The most important advice I can give someone that is about to take on a bathroom renovation is to hire a professional contractor that specializes in bathroom remodeling. They are able to offer their clients a list of services that help to cater to their unique renovation needs. Hiring a professional contractor is an intelligent choice when looking into any remodeling project within your home especially one that deals with both plumbing and electricity changes.
One thing that can help smaller bathrooms appear larger is lighting. The trick to bathroom lighting is to use bright opulent lighting. Using dim lighting in a small space makes that space appear smaller. Another option to look at when considering the lighting in a smaller bathroom is the light fixture itself. Hanging light fixtures take up space that is much needed within the bathroom whereas recessed lighting doesn't take up any valuable area.
Use color wisely when remodeling a smaller bathroom. Using dark colors will make the space appear much smaller than it is. In order to get as much out of the space as possible choose to paint the walls a light color, use lighter toned tile for the floor, back splash and shower surround. Another thing to keep in mind is the size of the tiles that you use within the room. Tiles that are too small or too large will create too much distraction in the space. Consider a medium size tile for the bathroom when remodeling a smaller space.
Clutter is another issue for bathrooms. When remodeling look into adding functional storage throughout the entire space. Using open cupboards along with wicker baskets is just one way to keep your clutter within arm’s reach while keeping it hidden. The space above the toilet is often forgotten. That space is perfect for the addition of extra storage. Consider adding in a cupboard or multiple shelves. Choose colorful glass and containers to store necessities such as q - tips, toothpaste and everything that is needed on a daily basis on the shelves. This keeps the clutter organized neatly while also allowing it to be where it is needed most.
Mirrors are a necessity in every bathroom space. Using a wall mirror will give double the visual space in your bathroom. Simply by reflecting off of the space in equal measure will trick the eye. Although there will not physically be more space it will appear as if there is.
Simple tricks that help create space where there is none help turn smaller bathrooms into a luxurious room within your home. Remodeling the bathrooms in your home is also a sure way to increase the equity within your home.
