How To Maximize Space With Your Bathroom Remodel

Even though they are a sanctuary for many people, bathrooms are often one of the smallest rooms in our home. If you’re planning on remodeling your bathroom, chances are good that you want to maximize your space and transform it into an efficient oasis of relaxation.

We have a few tips to help you unlock the potential of your bathroom remodel and maximize every square foot.


One of the fastest and easiest ways to increase the space available in your bathroom is to install a corner shower or a corner tub. Their design will help utilize the corners of your bathroom, freeing up space in the middle of the room and along other walls.


If you’re limited in the amount of space you can fill outward in your bathroom, then it might be time to start thinking upward! Going vertical with cabinets or shelves is a great way to squeeze every last inch out of your space.

Floor space may be limited even for a vertical cabinet in your bathroom, so look for spots on the wall where you can go vertical with shelves. Consider installing floating shelves above the toilet or install a towel rack with a shelf on top to store extra linens.


Depending on the direction your bathroom door swings, installing a sliding, barn-style door may give you some extra space.

Sliding doors add a sleek and modern touch to your home (which may fit your new bathroom remodel style). They’re also a more user-friendly option for people with mobility issues like elderly family members.


As you’re remodeling your bathroom, think about clever places to add storage like a recessed niche in your shower. If you already have cabinets or a vanity in your bathroom, think about custom options to add to them like pull-out storage under the sink. Take a good look around your bathroom before your remodel and look for anywhere you can add hooks, baskets, or shelves to help increase your storage space.
