Is your hall bathroom in desperate need of an overhaul? Spa-like baths are in high demand, but small spaces pose some remodeling challenges.
It all started simply enough: You wanted a nicer kitchen and master bath.
Thrilled with those results, suddenly you realize your hall bathroom looks sad by comparison.
Hoping to create a luxury experience on par with the rest of your home, you stare into your tiny hall bath and feel overwhelmed. Given the cramped layout and outdated fixtures, remodeling your hall bathroom feels like a daunting task.
This is a common home improvement problem. Fortunately, we have simple solutions to your small space dilemma. Harrisburg Kitchen and Bath Designer Andrea Woodall transformed two typical hall bathrooms into elegant retreats—with ideas anyone can use.
“Most homeowners have their heart set on a space that’s bright and open,” said Andrea. “And that’s understandable. Everyone wants a relaxing place to escape and unwind at the end of the day. However, the size of the bathroom is really the deciding factor as to whether adding luxury features will work.”
Keep the original footprint.
“The challenges were that these baths were interior rooms with no outside windows and we basically had to stay in the same footprint,” said Andrea. “Ultimately, we came up with designs that suited each home and added a fresh new look.”
Both remodels kept the original footprint of the bathrooms, with the toilet, sink, and tub/shower combo in the same place saving the homeowners plumbing relocation costs. However, keeping the same footprint doesn’t mean you can’t make your bathroom luxurious.
While the layout is important, some of most valued items are practical. Simply upgrading these features will improve your everyday routine. Think water usage, storage, and lighting.
Incorporating high-quality materials will make you and your guest feel right at home.
“The homeowners chose quality products that maintain the integrity of the rooms while adding stylish and useful updates that’ll improve day-to-day function,” said Andrea. “My favorite parts of the bathrooms are the Swanstone Shower Systems, Yorktowne Cabinetry, and Duraceramic Flooring.”
Budget-friendly materials add function and style to small spaces.
“A notable element of these projects is the use of similar products but different accessories and finishes,” added Andrea. “The updated materials breathe new life into the spaces and give each bathroom its own unique style.”
Your hall bath should be well coordinated with the rest of your home. When it comes to selecting materials for your renovation, there are more choices than ever before. It can be helpful to seek the advice of a design professional so you can make the most of your remodel.
In conclusion, older homes aren’t known for their roomy bathrooms. Specifically, hall baths are notoriously tiny and often overlooked. But don’t be intimidated. Small enhancements will reap big rewards.
Andrea can help transform your bathroom too. The first step is to set up a consultation to discuss your space. Or, you can stop by our Showroom to see our new kitchen and bath displays.
