When you decide to remodel a bathroom, you can’t help but get excited.  Even a small bathroom design can be transformed with the right choice of cabinets, countertops and fixtures.  Get it right and all of sudden it just might be the most popular bathroom in the house.

So how can you go big with a small bathroom design?  Consider these 4 ideas help get the most out of your small bathroom design:

  • Add function – Your current small bathroom design typically has tons of opportunity hiding. Can you add drawers to your vanity cabinet to increase storage and take more items off the countertop?  Can you go from a single bowl to double vanity top, ideal for moving the kids faster in the morning without fighting over one sink.  Perhaps a vanity linen cabinet can replace a built-in linen closet and really tie the space together.
  • Add color – Color plays a big part in the transformation of any small bathroom design, and the project picture is no exception. When it comes to adding color, the opportunities are endless.  It can be as simple as the paint on the walls or as bold as the tile or cabinet finish you choose.
  • Add glass – A bathroom remodel typically means “curtains” for the old shower – cheers to that! Glass doors are a great way to open up a small bathroom design.  And by adding some visual interest like a tile shower inlay (shown in picture, you draw your attention through the glass and up, down and all around to make the space feel bigger.
  • Add space – there are more options than ever to create more space within your small bathroom design. Reduced depth vanity cabinets and space saving toilets give you a little more room to work with, while using pocket doors,  lower profile fixtures that take up less room or under mount sinks that give just a little more landing space on a countertop are more subtle but still valuable space-adding decisions.

There are plenty of small bathroom design ideas that you can consider to create one “hall” of a bathroom.  Understanding the options and the limitations you have can help you create the perfect small bathroom design.  The hall bathroom is typically utilized by many, so set it up that way!
