How to update small bathroom details for big impact
Thursday May 26th, 2022
Spending more time at home over the past few years has encouraged many people to reimagine how they organize their space, no matter the size.
When it comes to your bathroom, there are easy adjustments to make a big difference in how the small room is used. Here are some tips:
1. Hide the mystery
A popular trend in home design and renovations is hidden conveniences. This means tucking away as much as possible while maintaining function and usability of the space. Consider reorganizing your cabinets and vanity with proper storage units that keep clutter organized and out of sight.
2. Maintain boundaries
Always remember that electricity and water don’t mix, especially in smaller spaces like a bathroom. If you’re remodelling, keep your outlets at least 500 millimetres away from the sink and bathtub to keep safe, and ensure they have ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protection if within 1.5m of a stink, tub or shower.
3. Reflect on it
For a space of any size, we know that adding mirrors and lighter colours can make a room feel bigger than it actually is. Upgrading with a larger mirror, or perhaps adding in another small one for décor can do wonders to make a tight squeeze feel bright and airy.
4. Warm it up
There are many heated additions you can apply to a bathroom beyond turning up the temperature in your bubble bath. In-floor heating or heated towel racks both offer a powerful upgrade.
If you’re redoing electrical in your bathroom, whether it’s new outlets or a toilet seat warmer, consider working with a Licensed Electrical Contracting business to ensure everything is done safely and that you have a certificate from Electrical Safety Authority, known as ESA, at the completion of the work.
