Renovating your bathroom is an exciting project, but it can be overwhelming if you don’t know where to start. Bathroom renovations are an excellent way to add more storage, make the space more functional or completely change its look and feel. Bring us your bathroom remodeling ideas and we will make them a reality. If you are in need of a bathroom makeover, these are 7 excellent ideas to help you get started.
Location of Shower is Important
One of the best bathroom remodel ideas is moving the location of your shower. A small bathroom will seem even smaller if the shower and tub is taking up most of the space.
Relocating the tub and shower can give you much needed space for a vanity and open up the floor space. This will give you the feeling of more usable space and help with your storage needs.
You don’t want to have the door open and hit your tub or shower stall. Consider moving these towards the back of the bathroom to create some additional space. It can also make the room seem much less cramped.
Open Up Space
A small bathroom can oftentimes feel very cramped and uncomfortable. If you decide to remove the bathtub and replace it with a shower instead, it will give you much more space. If the room is dark, choose light colours to open up the space and provide the illusion of more space.
Move any major features like the bathtub or sink to the back of the bathroom to give yourself more room. This opens up the space for more storage and will give the whole space a feeling of openness.
Moving storage up or underneath will also help to make the space appear less cramped. A small dark room may need a window to allow in some natural light and some fresh air.
Consider a Double Vanity
Another popular idea for a bathroom renovation is to replace your single sink with a double sink vanity. This allows two people to get ready at the same time which saves time and looks great too.
A double vanity can also provide more counter space and more storage. Whether you get drawers or cabinets, or both, you double the storage space when you add another sink.
Old, dull and damaged floors in your bathroom can make the entire room look dingy. If you are already renovating your bathroom, don’t forget about the floors.
Get new tiles that will mix and match with the wall tiles, your tub and sink, or any accents you are adding. You can also consider heated floors for those cold mornings and late-night visits.
Incorporate Built-In Shelves
As storage is often an issue in most bathrooms, why not consider built-in shelves for your bathroom makeover? They look great and don’t take up any extra space. This way, they don’t take up any extra wall space and that leaves that open for decor or other features. With built-in shelves, the bathroom will appear to be bigger and they can be custom-made to suit your needs.
Custom-made shelves can be built just how you like them. It’s important to keep the theme of your bathroom in mind when building these shelving units. If you add them to the shower, you can easily access all of your bathroom essentials.
Incorporate Crown Moulding
Crown moulding adds just the right of style and personality to a bathroom. This opens up possibilities for design ideas and adds to your home’s overall value. Crown moulding is a relatively low cost addition for a great look.
Crown moulding can make your room appear to have more depth by breaking up the walls and ceiling. They are also great for hiding small imperfections on your walls or ceiling, particularly in older homes.
Add Extra Storage
Storage is often a problem, especially for smaller bathrooms. Adding shelves or hooks higher up on the wall will keep the floor space open and utilize the wall space.
Vanities can be raised to allow for storage underneath, add a small open dresser with baskets to hold your items, and install a corner shelf to use up unused space with a touch of style and class.
