Even the smallest bathroom remodel is costly. Because the cash investment in a proper remodel is substantial, you want to get it right the first time. At Classic Mirror and Glass we always design our frameless showers to endure constant use. Pick the wrong company to do the work and you may regret it in 10 years.
Fortunately, many of the modern design trends being used in bathrooms today will save you a lot of space in a small bathroom. Use a large-tile format for the floors, you will be surprised how good it will look even in a tiny room. We always recommend larger-dimension tiles, such as 16 or 24 square inches. This will give you a much more fluid look.
Our frameless glass shower enclosures are undoubtably the slimmest option and can fit very nicely into a small bathroom. At Classic Mirror and Glass we custom build all of our framless showers to fit perfectly into your space. For stability we use a thicker glass for our framless shower doors, a framless shower door panel can weigh 80 to 100 pounds depending on the thickness. A framless shower enclosure will save you from having to put in a bulky bathtub and the sleek, slim design will make the room feel much larger.
When designing a small bathroom you might want to consider a slim or tankless toilet. Removing the back from a toilet can save you as much as eight and a half inches or so. A tankless toilet does not rely on a tank of water to clear the bowl, instead they get their water from a separate line at a high enough pressure to wash down any waste in a single flush.
Of course let’s not forget the bathroom sink! Often in a small bathroom, the smallest sink is the best choice. Corner sinks, wall-hung or pedestals are the ideal choice. There are a number of designs out there that are perfect for small spaces and offer a sharp contemporary design.
Lastly, the mirror that you place in a small bathroom can really tie the room together. The bathroom mirror is the kind of decorating detail that should receive far more attention than it does. After all, you look at it every day. It provides a critical function for daily grooming but is also a relatively easy way to inject a dose of personality and style into even the most clinically stark bathroom. Typically you want your bathroom mirror to be long enough for everyone to see themselves while not being wider than the sink or vanity it hangs above. Hanging a mirror is more like an art and Classic Mirror and Glass specializes in custom fit mirrors that will work perfectly in a bathroom of any size.
