The size and dimensions of a space can limit the scope of any remodeling project, from to basement remodeling. A particular challenge that often comes up with basement remodeling is dealing with low ceilings. In today’s post, JLR Home Renovation discusses the obstacles that this can cause and provides some tips.
Bath and kitchen remodeling require a lot of planning and attention to detail to ensure success. Here are a few do’s and don’t to keep in mind as you begin to plan for a powder room renovation project.
Do: Focus on the Necessities
When you’re redesigning a small powder room for your home, focus on the necessities. During the design process, start with the important items such as the toilet, sink and vanity. Once you’ve decided where these things will go, you can then move on to focusing on the other fixtures such as the hand towel bar and toilet paper holder.
Don’t: Add Storage
Don’t focus too much on storage when designing your powder room, as this isn’t the place to store extra supplies. To conserve space, consider skipping the traditional sink with cabinetry and opt for an elegant pedestal or wall-mounted sink instead.
Do: Use Quality Statement Materials
In limited spaces like a powder room, statement decor is important. Consider investing in smaller quality items like an elegant soap dispenser or towels with bold patterns. To bring your powder room design plans to fruition, don’t hesitate to turn to JLR Home Renovation, the pros in bathroom remodeling and replacement windows installation services.
Don’t: Make It Too Busy
The worst thing you can do design-wise in a cramped space is to make it feel busy. When designing your powder room, avoid cramming too many things into the room and focus on a single focal point instead. By doing so, your space will look clean and sophisticated.

Even a simple home remodeling project like painting the kitchen requires making a lot of choices, from the color of paint to the brand, and of course the contractor you hire to do the job. With more complex projects like kitchen remodeling, there are so many choices homeowners have to make that it can feel downright overwhelming, leading to a kind of paralysis.
Called choice paralysis or the paradox of choice, this conundrum happens when humans are faced with a lot of choices more than they know what to do with. Today, JLR Home Renovation shares a guide on how to cut out what doesn’t matter and focus your efforts.
Identify Your Style
Start by thinking about how you’d describe your home to a stranger. Is it modern? Is it traditional? Or does it have both elements? By thinking of the recurring motif or theme in the home, you can eliminate several design ideas that don’t make sense in your current setup.
If you’re looking to expand your home, you will have more varied choices, but if you’re making do with what you have, the size of your home will necessarily limit what you can change. Look for ideas, photos or suggestions that are similar to the room you will remodel. Alternatively, if you want to make a space look bigger, investing in replacement windows can be a great place to start.
Of course, no home improvement project will happen if you don’t have the budget—both time and money—for it. Be realistic about how much you can afford, upfront and in the long run. If you’re looking to sell your home down the line, you may want to start with projects that recoup the most investment.
