A remodel in any part of your home can be frustrating, especially if you’re not quite sure what to do with it. The design options are potentially limitless if you can figure out a way to achieve them. However, if you’re unsure of how to go about tackling a certain project then things can get complicated.
A remodel without a plan is a remodel that takes twice as long to finish. The best thing you can do in any remodel situation is to plan first and then execute with contingency plans in place for the surprises. If you’re stuck on what you want to do with your bathroom design, for instance, gather some ideas ahead of time before you start the demo. There are several options such as a retro bathroom, or a spa bathroom. You’ll just need to decide ahead of time. This is especially true for smaller bathrooms, since you’ll have less space to work with.
There are ways to increase the spacial feel of your bathroom, and reaching out to a contractor or renovation company would be a good call to make. If you want to try some DIY bathroom remodeling ideas to make your bathroom feel bigger, then here are some tips for you to try out.
- Clean Walls: Take down anything protruding from the walls like towel racks or shelving. Not only will this create actual space, it will add to the overall feeling.
- Clear Shower Enclosures: Adding clear walls to your shower can be a great way to increase the perceived capacity of your bathroom. The transparent barriers add visual space even though it doesn’t really exist. Semitransparent or translucent shower enclosures may also work but will not be nearly as effective. In addition, the majority of homeowners (79%) prefer glass shower enclosures.
- Small Vanity: Even though it can be a sacrifice, choosing a smaller vanity is a good idea for those cramped bathrooms. This is one of those bathroom ideas that can be a double-edged sword; your bathroom feels bigger but you lose counter space. If it’s a guest bathroom or half-bath, then a small vanity probably wouldn’t be too much of a compromise.
