Bath Design Trends and Remodeling Advice

Homeowners that are seeking information on remodeling their bathroom may want to consider some of the recent tips that were provided by the Maryland Bathroom Remodeling blog. The blog has been described as a place where individuals can share their tips on where they can store their supplies, when to make repairs, when to discard damaged items, how to create more space, and many other matters that are important to homeowners who are seeking to remodel.

One of the more popular posts from earlier this month focused on how to save and create more space in a small bathroom. Although many don’t realize it, it is possible to improve a small bathroom with the use of large features instead. The size of the bathroom is generally one of the major selling points that determine whether or not a prospective buyer wants to purchase the property.

There are a few options that can be used to make a small bathroom seem more functional and friendly. One option is to move some of the walls and make the bathroom larger, if possible. However, this usually results in making one of the other rooms in the area a bit smaller. Typically, homeowners replace this with closets or a room that they don’t use so often, though sometimes they are more willing to sacrifice some of their bedroom space in order to ensure that their bathroom is larger.

Another option is to leave the walls as they are, but make some changes to the overall design and layout of the bathroom. This would be making the bathroom seem larger visually while aiming to make more storage space in the area. Although the bathroom would still be fairly small, there would be more room for individuals to store their items and when individuals would walk into the bathroom or spend time in it, the design of the room itself would make it seem larger than it was.

It’s a good idea to take advantage of making build in shelves, cabinets, and other unique niches. This provides more space for people to store their items. This is especially important when there are multiple people who are sharing the bathroom area. This way, everyone has their own space to store their items and it doesn’t feel as if they’re crowding each other. Adding a vessel sink is another option; it will make the bathroom seem more elegant and will make the space that is present upon more usable to those who are making use of the bathroom.

In addition, it’s a good idea to avoid any dark colors or patterns that may seem too active. A good option is to make a two or three color combination featuring white or off-white as a primary color. This can make it easier to create color schemes that are simple but have versatility about what can be done with them in terms of design.
