When designing a small bathroom, most people who plan to spend extra time there probably won’t want it to stay true to size. While it might be necessary due to your own budget, you can create a very stylish small bathroom that looks larger with numerous clever design techniques. Many of these ideas provide tricks of the eye or affect you psychologically to give the illusion of more spaciousness. That’s always important for you and your guests to eliminate any feelings of claustrophobia in one of the most important rooms of your house.
Even if the overall space of your bathroom might be small, including a walk-in shower with a see-through glass door can open up extra space. While an open walk-in shower won’t afford privacy if you share the bathroom with others, it eliminates giving the feeling of barriers within limited room dimensions. The shower becomes a part of the room rather than becoming a closed off separate room on its own.
Incorporating Mirrors into Cabinets and Walls
Including as many mirrors as possible into a small bathroom always gives the illusion of depth. While simply hanging the mirrors on the walls works, consider placing mirrors on your cabinet doors as an alternative to eliminate the feeling of barriers. Also, having mirrors reflect other mirrors on the other side of the bathroom adds an extra depth layer that helps eliminate the feeling of the walls closing in.
Using Light, Neutral Colors
Adding white marble walls and tiles to your small bathroom also helps give the feeling of more spaciousness. Overly bright colors are the culprits in making a room feel smaller than it actually is. But when applying your light, neutral colors to the small bathroom, be sure to keep the color unified. Painting your ceiling the same color of the walls also gives a focus to the height of the room that also matters in the perception of roominess.
Adding a Skylight
Unless you live in a completely private area, you likely won’t want windows installed in your small bathroom. The alternative to that is to install a skylight. This can bring in natural light to help a room look bigger. Having the sky up above you also adds an open feeling that affects you in a positive psychological way during your quality bathroom time.
