Homeowners often think remodeling a smaller bathroom will save time and money, but this isn’t the case. A small full bathroom, even if it is about 50 square feet, still has the same components as your larger master bath. Powder Rooms lack a shower and tub, which can save time and money, but if you’re looking to remodel your smaller full or guest bathroom first, expect the process to be just as long as if it were 100 square feet.

Redo Your Shower
If you want to modernize the space you have, consider taking out the old shower/tub combination and replacing it with a walk-in shower. Standing showers are versatile and can be placed in a corner or against a wall. In a smaller bathroom, tucking the shower away in a corner can create the feeling of a larger space.
Alternatively, you can make the shower the same size as your former bathtub so you don’t feel cramped while using it. The glass walls still create the illusion of a larger room, as your bathroom won’t be broken up by a shower curtain or tub walls.
Standing showers are also unique in their design. The wall surrounds, which we will talk about in another section, can offer a splash of color or keep the space feeling simple and clean.
Standing showers can also have benches placed in them and tend to use fewer gallons of water than bathtubs.
If you’re fond of your shower/tub combo, you can update that as well. American Bath Remodeling offers fiberglass tub replacements and bathtub liners to easily update the look of your tub.
Replacing Bathroom Tile
Perhaps the most dramatic way of changing the look of your smaller bathroom is by changing the tile in the shower, floor and wall surrounds. American Bath Remodeling offers non-porous material or natural cultured marble that resists mold and mildew. The wall surrounds, which are the tiles on the walls of your shower, are completely grout-free for easier cleaning and maintenance.
Wall surrounds can be acrylic and fiberglass. These materials create a pristine and timeless look that is easy to maintain. They are typically available in multiple colors and are budget friendly.
Natural stone tile, such as marble, gives your bathroom a timeless feel. Stone can make a statement too. It can turn a small space into a spa-like retreat. Common types to choose from for wall surrounds are onyx, travertine, granite, slate and marble.
Ceramic and porcelain are popular choices as they are easy to clean, grant you the ability to create a style that fits your taste. A professional should install these types of tiles, as it is important for corners to be properly sealed to avoid any water leakage. They are typically more expensive options than fiberglass and acrylic, but have a longer lifespan.
Quartz Vanity Tops
Quartz is a cheaper alternative to marble and just as durable and beautiful. American Bath Remodeling only uses quartz vanity tops that are guaranteed to never rust, peel or stain. You can choose the colors of midnight, mocha, ice white, grey, egg shell, dark grey, cotton, or beige.
Quartz countertops are nonporous and sleek. The benefits of quartz countertops go on and on: they are virtually indestructible, durable, come in many varieties and are low maintenance.
American Bath Remodeling also offers solid wood vanity cabinets that are tailored to fit your bathroom’s needs.
The vanity is going to be your main area for storage in this bathroom, so make sure the countertop is large enough and the cabinetry underneath is open enough to fit your needs.
Smaller Bathroom Renovations
If you’re not quite ready to take the plunge into replacing your shower or bathtub, tile or vanity, consider making smaller changes first. This can help you pick out a style for your future remodel and update your bathroom in a temporary way.
For functionality, install a multi-tier towel rack, new lighting by the mirror or in the ceiling above the shower. A new mirror can update the room as well. Consider a frameless mirror with a new shape to give your bathroom a modern feel.
Add a pop of color with a light colored accent wall, paint your cabinets or add plants.
Finally, update your cabinet handles and toilet paper roll holder.
