simple elegant white half bathroom with wainscotRemodeling a bathroom that’s not only outdated, but small poses some challenges. However, with some creativity and modern design techniques a beautiful bathroom oasis can be implemented into your small space. There are just a few things to keep in mind before going into this renovation: space, functionality and impact.



Obviously space constraints play a large part in any small bathroom design. Before you set off on a bathroom renovation, take stock of the space and layout you have to work with. Selecting sinks, cabinets, and toilets for a small room can be difficult because everything looks smaller in a giant store room. To avoid any mismatches, large pieces should be measured to make sure they’ll fit in your space before they’re purchased.



Functional design in a small bathroom remodel is also critical. When working with a limited area, you’ll need to consider how to maximize storage. Consider recessed shelving and built-in storage that makes use of the dead space within existing walls. Opt for open shelving that offers easy access without closing in the space. Also, look for smaller toilets and pedestal sinks that can make the room appear more spacious.



Finally, consider impact when you tackle your bathroom remodel. Just because the space is small doesn’t mean it should be boring. For a small bathroom remodel, it’s all in the details. Choosing a the right paint color can make a big impact in the tiny space.


Small bathroom design can create a room that is just as beautiful as a large one. By weighing the available space, creating a functional design, and considering the impact of your design choices, your bathroom renovation could become the envy of all of your friends.
