Tips on How to Make Your Smaller Bathroom Appear Much Larger

Bathroom Renovation

While many of us dream of having the big, fancy, and luxurious bathroom that we see in movies, that may not be possible for the majority of us that have smaller homes and smaller bathrooms. However, that does not mean it is the absolute end for us. We can still take the most simple and understated bathrooms into the next level, so they live up to their full potential.

The following are a few tips you can use to make your smaller bathroom appear much larger than it actually is:


Embrace an All-White Aesthetic


The white on white look is good at creating the impression of a bigger bathroom. White is a color that reflects light instead of absorbing it. This makes the room appear bigger when you pair the white walls with other white fixtures such as the tile and sink choices.

Having all white finishes also creates a cohesive look for the space. To add some color and personality, you can always play around with different textures such as the molding or the pieces you include in the space. Doing so will also provide a bit more in the way of personality and character.


Floating Vanities to Maximize Floor Space


In a smaller bathroom, you may find that there isn’t much space to maneuver. The lack of space can also create problems when it comes to storage as well. A floating vanity can award you with some much-needed storage space via drawers, and the open area underneath the vanity can make the room appear bigger than it actually is. It also provides you the perfect spot to plant your feet, so you don’t feel as if you are taking up the entirety of the bathroom.


Less is Always More


If you don’t need a ton of storage space in the smaller bathroom, then you can opt for a much smaller vanity. A smaller vanity will provide some negative space, and this space will make the room appear larger.


Choose the Right Mirror to Reflect Bigger Spaces


Finally, opening up a small bathroom space can be as easy as changing out the mirror. Incorporating a larger mirror into the smaller space can help create the visual appearance of a bigger bathroom.
