Renovation Tips for Small Bathroom Spaces

By on March 18, 2019

It is quite fun to renovate or remodel your bathroom; however, if you have limited space, then things can get quite challenging. It is hard to come up with brilliant ideas as to how you can fit everything you want in a tiny space.

Another challenging thing is how to put bathroom items into certain places that will still leave users with more than enough space to move around without any discomfort. So here are some tips on how to effectively renovate your tiny bathroom space at home.

Install your shower or tub in the farthest corner

Usually, a bathtub and a shower enclosure take up significant space in the bathroom. It is better to have them installed in the farthermost corner of the room to maximise the remaining space.

Install a corner sink

Choose a compact bathroom sink that will fit the corner of your tiny bathroom space. You can also create a small cabinet or a couple of drawers where you can store extra towels and hide your toiletries. When you have a small bathroom, it is essential that it looks clean and clutter-free.

Skip the glass doors

If you are renovating your bathroom, it is ideal to install glass doors right behind the bathtub or shower area. However, if you have limited space, then you need to set aside this idea and replace it with a shower curtain or a glass panel instead because it will not take up any space at all. Just choose a shower curtain that will complement the walls and design of your bathroom.

Install a big mirror

A mirror is an essential accessory that should be in every bathroom. However, if you have a small space, a bigger mirror is ideal for mounting to help create a visual illusion of a bigger and longer bathroom area.

Install tiny corner shelves beside your shower

It is also essential that you keep your bath essentials organised and out of reach from small children. You can install a little rack by the corner wall so it will be easier for you to find the things that you need while taking a bath.

Install additional storage under the mirror

Another space saving tip is to maximise the use of mirrors by adding a few shelves underneath it. The extra space is good for keeping additional sets of towels, bath essentials, soaps and you may also use it as a medicine cabinet.

Use natural light

If you have a small bathroom space, it is essential for you to make use of natural lighting to make the place look more spacious than its actual size. Make sure that your bathroom window is not being blocked to allow sunlight to enter the bathroom. Also, make sure to use fluorescent lights instead of yellow incandescent bulbs so that your bathroom remains well-lit any time of the day.

Small bathroom spaces are quite tricky to furnish. You need to be creative and find inspiration from other designs so that you can successfully finish your project.
