Is Bigger Really Better?

Bathroom Renovation Size Options

There are countless resources online for making a small bathroom look bigger, so the bigger the bathroom, the better, right? Residents of Leawood, Lenexa, Prairie Village, and Kansas City are always asking advice – professional and friendly – about expanding their bathrooms, and their questions almost always have to do with the size of their current bathroom. Most think that a bigger bathroom is preferable to a smaller one.

At Unlimited Contracting, we don’t necessarily think so. A small bathroom can have a lot of great advantages in its own right. Keep reading to find out a few of them!


  • You could use the extra space in your master bedroom instead.


If you’re doing a multi-room renovation, don’t waste space on the bathroom! Get the extra square footage in a place it will make a difference, like the bedroom or closet, rather than the master bath, where you don’t spend a lot of quality time.


  • Remodeling is less expensive.


Basic math says the smaller the space, the fewer materials you’ll need. You can choose a fixture to feature that will make a big impact. For example, replace the rarely used tub with a tiled, walk in shower or wet room. Most homeowners only renovate once in their lifetime, but with a smaller budget, you could update your bathroom more than once.


  • A small bathroom encourages togetherness.


Maybe you don’t see this as a benefit, but you’ll look back one day and remember fondly getting ready for work or a special night out elbow to elbow with your significant other. You will value the quality time spent at the mirror together and appreciate the extra time for conversation.

While bathroom renovations are some of the most common, you don’t have to make the room bigger in order to remodel it effectively and attractively. Your design skills will be tested with a small bathroom but the results can be stunning! Think about functionality and ergonomics in your small bathroom, but don’t lose sight of the design elements you love. Color, textures, and eye-catching fixtures can all be incorporated into small bathrooms.

Of course, there are some instances when you probably should upgrade to a larger bathroom. In these cases, bigger is definitely better:


  • You have a growing family


Especially if you only have one bathroom in the house, it’s pretty much inevitable that you’re going to want a bigger bathroom eventually. Children grow up fast, and soon you’ll be sharing your single bathroom with teenagers who are as big as you!


  • Your needs have changed


If you have mobility concerns or are bound to a wheelchair, these situations may warrant a bathroom expansion as well. This is also true if you are caring for an elderly loved one.

If you have a small bathroom and are thinking of remodeling, talk to Unlimited Contracting before you do anything drastic – like knocking out a wall! We have solutions for bathroom renovations of every size!
