Small bathrooms often feel cramped and difficult to change into an attractive and inviting area. Transforming yours doesn’t have to be difficult though. Follow these simple steps to turn your small bathroom into a spa oasis that you can enjoy today.
Consider replacing your bathtub with a shower. Stand alone showers will always take up much less space than a traditional size tub, and many individuals find that they prefer them. Consider removing your tub and instead, installing a glass enclosed shower, with seamless doors and a tile back splash. You can also add glass block mirrors around the shower to further give the illusion of space. This is an effective way to update your bathroom, and create the appearance of a larger room.
Install a large mirror. This simple trick might just make your bathroom appear to be twice the size. Many decorative mirrors are available at your local design store, so pick one that fits your style. Install the mirror right above your sink, or in place of a larger picture in your bathroom. The reflection off the mirror will give the appearance of an increased space, and the decorative factor will add elegance to your room.
Consider a wall-hung toilet to increase space. Wall hung toilets take up much less space than traditional models, and they offer a modern and updated appearance to any bathroom. The concealed tank is slim, plastic, and supported by a metal frame that fits in the cavity of a 2×6 stud wall. The frame also supports the bowl, which does not rest on the floor. These toilets are quieter than those with exposed tanks, but the biggest advantages come from having the bowl mounted on the wall: It takes up less space in the bathroom and makes it easy to keep the floor clean
