Space Saving Ideas for Your Small Bathroom

In many cases, baths are already among the smallest rooms in a home—so what do you do when yours is especially petite? Here are a few tips & tricks on making your small space appear larger.

1.) Rethink your sink: Pedestal sinks can be attractive and have a nice vintage quality, but they’re not great when it comes to storage. You’re dealing with a basin you can barely put a bar of soap on! If you have a lot of accouterments, go with a console sink with a flat top or a converted cabinet with an under mount sink. You’ll have so much extra space, whether it’s to hang towels or store things behind doors or in drawers.

2.) Creative fittings: A wall-mounted faucet is a very smart space-saver. Not only does it give you bonus counter space, it’s actually much easier to clean.

4.) Create space you don’t have: If you can, hire a professional to cut into the walls just a bit to create a shallow recessed medicine cabinet. Or have them create a tile or marble recess in the shower, one just small enough to store your shampoo bottles.

To Buy & Renovate..

The time has come and you are ready to buy a home. Could be your first home or it could be your third, but each time is still a challenge. Buying a home involves finding the perfect space and layout that best suits you. To find a move-in ready home that perfectly suits your needs and standards is very hard to come by and in the miracle that you do find this, you will sure pay for it!

This prompts many people to factor the option of buying and renovating into their decision-making when searching for homes on the market. Buying and renovating opens many doors and can fulfill so many wants and desires that buying a move-in ready cannot fulfill.

The buying and renovating option; however, does come with it’s list of commands. For one, you will need a well-experienced real estate broker to find those homes on the market that fall within your budget with taking a renovation into account. Along with a broker, you will need a designer. The designer will be able to see passed what exists and will be able to determine if the skeleton of the home has potential for what you are looking for in your new home.

Once you have purchased your new home, you will now begin your renovation process. Your next team will consist of your designer and an architect. Plans will be drawn up. Now, all your wants and custom ideas are on paper and you begin to have this wonderful vision on what your life will be like in your new home.

The last and final link on your buying and renovating chain is hiring a team who will not only meet your expectations but exceed them. This team is your General Contractor. Our team at Capital Craftsmen have performed renovations in some of the most high-end buildings in Manhattan and have also built custom homes from the ground up in the Hamptons and Montauk. We are the team that will turn your designer’s renderings and architect’s 2-dimensional drawings into your new reality.
