The bathroom is the part of your home that always feels too small. Building a custom built home with and designing yourself a spacious, dream bathroom is not always in the budget but there are ways to make your bathroom feel larger without adding any more square footage. Making your bathroom feel cozy, spacious and luxurious rather than claustrophobic and depressing is possible with a little creativity.
It’s all about creating a little visual magic and adding the illusion that your bathroom is bigger than it is. Some of these tips can work anywhere in your house but they are especially helpful in the small spaces, such as your bathrooms.
Don’t over decorate
Over decorating can actually make a small space feel cluttered and overwhelming. Little Knick knacks on the counters, an abundance of wall hangings, shelves and cabinets can take that precious little space from the bathroom. Instead, use minimal decor and keep it simple. Remove unnecessary accessories that add disorder and chaos. Less is more when it comes to decorating a small bathroom.
Add more light
By brightening up the room with brighter bulbs or adding more natural light or windows, you can create the illusion that the space is bigger. Painting the walls a whiter or lighter color makes the room not only feel cleaner more open. Recessed lighting uses less ceiling space and to create an element of sophistication, wall sconces add light and warmth to the room.
Reduce oversized vanities
If the vanity takes up a large portion of the bathroom, trade it in for a smaller one. With a small scale vanity gives the room a more delicate look. By exchanging large bathroom countertops and vanities for more petite vanity solutions, you will gain extra space to open your bathroom up. Custom St. Peters marble countertops give your new vanity the luxurious elegance you’re looking for.
Opt for large mirrors
Reflecting the natural light with large mirrors will give the appearance that the room extends beyond. A beautiful mirror that extends to the ceiling not only provides an illusionary purpose but makes your bathroom feel grander. Avoid double mirrors as it chops the space up. One large mirror opens up the space. Decorating with unique mirrors in an artistic pattern on another wall is also a good idea to add depth to the space.
Get a clear, glass shower
A solid shower door or even privacy glass shower makes it feel like there is an extra wall in your bathroom. By replacing it with clear glass instead, it opens the area up, eliminating that visual barrier. It’s all about creating the illusion of space and with a more transparent shower area, your bathroom will feel larger.
Select light colors for flooring and walls
When you paint your walls and ceiling the same, lighter color, it brings a cohesive feel to the bathroom. Choose a lighter color for the flooring as well. By matching the materials from the walls to the ceiling to the floor, it creates an expansive feel. If the colors or patterns are drastically different, it chops the room up, thus you feel the small space more. Matching it all with beautiful marble countertops in St. Peters is the cherry on top to make your bathroom lovely and bright.
