Renovating A 'Small Bathroom'

Renovating A Small Bathroom

Tips to make your bathroom a more practical space


While the definition of small may range from person to person often home owners complain that they wish they had an additional full bath/half bath and that their bathroom is to small to function as that. However ‘small bathrooms’ can be made to work as a half bath or full bathroom with the proper layout and renovation. Having an additional bathroom will increase your homes sale ability and will make it more appealing to future potential buyers.





While thinking about tackling your bathroom look at the existing layout. Is there anything which immediately attracts your attention because its to big? If the unit is not necessary have it removed and focus on using that space allocated for a new fixture.




Here are a few simple tips on how to make your small bathroom into a more functional half bath or full bath;

  • If you have a linen closet within close proximity to the bathroom we recommend the following;
    • Use the linen closet for bathroom storage
    • Focus on using a pedestal sink as opposed to a standard vanity. This will make the room appear more open
  • Although big windows are very nice – work the windows around the contents of the room so you are able to fit more
  • Corner shower unit
    • A corner shower unit allows for more space within the room
    • Easier to install and less expensive
  • Have your fixtures run along one wall for use of space, and to make plumbing less expensive
  • Look at how your door swings open?
    • Consider having the door re-hinged. A door can take up to 25% of the room, re hinge it into the hall way to make your bathroom more functional
  • Flooring
    • Focus on light flooring
    • Lay tiles diagonally, creates an illusion of a longer room
  • Paint tones
    • Focus on neutral paint tones with light accents to make the room feel more open and spacious
  • Trim/Molding
    • Make sure the trim and molding on the walls and proportionate to the size of the room. In a smaller room having excessive trim or molding can take away from the room itself as ceiling height appears narrower.
  • Shelving and storage
    • If an option have shelving and storage units built into the wall between dry wall studs- very useful and takes up zero floor space
  • Lighting
    • Focus on using simple accent light fixtures, nothing over bearing
    • Use of wall sconce’s can create added light and is a nice decorative piece
