Small bathrooms are not usually dreamt about by most homeowners. A lot of homes are plagued by small, contractor-grade bathrooms, unfortunately. Even worse is when that one dinky bathroom is shared by two or more people. You can create the illusion of a larger bathroom in many ways. With this in mind, we at My-General Contractor would like to offer a few tips and recommendations to for maximizing space in a small bathroom.
Add More Lighting to Bathroom
By simply upgrading the light fixtures in the room, you can create an illusion of spaciousness in your cramped bathroom. Using what you have it is the basic principle. Usually over the vanity or sink most bathrooms will have at least one lighting fixture. Try swapping it for diffused lighting like a frosted-glass sconce instead. Casting a bright natural glow that can make the small room appear larger, the soft glow of these lights will reflect off the mirrors in the room.
How Do I Choose a Color Scheme for My Bathroom?
Try to stick with neutral colors for smaller bathrooms. By choosing bath towels and hand towels in similar shades, you can keep this palette consistent. Try choosing colors in slightly different shades of the same hue, rather than matching colors exactly. This recommended tip is to help keep a room feeling layered and personalized.
Experiment with Patterns in Bathrooms
A safe bet is white when in doubt about color. That does not mean you need to restrict your creative flair, however. An effective way to take the focus off the space’s small size, redirecting it wherever your pattern of choice is playing with patterns in a small bathroom. Scaling is the key to successfully incorporating patterns into your bathroom. Select a medium-sized pattern, repeat it, and sprinkle it sparingly throughout the space.
How Do You Layout Bathroom Floorspace?
You have got a bath and/or shower, a vanity, and a toilet, think about the bathroom trifecta for a moment. Especially if they are scaled to fit a standard-sized bathroom, the features can crowd each other in a small bathroom. A great way to avoid visually crowding the space is keeping visible floor space in mind. Some solutions can potentially include:
– Tub-to-shower conversion
– A curved vanity
– A floating sink
– A Play on Mirrors. Most bathrooms have at least a small mirror hanging, likely above the sink. Mirrors, when properly placed, can help create the illusion of a bigger space. Ornamental mirrors on the door, a well-lit mirror over the vanity, and maybe a few framed mirrors strategically placed can do the trick.
