Tiny Bathroom – Make the Most of Your Limited Space
If you have a small bathroom, chances are the shower enclosure is very close to the toilet. That cramped space can make a full-scale remodelling and renovation project difficult, especially if you only have one bathroom in your home. Even so, you can still remodel your shower to make it a more efficient, less cramped space. A few simple and inexpensive touches can make a huge difference in the look of your bathtub and shower, even if you’re hampered by limited space.
Your bathroom is an important part of your home, and that means you want to make the most of the space you have available, no matter how limited. The right decorating touches can make a big difference for even the tiniest of bathrooms.
Assess What You Have
Before you can make any improvements or plan any renovations to your bathroom, you first need to take a good look at what you already have. Start by reviewing the existing decor of your bathroom, and your entire home. Make a list of the things you want to change, as well as the bathroom furnishings and accessories you like and want to keep in place. For instance, you might like the shower and bathtub enclosure itself but not the colour. You might also want to get some replacement toilet seats.
Cover that Unsightly Tub
If your existing bathtub is still structurally sound but has seen better days from a cosmetic stand point, you can simply cover it up instead of ripping up the bathroom and engaging in an expensive and time-consuming renovation project. You can also use the cover-up technique if you want to change the colour scheme of your bathroom.
Simply purchase a self-install tub covering product, or have one professionally installed. These products create a waterproof cover for your bathtub and shower, allowing you to change the entire colour scheme of the room without the hassle or expense of tearing out the old shower and putting in a new one.
Choose the Right Accessories
The right accessories can make a huge difference in the look, and even the practicality, of your small bathroom. Start by changing the accessories in the shower to match the new decor and design of the room. Adding an assortment of shelves in the shower to hold shampoos, soaps and other necessities can help as well, as can replacing your old toilet seats with new replacement toilet seats that match the new decor and colour of the room.
See Things More Clearly
You want your new bathroom to be practical as well as beautiful, and a new anti-fog mirror can serve both purposes. Add a no-fog mirror to your shower to make getting ready in the morning easier. You can find an assortment of mirrors designed for use in the shower at your local home improvement warehouse, and online as well.
Once these simple but effective renovations are in place, you may no longer care that your bathroom is small. In fact, you might find that your new cosy bathroom is now the most relaxing place in your home.
