If you are about to undergo a small bathroom renovation, you have a lot to think about. You want the best use of the space you have, but you probably have budget or construction constraints that limit how much you can change the floor plan. The good news is that you can often increase the feeling of the space without making changes to the floor plan.
If you will be replacing fixtures,you may want to resist the urge to choose a color other than white. Color trends come and go, but white is timeless. We all know that an avocado green kitchen was last renovated in the 1970’s. Don’t let your color choice shout out the date of your last small bathroom renovation
White is neutral, so you can indulge your love of color in other areas of the room without worrying about clashing. Have the walls painted a beautiful color that you love. You can always repaint when you get tired of it. If the space is very small, you may want to select a light color for the main walls so the room will feel larger.
A great way to make a small bathroom feel larger is to select one wall and paint it with a darker accent color. This makes the wall appear to recede, so the room will appear larger.
Add mirrors wherever you can. Mirrors aren’t just for applying makeup and brushing your hair, they reflect light and make the room look brighter and feel larger. Selecting a mirrored cabinet will provide 2 benefits – lots of storage and a feeling of openness.
