How to Make a Small Half Bathroom Look Bigger

bathroom remodeling

Building the perfect bathroom can be difficult when the bathroom space in question happens to be on the small side. Alas, this is exactly the case for many homes around the world. Unfortunately, small bathrooms often lead to cramped-feeling experiences for residents of a home and guests alike and generally lead to design choices that favor function over beauty. Luckily, though, that doesn’t need to be the case. Learn how to make a bathroom look bigger, reflect your personal style, and offer as much form and function as possible to completely transform the space without blowing the bank on a full renovation.   Let Some Light In Letting in as much natural light as possible is the number one way to make any room in your home look larger, and small bathrooms are no exceptions. If your bathroom already has windows, consider leaving them unblocked so the room can benefit from the light. If privacy is an issue, consider using clear, frosted privacy window treatments instead of curtains or opaque treatments.  Keep Colors Simple Bright colors and busy patterns can be fun to look at in some cases but should be avoided when working with a cramped space. The combination of bright paint and patterns make a room feel busy, which, when paired with a small room size, leads to a design effect that can feel overwhelming. When possible, choose simple colors and try to keep the color uniform throughout your design choices.   Choose Light Colors Another way to…

 For decades, the image of relaxing in a tub surrounded by candles after a long day of work has been used to sell deep, luxurious tubs in houses of all shapes and sizes. However, when was the last time you happened to soak in a tub for hours on end? If you’re like millions of other adults, the odds are that you haven’t actually used your tub in months or even years. Over time, tubs have become obsolete to the average adult, and this is something you should keep in mind during your next bathroom remodel. No matter what your realtor has to say on the subject, it’s time to ditch your tub and get the bathroom you truly deserve. Here are some reasons why you should consider replacing your tub with a walk-in shower: 1. Maximize Your Space As concerns about efficiency and organization grow, people are beginning to realize that it’s crucial to maximize space in every part of your home. This is especially important when it comes to the bathroom, which, apart from closets, are often the smallest areas in any home. Tubs are by far the biggest space-grabbers in these rooms. The average tub takes 13 square feet of space, which can be a considerable amount in many modern bathrooms – almost half, in some cases. Most walk-in showers, on the other hand, only take up around 9 square feet of space, giving you far more room for storage, moving around, and even décor. Not…
