Practical Apartment Renovation Tips for Small Bathrooms

04 December 2018

The small bathrooms in many apartments pose a challenge when it comes to remodeling them to include optimal functionality and attractive ambiance. The reason for this is that all the necessary bathroom features and amenities must fit into the room in a space-conserving fashion. If you include these in the wrong manner, your tiny bathroom will look and feel cramped. On the other hand, when you take the correct approach, you can create an illusion of space in your limited bathroom area. Think Light and Bright with Colours For the main décor shades, think light and bright colours. These will help the room appear larger than it is in reality. This holds true with paint and stain as well as wall and floor tiling or other material options. You can add dark colours for accents if you so desire.
