Have A Cramped Bathroom? 3 Remodeling Tips To Open Up Space

Posted on: 30 April 2020

When you step into your bathroom, you may appreciate the fact that you have everything you need, but you may also find that the space feels cramped. While this may not affect how much the bathroom is used, it may impact how much your family enjoys using the bathroom. If you want to make it more enjoyable to use, you should work on projects that open up the space.

While you can try things on your own to make progress, you will find that hiring a bathroom remodeling company to take on several projects is your best chance for major success.


A large bathtub is one of the most impactful features for determining how spacious the bathroom feels. While you may enjoy having an oversized tub to soak in, you may conclude that you would rather have more space for your family to enjoy in exchange for a smaller bathtub. This does not mean that you have to sacrifice much because you can still get an extra-deep soaking tub.

If you want to take it even further, you can combine your bath and shower into one feature because leaving them as separate features will always take up a decent amount of space.


When the shower in your bathroom gets used several times throughout the day, you may feel a little hesitant to make any changes to this feature. But, you do not need a huge walk-in shower to enjoy the space or clean up thoroughly. A bathroom remodeling company can determine whether you can shrink the walk-in shower slightly to open up more usable space in the room.


While inspecting the vanity area, you may notice that the whole area is quite large. This may lead to a sizable countertop and plenty of storage underneath the sink. But, you may also find that this storage is somewhat inefficient when it contributes to making your bathroom feel cluttered.

A better option is to downsize the vanity to one that is more reasonable in size and get creative with storage by investing in medicine cabinets and shelves. After planning for a downsize, you can show remodelers what you want to be able to store and they can create new storage spaces.

Committing to a size reduction for the largest features in your bathroom will help you take up less space and make the room more enjoyable to use for everyone in your family.


Learning All About Home Remodeling Projects

Hi there, I'm Edgar Elroy. I am excited to share my remodeling expertise through this website. Although this is not my profession, I have gained a lot of knowledge about remodeling materials, tools and techniques over the years. I recently hired a contractor to remodel my bathroom and kitchen areas for an updated look. The remodeling process took some extra time because I changed the plans in the middle of the project. Thankfully, my contractor was willing to adjust the bid to compensate for the changes. I would like to share information about remodeling from the bidding process to applying the paint. I hope you will learn a lot from the information on my site. Thanks.
