Small Bathroom Makeovers: Storage and Design - Handyman

New Flooring and Tiling

Small bathroom makeovers need not be expensive. You can install your own bathroom tiles for the fraction of the cost that bathroom experts will charge you.

1. First, you need to purchase enough tiles for your bathroom floor, accounting for any corners and spaces.

2. Then, you need to mix thin-set mortar to the appropriate consistency or use adhesives that are recommended by the manufacturer.

3. Spread the adhesive or thin-set mortar on the bathroom floor, beginning with the center, and lay the tiles, again, beginning with the center.

4. Make any cuts that you need with the tiles using a wet-cut tile saw.

5. Allow the tiles to dry overnight or as recommended by the adhesive manufacturer.

Cabinets and Storage Space

These tips will show you how to select the proper bathroom cabinets that are right for you.

1. The first step is to know how to use your space. For example, if you have a hot tub and you like taking long baths, you might like to have a cabinet with lots of space for towels and a television set.

2. Next, you have to do your homework. Flip through design books or magazines and get inspiration from what you see. There are lots of design options out there, and you can get ideas from practically any bathroom design book.

3. The last thing to remember is, you don’t need to break the bank. Cabinets don’t need to be that expensive. You can look for cheaper alternatives by sourcing for materials that are not that expensive.


Small bathroom makeovers that require new shelves are not something that will cost you a lot. Shelves give you additional storage space and won’t cost you a bundle.

Shelves are ideally placed beside cabinets where they can easily be reached. They are ideally made of wood or metal, whichever best complements your bathroom décor. Shop around for the best shelving materials and you can install them yourselves.
