Best Tips for Remodeling a Small Bathroom

Best Tips for Remodeling a Small Bathroom

Looking For a Local Contractor Fast?

September 9, 2009

A bathroom remodel is a big project, and smaller bathrooms may present special challenges. However, with the right planning and strategy, your small bathroom can feel bright and spacious, and might even become your favorite room in the house. Below are some helpful tips to consider when remodeling a small bathroom.

Bathroom Remodeling Contractors Can be Invaluable

Sure, you love your tub, but it takes up a lot of room in a small space. Also, older bathtubs can acquire a "not quite clean" look that no amount of scrubbing seems to remove. Even experienced do-it-yourself types might hit a snag with this install, so it may be best to recruit a contractor for jobs like this one.

Mirror, mirror on the wall...

... Whose bathroom is largest of them all? With a well-placed mirror or two, it will seem as if yours is. Mirrors reflect the space, making it seem twice as large. Mirrors also reflect light and color, perking up your bathroom environment.

Renovating a Bathroom? Cut the clutter

Trinkets, bathroom products, and family photos all have a place, but not on display in your small bathroom. Clearing the counter space and any other visible space to create clean, unbroken lines will help your bathroom appear larger.

A Wall-Hung Toilet Saves Space

As an added bonus, it also makes cleaning easier, because it eliminates hard to clean toilet bases. This is another project where you could benefit from the help of a professional contractor. When your bathroom remodel ventures into the areas of plumbing or electricity, there's no shame in asking for a professional's assistance.

Color counts

Light colored paint, wallpaper, and flooring all contribute to a soft, open space that appears larger than it may actually be.

With these tips in mind, you can start getting excited for your small bathroom remodel!
