Small Bath Remodeling Ideas


Small bathrooms can create a remodeling problem. You might not want to remodel your entire bathroom, but instead would like to create more space without having to tear apart your walls and flooring. Remodeling your bathroom may entail replacing fixtures or replacing your bathtub, depending upon your personal preferences.


  • Accentuate the natural light in a small bathroom by installing a skylight to bring in more natural light. This will maximize the appeal of your bathroom. If your bathroom walls slant, install two skylights, one on each side of the bathroom. Try shades of aqua and white in your small bathroom to enhance the bathroom's atmosphere with the natural light.


  • Remove your current sink and replace it with a bowl sink sitting on top of a cabinet. Tile the backsplash in a light color---white, for example. Allow the most counter space by installing a wall-mounted faucet above your bowl sink. This remodel will add a modern touch to your small bathroom. As another plus, the cabinet also doubles as storage.


  • Replace your bathroom mirror with a larger mirror. A large mirror will reflect the entire bathroom, thus making the space feel much larger and roomier. You may also use a variety of smaller mirrors throughout your bathroom to enhance the illusion that the bathroom has more space. For an added illusion, replace your bathroom shower door with a mirrored shower door.


  • Details will make or break a small bathroom. Purchase matching towel racks, toilet paper holder and wastebasket. These items will complete a small bathroom.


  • Light-colored paint makes a small room appear larger. When deciding how to remodel your small bathroom, consider painting the walls a light color, such as white, pale blue or pale yellow. You can purchase paint inexpensively and yet make a dramatic change to your bathroom by painting the walls.


  • Replace your current bathtub with a smaller one or even a corner bathtub. This will ensure that you have maximized the available floor space. Even a few feet or inches will make a difference in a small bathroom. You also can purchase a bathtub with specific specifications.You may want to consult a professional when replacing or relocating your bathtub.


  • If your home has an old rounded toilet, consider replacing it with a much sleeker, smaller toilet. Toilets take up a lot of floor space in a bathroom. Before replacing your toilet, measure the toilet flange to ensure the replacement toilet will fit. If the replacement toilet flange is too large, you will run into complications.
