Remodeling a Small Bathroom
It is not at all uncommon to have a small bathroom in your home. Whether it is a half bath, ¾ bath, or even a small full bathroom, you want to make sure you are getting everything out of this room that you can. If you’re planning on remodeling bathroom, there are many things that can be done to help you ensure the results are something that you will love for years to come.
Combine Form & Function
When you have a limited amount of space, it often impossible to add in decorative items that you may like. Instead, you need to make sure that everything you place into the bathroom has a good balance of both form and function. This means you need to ensure that things like your countertops, storage cabinets, faucets, shower curtains or doors, showerheads, and other items all work really well and also look great. Not only do these items need to look great on their own, they need to look great when looked at as a whole.
Use Splashes of Color
It is a common suggestion to use a lot of whites and light colors to make a small room look larger. While this is very effective, there are often other options when working on a bathroom. Since you don’t really need to make the room appear huge, you can get away with adding splashes of dark or bold colors that really stand out can help to make the room look great, and add a feel of additional depth that makes even small rooms feel more comfortable.
Almost all bathrooms have at least one mirror in them because they are necessary for getting ready and making sure you look great. If your bathroom is small, you may want to add in larger mirrors. Mirrors don’t just reflect your image back at you, but they will reflect the entire room. A large mirror can effectively make it look like your bathroom is twice as bit as it actually is. Using mirrors with beautiful frames will be a beautiful addition to any small bathroom.
Keep the Lights Out of the Way
Having plenty of lighting is important for small rooms because the lights help to make everything appear clean, clear, and larger. You don’t, however, want to take up any space with the lighting fixtures. Instead, consider recessed lighting that will provide you with the light you need without taking up any space in the bathroom at all. Whether the lighting goes into the ceiling, into a cabinet, or in some other location, you’ll love the way it looks and the way it makes the whole room look.
Patterns on the Floors, Ceilings, and Walls
Adding patterns to the floors, ceilings, or walls can help to ensure your room looks as large as possible. There are many different patterns that can really trick your eyes into thinking that the room is longer or wider than it actually is. These designs can look really nice at the same time, which means it is a great way to get two benefits from one decision.
