So, you’ve decided to remodel your small bathroom. But, the limited footprint of your bathroom is getting in the way of your remodel.
While you may not necessarily alter the footprint of your bathroom, without doing some significant alterations to your home, you can still achieve a functional and stylish bathroom that appears bigger.
- Say Bye to that Tub
If you don’t take baths, then no need for the bathtub. An average-sized tub takes about 12 feet of space; taking it out opens the bathroom to other options.
- Go big with mirrors
In particular, consider installing a larger mirror. Mirrors create illusions of a larger space, reflecting more light, opening up the room, and making it airy.
- Add windows and skylights for more natural lighting
Good lighting in the bathroom is excellent, but more natural light is perfect to open up the space.
- Accessorize minimally
Pieces like artwork and bathroom rugs are great for making a bathroom feel warm and cozy. However, for a small bathroom, they can make the space feel cluttered, especially if there are too many of them.
So, dial down on some items and leave the space simple with minimal effects.
- Tone Down on Color
Talking about the minimal effect, a neutral color for the bathroom makes it open and airy, but a colorful one with bold colors makes it cluttered. So, if you love color, go for neutral colors for the wall, and perhaps add color in the form of plants or use colored towels.
- Add a clear glass shower enclosure
The shower covers the most significant part of the bathroom. A shower enclosure, in particular, ultimately limits the overall size of the bathroom.
However, that is not to mean you should take the shower enclosure out. Instead, go for a frameless glass shower enclosure, which gives the illusion of an unenclosed section. And that’s what you need to make your space appear more prominent and open.
