Good Things Come in Small Packages: How to Remodel a Small Bathroom

A small bathroom can still become the luxurious haven you dream of with some top small bathroom remodeling tips.

If you are remodeling a small bathroom, there is plenty to consider, but one of the most common questions we hear is “How do I make the most of the space I have?”. We are able to help you think through every aspect of your bathroom design to create a look you’ll love.

Magnify with Mirrors

Choosing to include a large mirror, particularly a floating vanity that won’t take up precious space, can make your small bathroom appear to expand. Lighting above the mirror can also reflect throughout the room for a bright, enlarging effect.

Mirrors and lighting can help give a small bathroom the illusion of more space.

Sleek Shower Style

When remodeling a small bathroom, choosing the right shower can go a long way towards saving space and creating a seamless overall appearance.

  • Opt for a shower curtain or sliding glass door to minimize the space taken up by your shower
  • Choose glass shower doors so the shower area and main bathroom appear as one.
  • Continuous tiling over the floor or walls, into the shower area, can also prevent a segmented look

A glass shower door keeps the flow of the bathroom smooth.

Choose a Trough Sink

Choosing the right sink is an easy way to save on bathroom space.

  • A trough sink can be just as practical for most people’s needs, and is a stylish choice for anyone looking to maximize the space they have
  • Consider shelving or woven baskets for storage under the sink
  • Choose a wall mounted faucet to save even more space.

A trough sink or floating vanity can help save space from a bulky vanity.

Storage and Accessories

Having a storage strategy is essential for any small bathroom makeover. Here are a few storage hacks to consider to keep your small bathroom looking tidy.

  • Add a towel bar to your shower door
  • Choose built-in shelves behind your bathtub or shower
  • Add a wall cabinet to save on floor space
  • Fill a spare corner with a storage tower for rolled towels.

Overhead storage shelving frees up valuable floor space.

Play Tetris with your Layout

If you are starting from scratch with a small bathroom remodel, there may be countless space-saving layout options you are yet to think of. Simple changes can make a huge difference to the overall look and feel of your bathroom. Extending the counter over the toilet, or choosing curved counter corners are just a couple of small suggestions that can go a long way to making the most of the space you have.
