A Design Discussion hosted by Lisa Smith of Interior Design Factory and

More often than not we are tasked with working within the constraints of an existing space.  Bathroom remodeling lands us in working with smaller spaces, 60 square feet or less for this do-it-all room.   How do we get more from less?

Building the luxurious dream bathroom from scratch is ideal but reality and budgets interrupt to leave us charged with remodeling existing bathrooms without lots of floorspace.   Real bathrooms for real people, where money matters which is our focus for today’s chat.
