How to Remodel a Small Bathroom

Feb 26, 2020

How to Remodel a Small Bathroom Working out of a cramped bathroom is no homeowner’s dream. Unfortunately, a lot of homes are plagued by small, contractor-grade bathrooms. And in some nightmarish situations, that one dinky bathroom is shared by three or more people. There are ways, however, that you can create the illusion of a larger bathroom! Stick around as we provide you with some handy-dandy remodeling tips for maximizing space in a small bathroom.

Let There Be Light

You can create an illusion of spaciousness in your cramped bathroom by simply upgrading the light fixtures in the room. The principle is to use what you have! Most bathrooms will have at least one lighting fixture, usually over the vanity or sink. For this area, we suggest that you stay away from exposed light fixtures that cast a harsh yellow glow. Instead, try swapping it for diffused lighting like a frosted-glass sconce. The soft glow of these lights will reflect off the mirrors in the room, casting a bright natural glow that can make the small room appear larger.

Create a Color Palette

For smaller bathrooms, try to stick with neutral colors. You can keep this palette consistent by choosing bath towels and hand towels in similar shades. Pro tip: rather than matching colors exactly, try choosing colors in slightly different shades of the same hue. This will keep a room feeling layered and personalized.

Play With Patterns

When in doubt about color, a safe bet is white. However, that doesn’t mean you need to restrict your creative flair! Playing with patterns in a small bathroom is an effective way to take the focus off the space’s small size, redirecting it wherever your pattern of choice is. The key to successfully incorporating patterns into your bathroom is scaling. Choose a medium-sized pattern, repeat it, and sprinkle it sparingly throughout the space.

Floorspace, Baby

Think about the bathroom trifecta for a moment; you’ve got a bath and/or shower, a vanity, and a toilet. In a small bathroom, these elements can crowd each other—especially if they are scaled to fit a standard-sized bathroom. Keeping visible floor space in mind is a great way to avoid visually crowding the space. Some solutions could include:
