If you’re one of the many people looking to redo your smaller bathroom, you’re probably feeling excited, but also a little overwhelmed and unsure where to start. Remodeling can be stressful, especially because bathrooms with spacing problems pose all kinds of potential design and structural issues. We want to help make your renovation as seamless as possible! Below are a few ways to make the most of your space and design in a small bathroom remodel.
Mirrors spanning from wall-to-wall allow light to reflect throughout the bathroom, causing the room to appear more spacious. A small bathroom can easily feel cramped with dark lighting, but can be fixed by using large mirrors to reflect artificial or natural light within your space.
Choose Curtains Carefully
Shower curtains are the secret heroes of bathroom design and they can make or break a room. Busy, bright colors and patterns distract and pull attention, which is not wanted in small spaces. In a small bathroom, there is less room to place design aspects and a shower curtain with a busy print causes the design to feel unbalanced. A monochrome shower curtain that compliments the other decorative pieces will make a bathroom’s design flow. If a larger budget is an option, having a glass shower door is one of the best ways to open up a bathroom. A curtain will cut off the room and make it feel even more cramped. A glass door will extend the room a couple more feet and give it a more classy and expensive feel.
Creative Storage is Your Friend
While decorating can be the most fun, it can be distracting from planning the practical side of renovations, like storage space andupdated plumbing. In a small bathroom, storage options are limited, but can be worked around with the correct forethought. Examine the layout of the room, and decide where there is any unused space. Floating shelves and mirrored medicine cabinets are two popular items that allow storage in a fashionable way.
Update Plumbing Fixtures
If you are considering a full remodel, you are probably considering updating your plumbing such as adding a new shower, tub or toilet. ASAP Plumbing specializes in toilet repairs and installation, and can take a little stress out of this part of your remodel.
Comfort is Key
In a smaller space, ventilation is one of the most important installations. We are all familiar with the steamy haze that fills a bathroom after a hot shower. The steam created from the heat is harmful to the paint in the room and can cause mold to grow. To protect these surfaces and yourself, a bathroom vent fan removes the steam and regulates the temperature in smaller spaces that have more humidity. Make sure to include this in your renovation plans for comfort and safety.
Bathroom remodeling can feel overwhelming if the right amount of preparation is not met, but we hope these tips and tools help you feel ready to redo your home!

I called the number and had to leave a message. Within 10 minutes someone called me back. They came out within a few hours and fixed my drain. Clay, my technician, was professional, and knowledgeable with a great attitude (especially on a hot Friday afternoon)! Fixed my problem in no time. Their service is outstanding. And prices are reasonable for the area. I would definitely use them again!
Stephanie Mellott First of all, they were ON TIME. In fact, the first visit was early! A slab leak is scary, but within the week, I was scheduled for repair. It took a matter of hours. All of the plumbers were polite and worked quickly and cleanly. When the contractor came to assess the damage to the house, he was so impressed by the lack of damage to my home that he asked me for the name of ASAP twice! Highly recommend this company and their services.
