vanity storage will offer enough space for all your toiletry and pampering needs. Any fixture in the small bathroom should veer toward the small-scale, as this can maximize the amount of floor space. In addition to scaling down, considering the flow of the room can ensure it does not feel cramped, which can be accomplished by installing a floating vanity or pocket door to free up floor space. Just because you don’t have a lot of space doesn’t mean you have to skimp on what you can have in the room; it just means you have to be a little more clever about how to fit it in.
