Having a master bathroom with multiple sinks, a large bathtub, a walk-in
shower, and a walk-in closet is pretty much everyone's dream. Unfortunately,
most of us are stuck with a bathroom that's just big enough to stand
in. If you have a small
bathroom, don't you worry; there are some things you can do in order to make
it feel bigger.
Having open shelving in your bathroom will take a lot of the bulk away
from the walls where normal cabinets would be. These shelves can also
reduce clutter and force you to throw away things that you normally wouldn't
want to see. Just be sure to have them finished so they can withstand
the moisture that exists in bathrooms.
Dark colors in a bathroom can actually make it seem smaller. Instead,
lighten up the colors to allow the light to be reflected, rather than
it being absorbed by the dark. This can be a good chance for you to show
your creative side and try an exotic or tropical color. Make a unique
room in your home that is truly one of a kind.
When you have a shower curtain closed, you won't be able to see the
inside of the shower. While this might not affect the actual size of the
bathroom, it does make the bathroom appear smaller. By installing a glass
shower door, you'll be able to see the extra square footage of your
bathroom that is normally hidden.
Mirror on the Wall
Hanging a large mirror in the bathroom will instantly make the room feel
bigger. Not only will it trick your brain into thinking that there is
more to the room, but it will also reflect light like light colored paint
would. As an added bonus, you'll have extra mirror space for multiple
people to use in the morning.
Having a small bathroom doesn’t have to be a burden; all you have
to do is think BIG! When you decide to add some alterations to your bathroom,
don’t forget to have the fixtures and plumbing serviced if they
are leaky or malfunctioning. To learn more, or to schedule a service with
