Anyone can agree that small bathrooms are the worst! Feeling cramped up in a place where you should be relaxed and at ease is not quite ideal. However, if your home or apartment wasn’t blessed with enough space in the bathroom department, there are some things that you might want to try in order to improve the situation. Not having a large bathroom does not necessarily meant that you cannot have a bathroom that looks large. Here are some things you might want to try in order to make your tiny bathroom look bigger.
One of the first things you should consider is changing the color scheme of your bathroom. If you are dealing with a really small space then a single color should do the trick. Although two toned or even multiple toned bathrooms are in vogue, you should avoid this trend, as it makes the place look a lot more cluttered than it has to be. If you really cannot resist the urge of using two colors, try using two shades, the lighter one for the ceiling and the darker one on the walls.
One other advice regarding color is to always try and use bright and warm colors. They can really turn things around for the better and make any bathroom seem a bit bigger, regardless how small it might be.
- Mirrors and lights
It’s no secret that mirrors have this amazing property of making a room look bigger. This is exactly why you should invest in a large mirror and try to place it somehow equidistant to the corners of the wall and the source of light. This way, you make sure that most of the light bounces back in the room making it seem even bigger.
And speaking about lighting, you should check that your bathroom is properly lit and doesn’t have any dark corners that might make it seem tiny. The better the light, the bigger the space!
First off, you should know that a bathtub in a tiny bathroom is an unforgivable mistake. If you are running low on space, you need a shower cabin and you need one made out of glass. Shower curtains only cut your bathroom in half and make it seem like a miniature version of a regular bathroom. However, a glass shower cabin is more than ideal. If you share the bathroom with other people and are concerned that you might have someone walk in on you while you shower then you will be pleased to learn that there are certain shower cabins that turn opaque once the doors are closed.
Other than that, you might want to consider avoiding patterns (or, better said, patterns that are too intricate) and properly manage your storing space. It would be great if you could focus on storing/ most of your toiletries in the inferior part of the walls (under the sink or right next to the toilet) and leave the upper part bare, as it creates the illusion of an open space.
