So you want to remodel your small bathroom. Ask anyone you know, and it’s likely you will receive several patented pieces of advice: tried and true gems like, stick with a clean white color palette, it will keep the space feeling airy and bright, or opt for a small pedestal sink instead of that amazing vanity you saw in that magazine to better utilize the space. And while white is a classic, clean choice for your walls, and small pedestal sinks can utilize a space well, the truth is that when redesigning a space the only limit is your imagination.
Be bold: Color outside the lines.
Small spaces, like bathrooms and powder rooms, tend to get a bad rap. Because of the limited space, some might assume that color patterns and designs are also limited. But we’re glad to say, that just isn’t so. These small spaces are the perfect place to be bold. Saturated shades like deep red, royal purple, or even black can lend a space depth and a dramatic style. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, try painting vertical stripes or use a moisture-resistant wallpaper to draw the eye upward.
Vanities: Fuse function and style.
Vanities are an important part of any bathroom. They are a natural focal point and are often the only piece of furniture in a small bathroom. If you are looking for more space but don’t want to sacrifice style, try a floating vanity. They take up less visual space but still provide storage–it’s the perfect blend of function and style! Another creative option for small bathrooms is the timeless furniture-style vanity. These come in many styles and finishes to suit various spaces and decors.
Shelves: Solving the storage shortage.
Finding ways to add storage to small bathrooms can be a challenging adventure. Free wall space provides one path in the quest for more storage space. Floating shelves over the toilet or beside the sink can provide much-needed relief to cluttered counters. No room for towel racks? Install them on the backside of the door. And if you want to really utilize your vertical space, you can even install a shelf above the doorway.
Remember, your small bathroom is more than white walls and tiny sinks. It is a blank canvas ready for your own unique style and tastes. Contact VIP Home Remodeling and let us help you design your perfect bathroom today.
