Remodeling for a Growing Family Can be a Challenge
Remodeling for a growing family can be quite a task. More and more homeowners are coming to realize the tremendous importance of bathroom remodeling . In an age where everything comes in large sizes, sometimes you just need to remodel your bathroom for a growing family. Most of us would love to have some extra space in the bathroom, but the problem is how to get there from here. Most houses are equipped with half bathrooms, which usually include a toilet a sink. However, if you want to turn it into a full bath, you need extra room.
In order to maximize space in your bathroom, there are some things you need to do. The following tips will guide you through this daunting process, allowing you to maximize the space in the bathroom and make the most out of this important part of the house.
Store up the Items in the Bathroom
First of all, you should remove all personal items from the bathroom, including towels, blow dryers, wash clothes or makeup. Take them all out and store as many as possible in the attic. Move those you really need back in the bathroom, storing them in a more organized fashion. Store the towels and other unnecessary items in a hall closet and put only a few towels in the bathroom. By doing so, you will save plenty of space.
Crates that can fit into the bathroom shelves are just perfect for storing additional items. Use a few crates for hair care items, such as bobby pins, blow driers or hair ties, and a couple of others for hair spray, conditioner and shampoo. An important aspect you need to remember – organize them in a way that makes sense to you and is convenient enough.
Make the Most out of Glass
In order to gain even more space, you should start getting rid of those ancient frosted-glass shower doors or shower curtains and replace them with top-quality clear glass. This will give the appearance of more space and will give you a feel of comfort and spaciousness.
Be creative and you can easily maximize space in your bathroom. If you are not that lucky to have natural light in the bathroom, go with recessed light. Indirect lighting will give the feel of extra space and make the bathroom look more appealing.
Maximizing your Space
Even if it might not save you a lot of space, a soap rack can do wonders. In order to maximize space in your bathroom, you don’t necessarily have to spend a fortune. The previous ideas are extremely easy to implement and they surely w on’t break your budget. However, if you want to be more practical, you can start turning half bath into a full bath. Start by expanding the walls, tiling, moving the toilet and continue with plumbing, piping, moving the sink and of course painting.
A bathroom remodeling could be a daunting task, but it can also be extremely funny and interactive. Think out of the box and enjoy this opportunity to spend more time brainstorming ideas along with other members of the family.
