Renovating a bathroom often means incurring a huge expense, but more importantly, it is a difficult and messy proposition in a home that you already live in. While considerable money is spent on the functional aspects like the plumbing, electricals, tiles and sanitary fittings — lack of space is often a major constraint, especially in many apartments.

There are a few ways you can work around such limitations but the first aspect is always the layout. It is important — particularly in the case of a small bathroom—to focus on the best possible configuration, keeping in mind the visual aspects and simultaneously cater for various functional requirements.

In terms of the cabinetry it is best to choose something that complements the entire setting. Options vary from frosted glass panels to wood. Interesting handles add an extra pizzazz. In a small space, it is best to try and make the cabinetry merge with the walls as much as possible –- rather than accentuate the lack of space.


There are many options available for countertops and glass can be used for partitioning. Light plays a very important role in making even the smallest bathroom seem large. Using different kinds of lighting elements is a key factor in completing the design circle.
