It wasn’t always the norm to have large bathrooms in homes. In older homes, you will still find small and oddly functioning bathrooms. Many homeowners believe that a small bathroom is hard to remodel and that you must have to tear down walls. At Bennett Contracting, we have the experience to work within your small bathroom to create a modern functions bathroom with all the features you need.
If you are able to visually raise the ceiling without actually raising the ceiling will give off the feel of a larger room. You can also rethink bathroom fixtures – if you have a bathroom fixture that hangs down it will emphasize the size of the room. Instead use receding lights or lights that are planted on the walls.
Most homeowners tend to lean towards getting a textured shower door or even adding a shower curtain for increased privacy, but a glass shower door will extend the look of the bathroom. If your remodeling plans allow, a standing shower will offer more space than a bathtub.
There never seems to be enough storage in bathrooms and a small bathroom will have even less. Some storage ideas that could give you more space are extending your counter tops over the toilet, adding built in shelves in a corner of the bathroom, or installing a vanity with shelving under it.
When this Selkirk couple moved into their new home this bathroom was just a toilet and sink and the door opened into the family room! That was not what they wanted so they contacted Bennett Contracting. Working with project manager Anthony they were able to rearrange everything so that the bathroom door is in the hallway near the kitchen and family room. Some of our clients lean heavily on our design staff, but others know what they want and enjoy shopping for the fixtures, picking colors and finishes on their own. As you can see from the results, they can be very good at it, too.
