A cramped bathroom is not fun for anyone, but especially for families that share the space. In addition to organizing the room, there are other ways that you can successfully make your bathroom feel larger than it really is! Here are our top three suggestions:
1. Opt for a Minimalistic Design
The last thing you want to do in a crowded, small space is overdo the decor. In a small bathroom, the more minimalistic the design, the better. Stick to the basics—linens, bath mat, and soap dispenser—and hide or ditch the extra decor. For a truly succinct design, try matching textures and colors.
2. Stick to a Light & Bright Color Scheme
In a small bathroom, natural or artificial light paired with a bright, neutral color scheme will do wonders for the size of the space. Reflecting light will help your bathroom feel fresh and airy. While you’re at it, try installing a larger vanity mirror or multiple mirrors to help light travel throughout the space easily.
3. Ditch the Tub for a Walk-In Shower
Most homes will feature at least one traditional bathtub/shower combo. While useful, this design can make things feel crowded in a smaller bathroom. To create the illusion of a larger bathroom, consider investing in a tub-to-shower conversion. Walk-in or low-entry shower systems will seamlessly connect the wet and dry areas of the bathroom. Installing clear, glass shower doors will also help create the illusion of a larger space—just make sure to keep the inside of your shower clean and organized.
