August 2, 2016 / Mansfield

If you’re a remodeler or experienced DIY homeowner challenged with making a big improvement to a small bathroom space, relax. Help is here.

Not all bathrooms are massive, but space doesn’t matter. Transforming a small bathroom into a luxurious one can happen when you know the right products and design tips. Here are some of our favorite things to keep in mind for small bathroom renovations:

Tip #1 – Maximize storage space with floating shelves, container storage, wall-mounted storage or even a floor to ceiling cabinet (perhaps with a mirror on the outside!).

Tip #2 – Add mirrors to enhance the space.Hy-Lite Decorative Glass Floral Oval 2ft x 3ft

Tip #3 – Swap out an old window for a decorative glass window that becomes a focal point of the room. Styles from Hy-Lite include operable versions to allow air flow into the bathroom.

Tip #4 – Create a fuller space feeling with well-placed lighting.

Tip #5 – Add a stylish toilet that makes a design statement in the bathroom and ties in with 2016 bathroom trends! Consider one of the toilets from the Affordable Style suite collections from Mansfield Plumbing.

Tip #7 – Keep it light.  Use brighter colors, like tones of whites, grays and beiges to create an open feeling.

Tip #8– Add texture with glass tiles, mosaics or grained wallpaper.

Tip #9 – Stagger towel racks on the walls and add a Clutterbuster Family Towel Bar from Hinge-It . The rack stores behind the door and has four parallel bars for drying and storing towels.
