Make the Most of Your Bathroom’s Space
October 25, 2018
The next time you plan to remodel your bathroom, consider how you’re using your space. Even if you have a lot of it, using your bathroom’s space wisely is an important part of transforming your bathroom from a water closet to an oasis.
Here are a few ideas to help maximize the space in your bathroom for your next remodeling plan.
Shelves Are Your Friends
Shelves are easy to add to a bathroom and can offer a lot more options for storage. As you think about having your bathroom remodeled, consider where you can add shelves throughout the room. Above your toilet is a great place to put some décor items, but it can also be a good place for towels to rest.
Shelves can also be installed between vanity mirrors to hold hand towels, tooth brushes, or even a nice plant. What shelving can definitely do for you, no matter where you put it, is offer you options. What you do with those options is entirely up to you.
Lighting Opens the Room Wide
Lighting is a very important component of any bathroom remodeling project. In many ways, lighting determines the overall vibe of the room. In terms of design, it can do a lot to help open the space and make a small room feel a lot bigger.
Natural Light – The warm sun shining through a window or skylight is perfect for any bathroom. The problem with natural light is that it cannot be utilized at night or when it is cloudy. Even if you use it as your bathroom’s primary source of light, it cannot be the only source.
Artificial Light – When adding lighting to your bathroom, avoid drop lights like the plague. What you need are wall sconces. Drop lights will make your bathroom feel smaller, but a series of well-curated wall lights can bring brightness into the room without closing it in.
Choose the Right Colors
Darker colors on the walls will inevitably make your bathroom seem smaller. Brighter, lighter colors will help your bathroom to feel expansive. If you want to use richer, darker colors, they are best saved for accents and accessories like towels and small details.
