Looking for small bathroom remodel ideas? Instead of the same old white paint and tile to make a small bathroom appear larger, consider remodeling with wood. Wood and wood accents take the focus off the bathroom’s size. Wood also makes a bathroom feel luxurious, like stepping into a spa any time you want.
Small Bathroom Remodel Ideas: Simple Luxury
Unpainted hardwood in a bathroom automatically brings a spa-like atmosphere to mind. A simple, removable wooden shelf across your tub can change your bathroom’s ambiance.
Customizing a bathroom vanity is one of the best small bathroom remodel ideas. Hardwoods transform the simplest vanity into a work of art.
If your countertop is crowded, replace it with a longer wood countertop. This makes use of previously wasted space and gives you a place underneath to stash your trash can or hamper.
Wood Accents and Stylish Storage
The smallest bathrooms can usually accommodate a short accent wall between the vanity and toilet. A wood accent wall may only be the height of the countertop, but it will make the bathroom feel significantly bigger.
Keeping a small bathroom neat is essential. Wooden shelves within reach of a clawfoot tub or other tub with rounded edges will help you eliminate clutter.
Floating wood shelves in a corner can maximize your wall space. Shelves also make an attractive storage space for your towels, magazines and a decorative mirror. Multiple mirrors, even small ones, make a room seem bigger. A hanging mirror by the door with a custom wood frame is convenient, making it a popular decorator’s trick for small bathrooms.
Sapele mahogany looks good in a white bathroom. It can be warm medium brown or bright amber. If you want to paint, look at very light woods like maple or reclaimed chestnut. Maple especially looks spectacular paired with bold or bright colors.
Reclaimed wood already has the distressed look that many people want in their bathroom. To maximize the effect of your colors, choose a clear bowl sink.
You can have a wood floor in a small bathroom. Again, darker woods look better with matching vanities and white walls. A warm, light wood like reclaimed pine on the floor and a warm color on the walls make the room feel larger. Many of our clients prefer warm color in the bathroom to stark white.
For years, there’s been a myth that wood doesn’t perform well in a bathroom because it isn’t water resistant. Although most of the wood materials we use are naturally perform well in areas with moisture, the custom woodworkers at Maryland Wood Countertops can add a waterproof finish to any wood.
