A Garden and Outdoor Patio Go Hand-in-hand

I love to garden, and when my family moved into a new home, I was very excited at the thought of getting to plan a brand-new garden! We moved to a completely different climate, so there was a learning curve to finding out which flowers and plants would thrive in the new location. Thankfully, the project was a success, but I realized that our family didn't get to enjoy the beauty of our garden without an outdoor living space to lounge on in the backyard. We soon found a local contractor with amazing ideas on how we could turn out yard into a beautiful, outdoor oasis. I enjoyed helping him plan and watching him build our new backyard patio, and I actually learned a lot during the process. I am eager to share what I have learned with others on my new blog!

3 Ways To Make A Tiny Bathroom More Spacious

There are many reasons that a person decides to remodel a bathroom. Maybe you want to add value to your home, change the color scheme of things, or need to find ways to make the bathroom more spacious. If you are trying to make a small bathroom look larger and feel less cramped, there are some changes you can make.

Here, you will get a few examples of changes you can make in smaller bathrooms to make them feel much larger than they really are:

Utilize the Walls

Interior walls do not need the insulation that exterior walls do. Because of this, you can utilize the space between the studs to use as shelving. Remove the drywall or paneling on the walls, and choose your finishing materials. You could paint, tile, panel or put wood on the backside of the shared wall and sand and paint or stain the studs to give it a finished look.

Once the walls have a finished look, install small shelves between the studs. This will give you space for storage of small toiletries or give you additional space to add decorations to the bathroom. No matter what you decide to use the additional space for, it will make the bathroom appear much larger than it was.

Create an Illusion with the Shower

The tub and shower in the bathroom can take up quite a bit of space. If you do not use the bathtub often, consider removing the tub and installing tile work on the walls in the bathroom that continues into the shower. Install frame-less glass shower doors to make it appear that the bathroom continues beyond where the shower begins.

Choose Open Cabinetry

Rather than having enclosed cabinetry under your sink and vanity, choose a style that is open with shelving underneath. This will allow the space of the bathroom to continue beyond the frame of the cabinetry and create a more open and roomy look.

Note: For very small bathrooms, pedestal sinks can be used. These eliminate the need for any under-sink cabinetry and can really open up the space.

Your small bathroom does not have to feel cramped and confined. You can change the appearance of the size just by making a few adjustments to the way that it is set up. Talk with your bathroom renovation specialist about any techniques and suggestions that he or she may have that will help you open up the small bathroom and make it appear spacious.
