Bathroom Remodeling Ideas for Small Spaces

Posted in Bathrooms

Remodeling is a lot like Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Some spaces are too big. Others are too small. Then there are those that are "just right." The good news is that if your space isn't in that sweet spot, you can still be creative and achieve a remodel you'll love.

Small bathrooms, for example, can still feel like a relaxing retreat. Here are some ideas for remodeling your bathroom when you have limited space.

1. Remove the Bathtub

Both a bathtub and a shower in a small space can make it cramped in a hurry. If that's the case for you, decide first whether a bathtub even makes sense for your situation. Do you use it? Do you have small children or babies? Could you utilize the space your bathtub occupies? Whether you get a shower conversion (more on that in a bit) or simply remove the bathtub, this is one way to maximize your space.

2. Replace the Bathtub

The type of bathtub could also contribute to the lack of space. A jacuzzi tub or standalone bathtub, for example, will often take up more space than a traditional bath or bathtub-shower combination. By replacing your oversized bathtub with a slimmer model, you can potential gain a few extra square feet in your bathroom for other use.

3. Convert the Shower

If you have a bathtub and shower, why not combine them? You have several conversion options when it comes to your shower, such as a tub-to-shower conversion. A barrier-free shower can also make your space appear bigger than it really is and there are multiple versions of these (e.g., walk-in showers, roll-in showers, etc.). Custom showers are yet another option you can consider for your small bathroom.

4. Consider Alternative Storage Solutions

If your bathroom remodeling design doesn't involve the bathtub or shower, its storage options are another factor. Do you have bulky furniture or sinks taking up unnecessary space? From over-the-toilet cabinets to smaller vanities, there are alternative storage solutions for bathrooms that still meet your needs but take up less space.

5. Consult with a Pro

Consulting with bathroom remodeling contractors and companies like Expo Home Improvement is another great idea for your bathroom remodel.
