Even before the popularity of small homes, the bathroom was typically just a small space at home. Given this, many will think that it will be difficult to remodel it. However, there are bathroom design tricks and ideas that will surely give any small bathroom space a total makeover.
Small Bathroom Renovation Tips
1. Choose light, monochromatic colour scheme
Dark colour tends to give a cave-like atmosphere. By using monochromatic and light colours from the paint to the furnishings, the small bathroom will feel like a huge space. Similar floor and wall tile colour will also contribute a light feel.
2. Use colourful small items
If you go for light colours in the bathroom when you renovate it, pick out small colourful items. They can be a cute little red rug or blue soap dish. A bit of colours from these bathroom articles will inject a livelier feel for a wonderful bath time.
3. Create reflective surfaces
To add a wider space feel, reflective surfaces will hugely help. Try to add a mirror the size of an entire main wall. Not only mirrors can create reflections. Even glossy fixtures can contribute to the vibe. Therefore, go for tubs, sinks, countertops, or anything that will create a shiny, reflective appearance.
4. Opt for pocket doors
Pocket doors can save up space for any small or big bathrooms. It may consume just a tiny part of the entry wall. However, if done appropriately, this type of door will let you maximize the entire bathroom space.
5. Smart storage matters
Tucked everything neatly into a customized or multi-purpose countertop. When we say customized or multi-purpose, it means it will allow you to have some space to place your coffee or hair dryer on. Just put what is essential for use in the bathroom like towels or hygiene supplies. Don’t make it an extension of your closet.
