It’s true that small bathrooms can feel intimate and cosy, but they can also feel depressing and claustrophobic at the same. Unless you live in a custom-built house with a spacious bath, you probably wish your private space were larger. Fortunately, there are ways to make do with the minimal square footage you might have. By following a few ideas, you can transform your small bathroom into a cosy retreat.
Make a big splash in your small-sized bath by following these design ideas:
Show Some Legs
Cabinet doors visually weigh down a small bath. If you want to keep things light and airy, install a furniture-style vanity. Vanities and cabinets with long post legs are perfect for pint-size baths, as they don’t look too heavy. Make up for the limited storage space by adding a clothes basket under the sink area.
Let There Be Light
Make your bathroom feel bigger and bolder by bringing in some light. Install recessed lighting on the ceiling to highlight workspaces, such as the powder area or the sink. Countertop lamps and wall sconces can add warmth, while accent lighting can bring attention to a decorative element. More expensive alternatives for improving the amount of light in the room include skylights, larger windows, and solar tubes.
Create an Illusion
Create an illusion of a larger space using glass and mirrors. Install glass walls to separate the bath from the toilet area. Ditch the shower curtain by adding a frameless glass shower screen in one corner of your bathroom to create an ultimate space-saver illusion. Use mirrors to create a focal point and illuminate dark areas. Installing a large mirror that extends from the ceiling to the floor on one wall is a great way to create an illusion of an extended space.
Light, smart storage, and the right type furniture can all help make a room appear bigger, but nothing can extend the look of a space better than glass and mirrors.
