4 Essential Remodeling Tips for Small Bathrooms, Dayton, Ohio

Remodeling your home can be a fun but challenging task. Including the right features when you’re limited on space can make or break a room. When renovating a small bathroom, it’s important to make it feel cozy and elegant rather than cramped. Use the following bathroom remodeling tips to make the most of a compact space. 

How to Successfully Remodel a Small Bathroom

1. Choose Light Colors

Dark or contrasting wall colors usually make a space feel smaller than it is. Light colors, like icy blue and soft gray, will help your bathroom feel more open and spacious. Blend or match the color of the walls and floor tile so the corners and distinct boundaries are less obvious. Keep the trim, cabinetry, and ceiling white, and save bold colors for accessories such as towels, shower curtains, and pictures.

2. Opt for Glass Shower Doors

Unless someone in your household requires a bathtub, consider getting a standing shower to provide more room for other features, like storage. 

3. Install a Large Mirror 

Every bathroom needs a mirror above the sink. According to bathroom remodeling experts, the smaller your bathroom is, the larger the mirror should be. This feature will bounce light around the space, making it seem brighter and more open. Consider installing a mirrored medicine cabinet to lighten the room as much as possible. 

4. Embrace Height

Keeping the crown molding narrow and bringing the shower tiles up to the ceiling will create the illusion of height. Chandeliers and other hanging light fixtures add to the feeling of crampedness. Instead, choose recessed lighting and wall sconces.
