Reinvent Your Home

My name is Jackie. Welcome to my new blog. This blog is designed to offer advice and information to anyone out there who is considering reinventing their home. I woke up one morning and realised that I hadn't changed the decor of my home in over 15 years. The wallpaper was faded, the fireplace looked dated and the paint on the walls was chipped and cracked. I woke my husband and insisted that we take action. The next day, I contacted various remodelling contractors and started discussing plans. I spent the next couple of weeks chatting with them as they completely transformed my home. I was so pleased with the result, I decided to start a blog.

Design Tips for Making the Most of a Small Bathroom

Renovating a bathroom can be an enjoyable experience, giving you the opportunity to give the room an entirely fresh look and get it just the way you want it. With particularly small bathrooms, however, it's quite a challenge.

If you've decided to remodel a small bathroom, think of it as a chance to start over and get the most out of the available space. With a bit of forethought and clever design, you can make the room seem bigger than it actually is and fit more in than you might think. Follow these tips and turn your small bathroom into a beautiful area in which to wash and relax.

Keep it light

Dark colours can easily overpower a room, making it feel like it's closing in. Where there's limited space, that's the last thing you want, so keep it light and airy to maximise the roomy feeling. If you really want some dark colour and find plain white boring, you can get away with a single accent wall. Pastel shades can work well, too, but keep them as light as possible.

Use the power of mirrors

Mirrors have a wonderful effect — they make rooms seem bigger than they are. They can also increase the feeling of light in an area. Because of this, it's a good idea to include some mirrors of significant size in your bathroom design. To save space, use bathroom cabinets with large mirrors across the entire front so it can double as storage.

Minimise clutter

Although you might have lots of washing products and decorative items you want to keep in your bathroom, limiting the amount of stuff lying about prevents the room from feeling full and crowded.

Get smart with your storage, and you won't have to miss out on having your essential items in the bathroom. You should be able to find a small cabinet, set of drawers or hamper that will fit neatly underneath the sink, using a space that's otherwise neglected. If it won't overcrowd the walls, fit a shelf or two, and place neat wooden boxes or trays on top to keep the contents tidy.

Choose smaller appliances

There are sinks and baths on the market that are designed to fit into the smallest of spaces, and this frees up additional room to help you feel more relaxed. You can get a bath that isn't much bigger than a stand-alone shower unit, giving you double the functionality and even freeing up some vertical wall space.
