Innovative Ways to Redo Your Small Bathroom in Lancaster County


As strange as it sounds, the bathroom is one of the most important parts of your home. The way your bathroom looks and feels projects a certain image. As a homeowner, you want to ensure your house is as modern and comfortable as possible. This includes making your bathroom the contemporary haven it deserves to be.

You know all the current trends: the large, master bathroom with the double sinks, water closet, and spa tub. But many homes have multiple bathrooms, and not all of them have the space to be converted into a relaxing hideaway. Even though your bathroom has a small amount of square-footage, it doesn’t mean it shouldn’t, or can’t, be redone and brought up-to-date. Renovating even the tiniest bathroom is important; not only will it increase the resale value of your house, your and your family’s everyday experience will improve.


Stylistic Changes

Nothing dates a bathroom as much as its color palette. Back in the 1960s and 70s, designing a bathroom with one specific color theme was all the rage. Every part of the bathroom – the fixtures, the walls, the floor – all had the exact same color. Something as easy as repainting the walls would help to update your bathroom.

Changing the countertops or faucets is another simple change you can make. Replacing your old Formica countertops with something a bit more durable, like tile or stone, is a simple, yet effective change that would modernize your bathroom. You could also update the fixtures in the sink and in the tub and shower. Don’t underestimate the power of a great showerhead!

There are a few other ideas you can use to help make the most of your small bathroom space. Ensuring you are utilizing the corners, or installing a cabinet over the top of the toilet, are some other ideas you can do to creatively maximize the space you have available to you.

Structural Changes

Sometimes, your bathroom is stylistically up-to-date, but it still doesn’t seem to be as modern as you want it. In this case, structural changes may be necessary. Some small bathrooms may have a full bathtub, which can be easily replaced with a shower stall. A sink with a full cabinet underneath may be changed to a pedestal sink, which will add more visual space, allowing for more movement within a smaller space.

You could also replace the flooring. Older tile, whether it is an off-trend color or just seems worn, can be a real detriment to your bathroom’s overall look. Installing a lighter-colored tile can really open up the space and make your bathroom look larger than it is.
