Design for Small Bathrooms

Most homeowners are looking to remodel a small bathroom. Because the room is a little small, it is actually even more important to think about its design, because you want your small bathroom to be a positive factor a time of resale. You certainly don't want your potential home buyers to walk away thinking that you bathroom is a little small and doesn't look very good. Check out the designs below where the homeowners creatively used the space to get an upscale look. Smaller vanities with a single sink can still look incredible – simply add a modern vessel sink or install a large framed mirror that will stand out as soon as you walk into the room.

In a small bathroom design, it is very important to consider what you will do with the bathtub or shower. Homeowners typically take only three baths per year, so you may want to consider getting rid of your tub and only installing a shower. That will allow you to save money on the tub and focus your investment on a nice shower tile floor and walls, with a nice glass enclosure and a premium “car wash” showerhead system that will turn your daily shower into a nice spa experience. You can even heat your shower floor with a WarmlyYours radiant flooring system. View our Showers page.

Because your space will be limited, think about adding a furniture cabinet that is narrow but stands tall, for optimal storage capacity. Look for a matching set between the vanity and the furniture cabinet.
