Looking for Simple Bathroom Remodeling Ideas?

When we think about bathroom remodeling, we often think big. Soaker tubs, dual sinks, large counters, and plenty of storage space. But sometimes the best bathroom remodeling ideas come in smaller packages, like this bathroom remodel in Wheaton.


Newlyweds at the time, Kirsten & Denis decided it was time to bite the bullet and settle in the “burbs.” They found a gently loved home in Wheaton and decided to make it their own. While the home needed some updating, they felt the quiet Wheaton neighborhood was perfect. They knew could take their time remodeling, while also enjoying their new home.


But as with all home renovation dreams, you have to start somewhere. While small in size and dated in appeal, they had vision for their bathroom. They knew it had potential to be so much better! The Lellbach Builders team tore everything out, leaving just four walls as the guide, and the remodeling adventure began.

The first priority was to add light to the dark space. A morning shower does little to wake you up without some sunlight. A uniquely placed horizontal window was added to the shower wall. Allowing daylight in, it brightened up the small space instantly.


A white wall hung vanity with clean lines enhanced the feeling of spaciousness in this small bath. Large scale rectangular tiles created a feeling of height in the space. Installed vertically on the shower wall, they span up from the floor, lengthening the feel of the wall area.


Adding bamboo floor planks horizontally on the walls created a warm texture against the understated tile. Chrome finished faucets and plumbing fixtures brought just enough shine to the space to add sparkle and reflect the light.
