11 Proven Ideas to Fix Your Small Cramped Bathroom | Innovate Building Solutions | #BathroomRemodel #SmallBathroom #TinyHomes #ApartmentBathroom

Does your bathroom only feel a tiny bit more spacious than the last time you had the ‘pleasure’ (sarcasm intended) of ‘taking care of business’ in an airplane bathroom? Instead of enjoying your shower you’re used to banging your elbows against the shower doors. Bumping into the sides of the vanity cabinet is also something you’re all too familiar with. And we’re not even talking about the lack of storage and the risky proposition of climbing over the tub rail to take a shower. This small bathroom and tub/shower combo unit is an accident waiting to happen.

Bottom-line – your small cramped bathroom is dangerous, not stylish and a place you’d rather not have to use.

Moaning about small bathroom frustrations is simple. Figuring out what you can do about it is tough.

The question becomes, how can you fix/reinvent a small bathroom to not only be functional, but fashionable? As crazy as this may sound I believe this is not only possible, but easier than you think.

In this article I’m going to dish up 11 proven ideas to fix what today you may think is un-fixable – your tiny bath and shower. Some of these changes will involve more extensive bathroom remodeling. Others are cosmetic and lower cost. Pick and choose the ideas which make sense for you, but whatever you do, don’t ‘settle’ for your current space which is only a tiny bit better than an airport bathroom (at least in the airplane you still get one free drink and a small bag of pretzels!).

The 5 Biggest Shower Remodeling Mistakes (and How To Not Repeat Them on Your Project) | Innovate Building Solutions #Shower #Remodeling #BathRemodeling

Shower remodeling can be a pain. There are so many decisions to make and the cost of mistakes can be high. Here’s just a few decisions you’ll have to wrap your head around:

  • What type of shower base (or floor pan) is best?
  • Should you tile the walls or use a shower wall panel system?
  • Where is the best location for the drain? What is the optimal spot to put the shower valve to turn on the water?
  • Should you DIY all, some or contract out this project?

Since shower remodeling is not your ‘day job’ (and it’s a project you may do every 10 to 20 years) it can be tough to get it right the first time. How do you make sure you don’t make errors which haunt you down the road?

One way to make sure you’re on the right path is to read these top 5 shower remodeling mistakes and the strategies to not repeat them on your job. I’ve seen them way too frequently and don’t want you to fall into the same trap.
