You can complain about it, but you can’t avoid it. You may be asking, what is ‘it?’ ‘It’ is your cramped bathroom which makes you want to pull your hair out. It’s makeup you’re rustling through drawers to find. Its towels jammed into your linen closet. It’s grab bars which belong in your local hospital but are staring you in the face. It’s plastic shower caddies which resemble Dollar Store ‘specials’ – which in fact they were.

Your bathroom products (i.e. accessories, vanities, storage ‘systems’ – if you can call them that) are a source of frustration. They’re ugly, unsafe and uninviting.

The question is, what can you do about it? Can you transform your not-so-hot bathroom (or at least spruce it up) with better designed (and better made) bath and shower products? Can you create a time-efficient place to get ready during your morning scramble (while managing the craziness of getting kids off to school and yourself ready for work)? Can you organize and accessorize your bathroom so it’s actually a room you enjoy using (now that would be a Ripley’s Believe it Or Not moment)?

While this sounds impossible, it’s not as crazy as you may think IF you use the right products in the right places.

Not sure what those ‘magic’ products are? Well – you’ll take a journey to learn 9 bath and shower ideas in the article below. We’ll dig deep (if you dare) into your vanity drawers, linen closets and dare-I-say-it – shower enclosures – to get practical ideas to ‘spruce up’ the seemingly ‘un-spruce-able’ room – your bathroom.

You’re not quite sure how and when you ‘evolved’ into ‘adulting’, but boy has it hit you now. With a baby on the way you and your spouse knew your tiny apartment in the city wasn’t going to cut it. It was time to buy your first home.

However, with few new homes on the market and prices higher than you’d like, your vision of the perfect turnkey home (no remodeling required) in a walkable neighborhood turned out to be the impossible dream. You adjusted your expectations and found an “OK” home which needed some work.

You took the big step- bought the home and signed soooooo many forms you figured the real estate and mortgage industries must not have got the memo about minimalism. You were all smiles turning the key for the first time entering your new home. You’re also proud of yourself for not posting another ‘we just moved into our new home’ selfie on the front porch like so many of your friends.

After getting settled in you now know its time to update your time-warped bathroom, or you and your husband might kill each other when getting ready in the morning. The challenge becomes how can you get a functional space which is fashionable while not blowing your budget (after all your new baby isn’t going to feed himself)?

If only you had unlimited funds and could afford the sleek designs, you see in Architectural Digest or while watching The Properties Brothers (you think – if only the Properties Brothers would choose our home for their next show. A nice dream. Probably not going to happen).

The question becomes how can you create an updated bathroom in a small space without a big budget?

In this article my goal is to present 7 affordable bathroom design ideas you can use to create an updated bathroom in an older home with a smaller bathroom. At the end I’d love to know which ideas you think will help you the most and/or specific questions you have about your bathroom remodeling project.

7 Product Ideas to Organize Your Bathroom

An organized bathroom can certainly be a challenge (and believe me I know this since my wife Rose and I have 17 and 21 year old sons who believe the bathroom floor is the place to dump ALL of their clothes and the counter is a place to keep ALL products laying out). I’m not up to the task of figuring out how to keep 2 young men more organized ….yet….but I do have some ideas for you for products to use in a bathroom remodeling project to keep your space neat, organized and reduce your time in cleaning (even though I know that’s everyone’s favorite choir….I say sarcastically).

Let’s take a look at 7 product ideas to better tame this beast of a room (AKA the bathroom):

5 Design Tips for a Small Bath Remodel in 2015

5 Design Tips for a small bathroom remodel

In the late 1990’s and early 2000’s home building was about supersizing everything. McMansions with large rooms, vaulted ceilings in foyers, big living rooms and dining rooms were all the rage. The average size home in the 1950’s of 983 square feet had become bloated to 2,434 square feet by 2005.

As we get ready to celebrate the new year in 2015 trends have changed significantly. The average size of the home is now decreasing (this can be seen in the popularity of the book The Not So Big Home by Sarah Susanka). Features which have contributed to homes becoming smaller include tighter access to financing, improved design, and the desire for more green and sustainable spaces.

As homes are shrinking bathrooms are getting smaller as well – but this is not to imply style and function are becoming victims of this down-sizing process – quite the contrary actually. Learn below 5 fun and intriguing design tips to make a smaller bathroom more stylish and better performing!
