Use some of these decorating tricks to make your small bathrooms feel bigger, even if it stays the same size.
Unless you live in a custom-built home with a luxurious bath and dressing room, you probably wish your small bathrooms were bigger. Without adding any more square footage, you might feel less cramped if you use some of the tips to make your small bathrooms feel bigger.
Without taking up any counter space, you can add extra lighting to open up the look of your small bathrooms and add interest. Recessed can lighting can be installed into the ceiling and focused on any work space. Wall sconces or a countertop lamp will add warmth. More expensive alternatives for bringing more light into the room would be skylights or bigger windows.
A vanity cabinet provides nice storage under a sink, but takes up lots of floor space in small bathrooms. Replacing the vanity with a pedestal or wall-mounted sink can be fairly inexpensive. Your small bathrooms will definitely feel more open. Find alternative storage space with a small shelf or organize a nearby linen closet. When you remove the vanity cabinet, you’ll probably have to repair the flooring.
Even the smallest piece of furniture or accessory that sticks out into the room can stop where your eye goes and make your room seem to shrink. Remove wall shelves, hanging racks, or decorative accessories on the walls that cut into the room and make it look smaller. Of course, you may need some of the pieces for comfort and their usefulness, but if the room feels bigger without them, think of some other way to supply the space you need.
