5 Tips For Making The Most Of Your Small Bathroom

If you have a small bathroom, you don't have to give up on creating a luxurious space. You can have a classy and enjoyable bathroom even with a tiny space. Here are a few tips to maximize the small space in your bathroom.

Install a Smaller Tub

You don't really need a full-size tub in your bathroom. When you sit in the tub, you more than likely sit upright, so a smaller tub, such as a 5-foot tub, can get the job done. You can add a nice showerhead and have a space to soak and shower without taking up as much space as you would with a full-sized tub and shower combination.

Make Use of Corners

You are going to want to make use of the corner space in your bathroom. A corner sink is a great way to use up the limited space that you have. A corner vanity allows you to put a mirror, sink, and even a little storage in a space that you might not normally use, opening up the area.

Consider a Frameless Glass Shower

If you have a tub elsewhere in your home, you can get rid of the tub entirely and add a frameless glass shower. A frameless glass shower can make space feel even more open by allowing light to flow between the shower area and the rest of the bathroom. Additionally, a frameless shower doesn't have a big lip on the bottom, making it easier to get in and out of if you have mobility issues.

Think About Wall Mounting

Another way to save space in a small bathroom is to go for wall-mounted features. For example, if you don't want a vanity, you can go for a wall-mounted sink, which will help to open up a lot of space in your bathroom.

Or you can go for a wall-mounted toilet, which will allow the toilet to sit right up against the wall. This will also help to really open up your space and add a little bit of square footage. With a wall-mounted toilet, you will have to mount the water tank above the toilet or inside the wall. 

Consider a Medicine Cabinet

If you go with a wall-mounted sink or a really small vanity, you can always get some storage space back by using a medicine cabinet for your mirror. With a medicine cabinet, you will have the space you need to store a variety of bathroom items without taking up that much space. You can even place two wall-mounted medicine cabinets side-by-side for double the mirrors and double the storage space.

With a small bathroom, it is all about thinking outside the box. Consider some of these tips for your bathroom remodeling to maximize your space.
