Got a small living space? Don’t fret: you can easily renovate your home to get big results from small spaces! It doesn’t have to break the bank, either. Here are some small renovations you can tackle that will have you breathing easy is no time. But keep in mind it’s best to hire a professional like Foster Remodeling Solutions to revitalize your home.

Solving Space Challenges

If you’re sick of everyone in your family cramming into one bathroom to get ready in the morning, or having to navigate around one too many people in your kitchen while prepping for dinner, it’s time to expand your living space to increase comfort levels. You don’t have to blow out walls and undergo a big complex construction project to expand your space. A few simple additions and touches are all that’s needed in many cases.

To update your bathroom with a modern touch, consider a small renovation project that adds a walk-in shower, a new vanity, or perhaps some heated floors for those cold mornings. Whether you want to add a master bathroom off your bedroom, or just expand your closet space, it’s easy to spruce up the appearance and function of your bathroom.

It’s time to de-clutter your vanity drawers using separators and trays with multiple compartments for storing all your cosmetics and other toiletries. Got dim lighting? Remove the old overhead and replace it with track lighting or recessed lighting for a more dramatic, textured look that provides excellent task lighting. Your bathroom could also use a new splash of color to transform the space. Try some wainscoting on the lower half of your walls for an extra dimension. Don’t take baths? Replace your old unit with a walk-in shower instead for convenience, or even a hot tub for the ultimate in pampering.


Having a tiny kitchen can get claustrophobic, especially since this is the room of the home where everyone seems to gather to talk while the cook is prepping. If you have a wall separating your kitchen from the dining room, it’s possible to knock that wall out and instantly double your space. Separate the two visually with hardwood flooring in the dining room and ceramic tiling in the kitchen. Cabinetry is a major area of concern for many homeowners. Strategic use of cabinets and counter space account for the most renovations in kitchens. But if you don’t have a big budget, don’t worry. You can do a lot as part of a typical minor kitchen remodel, which includes updating cabinet fronts and drawers, new countertops and flooring, paint job and new sink with fixtures, according to Kiplinger.

Hire an expert to help with the design and remodel phase of your small renovation for the most seamless transition possible.
