Bathrooms renovations can be extremely tricky, especially if you are trying to create more space in a room that currently seems really small. However, there are many things that you can do to maximize this space during your bathroom remodel.
Here are 5 tips to maximize your bathroom’s layout during renovations:
Create Storage Anywhere You Can
As you are creating the design for your bathroom remodel, you are going to want to incorporate storage wherever you can, because that is the one thing that is always needed the most in this space. You can choose to install open shelves on the walls or consider installing a vanity with a cabinet underneath to really maximize your bathroom space.
Add Natural Light
Natural light can really open up a room and make it appear larger than it really is. We recommend installing a skylight if possible, so you have continuous light shining down into your new bathroom.
Reflect with a Mirror
During your bathroom renovations, you are going to need to find a few ways to add to the space for décor, and we recommend making sure that a mirror is at the top of your list. Not only will the mirror help as you are getting ready in the morning, it will also help create the illusion that your bathroom is larger than it is. While most people place their mirror over their vanity, there is nothing wrong with having a couple mirrors in this room to really open things up.
A niche is a little indentation in the wall that allows you to store items that you want to keep in your bathroom. These niches can be located in your shower, next to your bathtub, or even in the wall above your toilet. The possibilities are endless and so are the items that you can place inside them.
Install Glass Shower Doors
A shower curtain will quickly make your bathroom look smaller than it is, which is why we recommend installing glass shower doors when you are completing your bathroom renovations. The glass doors will allow your eyes to travel the entire length of the room, while making it feel open and airy.
There are many times when changing the layout during bathroom renovations is not completely possible, but there are plenty of ways that you can improve the layout that you have. The above tips should help you maximize what you have to work with, and we know that if you think out of the box a little, you will find even more options as well.
