6 Ways To Make A Small Bathroom Look Bigger

A very common question we are faced with is: "How to make a small bathroom look bigger?" The lack of square footage, limited natural light, and number of fixtures to squeeze in make a small bathroom one of the more challenging spaces to decorate. But done right, the whole room can seem brighter and more spacious. How do we achieve this without breaking the bank? Here are some ways you to turn cramped bathrooms into your next favorite room!

1. Opt for a Glass Shower Door

If you’re starting your small bathroom design from scratch, consider scrapping the curtain entirely. Its also recommended for glass shower doors in a small bath, as it will help to open up the space.

2. Keep Your Colors Light and Bright

A wood floor and vanity give this city bathroom a warm and serene feeling. A soft mint-green hue reflects natural light from the window. The space surrounding the freestanding tub makes the room feel more open, as does the lightweight curtain fabric, which allows maximum light to enter.

3. Or Incorporate Multiple Mirrors

If mirroring an entire wall won’t work in your space, you can just add multiple mirrors to one wall. The reflection of light and pattern (and, sometimes, that open door) will do the same good work a window does.

4. Backlight the Mirror

“This can be a chic and modern way to amplify light,” James says, “if you do not have room for sconces or simply want a more minimalistic look.”

5. Use a Ledge to Create Space

Another major space saver? A narrow ledge along the entire length of this bathroom is the perfect perch for a mirror, toothbrush, and other essentials.

6. Get Creative With Storage

In cramped rooms, any open space is an opportunity. Take the area underneath the sink as an example, which is just the right size for a stack of artfully rolled towels.
