Pay Close Attention to Measurements when Designing Your Small Bathroom
Small bathrooms may lack the space that you desire, but that doesn’t mean that you need to sacrifice all your wants and needs during your remodeling project. Instead, you should work with what you have and create a design that will give you everything that you want.
One of the best ways to do this is to pay close attention to the measurements of your current space. Think height instead of width and depth, and you will be amazed at what you will be able to fit inside there.
A helpful tip that we have shared time and time again is to skip the shower curtain for the shower. Instead, we recommend installing a glass door that will make your bathroom look much larger than it really is. Your view will continue through the glass to the wall of the shower, rather than stopping right at the edge of the shower or curtain. This won’t add usable space to your bathroom, but every extra bit of visual space will make the room more appealing.
If you have the space to install a longer tub, we recommend that you utilize that extra space to create a niche for storage or supplies. The niche can be placed within the wall at one end of the tub, and it can be a game changer if you are already short on storage space.
We know that everyone wants double sinks in their bathroom, and if you are thinking that it just isn’t possible in yours, you may be wrong. Vanities can be installed that are not as deep or long as traditional double sink ones, and the result is the two sinks that you have always dreamed of. You still might not have the desired counterspace that you wanted, but you’re one step closer to your dream bathroom. Plus, you may be able to install a pull-out shelf under the countertop of the vanity, which you can pull out and use when you need it.
Towel rods are a necessity in every bathroom, and if you are struggling to find a spot for yours, we urge you to look above your toilet. Even if you already have planned storage units above there, you may be able to inch them up a little further to allow for the installation of your rods. If that is not an option, think creatively by utilizing a space inside the shower or over the bathroom door.
No one should ever feel discouraged by the size of their bathroom when they are remodeling, because there are plenty of available options even in the smallest of spaces. The idea is to be creative and think outside of the box while working with what you have, because the results will be better than you could have ever imagined.
