Prioritize what is important to you in your bathroom. Slimming down counter spaces or tubs can free up some floor space. Try a shower-tub combo to fit the area. You can also add floor to ceiling cabinets to utilize all of the space on the walls or go for open shelving; be sure that there is enough storage for each person’s items. If you don’t need as much storage space, swap out a broad vanity cabinet with a pedestal or wall-mount sink. Simple tasks such as decluttering your countertops and shower shelves can make a huge difference too.
Bold Colors and Accents
Sticking to light and bold colors in your small room can give the illusion of more space. Opt for a light, neutral color for the walls and then accentuate with bold accessories like towels and other bath décor. Darker colors will make the space feel more closed and smaller than it already is.
Nowadays, homeowners have vast master bathrooms with “his and hers” vanities, a toilet, a whirlpool tub, a huge shower and possibly additional furniture. By adding bold colors, appealing decorating details and adequate storage you can make your small cluttered bathroom into your own personal spa retreat as well.
Don’t make your bathroom space halt at the shower. Continue the illusion by installing clear glass shower doors to make the shower part of the room as well. To create a spa atmosphere, replace your shower head with multiple shower heads or one oversized shower head and incorporate technology with surround sound. Include larger mirrors to the room to make light reflect and “expand” the space.
