It seems that everyone wishes to have a larger bathroom. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen without making major changes to the house.
If you play around with the layout and remodel a little, you can make it look like you have a much larger bathroom without moving a single wall.
Let’s talk about several design tips to implement in your small bathroom. The goal is to make your small bathroom feel bigger, brighter, more functional, more stylish, and downright fabulous with minimal bathroom renovation effort. If you’re looking for small bathroom ideas that will make the whole space
Wall-to-Wall Mirror Is a Good Choice
You can make your small bathroom appear larger by mirroring the entire length of a wall. The reflection will help visually expand space and double the impact of color or pattern in the space. If you don’t have a window, the mirror acts like a window furthering the effect that light has in the room. Make sure you specify the largest mirror that fits the wall or custom cut a mirror to install. I love the look of stone or tile on the bottom half of the bathroom and a full mirror on the upper half of one wall. Use frameless mirrors as they give the illusion of more space than framed ones.
Making A Small Bathroom Bigger By Having Fun With Colors
Let’s find out how to use color in your small bathroom to make it look larger. The goal here is to keep it very low contrast and keep the color palette light bright and airy or deep, dark, and moody.
Think white when you’re painting a small bathroom to make it look bigger. It will make the bathroom look classic and clean, despite its small size,
Make the ceiling white, and make the floor a different color from the walls. Select larger tiles with lighter colors for the walls. Paint the trim white around the windows. You’ll get more highlights and better reflections.
Clear Glass Frameless Shower Enclosure
Most of the bathroom space is taken up by the bathtub and shower. An enclosure around them usually adds to the size. It’s not feasible to remove the enclosure, so the next best thing is to make the enclosure transparent. There’s something incredibly sleek about a transparent enclosure that feels lighter than a framed one.
Frameless shower and tub enclosures are made of thick tempered glass held together at the corners. Because there aren’t any frames on the glass, the enclosure is as invisible as it gets.
Add More Lighting
Bathrooms don’t get much natural light, so it’s especially crucial to have good lighting to make them look big and open. Additionally, good lighting is essential for shaving, applying makeup, and more in a bathroom. Adding a grid of ceiling lights, as well as sconces or a contemporary edge-lighted mirror will reduce shadows and make the room feel more open. Add lampshades on the side of the mirrors to add to the overhead lighting. Reflecting the soft light from the mirrors will make the space seem bigger.
Opt for wall-hung fixtures and fittings
YYou can mount bigger fixtures on your walls if you don’t have a lot of floor space. Typically, fixtures and fittings in bathrooms are freestanding or mounted on the floor, which takes up a significant amount of floor space. However, most of the room’s fixtures – from the toilet and basin to accessories like toilet brush holders and toilet roll holders – are now available in wall-mounted versions. If you have a truly tiny bathroom, use the extra floor space for storage baskets. Lifting everything off the ground creates extra space and makes it seem bigger.
