Remodeling a Smaller Bathroom: Focal Point, Simplicity, Space

There are many rooms in your home you might consider remodeling, and one of the most common choices among homeowners today is the bathroom. What if the bathroom space you’re looking to remodel is on the smaller side? Never fear — there are numerous concepts or themes that are known to go well in smaller bathroom spaces.

At Crown Finish, our team of remodeling contractors will be happy to show you examples of our past work with not just bathroom remodeling, but with specific bathroom spaces similar to yours. What are some of the top suggestions we often make to clients looking for great ways to reimagine a smaller bathroom area? This two-part blog series will go over several.

Singular Focal Point

While some larger bathrooms may utilize multiple focal points, such as having a freestanding tub in one area and a large walk-in shower in another, it’s often best to stick with just one focal point in a smaller bathroom. This could be anything from an oversized medicine cabinet to a unique sink or even interesting tile work.

The important thing is that everything else in the room works to complement this singular focal point, rather than compete with it.

Simplicity is Key

In a similar vein, it’s important to remember that less is often more when working with a smaller bathroom space. This means avoiding too much clutter, sticking to a more simplified color palette and choosing slender fixtures where possible.

This isn’t to say that your smaller bathroom can’t still be stylish — on the contrary, a well-designed small bathroom can be extremely chic. It’s all about being strategic in your choices and working with what you have.

Space-Saving Fixtures

Modern bathroom fixture manufacturers are well aware of the fact that many bathrooms don’t have endless space to work with, and as such, they offer a wide variety of space-saving fixtures. For instance, rather than a bulky bathtub that takes up a large portion of the room, you may want to opt for a smaller tub or even a shower stall.

There are also plenty of slimmed down sink and toilet options on the market that can help give your bathroom the illusion of more space. Many of these will also be modern, low-flush toilets that use less water, which is great for both your utility bills and the environment.

Tubs and toilets aren’t the only fixtures where space-saving options are available, either. If you have limited counter space, consider a pedestal sink or even wall-mounted faucets and towel racks.

In part two of our series, we’ll go over a few more great ideas for remodeling a smaller bathroom. Stay tuned! In the meantime, if you’re interested in learning more about our bathroom remodeling services or scheduling a consultation, don’t hesitate to contact Crown Finish today.
