Design tricks to make tiny bathrooms look bigger
It’s fun to look at magazine pictures of gleaming bathrooms the size of airplane hangars. But if you’re like most homeowners, your washroom can barely fit a sink and toilet, let alone a Learjet.
How can you make the most of those rooms?
There’s plenty you can do—from choosing the right color palette to employing visual tricks—to make even the smallest space look magazine-worthy. Here are some suggestions from Houzz:
Choose white on white: White tile, white paint, and a white vanity can do wonders for visually enlarging a space. “This noncolor-color naturally recedes, making the space look bigger,” notes Houzz. Use varying textures to keep the design from appearing monotonous.
Install a floating vanity: This choice allows for storage beneath the sink, while also giving the bathroom an airy look. Additionally, “in a very small space, having more room to plant your feet can make a big difference,” notes Houzz.
Go minimal: Don’t choose the largest vanity possible. A smaller vanity will “make the area feel less stuffed and thus roomier.”
Replace a shower curtain with glass: This makes the entire square footage of the room visible, opening things up considerably. Houzz also suggests homeowners consider replacing the bathtub with a shower stall. “They are easier to get in and out of, and removing the tub eliminates a lot of bulk that eats up precious room.”
Use bright lighting: Consider multiple light sources in different locations. This will brighten the room and eliminate shadows that close in the space.
