Remodeling Ideas with a Small

Bathroom in Mind


The Best Remodeling Ideas for those of us with a Smaller Bathroom

Everyone envisions their future remodel and has dreams about what it could look like. Oftentimes those dreams are over ambitious. However, that does not mean that part or most of that vision cannot come to pass. For a homeowner with a smaller bathroom, an incredible remodel is still within grasp. Here are some tips and tricks so that you can get everything you want out of your remodel without getting more than you bargained for.

Opening Doors (Quite Literally)

For your dream remodel to shape out and be everything that you want it to be, everything needs to be functionally sound. The first step to making sure that happens is coming up with creative door ideas for your shower and bathroom entrance. In a small bathroom every bit of space matters. The last thing you want is to walk into a bathroom with doors hitting when halfway open and taking up too much space. Rather than go with a traditional door on hinges, consider a sliding door or curtain for the bathroom entrance. When it comes to the shower, a sliding shower door would be best for those with a half bath. There are many stylish sliding door designs that are sure to leave your bathroom looking modern and unique. 

Turn on the Lights

In a small bathroom lighting can have a significant impact on how large or small the room appears. Too many dark or dim spots in the bathroom have a negative contrast and make the room feel smaller. If you want your half bath to feel like a full bath, make sure you have adequate lighting throughout. The addition of reflective surfaces helps light distribution so features like a glass shower door are always a good idea.

Beware the Vanity

Oftentimes you will see a small bathroom that is taken mostly up by a large vanity with way too many features. The best option for a homeowner with a half bath is to go as simple as possible. Simple does not mean basic or plain. Simple means do not overextend the vanity beyond what is needed. A simple single shelf vanity with a storage cabinet and mirror can go a long way. There are so many amazing small vanities designs out there. Here at Central Cabinetry, we are dedicated to making a remodel that you cannot take your eyes off of.

Adjust What You Can

When remodeling your small bathroom, you want to make minor adjustments that make a big impact. One such adjustment is raising the ceiling. A vaulted or lofted ceiling can make a small bathroom feel much larger. Adding storage space within the shower is also a design idea that can prevent unnecessary loss of space.

Regardless if you have a big bathroom or a small one, a tiny kitchen or an enormous one, here at Central Cabinetry we are here to make your remodeling dreams come true. If you need any advice or have any questions you need answered, feel free to schedule an appointment with a design expert below.
