Design Hints

Bathrooms can be small, but can be made to look larger through certain bathroom renovations. Adding mirrors on walls will not take up any floor space, but a large one on a wall that is free of other fittings can make the space look larger and give you the illusion of a big bathroom. Put mirrors or glass on any cabinets that you have as this can also add to the feeling of extra space. See that the tiles that you have in such small bathrooms are light colored. Improving the lighting as part of the bathroom renovation can also help to make small bathrooms less gloomy. Pay attention to ventilation and improve on it, if necessary.


Deciding On Renovations

Before you decide to take up any bathroom renovation, examine the various fittings in it and the comfort level that each of them bring. Change those that are not functioning properly, difficult to or simply inefficient to give you the service that you want form them. Check you present bathroom set up and determine whether you are able to make the full use of all of them, comfortably and conveniently. If you have to re-position any of them, this can add substantially to renovation costs, especially if it is needed to shift any water lines, drainage or even electrical points.

Renovation Items

Any bathroom renovation will need you look at a number of items, like:

Tub or Shower


Hardware and Fixtures

Flooring and Wall tiling




Bathtubs require a lot of floor space, but can make for luxurious bathing. There are also many models to choose from an can be whirlpools or Jacuzzi. Showers require just a corner and can be nicely enclosed.

Cabinets are one of the first thins you notice when you enter a bathroom and can change the look in it. They must be adequate and provide all the necessary convenience that is required from them.

Fixtures and fittings in a bathroom must suit the decor in it and must be easy to operate and maintain. It can always help if these are all of the same brand, as there will then be a homogeneity and can even result in lower costs when you source everything form the same manufacturer.

Flooring and wall tiling can make all the difference in the appearance of a bathroom. they must be of the variety that are non slippery and easy to maintain and clean. Ceramic tiles are the best and of the long lasting type. They are also available in a wide variety of colors and finishes.

It can always help if you have some additional storage space in a bathroom to take linen, detergents , cleaners and any other equipment that you need to store.

Properly positioned mirrors can make it easier for grooming and can also lead to a bathroom looking bigger. Lighting needs to be bright and soothing.
