The half bath is common in many homes and, while these restrooms offer a significant amount of convenience, they can also feel cramped and unwelcoming, which makes updating them a perfect way to add style and comfort to your home.
Things to consider for a half-bath remodel include:
- Sinks – pedestal sinks are best in a half bath, though small vanities can sometimes work as well. This depends greatly on the amount of space you are working with
- Shower stalls – stand-alone showers come in a range of placement options. Choose one that meets both the size limitations and overall flow of your half bath. Consider adding a steam shower for optimal relaxation
- Cabinetry – recessed medicine cabinets take up no additional space but offer storage for toiletries. These cabinets often include mirrors which both enhance convenience and help produce a more spacious feel in half-baths
- Storage – slim linen cabinets, particularly wall-mounted options, can give much needed storage. Shelving can give space for some toiletries and allow for decorating flourishes such as sculptures, flowers, or whatever items speak to your unique tastes
Many bathroom fixtures come in matching sets or complementary styles. Look for cabinetry, storage, vanities, and sinks that look natural together. Taking this step helps ensure your half bath not only provides the comfort and convenience you deserve, but improves the appeal and flow of your entire home as well.
