Small bathrooms don’t have to feel cramped and stuffy. With a careful selection of colors, materials and bathroom fixtures, your small bathroom will not only look but also feel a lot more spacious. What’s more, with a small-scale budget bathroom remodel, you can get the result you want without burning a hole in your pocket. Check out our big ideas for small bathrooms.
Homeowners often choose to mount the faucet on the wall even if their bathroom isn’t small. Do you know why? Because wall-mount faucets are not only space savers, but also very much in vogue. They usually go with a narrower sink, and the combination guarantees your bathroom will feel more spacious. It’s especially popular to combine a wall-mount faucet with a vessel sink for a modern look.
Choosing a space-efficient sink is paramount for making a small bathroom feel bigger. Pedestal sinks offer a long lasting appeal so you can’t possibly go wrong if you choose them. Apart from the traditionally oblong ones, rectangular pedestal sinks are gaining more and more popularity.
Wall-hung (or freestanding) sinks are another space-saving option. They are basically pedestal sinks only without the pedestal. These sinks look particularly sleek and contemporary. They also provide ample space underneath for moving around without bumping into anything.
Corner sinks are also a popular choice for extremely small bathrooms.
We’ve come to realize that the best way to maximize the potential of a small bathroom is to move the fixtures and vanities up. We saw the trick works great with sinks, so why wouldn’t it work with vanities? Make the vanities float and you’ll get more space (and fewer bruises!), without compromising the storage space.
We all dream of a luxury spa-like bathroom with soaker tubs we can just plunge into and enjoy a lavish bubble bath. Even if the size of your bathroom makes this impossible, it doesn’t mean you have to go with a run-of-the-mill shower. Modern walk-in showers come with a range of features that guarantee some bathroom fun time, but also save space. Get rid of the shower door and go for a glass panel instead and your bathroom will feel larger, not to mention look more attractive.
What’s more, there are specially designed steam showers that can fit even small bathrooms. With a 3 feet x 3 feet steam shower, it’s entirely possible to enjoy the revitalizing effects of steam in your very own tiny bathroom. You know what they say – good things come in small packages.
Space-Expanding Colors & Patterns
With a small bathroom, you simply can’t leave anything to chance. You may have loved a set of intricate-pattern tiles you saw on Houzz, but they will only make your bathroom feel more cramped. Go for either large-scale or monochromatic patterns and combine them with bright colors that will open up your bathroom and give it a sense of freshness.
It’s often the simplest tricks that have the strongest effect. The same goes for mirrors. Mirrors play a wonderful trick on our eyes, and suddenly any room, however small, feels more spacious. Install a grand mirror in your bathroom and you’ll see how your bathroom will instantly feel double its actual size. It’s all about the feeling, right?
