1. Use your bathroom paint to your advantage
By choosing the right colour palette for your bathroom you can refresh the whole room and make it appear bigger and more spacious. It is recommended to choose a bright or even neutral colour. Darker colours in a small bathroom are not complimentary and make the space appear cavernous. While you are painting your bathroom another home improvement idea is to paint your vanity. Painting your vanity white will make it stand out and look fresh, while painting it grey can give off a trendy, cottage-style look and feel. Consider doing the paintwork yourself as a DIY project to save money. There are lots of YouTube tutorials guiding the process. Then the bathroom renovations team can do the rest of the installations for you.
2. Create storage space by installing built-in cabinetry
With your bathroom renovations, storage space is critical for functionality. Shaker designs hone in on utility and simplicity. Although your bathroom may be small, there is likely a corner that would suit built-in shelving. Built-in shelving adds style and elegance to a small bathroom. Custom shelving units give you space to store towels and toiletries. Built-in cabinetry is easier to keep clean than a free-standing unit. Built-in cabinet space gives you an area to store away your bathroom essentials and adds a tidy, clutter-free, minimalistic theme. If you have gone for white and grey in your small bathroom as your colour choice, white cabinetry made from MDF covered in laminate would work well.
3. Create a statement-making floor
Even though your bathroom is small and you’re on a tight budget, you can still install an eye-catching floor. Due to the square footage of the floor space being a small area, there is more room to play with your money and floor material choice. You could choose a modern tile pattern or even spend a bit more on heated flooring. A new floor can instantly refresh a bathroom area and add a sense of luxury and elegance. You could choose white tiles or a darker shade of grey to offset against the white in the rest of the bathroom.
4. Choose a glass door for your shower as it creates a sense of space
The traditional shower curtain can make a small bathroom feel even smaller than they actually are. When speaking to the bathroom designer and in using our bathroom services a worthwhile home improvement idea is to consider a walk-in shower enclosed by a glass door to open up the space. Glass doors are easier to clean than shower curtains. You simply wipe them down with some shower cleaner. Bathroom renovations in Scotland can be done on a tight budget, with the many ideas our bathroom services team has on offer.
5. Install small lighting fixtures in your small bathroom space
Look for compact-sized lighting fixtures to make the small space appear bigger and create a modern and streamlined look and feel. Smaller fixtures are less pricey than bigger fixtures. A small hanging downlight would work well or LED light fixtures. Lighting will help make the room feel well-lit and add an element of space. Choosing energy-efficient light-bulbs will also help you save on your energy bills. This energy-saving home improvement idea is really handy.
