Are you struggling with your small bathroom?
Does it feel more chaotic and cluttered than calm and peaceful?
If yes, then we can help you.
While a small bathroom can be a challenge, there are several steps that you can take to make a compact space feel more spacious and roomy.
From utilising vertical space to hanging mirrors on the walls, read on to discover five ways that you can make your small bathroom appear spacious.
If you have a small bathroom, then you cannot have any unnecessary clutter taking up space. Therefore, the first step you need to take is to remove any items that you don’t use regularly and store them somewhere else.
It can also be a good idea to limit the number of items you have in your bathroom. For example, if only two people use this room, then you only need two large towels. The same goes for shampoos and shower gel. Only have what you need on a daily basis on display.
Now that you have successfully removed any items that you don’t use, the next step is to find places to store the items that you do.
When it comes to storage solutions for a small bathroom, you need to think outside of the box. Make sure that you utilise vertical space, i.e., the walls, as you are limited in the amount of floor space that you have.
Hanging baskets are a great option for storing your shampoos, conditioners, etc. and built-in shelves offer the perfect solution for storing towels and displaying decorative items.
Mirrors are known for their ability to make a space feel as much as double the size that it actually is and are highly effective at making a bathroom feel more spacious.
As well as having a wall-mounted mirror for practical purposes, you may also want to try installing mirrored tiles on one of the walls to make the space feel even bigger.
For best results, opt for large mirrored tiles rather than smaller ones which can have the opposite effect.
Although you may love the luxuriating feeling of relaxing in a big tub, this may not be possible if you have a small bathroom. Rather than take up nearly all the space with a bath, you are much better off installing a shower instead.
Not only will a shower save you space, but it can also lower your water usage, saving you money on your monthly bills.
One of the simplest and most cost-effective ways to make a small bathroom appear more spacious is by painting the walls in a light and fresh colour.
While darker shades can make a space feel warm and relaxing, they can also make it appear smaller. Therefore, you should choose lighter colours for your walls and bathroom furniture.
Remember, you can always add a splash of colour or darker tones in your choice of accessories.
