Remodeling a Smaller Bathroom: Minimalism, Flooring, Lighting

In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some basic concepts to consider if you’re remodeling a bathroom that’s limited in overall space. It’s easily possible to remodel a smaller bathroom with some excellent features, as long as you have the proper planning and research in place before you do so.

At Crown Finish, we’re proud to offer remodeling contractor services for a wide range of areas of any home, including bathrooms. What are some other general tips we often pass on to clients who are looking to remodel a bathroom without a ton of space involved? Here are several.

Ideal for Minimalists

If you happen to be a minimalist, or if you’re looking for ways to create a minimalistic bathroom design, one thing that can help is planning the size of your bathroom around the visual aesthetic. For example, if you want to install a large sink and counter space in your bathroom but don’t have enough room for them without creating an inefficient layout, you may want to select a smaller sink and countertop than what you would have chosen otherwise.

You can still create a desirable, minimalistic room while taking up less space; it’s all about planning ahead of time which features you want to include in your bathroom that will truly benefit the overall look without making the remodel unnecessarily large or bulky.

Flooring Considerations

It’s an old adage in various areas of home remodeling: When it comes to perceptions of the size of a given room, flooring can make all the difference. If you’re looking to create a sense of visual space in your bathroom, whether it’s a minor remodel or a major one, consider installing light-colored flooring options such as light gray tile.

You’ll not only be able to get away with a smaller amount of space for the same if not greater functionality, but you’ll also be able to establish a sense of visual flow throughout the entire room.

Utilize Light Fixtures

Light fixtures are another element that can completely alter the ambiance and size of your bathroom, particularly if they happen to be large or bright. If you have a limited amount of space within your bathroom, consider using light fixtures that offer a smaller scale and design, or alternatively ones with an adjustable direction so you can get the light exactly where you need it.
