Bathrooms can seem like an afterthought in terms of home design. They’re small, sometimes cramped, and not really built for more than one person at a time. Once you add in a toilet, sink, and steam shower, there really isn’t a lot of room to move around. Granted, I doubt there are too many people who step into the bathroom with the intention of walking around for exercise.
So, I understand why bathrooms are typically small. But, there’s no reason why it has to look small. Renovating isn’t always an option. But, implementing some of these tips below should go a long way in making that small space look larger than it is.
Color. Choose light (or simply white!) colors for all fixtures and walls. Light colors reflect the light making the room look larger and brighter.
Light. Remove heavy curtains and blinds. If you’re worried about privacy, consider installing textured glass. It will let in all the natural sunlight available, but block visibility. If you want some kind of window covering, choose lightweight and light-colored fabrics that allow the natural sunlight to stream in.
Mirrors. Even small spaces can support large mirrors. You’ll find that the mirror reflects the light and tricks the eye making the room look larger.
Floating furniture. Choose bathroom vanities and sinks that attach to the wall. As long as there’s space along the bottom of the walls, your bathroom feel spacious.
