[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.

 They removed some hardy board siding that had been exposed to lots of water and was rotten...Took old out, replaced with new, primed, caulked and painted all in one morning. Schon Holman was magnificent. He knew what he was doing, came dressed suiting the quality of work I expected, did a thorough, perfect job, left site immaculate and was professional in his conversation and demeanor. Would definitely use Schon and BACK again. 
 Today concludes my home updating experience with Back Construction. It is with gratitude and satisfaction I review Shohn and my kitchen transformation. There were many just in time process changes that needed Shohns' expertise and patient consideration. He approached them through an experienced eye and one by one sought a solution , never an excuse. This is a testimony to.his professionalism and attention to detail. Thanks Back Construction for choosing top quality staff. Thank you Shohn for taking care of me like you would your family. 
 Back Construction helped turn my rental property from the ugliest house on the street to one of the best-looking by designing and building a super-custom open gable porch roof to replace an outdated awning. The project was complicated by the need to work with multiple residents and me, the owner, but clear communication from start to finish made the process easier. They were conscientious about my budget without cutting corners on the quality, appearance, or service. 
 I was very pleased with Schon Holman who repaired a faucet incorrectly installed and repaired cabinet damaged by water. Back was quickly responsive to my request and adjusted original estimate when work was done. I would highly recommend Back. 
 Highly recommend Back Construction! They screened in part of our deck and built a pergola. The project went smooth from beginning to end. The sales manager and project manager were easy to work with and took everything into consideration. The work crew were very professional, on time and cleaned up daily. Our screened in porch has become our favorite part of the house! We will definitely be using Back Construction again. 
 I couldn't speak more fondly on my experience with Back Construction. We had the columns on our front porch repaired and we are extremely pleased with the workmanship. Schon Holman and Tom Gebhart were very professional.The Home was built in the 1800s and with the original columns still standing, the team took extra care in the repair and their preservation. They also were able to lift the porch and level out the roof which seemed like quite a task. Im very happy with the outcome. They even gave advice and information on the products they used for future reference. Thank you very much Back Construction. I will be recommending your work to others.
