How to Remodel a Small Bathroom.

Measure the Area

Before planning for your remodel, it’s essential to take accurate measurements of the space. This will help you decide on any changes that need to be made, such as repositioning fixtures or changing layout plans.

Consider Storage Solutions

Making the best use of your space is essential when remodeling a small bathroom. Look for creative storage solutions such as floating shelves or wall-mounted cabinets to help keep your countertops and floors clutter-free. Consider a floating vanity with drawers, which will not take up to much space

Pick the Right Colours and Materials for Your Space

Choosing colours and materials that both look good and make the room feel larger is important. For example, light colours will help make a small bathroom look more open and airier, while you can use darker shades to add a bold statement.

Selecting Fixtures

Before deciding on a shower or tub faucets, test the water pressure. Most suppliers have an area in their showroom to do this. A wall hung toilet is a great option as it is compact and does not take up to much space.

When selecting a tub, be sure to sit in it, to ensure it is comfortable when taking a bath. A sleek alcove tub is a great space saver.


Wall tiles is the area where you can express your design. Choose tiles that fit the overall theme of the bathroom. For example if you are going modern, oversized tiles are the way to go, whereas subway tiles give a more traditional look.

Another thing to consider is maintenance. Larger tiles have less grout lines, so this means the tiles are easier to clean. The material of the tile is very important. Marble tiles are porous and need to be sealed. Porcelain tiles are very easy to maintain.

How Can I Add More Simple Storage to a Bathroom?

Adding storage to small bathrooms can be tricky but not impossible! A wonderful way to add storage to a bathroom without taking up too much room is installing floating shelves or if there is space inside of the wall, install a recessed medicine cabinet.
