How to Maximize Space in a Small Bathroom
April 21, 2017
Small bathrooms can provide a unique challenge to homeowners. Having an organized bathroom can save you time in the morning getting ready for work, and save your sanity when it’s time to clean. Organization can be a challenge, however, when you are working in a small space. Having the right organizational tools in place can make all the difference in a small bathroom, saving your time and frustration.
Finding storage solutions that work with your small space can be a lifesaver in a small bathroom. Utilizing wall space can make a huge difference in bathroom organization if counter and drawer space is limited. Wall mounted medicine cabinets can make a big impact on your limited counter space, creating an organized solution for bottles, toiletries, etc. Another good option in a small space is a storage cabinet over the toilet. Whether you want to install a cabinet to the wall, or use one that is freestanding, the options are endless. Using a cabinet behind the toilet eliminates wasted space and gives you a place to store things like towels, washcloths and other toiletries.
Rethinking the Sink and Shower
If your small bathroom has a large vanity that takes up valuable space, it may be time for a remodel. Not all vanities work in a small space, having a smaller, yet organized vanity can save you space while also helping with storage solutions. Likewise, if your shower or tub takes up too much room, replacing it with a smaller unit can give you back some much needed floor and wall space.
Creating the Illusion of a Larger Space
In addition to making your space more functional, you may also want to make it feel more spacious and open. Replacing your traditional shower and curtain with one that has a glass enclosure can create an open feeling and the illusion of space. Another inexpensive way to make your space feel bigger is to change the paint color. Lighter colors will make the room feel bigger and more open, while darker colors will make it feel smaller. Likewise, good lighting can help make a small room feel bigger, especially natural light if you have a window available.
