We all love a good spacious bathroom. But when it comes to some houses, bathrooms might be a little smaller than average. If you are looking to make changes to your bathroom, then keep in mind some of my favourite space enhancing tips to re-invent your bathroom.
Choose Smaller fixtures
Choosing smaller fixtures help your bathroom to avoid feeling crowded and over full. This might seem like an obvious choice, but trust me when I say that it’s not something that everything thinks about.
Make great use of space you have by using smaller versions of standard showers, baths, sinks, and cabinets. There are so many different styles available in smaller versions, so you are bound to find something that you want.
The colour of your bathroom can also make a big difference in how big it feels, and one of my favourite ways to keep a bathroom feeling fresh and spacious is a coastal theme. Using the cool blues of the ocean in combination with whites and creams can lend a spacious feeling to any bathroom.
This one is so great because its so easy to do, a new coat of paint or some new towels can be as easy as it gets to have your bathroom feeling fresh and new.
Use Big Mirrors
Adding an extra large mirror is one of the best tricks for small bathrooms. I find that when you add a big mirror, it gives the illusion of more space and boosts the amount of light in the bathroom.
More mirror space also means less fighting over who gets to use the bathroom first; everyone can now do their hair at the same time!
Make Use of Clear Glass
When it comes to glass in the bathroom, I would recommend clear over frosted glass any day. Frosted glass can feel very closed off and can limit the space available in your bathroom.
I think that using clear glass gives the illusion of space and allows you to make the most of the room.
Use a Bold Print
Large scale and bold prints can help space feel more open and trick the eye into believing that there is more space than there is. It’s a great design idea that requires minimal work, especially if you have another half that is particularly handy with wallpaper. Use lighter tones with bold accents for the best results.
Storage is Important
Small bathrooms can feel full, really quickly. This is the reason that I would recommend optimising storage space so that you can have a clutter free bathroom.
Install bathroom cabinets and under sink cupboards wherever possible to keep the bathroom space fresh and clean. This will ultimately help it to feel bigger.
Get as Much Light as Possible
If it’s an option for your bathroom, then I would aim to extend the windows to allow as much natural light in as possible. Lighter rooms feel bigger, and it means that you get more of a fresh air feeling into your small bathroom.
Use a Shower Curtain or Partial Glass Door
Permanent shower doors can make space feel more enclosed so opt for a shower curtain or door that can be pulled back or doesn’t take up all the space.
A solid or immovable wall feels very permanent and takes up most of space and can make the room feel segmented, which is the opposite of what you want when your bathroom space is at a premium.
Maximise towel space
Use a towel rack that has space for multiple towels and that can be easily added to the back of a door or the wall. Bonus points if you can keep clean towels on top for extra storage.
This can be a great way to make the most of your space with intelligent storage options. It also has the bonus of creating a way for you to show off your perfectly coordinated towels.
If you are looking to make your bathroom feel a bit more spacious, then I hope these tips have helped out, and you can transform your small bathroom into something that feels a little bigger.
