Making everything fit in a small bathroom is like doing a giant crossword puzzle. You have to configure the toilet and sink while allowing enough clearance for a shower and a storage area for linens and other bathroom essentials. Despite the challenges, it’s still better to squeeze in an extra bathroom, even if it’s small.
Here are some tips from a master bathroom remodeling company.
Install a Corner Sink
Sometimes even a pedestal sink can block the only available passageway in a bathroom. In this case, consider placing a corner sink across from the toilet rather than across from the shower. Thus, you avoid a tight walk-around situation when opening and closing the shower door.
Float the Vanity
Mounting a vanity above the floor helps to make the bathroom appear bigger. It also frees up a little space for small items. Tight spaces can make sharp corners hip hazards. If the sharp corners of a vanity would get in the way, choose a rounded style. A round vanity can work as well in a square space.
Extend the Counter Over the Toilet
Use a stone or a wood slab for this banjo-style arrangement. The extended counter offers room for a few needed items. Furthermore, the toilet area is not affected, and the look is minimal and clean. Consult a whole house remodeling contractor for great ideas on space usage.
Use a Large-Scale Pattern and Expand the Mirror
Large stripes on walls and curtains trick the eye into seeing expanded space. The square footage stays the same, but the bathroom feels bigger. In the tightest spaces, a mirror stretched across the wall enables two people to use the vanity at the same time. In such space conditions, every inch helps.
Skip the Shower Door
If your bathroom is about five feet wide, you only have enough room for a toilet and a 30-by-60-inch tub. With such a tight condition, consider a glass panel instead of a glass shower door. It will hold most of the water in the shower and will free up needed elbow room. Choose from our bathroom shower designs.
