Feeling trapped?

Asking how you can make your small bathroom larger is an absolutely essential question to ask during the design phase. There are a number of tactics you can employ when designing your new bathroom, which we will outline in this article. It’s important to work alongside an expert bathroom designer. For the greater Saint Louis area, there is no better option than Homestar Design Remodel for your bathroom remodel. That being said, let’s dive in.

Wall-Mounted Faucets

By going with wall-mounted faucets, you are going to be able to decrease the depth of your cabinetry and countertops since you won’t need as much countertop space to house faucets. This allows for greater square footage of the foot traffic area. Unfortunately, this strategy doesn’t work if the vanity in question lies against an exterior wall, as the plumbing would be subject to freezing during low temperatures. An alternative would be a faucet placed on the side of the bowl rather than behind it as is traditional.

Curbless Shower Base

A curbless shower base will make the room appear larger by offering the eye a more linear sight while also allowing for more walkable area. A curbless shower works by dropping the sub-floor in between the floor joists, and then using a sloped, waterproof shower base membrane that then gets tiled over.

Floating Vanity

A floating vanity will open the area up by allowing your feet to go where the base of the vanity would have otherwise gone, allowing for greater movement freedom while also visually opening up the area. There’s a reason they call it a toe-kick.
