As we all know, size really doesn’t matter. But when it comes to interior design, we all want to make the most of what we’ve got.
So if you’re a bit worried that your bathroom won’t fit as much as you’d like into it, here are our top 5 tips for making a pokey space look ten-times larger. Let the magic commence!
5. Keep it clutter-free
Unnecessary ornaments, picture frames, or any other form of decorative pieces can be the enemy of spaciousness. If you’re trying to maximise a bathroom space, these items can actually just cause clutter and take room away from more important bathroom pieces, like whirlpool or spa baths. Keep your small bathroom clutter-free and you’ll create vital space for other things.
4. Make the most of wall space
If you’re limited on floor space, it’s time to think more vertically. There are lots of different ways that you can create wall-storage and start to create a sense of verticality in your bathroom. From heated towel rails to bathroom cabinets, with a little research you’ll be able to find a whole host of products that can take items that would otherwise be using up floor space and bring them above ground.
3. Let there be light
Just like any other room in the house, lighting is a vital element in your bathroom. The wrong lighting in a small bathroom can actually make it seem smaller, so spend some time researching your options. By using soft but bright down-lighters, or even a lighted cabinet, you can bring a light and airy feeling to any bathroom. This addition plays very well into our next suggestion…
2. Use lighter shades of colour
Along with the electronic lights, you can also introduce an airy feeling to your bathroom by choosing the right colour for the walls. It goes without saying that the darker the colour you choose, the more restricted the room will feel. So stick with colours such as baby blue, cream, ivory or anything else on the lighter end of the spectrum. It really will pay off by making the room seem leagues larger.
1. Be clever with mirrors
Ever noticed how many lifts use mirrors? The reason for this is simple: they amplify the feeling of space. To avoid a sense of claustrophobia in your bathroom, why not consider installing a large mirror on one of the walls? Installing the right mirror can sometimes be like adding an entirely new window, without really doing much at all. When it comes to making a bathroom seem larger, mirrors are one of the handiest tools in your arsenal – so make the most of them.
It’s actually quite easy to turn something seemingly small into a much more expansive environment. And a clutter-free bathroom is the perfect place for a whirlpool bath.
