You may think that there’s no chance for your bathroom to be more functional, look bigger and easy to move around but if you will plan a small bathroom remodeling, you’ll learn otherwise. The first step to do this is done by determining specific areas that may require update. After that, you must check your budget as even with a small remodeling project, it can cost you significant amount of money.
The truth is simple color change of the walls can entirely change the way how your bathroom looks like. Using lighter colors similar to light green, peach, yellow and light blue can make it feel bigger than it is. If you have enough cash to do a major overhaul, then you may want to also change the accessories, flooring, paint and fixtures. If your budget permits, consider replacing the sink, bathtub and toilet as well.
One of the many ways you can do small remodeling project is to optimize the space by building an impression of more space. In addition to light colored wall paint, choose pale tiles if you are about to replace the floors too and do it as well around the sink or shower to ensure that they have matching wall color. Your bathroom will look smaller if you use dark colors so if you can, try to avoid such.
Another good place where you should spend your budget is the lighting. As a matter of fact, without consuming a lot of space in your bathroom, you can make it look bigger and brighter by using recessed lighting fixture mounted above the sink or in the ceiling. You may want to use large mirror too in the remodeling as it’s a great way of reflecting light and making the area look spacious.
Another option to try is by replacing old fixtures with new and smaller ones. Now in case that your bathtub needs a little bit of retouch as well, then you may want to consider buying a smaller tub or installing a stand-up shower.
In older homes, vanity sink is typically large so you may switch it with a pedestal sink. By doing this, it can almost instantly make your bathroom appear bigger. Small bathroom remodeling tip that will cost you almost nothing is by keeping clutter out. There are plenty of ways that you can do this like for instance, if you have linen closet, then put things that aren’t used, if you have a corner, build a corner shelve to which you can store makeup, candle, shampoo etc. You can install as well flat cabinets to the wall to be able to have additional storage space for storing bathroom necessities like razors, conditioners, shampoos, soaps and so on.
