Even small bathroom renovations can give you great results.
If you don’t have the budget, time or energy to completely remodel your bathroom, don’t worry about it! You don’t have to give up on your dreams of recreating your bathroom just because the money isn’t in the bank or you have too many other things occupying your time. Oftentimes, it is the small things that make the most significant changes in your living space. With some small bathroom renovations, you can completely change the look and feel of the room.
Look at the color on your walls and bathroom cabinets. Can you envision that space in another color? Color is what you see first when you walk into a bathroom, and it largely determines how you feel when you walk into the room. Some colors are calming, some are energizing, and others are relaxing. If you don’t feel the way you want to feel when you walk into your bathroom, then an update in color can make a big change.
You can also use color to open up a small bathroom so that it feels larger. You may not be able to bust out the walls for a complete expansion, but you can go with a color that gives the illusion of an expansion. Stay away from dark colors in this case and brighten the room with lighter shades.
Does your bathroom have an outdated light fixture in the middle of the ceiling? Would you like to have more or less light in one area of the room? If you have never thought about the amount or type of light in this room of your home, you are not alone. Many people assume that the lights in their bathroom are unchangeable, but that is far from the truth because of what’s available today.
Look into some unique lighting solutions, such as bubble lights around the tub or light controls that allow you to dim the room for a romantic bubble bath. The fixtures you use can change the style of the bathroom while the amount any type of light can brighten or darken the room for overall effect.
Faucets come in different styles, colors, shapes and sizes. Spend an afternoon walking through a home improvement store, and you will see that you have many options when it comes to changing this small part of your bathroom. If your current sink and bathtub faucets don’t match, you may want to select something that gives the room a more cohesive feel through your small bathroom renovations. This can also be the start to changing the overall style of the room.
What if you got rid of your traditional bathroom vanity and added a modern glass sink bowl? What about adding glass doors on your bathtub? You may envision your sink counter a different color or a different material entirely. What about marble?
If you want to keep the scope of your bathroom renovation small, you may be able to afford more luxurious materials. This will give the bathroom a more sophisticated look while changing the overall look and feel for the better.
