In many properties, the bathroom can be the smallest room in the home. But that doesn’t mean it can’t look amazing. As the leading provider of bathroom makeovers in Bucks County, we transform old bathrooms into stunning spaces all year round.
Below, we’ve shared some tips on affordable ways to improve your small bathroom area while utilizing the available space.
When it Comes to Shower Curtains…
Shower curtains are great because they can save space compared to having a glass door installed around your shower area. Some tubs are as little as 60 inches in length, so shower-tub combinations coupled with shower curtains are the way to go when it comes to making the most of space in a smaller bathroom.
Consider a Sliding Door
Another way to save space in a small bathroom is to opt for a sliding door as opposed to one that swings into the bathroom space. Not only will this save room, but it will also add some decorative flair to your property.
Decorate With Large Scale Patterns
Large-scale patterns, such as wide stripes, can create the illusion of an expanded space to the human eye. Although your bathroom’s square footage will stay the same, the bathroom will look and feel more spacious.
Use Natural Light to Your Advantage
Never block any windows, and place mirrors strategically around the bathroom to further create an illusion of abundant space. The mirrors reflecting the natural light will create an airy and spacious atmosphere inside your bathroom. This is an affordable way to make the room feel more appealing and less cramped.
Mount the Towel Bar on the Back of the Door
When there is little space within a bathroom, mounting a towel bar on the shower door is a way to keep towels handy while saving space. If necessary, store the majority of your towels in another room or a linen basket, leaving one close by on the handrail with which to dry off.
Install a Trough Style Sink
Trough sinks are narrow and use clean styling that looks good and helps to free up space. These sink models have a low profile, and when they are wall mounted, they free up floor space for foot traffic and storage.
