Small Bathroom Renovation Projects

Small BathroomIn small spaces, every little detail matters. The right wall color, tile work or lighting can transform a dull, dated bathroom into a bright, stylish retreat. Right now you may have the time to work on your small bathroom. Here are a few ideas on what you can do to make your bathroom feel larger:


Using multiple larger mirrors will you give the illusion of a much bigger space. Furthermore, large mirrors will also brighten up the area.

Stone & Tile

Use stone, such as marble or a marble tile in your tiny bathroom. There are two advantages: firstly, light shiny surfaces will give your room an extra dimension and secondly, it does not matter if the material gets wet. Basically, try to use waterproof material throughout the entire area.

Pick The Right Color

Yes, going white or picking a light color will give your small bathroom an airy feel and will make it appear larger. However, do not dismiss the idea of going dark just yet. Dark tiles or dark stone can give a small space an intimate feel. Putting up a larger mirror on a dark wall will definitely add some drama to your bathroom. Maybe even consider using large floral or even mural wallpaper to give the space hat extra dimension. Just make sure to pick waterproof wallpaper.

Light Fixtures

If your small bathroom does not have a window to let in some natural light, try to add light fixtures. Sconces on either side of your mirrors or sink will help brighten up the space. Also, consider getting a ceiling light fixture. Your bathroom will appear bigger and look more interesting if you add some LED lighting strips under your cabinets for some indirect lighting.
