1. Make a small bathroom feel big – There are clever ways you can maximize space in a small bathroom. Try using a corner sink to open up floor space. Be creative with the vanity you choose too. Using a rounded vanity instead of a traditional rectangle vanity cuts down on used space. Also try wall mounted faucets that allow you to use a narrower sink and vanity.
  2. Standard Bathroom Dimensions are a thing – Before you even start making purchases, understand the standard dimensions of a toilet, shower/tub surround, or sink. Knowing the dimensions will help you plan better. Also, remember that the bathroom door and shower door have a big swing radius to take into account when planning the bathroom layout.
  3. A few finishing touches go a long way – Splurge on a few high end pieces in the bathroom. Having a row of tile in the shower surround made of high end materials will enhance the look of the whole room without breaking the bank. Or, splurge on a statement piece, like a one-of-a-kind sink basin or faucet. Adding a few special touches to the bathroom can easily make the room look like a million bucks.
  4. Choose materials carefully for the space – The bathroom is a wet place. That means there is plenty of opportunity for mold and mildew to grow. Choose materials based on where they will be used. Have tile in the shower that is not porous and easy to clean. Make sure your flooring material is slip resistant for those wet feet getting out of the shower.
  5. Don’t overlook the lighting – A proper lighting scheme can make or break a room. Use appropriate lights for the purpose of the space. Task lighting at the mirror, ambient lighting for the open spaces, and maybe some dimmable lights for a relaxing soak in the tub.
