Make Way, Make Way — Creating a More Spacious Bathroom

As homes get smaller and smaller, homemakers are becoming more and more innovative to get the most of every square inch in their small bathroom space. Here are some design tips to maximize your existing bathroom space.

Stored and Organized

The best way to add storage and organize your small bathroom is to make good use of the wall above the toilet or any free wall. You can up your storage space in the bathroom and save on floor space by installing wall bathroom cabinets, which can work wonders for your bathroom. You can also install a cabinet under the sink or in the corner of the bathrooms.

When choosing a style for the bathroom cabinet, choose one that matches the design and fitting of the tub and sink. Likewise the cabinet colors should complement those of the bathroom tiles. And when you’re deciding which size cabinet to buy, think of everything that you’ll be storing inside — or might to.

Caring with Colors and Accessories

Natural light will brighten the entire bathroom, whereas dark-colored walls can be overpowering, depressing even, and can make the room look as if it’s shrunk. Use light and natural tones to make your bathroom look bigger. Experiment with different textures instead of patterns.

Don’t forget to keep everything in proper proportion. If you have too many accessories and furnishings you’ll end up giving the room an imbalanced feel. You should also make sure that the colors of accessories and furnishings complement the bathroom. Otherwise, it’ll just look cluttered, so opt for smaller appliances instead too. If all your appliances are the same color, your bathroom will seem more streamlined.

Looking after the Sink and Shower

Use a shower curtain, glass panel or sliding shower door rather than a glass door that opens inwards or outwards. Not only that, they’ll make it easier to keep most of the water within the showers itself than let it drip or spray out onto the floor.

When there’s minimum space, mount the towel bar on the shower door. Store the bulk of your towels in the cabinets. Another way to add more floor space is to choose a pedestal sink or a wall-mounted floating sink. A mirror wall can also create visually double the space of your bathroom.

Make the most of every part of your bathroom and enjoy the extra space with these tips.
