Small bathroom Renovations
Use larger tiles on floors and walls; it will save you money and make your bathroom look bigger.
Buying and renting smaller houses and apartments is one way to find more affordable housing. Smaller houses are easier to clean and cheaper to maintain. Smart bathroom renovating ideas will help you get the most out of the space you do have while making your bathroom look larger than it actually is.
Lights and Mirrors
Lights and mirrors can make a dark and cramped bathroom seem bright and spacious. Mirrors are like striped shirts for rooms. Place a mirror on the long wall of a narrow room and it will immediately look wider. For maximum effect, place two long mirrors on opposite walls to create an infinity pool effect. Lighting is also important. Try to place mirrors so they will reflect the outdoor light. If natural light is an issue, install a skylight to bring a dark bathroom to life. Bathroom lighting should be bright, uniform and glare-free. Install additional lighting fixtures from several sources to avoid shadows.
Save valuable space in your petite bathroom by combining a bath and a shower into one convenient and luxurious walk-in shower. A frame-less, standalone shower is a practical way to maximize space and give your bathroom an uncluttered and modern look. It is also a useful addition for older people who struggle to get in and out of bathtubs.
Tile Your Bathroom
Add character, beauty and durability to your bathroom by tiling your walls and floors. If money is an issue, use tiles to frame your shower and your bathtub, and install a stylish backsplash to your sink. Choose large tiles in light colors for walls and floors; they will trick your eyes into making your bathroom look larger and brighter.
A Fresh Coat of Paint
Choose a simple palette when painting a small bathroom. The lighter tones of green and blue can provide a soothing and relaxing mood and will make the room look bigger. Avoid electric blues or radioactive oranges, which can make small rooms look too busy and cluttered. Try to combine the color of your walls with your bathroom tiles and furniture to create a more unified theme.
