If your bathroom is a little snug, you’re going to need to get creative with design to maximize the space. Inspire Kitchen and Bath Design is Vermont’s premier source for kitchen & bath design and installation. We’ve put together 5 tips to help you navigate through redesigning a small bathroom.
- Use the Corners.
You need to make use of all the available space and the corners of a small bath area are great places to install additional storage or shelving.
- Pick a Small Toilet.
Consider replacing your toilet with a more compact model. Newer, compact toilets not only take up less space, they use less water, making them more environmentally friendly.
- Use Solid Colors.
In small areas, patterns can appear to “shrink” the space. Get creative. Play with solid colors until you find one that opens up your bathroom.
- Pick a Sliding Shower Door or Shower Screen.
Sliding shower doors don’t need any space for clearance. The clear window also gives the impression of a larger bathroom.
- Downsize Your Vanity.
Perception is everything, consider building a small vanity or wall mounted sink. But if you go with a wall mounted sink, remember that you’re going to want to add extra shelving to your bathroom . . . perhaps in the corners (see #1 above).
