    One of the things you hear quite a bit as a Sacramento handyman is that you just cannot remodel a small bathroom. This could not be further from the truth and actually, there's quite a bit you can do with a small bathroom without a whole lot of creativity involved. You can give any bathroom a whole new look if you want to, and it doesn't matter how big or how small it is.

    The first thing to do is to get rid of the closet if there is one. Take out the storage areas, as these tend to give a cramped appearance and can be utilized for space in other ways. Choose lighter colors, which also lend a “bigger” appearance to any room. A little innovation and some elbow grease and your bathroom will look like a completely different space in no time.

    One of the first steps in redesigning any space, small, medium or large, is to create a floor plan. This helps you see what you have to work with, and helps you to visualize any changes you want to make. Think as you work, you could work with free floating cabinets, you could put in some mirrored surfaces - both of these things will help to maximize space.

    Consider removing the vanity and instead, opting for a corner sink or vanity combination. While they don't provide the counter space that the bigger vanities do, if you've got one of those single stack vanities anyway- you don't have a lot of counter space to begin with. A corner vanity paired with near by wall shelves can solve both of these problems.

    When working with your bath tub, if you absolutely must have one, you can always buy a smaller one. There are a number of small, deep tub designs that offer class while saving space. If a tub isn't a necessary for you, consider doing away with it entirely in favor of a shower.

    Choose a toilet that can be installed as closely to the wall as possible, and look for toilets with low tanks. When you do this, you can either leave the space above it free, to give the look of more space or you can add shelves or a shelving unit above to store things.

    While planning out the small bathroom remodel may seem like it takes a little more work, it really doesn't and this can help you create an uncluttered, beautiful bathroom.
