How to Make the Most of Your Space When Remodeling a Small Bathroom

One of the hardest things for a homeowner to deal with is a bathroom that is too small to really meet their needs. At Mission Tile West we have provided bathroom tile to many clients, including tiles that help make the space in a bathroom more useful and more beautiful. Keep reading to discover some of the ways you can help the space seem larger when you are working with a small bathroom.

Select the Perfect Vanity and Sink

Choosing your vanity and sink will be a big part of making sure you are making the best use of your space. For example, if you have a cramped space then installing a corner sink can use otherwise useless space. A trough sink looks stylish but also adds new room too. We suggest floating vanities that free up space underneath them to make the room look larger. You may even chose a rounded vanity to create space and prevent the sharp corners that might otherwise cause an issue in a small space.

Add More Counter Space by Extending it Over Your Toilet

If you really wish you had more counter space on your vanity, extend it over your toilet. This creates what is sometimes known as a “banjo” style because it has the shame shape. It is a clean, unique, and modern look that offers a great way to add shelf space without taking up space that could be otherwise useful.

Use What You Have

You cannot make your bathroom magically larger, but you can use the space you have as effectively as possible. One example is mounting a towel bar on the shower door instead of on the wall. This frees up the wall for another use (or decoration) and allows you to still get the utility of the towel bar.

However, make sure that what you’re changing makes sense over all. Using the same example, it will indeed give you more room if you install the towel bar on your shower door – but perhaps a better option for your particular room is to get rid of the shower door at all. You may not need it (a shower curtain can work just as well) and without a hard, solid door, the space can look bigger.

Choose the Right Colors

In addition to making smart decisions about what to install and where to install, make sure you are thinking of the look of the room too. For example, if you install light, glossy tiles, the space will look larger than it would if you were to install dark, matte-colored tiles.
