Considerations of Remodeling Smaller Bathrooms
Remodeling small bathrooms (or bathrooms of odd shapes) bring challenges not found when remodeling larger bathrooms. Primarily this is because of the smaller space available.
This is where the phrase “Life is an endless series of tradeoffs” seem to be the most true.
First and foremost the layout of the room needs more attention because each square inch counts more. There is less space available for everything: fixtures, storage, the tub, the shower, etc, etc.
I recommend when remodeling small bathrooms much more attention is placed on possible layouts and more layout options are considered.
Fixture Styles and Storage
A pedestal sink vs a vanity with a countertop and sink. One takes up much less space, but then has storage issues.
When working in smaller bathroom more open things allow the available space to be seen, which causes the room to feel larger. As an example the image for this post shows a wall mount corner mount sink with an open shelving unit underneath.
The corner sink is a good use of space in a small room, and the open storage makes the room feel larger because less stuff protrudes into it (such as the vanity).
Decorations, Specifically Stripes
It’s probably not a coincidence the bathroom in the image is decorated with stripes. Stripes create an optical illusion of elongating space. For this featured bathroom the room will feel taller than it actually is. The same use of stripes can be used to make a room feel deeper or wider, depending on how you run the stripes.
