Making the Most Out of a Small Bathroom – Making a Small Bathroom Seem Larger

Small Bathroom DesignMaybe it’s the 3rd bathroom that was added as an afterthought or maybe it’s a bathroom in a small house with small rooms. Either way, don’t sweat it, because using the proper colors and using mirrors and storage to your advantage can make your small bathroom feel larger.

Keep the Same Color Tones Throughout

Bold designs that divide walls and fixtures will make your bathroom feel smaller. When confronted with a small bathroom, make sure to keep the fixtures, cabinets, walls, AND Ceiling to the same color tone. Look for airy neutral colors that will lighten up your small room and make it feel larger.

The Larger the Mirror, the Larger Your Room Will Feel

Mirrors bring more light to your room and give an illusion of more space as you look into them. Try to have a large mirror behind the sink or opt for a large floor-to-ceiling mirror. If your room does have a window, then place a mirror adjacent to the window to bring in even more light.

Be Very Selective on Storage and How It’s Done

Keep towel racks off the walls and on shower door when possible. Since your vanity will have to be on the small side, shelving over the toilet will give you a place for toiletries and supplies. The right shelving under a pedestal sink with just the essentials will declutter your bathroom and keep it airy at the same time. Recessed cabinets and shelves between studs in your walls will help give you more room. Be as creative as possible for the best result.
