If your bathroom is on the smaller side, you might think that your choices are limited when it comes to remodeling. However, there are many great ideas you can choose from to make your bathroom space feel and look more spacious. It’s also important that you learn how to maximize the space of your small bathroom properly.
To give the illusion of more space, you might consider installing a shower with a clear glass enclosure with minimal hardware. If you don’t prefer glass, you can use a clear shower curtain that allows the light inside.
Since unbroken lines can give more depth to any space, extending the bathroom tile into the shower space also makes your entire room seem bigger. Keep in mind that a curved or triangular shower stall takes up less space in your bathroom as well.
Additionally, you can place your towel racks above a tub or the spray of the shower stall to save space. Another useful addition to your shower is a shelf or shower niche where you can place your shampoo bottles and soaps for easier access.
The color palette of your bathroom can also make a huge difference. To make your space feel bigger and brighter, you might want to choose white and neutrals. This color palette can also make your bathroom look clean and orderly. A darker palette can make your bathroom appear spacious and help reflect the light for a more dramatic effect as well.
On the other hand, be careful when picking out bolder colors for your bathroom space. Too many colors can make your room look messy and smaller than it actually is. To be safe, choose a complementary palette wherein neutral tones are partnered with brighter colors.
Lighting and Mirrors
A well-lit bathroom can create the impression of a bigger space. Wall sconces, cove lighting and wall-mounted fixtures can make your ceilings appear higher. However, it’s best to steer clear of suspended lights as they make your ceilings look lower than it is.
Mirrors can also be used to open up a cramped bathroom. Oversize mirrors reflect more of the room, making your room look bigger and spacious. You might also want to add extra mirrors, such as small ones for makeup.
With careful planning and design, you don’t have to feel so confined in your small bathroom. For quality bathroom and exterior living space renovations, look no further than Reliable Remodeling. Call us at (205) 988-9194, or fill out our contact form to set an appointment.
