Having a tiny bathroom in Coeur d’Alene, ID poses many challenges for any homeowner. And sometimes, you can’t help it because that’s the only available space for it. However, that doesn’t mean that you should limit yourself with design choices. There are plenty of excellent designs for small bathrooms to make them look more spacious and less cramped.  But if you want to save space, take a look at the options featured here. That way, when you finally get around to having your bathroom remodeled in Coeur d’Alene, ID you know which look to go for.

Do you really need that much storage space in the bathroom?

If you think about it, there’s not much stuff that you need to store in your bathroom. You might be thinking of adding big cabinets under the sink or above it but those features will just make the bathroom look even more cramped and clunky. With that being said, some ways to make more room are by reducing what you put in it and avoiding clutter. That way, you won’t feel the need to add unnecessary storage space.

Use a small sink and a small-scale toilet for a small bathroom.

When buying a new sink for your bathroom remodel, choose smaller-sized sinks that don’t take up too much space. Of course, don’t just focus on the size, choose one that goes with your new bathroom’s overall design. Small-scale toilets also take up less space than traditional ones. Just make sure to buy one that a full-grown adult can use..

Choose a walk-in shower instead of a bathtub.

Bathtubs take a lot of space in the bathroom so once you start your bathroom remodel in Coeur d’Alene, ID it should be the first one to go. Have a walk-in shower with seamless glass walls installed instead and you will instantly notice the difference. If your budget is tight, you can just buy a shower curtain in place of glass walls. However, glass walls are more durable, and they create an illusion of a wider space to any bathroom that cannot be attained by their opaque alternatives.

Add cubbies instead of cabinets

The bathroom wall and the room next to it usually has a small space in between them that can be used to create an inset wall cubby. This is a great way to add storage without sacrificing the already limited bathroom space. Keep in mind, however, that this requires breaking down some parts of your bathroom wall to make room for the cubby. You can also add hooks on bare walls to add functionality. You can use them when needed or just leave them bare and ready for use.
