Design Tips to Make a Bathroom Look Larger
November 15, 2017
Do you have a small bathroom? If so, then you know the struggle of making it functional while also aesthetically pleasing. Small bathrooms can feel even smaller when you don’t know how to properly design it using paint, storage, and utilize some tricks to make your bathroom appear larger.
By “styling” your bathroom properly, you can make it feel much bigger with minimal effort and cost. One of the first things you can do to make your bathroom appear roomier is paint it. By choosing a light paint color and using it on all the walls of your bathroom, you can make it appear bigger.
For an even greater impact, use a color that works with the shower tiles and vanity so that the room is monochromatic. The goal here is to lighten the room while also eliminating contrast and distinct sections in the bathroom.
Once you have painted and have a blank slate for the walls, you can make the room feel even larger by adding lighting, and some simple decorations. If your shower has a glass door, this will make your bathroom appear larger, but if it doesn’t, hanging the shower curtains high will help make the room feel larger.
Organization, apart from painting, is one of the most important parts of making your bathroom feel bigger. Clutter will instantly make your space feel crowded. By utilizing a linen closet, medicine cabinet, or vanity storage wisely you can eliminate clutter and make your space feel open and clean.
If you are in the market to do some bathroom renovations, there are several things you can do to open up the space. By replacing a bulky vanity with a smaller, more open one, you can create the illusion of space. Open vanities look great in small bathrooms, but you will have to be careful with storage and organization or the bathroom will look cluttered.
Another trick to open up the bathroom is to use light colored tile in the shower. By also designing the shower to be curbless, the floor will have a smooth transition into the rest of the bathroom. Similarly, installing a glass door on your shower can make the room look much more open than a traditional shower curtain. These smooth transitions lead the eye nicely and help eliminate the distinct sections in your bathroom.
