Small spaces can make it difficult to see the potential for a remodel. Yet, the average size of a home bathroom is between 36 and 40 square feet. As some of the smallest rooms in the house, homeowners have to get creative to find enough storage. Updating a small bathroom can be challenging, but it also provides a good way to make use of the small space without adding on.
Best Bathtubs for a Small Bath Remodel
Standard bathtubs are five feet long. But if you long for a soak in the tub, there are options to accommodate a smaller bathroom. One option is to use a smaller bathtub. Compact models come in four and four and a half foot options that can fit in smaller spaces. These smaller tubs are made of high-quality acrylic and come in many different styles. Whether you dream of a walk-in tub or you need a kid-friendly bathing solution, there are many styles and sizes to choose from.
Best Shower Options for a Small Bath Remodel
If a bathtub isn’t a requirement, small showers can provide a space-efficient way to bathe. While the luxury of a larger walk-in shower is nice to have, some of the smallest options on the market measure three feet or less in width and length.
These smaller showers are fitted with a center drain and can be built with our custom walls made from durable acrylic. A shower curtain is the most efficient way to close the entry to a smaller shower. But if that is not your taste, there are options for glass doors that fit a narrow enclosure. Our Sidewinder door is a perfect option for this situation. These shower doors range from 29″ to 47 ½”.
Design Features to Consider for Smaller Showers
Compact showers that make the most of small spaces tend to have additional features that make them work well in tight spaces. Whether you are trying to conserve square footage or need to maximize storage, here is what you should look for.
A neo-angle shower base is a style of stand-up shower that features an angled edge instead of a square design. These showers fit in the corner of a room without protruding into the walking space. This style is made from a durable fiberglass with a center drain and works with many different door styles.
When it comes to the walls, you should consider built-in storage options. We can install shelving and/or bath caddies onto all of our shower wall panels. When it comes to making the most out of small spaces, finding ways to add storage is essential to creating a usable space.
