Space-Saving Ideas For Remodeling A Tiny Bathroom

Posted on: 23 February 2016

Looking to update your bathroom but aren't sure how to maximize the small amount of square footage? If expanding the size of your bathroom isn't an option (either financially or logistically), the good news is that there are still some ways to modernize your bathroom and make it more functional, regardless of size. Specifically, these space-saving ideas are great for even the tiniest of bathrooms.

A Corner Vanity

Rather than having a large vanity smack-dab in the middle of your bathroom, why not invest in a corner vanity? These vanities are designed to be installed in any corner of your bathroom, thus saving precious floor space without you having to make any sacrifices in terms of aesthetics or function. Alternatively, if you're updating a powder room or a guest bathroom where you don't need a lot of vanity storage, you might consider saving floor space by installing a small pedestal sink or wall-mounted sink instead.

Shower Conversion

If the bathroom you're remodeling currently has a shower and tub separate from each other or a shower/tub combination, take a moment to consider how often you use a tub versus a shower. If you're the type of person who never takes baths, then it might make more sense to get rid of that tub or convert that tub/shower combination into a luxurious walk-in shower. Even a small walk-in shower can feel spa-like when decked out with fancy shower heads and decorative tile. Plus, you'll save on square footage in your bathroom at the same time.

Built-In Shelving

One of the biggest complaints homeowners have when it comes to small bathrooms is that they simply don't have enough storage space. Unfortunately, maximizing storage can be a challenge without taking up more square footage in the process. Still, it can be done. The key is to implement built-in storage or shelving within the bathroom itself. For example, above the toilet can be a great place to install a wall-mounted shelving unit. This can be the perfect place to store fresh towels, wash cloths, and other essentials without taking up any additional floor space.

These are just a few possible ideas for maximizing space and functionality while updating a small bathroom. By keeping these tips in mind as you plan your upcoming bathroom remodel, you can add style and value to your home while also enjoying that luxurious, spa-like bathroom retreat that you've always wanted.
