Do you wish your bathrooms were larger, but can’t find a way to increase your actual square footage? It's a common problem for many homeowners. Whether your home layout won't allow for an add-on, or it's just not feasible based on your budget, sometimes making your bathrooms larger just can't happen. If you're currently struggling with smaller bathrooms, there is hope; many homeowners have discovered that instead of adding on, bathroom remodeling proves an ideal option that can solve a slew of spacing dilemmas.
Key Factors To Increase Space During Your Bathroom Remodeling
Not convinced that bathroom remodeling will make your existing cramped space feel roomy? You just may be surprised at the results you can achieve by carefully considering a few key factors during the bathroom remodeling process. Working with a professional team of contractors can help you quickly and effectively implement several strategies to ensure that your finished bathroom remodeling project makes the area feel spacious and completely revitalized.
The first tip to maximizing space during your bathroom renovation project is to make natural lighting a top priority. Changing up the current windows in the room can help bring in more light and make the area feel bigger, all without having to add on to the amount of square footage that you have.
Step two in your plan for a more spacious and roomy bath area? Get rid of your shower curtain. Opaque shower curtains instantly narrow the area and makes it feel smaller than it actually is. A better alternative to tub drapery is glass. Include glass doors in your shower and you'll immediately feel like you have walked into a bigger space.
It's no secret that using wall mirrors to widen and lengthen spaces is a trick used in virtually every room in a house. The same holds true in your baths. Incorporating wall mirrors in your bathroom remodeling project can prove an easy and inexpensive way to visually broaden the area.
While we are on the subject of walls…it's important to consider the color you'll paint them at the completion of your bathroom remodeling. The paint color you choose can have a major impact on how big the area feels. Small and narrow rooms instantly feel smaller and narrower when painted in dark colors. Opting instead for pale, soft hues proves a perfect choice. Even choosing a light floor color can make the space seem grander.
Storage And Accent Features Are Also Important Considerations During Your Project
Of course, no bath renovation would be complete without including a storage strategy in the process. A great rule of thumb to maximize space available is to always leave your floor space open whenever possible. Hanging shelving units and even cabinets above the sink (instead of using a full vanity with underneath cabinetry) can help to deliver ample storage options.
Finally, various accent features can also make the room feel broader. Crown molding elongates the look of the wall length. Smaller, more petite fixtures and towel racks can streamline the look without taking up too much room. Finally, using pedestal sinks can enhance the flow of your final layout and maximize available floor space.
