5 Tips for Remodeling a Small Bathroom, Ewa, Hawaii

A small bathroom presents unique challenges since you’ll need to maximize every square foot. Whether you’re creating a nice guest bathroom or a master bath you want to retreat to after a long day, you can still make it happen in a tiny space. Use the tips below to make that small space feel bigger with a smart bathroom design.

5 Bathroom Design Tips for a Small Space

1. Keep It Light

Light colors make a room look larger. Use lighter colors in your finishes with some pops of color or texture for visual interest. Plenty of natural light will also make a small space feel less confined; you can achieve this while maintaining privacy with high windows or skylights.

2. Install a Glass Showerbathroom design

A glass shower is ideal for a small bathroom design because it allows light to travel through and extends the line of sight upon entering the room. Use a seamless glass enclosure for the best result.

3. Splurge on Quality

One upside of having a small space is that you can get the highest quality finishes without breaking your budget. The bathroom will instantly feel luxurious when you get a beautifully crafted vanity or gorgeous flooring and tile for the shower.

4. Use a Pocket Door

A pocket door does not swing inward or outward; it moves sideways into the wall. This works well for small spaces and water closets since you won’t run into a door while moving around.

5. Install a Large Mirror

Mirrors instantly double the visual size of the space by reflecting the room back on itself. A large frameless mirror will add both drama and perceived square footage. If you place it opposite a light source like a window or fixture, it will make the room brighter and more cheerful.
