The small bathrooms in many apartments pose a challenge when it comes to remodeling them to include optimal functionality and attractive ambiance. The reason for this is that all the necessary bathroom features and amenities must fit into the room in a space-conserving fashion. If you include these in the wrong manner, your tiny bathroom will look and feel cramped. On the other hand, when you take the correct approach, you can create an illusion of space in your limited bathroom area.
Think Light and Bright with Colours
For the main décor shades, think light and bright colours. These will help the room appear larger than it is in reality. This holds true with paint and stain as well as wall and floor tiling or other material options. You can add dark colours for accents if you so desire.
Install a Shower Instead of a Tub
You might want to opt for a shower in place of a tub with a small bathroom since you can customise one to your available space a bit easier than you can a bathtub. Add a shower chair to help you relax while showering or wash your feet comfortably.
Choose Sleek, Modern Vanities and Fixtures
Most of the time you only have room for a single-sink vanity in a small apartment bathroom. Cabinetry of this vanity should be sleek, minimalist in design as should all of the plumbing fixtures, including the toilet. The only exception to the latter is the shower head. You can splurge and install an oversized one if you wish since it requires no floor space.
Use the Walls for Storage to Conserve Floor Space
Install shelving on the walls to provide additional storage if you need more than what comes in the vanity cabinetry to conserve floor space. However, if you can keep your main supply of towels and washcloths in a convenient place outside the bathroom, it will help even more.
Illuminate the Bathroom with Multiple Types of Lighting
During a renovation of your small apartment bathroom, you should update your lighting options to include both task and mood lighting. Mood lighting is ideal for navigation at night or taking a relaxing shower while task lighting allows you to see clearly at the sink for grooming purposes.
