Unlike custom kitchen remodeling or any other home improvement project, bathroom renovation has to work within the confines of a usually limited space. Of course, some homes will have much more floor area to work with but in most cases, homeowners and designers must find a way to put everything in what is typically the smallest room in a house.
With years of experience in design and remodeling, our experts at The Kitchen Store has a few important tips and tricks that can help you maximize your bathroom remodel.
Avoid Bathroom Fixtures That Stick Out a Wall
While it’s tempting to use the wall space for storage and cabinetry, our cabinet refacing expert advises against such additions. The vertical space in a narrow bathroom defines how freely a person can move in three dimensions. Objects that stick out of a wall can put obstacles to a user’s movement so consider replacing them with built-in shelves or, if possible, store extraneous items outside your bathroom instead.
Use Visual Cues to Expand the Space
There is an art technique called trompe l’oeil that uses optical illusions to make small spaces appear much bigger. You can use this to your advantage by painting sky scenes in the ceiling of your bathroom, making it look like there’s more space than there actually is. You can also use clear shower doors or curtains to allow the eyes to extend to the far end of the room instead of being stopped right in the middle. You can also free up more space by choosing the smallest possible bathroom vanity for your own comfort.
