Storage, Organization and Surfaces in Small Bathroom Design

Whether you are adding a small bathroom or remodeling one, storage and organization in small bathroom design are very important. Careful planning and design for storage and organizing the storage spaces you have will allow you to keep your addition small and save money when you remodel your small bath or plan a bathroom addition. The way you handle surfaces in your small bathroom will also be important in how large the room looks and feels. It will also be a factor in how easy it is to keep the room clean.

The design of any small bathroom remodel or addition should place great attention on storage – not only providing storage areas, but providing appropriate secure storage areas and keeping things organized. Nothing makes a small bathroom look smaller than clutter on all surfaces. There are several traditional options for storage. The most common storage areas are in a

Vanity, where you might have cabinet space or a combination of drawers and cabinets;

Medicine Cabinet;

Closet, which can be very difficult in a small bathroom; and

Shelves.

In a small bathroom, less is always more. If you include a vanity, you will probably need to choose a very small unit. Depending on your needs, you can choose the style (cabinet or drawers or a combination) that is most suited to your needs. Recessed medicine cabinets (set into the wall, with an unframed mirror) are ideal in small bathrooms.

Most remodelers tend to think of a single medicine cabinet over the sink. But with a little creativity, you can use additional medicine cabinets in other places in the small bathroom to provide both space and the light-reflecting property of the mirror to make the room look larger. For example, a larger medicine cabinet placed in a wall at one end of or behind a tub is a great place to store soaps, lotions, bubble bath, wash cloths and even towels. All the items needed for the bath can be in close proximity yet out of sight.

Some people like the idea of dividing even a small vanity with cabinet on one side and drawers on the other. Larger items can be stored in the cabinet and small items can be organized in the drawers. If you have small children, you can also place locks on the drawers used to store potentially dangerous items and cleaning substances.

If you are planning shelves for storage in your new bathroom, consider building shelves that are recessed into the wall. These shelves can be either framed with trim or left unframed. Or you can add doors to keep things on the shelves dust free. In a small bathroom, doors with glass or frosted glass doors will make the room appear more spacious than solid wood doors (and frosting creates enough blurring that you don’t need to be quite as neat). You can use the shelves strictly for storage or you can mix storage and display of decorative items. If you cannot or do not want to build recessed shelves, you might consider installing glass shelves. Because they are clear and reflect light, they do not make the room look smaller, as wood shelves might do.

Organization is very important in a small bathroom. Creative use of nooks and crannies and recessing shelves and cabinets can conserve space, make the most of available space, and keep items close to where they will be used. There are many kinds of organizing units for drawers and for cabinets. If you are planning a custom vanity or shelves, you can insert whatever you wish in terms of dividers and such.

Walls, floors, tub and shower surrounds, light fixtures and ceiling treatment are all important in designing a small bathroom that is easy to clean and does not feel cramped. Here are a few things to consider about walls, floors, surrounds and ceilings:

Tile is very easy to clean and it can be used on floors, walls, and surrounds.

The time to install radiant floor or wall heating is before floor covering is installed. This can be a wonderful addition to any bathroom and an unexpected luxury in a small bath.

Mirrors and glass will reflect light and make the room look and feel larger

Installing sound board behind drywall, under floor covering and in ceilings is a nice addition to any bathroom.

If you are a do-it-yourselfer, be sure to use cement backer board around tubs and showers and either green board or blue board for your bathroom drywall (it doesn’t absorb moisture and is less likely to mold).

Wallpaper can be a great idea in any bathroom. You might want to try to use a vinyl paper because it will be easier to clean and will not absorb moisture and mold or mildew; using fabric can be …

Interior Design For Small Apartments

While interior decorating may work easily for spacious houses, it may not for apartments. The reason is that most apartments have smaller spaces. However, with a little bit of common sense and some interior design skills or ideas, transforming your tiny place into a fully functional and beautiful home may not be too difficult at all.
The small space you have in your apartment may be one of the greatest challenges you will ever face when attempting to design the place. Sometimes, the room is too small that moving from the living to the kitchen would not even take three steps. To get the most out of a small space apartment, work around it using small but multifunctional furniture such as sofas that can transform into beds or tables convertible to storage spaces.
Another problem you will face are the walls plainly painted in white or other dull colors. If you are not allowed to repaint the walls, one of the best things you can do to solve the problem is to hang pieces of artwork. This will create a livelier effect on the walls. Mirrors also work effectively as focal points and can make your room look bigger than its actual size. Hang them near the entrance of your home or in the hallway if you have one.
You can achieve a simple but elegant look for your apartment simply by placing the right kind of furniture at the right corner of a room. Leave spaces for easy movement between furniture when arranging the place. Since the living is small, small-scale sofas and chairs are enough as long as you position them in a way that is relaxing for conversations. A small table or drawer would be perfect at the side of the sofa near the entrance.
Finally, don’t forget to accessorize with items such as lamps, pillows, curtains, and even rugs that can emphasize the theme you have set for your small home. Make sure every accessory matches well with other objects inside the house especially when it comes to color and texture. The accessories you add can also highlight your own personality if you wish to.
If you come to think of it, interior designing a small house or apartment is actually not that difficult. Sure, the limited space may hinder you at some extent but as long as you have the appropriate skills and the right supplies, you can even make it work to your advantage.…

Small Bathroom Remodel

If you have a cramped bathroom in your home, a small bathroom remodel can help you to have more space. Choosing the correct fixtures can give you the feeling of more space and also create a little more space without changing the walls.
If your bathroom includes a tub and you only use the shower, consider removing the tub and replacing it with a shower. A small shower stall can give room for a large closet in the bathroom to store linens and towels so that you can create more space in other ways. If you have other larger bathrooms located in the home that provide bathing or showering facilities and this bathroom is just for guest use, consider removing the tub and making the bath a powder room with just a toilet and sink. You can gain an additional fifteen square feet in a small bathroom.
Once you have removed the tub and installed the closet, take a look at the bathroom sink. If you have a large vanity that is taking up a lot of space, consider replacing it with a pedestal sink. The sink will be just as functional as the vanity and the storage you lose has been easily replaced with your new closet.
Over the toilet storage is a great way to reclaim some lost space in the bathroom. You will find many different over the toilet storage methods that can help to increase the space in the bathroom.
Add lots of mirrors. While mirrors do not actually add space, they can create an illusion of more space in the bathroom. You are going to need a mirror in the room anyway, so why not let it make you feel like more room.

Small Bathroom Remodels – Using 24″ Bathroom Vanity Styles

Taking on home remodel projects is a fun and creative way to express your DIY self and bring in your personal style. If you are working on a small bathroom, give it a nice open feel and create an appearance of a larger space by using specific items and a some special techniques. Use light colors, the right mirror, and the perfect size of bathroom vanity and your small bathroom will look better than ever.
Open up the Space: When working with a small bathroom, you want to make the most of the space wherever possible. A great way to do this right off the bat is to choose a new vanity that has a good amount of under sink and counter storage space. By using a vanity that has good storage space, it will eliminate the need for things like over-toilet shelving units and multitudes of towel racks and hooks. Another way to create additional space is by using a built-in shelving unit. If you already have one, great; if you don’t, then consider installing one, they are great for storage space and because they are flush against the wall, it gives a clean appearance. Pedestal style vanities pair well with this type of shelving, because they are also great for creating the look of a cleaner and more open space.
Create Illusions: Add the feeling and look of additional space by playing with angles and reflection. Another option is to utilize mirrors for the purpose of creating the illusion of space within the small bathroom. And if you are lucky enough to have a window in your bathroom, then you can use mirrors to add the illusion of more light too, which also helps with the look of more space. Adding a large mirror to your bathroom will create the illusion that the space is a little larger that it looked before. If you’re going to repaint the walls, make sure to use a light color palette. Cool, lighter tones tend to make the space seem more open and less closed in than darker colors, thus making the room feel more spacious. Light colors will also make your bathroom brighter, especially if you have natural light coming in.
Toss the Clutter: No matter what you do, if there’s a lot of stuff in your bathroom will still feel small and claustrophobic. Cut back on decorative objects and go for a minimalist look. Toss anything you don’t really need; if you can’t remember the last time you used it, it goes in the trash. Limit decorative elements to the walls and try to add interest through the frame on your mirror and the light fixtures.
Start your small bathroom remodel creatively by getting some paper and pencil to illustrate a diagram of what you want for the bathroom. Make notations of the room’s dimensions and the estimated dimensions for necessary items you plan to shop for, like a 24″ bathroom vanity and shop for 30″ square mirrors, for example. This way, you’ll have some idea of the existing floor plan as well as the floor plan you desire for the completed project.
Please remember that safety is always the number one priority when working on home remodel projects. If you are unsure of any part of the project, consider speaking with a professional.…
