Small Bathroom Renovations

Just because you have a small bathroom doesn’t mean that it can’t be renovated into a light airy space that will feel luxurious. Depending on your budget there are many ways to make your small bathroom into the bathroom of your dreams.

Paint is the cheapest and most effective way to make a dramatic change to any space. You should stay away from darker colors and instead choose a light color or white for a small room. Choosing these colors will make the room appear larger and more open. You can still use bright, bold, and darker colors for accent pieces or for the bathroom linens during your renovation. In a small space too much clutter can make one feel claustrophobic, so clear it out. You’ll be amazed at what it will do for your space.

Updating your mirror and light fixtures can go a long way. Often the bathroom counter is so small that upgrading it to a more modern and upscale material such as corian, granite, or tile is both affordable and easy to do. If your budget allows for new fixtures then wall mounted sinks and cabinets allow for great storage options and free up floor space. A shower stall rather than a full bath will give a lot more room in a small bathroom.

Larger tiles on the floor and in shower stalls can give the appearance of more space. Thin grout lines in a light color help complete the look. A lighter color on the floor will make the room seem bigger.

Finally you will be able to accessorize your bathroom in your new color scheme. Simple wall hangings such as family pictures and framed artwork can adorn the walls in whatever colors you have chosen. New towels, bath rugs, and shower curtains can tie everything together. Other accessories such as toothbrush holders, towel racks, and soap dishes can complete the look. Using curtains or blinds that let in a lot of natural light can help the room feel airy and open while maintaining privacy. A nice smelling candle in an accent color can be useful for those relaxing baths and adds a nice touch to the room.

Renovations for small bathrooms can be fairly easy and little touches go a long way. Many renovations can be done by the homeowner and can cost very little. More extensive renovations should be done by a remodeling contractor and should be fairly inexpensive for a small space. Enjoy your new space!

If you own a pet rabbit and he does not like to get picked up, then you know how difficult it could be to catch him. He sure knows that you want to bring him back to his cage, just like the last time. Rabbits are highly intelligent, and if they get the taste of having the whole house to themselves, catching them is sometimes tricky. I found 3 tricks on how to catch a rabbit in my house. They all worked for me with of course a little patience.

Attract the Rabbit: Instead of trying to chase the rabbit all over the house, try to attract it with something that you know he cannot resist, such as a fruit or a carrot. Then when he comes over to eat it, let him eat some of the treat and gently pick him up.

Make him jump in his box: Some rabbits do not like to be picked up at all. By doing it we can even injure them if they put up a good struggle. So instead, present the rabbit his litter box with a great treat he loves inside. Sit back and watch. He will eventually jump into his litter box and eat the treat. Then you can pick up the box with the rabbit inside and bring him where you want.

Make an easy cage entrance: If your cage only has an top opening, it will be harder to teach your rabbit to go back inside by himself. Make him a side door and attract him inside by again putting a great treat into the cage. By putting the cage in a room that you can put a gate on the entrance, your rabbit wont be able to run around the entire house.

Sometimes people think that putting the rabbit back in his cage as a punishment worked. But that will only teach him to hate his cage, when it should be his house. If you do that he will never want to go back to his cage by himself, so keep that in mind. Also if you are wondering how to catch rabbit in my house, try to handle him on other occasions than when you want him back in his cage.
