Updating your bathroom is one of the wisest investments you can make in your home. Not only does it help you save money in the short-term but also it increases the value of your home, ultimately increasing the return on investment you will see.
Upgrading toilets and faucets in your home adds water efficient fixtures, and your water bill will reflect that. Also, these updates are designed to improve the look of your bathroom and will modernize your home.
Small Looking Big
In your small bathroom, space is a luxury you probably don’t have. Design ideas will stretch the boundaries of your creativity, but a small bathroom also offers the opportunity to make a cozy, calming space by maximizing the room you do have.
One important way for your small bathroom to look and feel so much bigger is to design your walk-in shower with a curbless entry. With a monochromatic tiled floor and no curb on the shower, your eye is less likely to be interrupted by the step. Along that same line, you should consider using a glass wall on your shower so that there is no harsh line to create a visual barrier.
When it comes time to decide on color, stick with a lighter palette to keep the room airy and bright. Dark colors close in a space, so if you are working with a small space to begin with, dark colors will only close it in even more and leave you feeling uninspired.
Small Bathroom Remodeling Ideas
Small square footage doesn’t mean that you have to feel like you are living on a postage stamp. Here are three great, easy ideas to revamp your existing bathroom into a seemingly spacious spot.
Rather than waste it, the wall space in your bathroom is a great place to add some extra storage. Open shelving will maximize the space, increase storage space, and won’t cramp the room the way traditional shelving could.
When tiling your bathroom, consider playing with the direction of your tiles. By switching traditional subway tiles from horizontal to vertical, your eye is drawn upwards toward the ceiling, ultimately giving the wall is taller than it is.
One of the best ways to maximize your small bathroom is to take out your bathroom door all together and add a pocket door. By using the existing wall to house the door, it opens up all of that usually dead space behind it, leaving you with the impression of a larger room.
