Bathrooms are one of the most important rooms of any Tampa home. The average person goes 6 times a day which adds up to 1.5 years in a lifetime. You deserve to spend 1.5 years of your life in a restroom you love, but bathroom remodeling can be tough if the size of your space is small. Follow these tips to fall in love with your toilet again.
Colors and Lighting
Bathrooms are a design space of infinite possibility, but infinite possibilities will not make your tiny room bigger. Stick with colors or wallpapers that are solid and versatile. Bold or gaudy design elements can overpower an area and make it feel smaller. The same applies to lighting choices and fixtures. That big chandelier might look good in a magazine, but big elements will fill up a tiny room.
Shelving and Storage
Shelving is an important part of your bathroom remodeling project. Place all grounded cabinets and drawers in a corner or reserve the area under the sink to make use of all available room. Consider using floating storage (fixtures that are attached directly to the wall) to free up floor space and keep everything at a reachable level.
Sinks can often take up a large portion of a wall and choosing the right sink depends on the other spa elements you plan on including. Trying to fit a large sink and a large shower or bathtub into the same area will fill it entirely. Opt for a compact sink like a pedestal sink or even a wall-mounted sink with a smaller faucet. This will free large amounts of space and will give you the ability to include fixtures you deem more important.
Showers and Tubs
Before you start anything, consider whether you absolutely need of a full tub or if a shower would do just fine. Barrier-free showers or low-walled tubs are an easy way to free space quickly. Glass shower doors or glass sliding doors will allow light and visibility throughout the room, opening it up.
Rearranging the space to your liking is possible without too much disruption to your daily life. So, if you are want to start planning your bathroom remodeling, contact the trusted experts at Greaves Construction at (813) 985-2739 and spend your 1.5 years in luxury!
