Small Bathroom Remodel Ideas


It can be difficult for homeowners to find good information on how to remodel a small bathroom. Most design ideas found in home décor magazines feature huge, spacious, luxurious, bathrooms – which are spaces most of us don’t have in our homes. But instead of building a bathroom addition with a massive cost per square foot to remodel, there are a number of great ways to make the most of the space you have.

When you’re thinking of decorating ideas for small bathrooms, there are four main areas to keep in mind:

  • making the most of existing space
  • ways to make the room look bigger
  • clever storage solutions
  • adding a hint of luxury

And Planese has some great tips in each area to make your small bathroom feel larger:

Make the most of existing space

  • Replace the tub with a shower
  • Install a wall-hung toilet and sink
  • Don’t install a fitted vanity or double sinks
  • Choose wall-mounted cabinets

Make the room look bigger

  • Increase the amount of light by installing a larger window
  • Add a large mirror and mirrored backsplash to reflect light and make the room seem larger
