Small Bathroom Ideas

small bathroom ideasNot every home has a lavish bathroom. Large households often have multiple bathrooms and even if they master is large, the other bathrooms will be fairly small or average. When you have plenty of space and also sufficient money to spare, there is no shortage of ideas. You can have the luxury to go for posh, sprawling vanity cabinets, extravagant fixtures and plan your bathroom décor without blinking twice. But if there is a space crunch and a strict budget to add onto it then you have to get creative for your next small bathroom remodel.

The biggest challenge is to manage the space while having all the features, amenities and fixtures that are quintessential. Here is an approach that you can use to come up with your own small bathroom ideas. You would also find a few small bathrooms in the following suggestions before consulting with your bathroom remodeling contractor in Colorado Springs.

Bathtub & Shower In One

You may not be able to have a bathtub in a very small bathroom. Even if that is possible, you cannot possibly have a bathtub and a shower separately. You must combine the two. Even the country homes where there are large bathrooms, the bathtub and shower is combined because it makes more sense having one area for showering and bathing. Besides, the same plumbing structure gets used when the two are in the same place else you have to make separate arrangement and spend more for a split plumbing connection.

Cubicle Shower

If you are not going for a bathtub and simply want a shower, then opting for a cubicle would be one of the best small bathroom ideas. If you have been to the studio hotel rooms or even in the deluxe rooms, you would notice that the bathrooms are not that big but they somehow have everything and appear to be spacious. This is primarily because of smart use of cubicle showers and similar features.

Use The Corners

You should use all the corners. This is also among the most important small bathroom ideas. Place the toilet along a corner which will save quite a bit of space. Align the vanity, cabinet or sink alongside another corner which will save more space. Use a corner and its two side walls for the cubicle shower. Such designs are always the best small bathroom ideas.

Use The Walls

Go for fixtures that can be fixed into the walls and not have the entire installation on the floor against the walls of the bathroom. You can also embed vanity cabinets into the walls in between the studs to save space.

Round Bowl Toilets

If you have limited space, it is recommended to go with a round bowl toilet rather than an elongated bowl toilet. The elongated are more popular and most people consider them more comfortable but they stick out quite a long ways from the wall which could hinder you in a small bathroom.
