Bathrooms tend to be among the smaller rooms within homes, especially homes that were built some time ago. Just because the space in a bathroom may be limited, however, does not necessarily mean that the room has to feel small or claustrophobic.
In fact, if you take some time to think about the layout and features of your bathroom (when setting up the space or redesigning it), you can make the most of a smaller space while adding comfort and sophistication to it.
Open Up a Small Bathroom Space By…
Replacing a cabinet sink with a pedestal sink – Sinks areas can consume a lot of space in smaller rooms, so consider condensing the sink’s footprint by taking out cabinet sinks and replacing them with a pedestal sink. If you need the cabinet storage space, you can add in shelving (preferably in a hall outside of the bathroom so you don’t eat up the space you are trying to open up).
- Incorporating ambient lighting – Softer ambient lighting can open up smaller spaces, especially those that may get little to no light via windows/natural sources. So, consider replacing overhead lights with a few wall scones to light the room.
- Making your shower curbless – The edge of a shower can abruptly cut off the feel of space in a bathroom. If possible, consider replacing showers that have curbs around them with a curbless variety to open up the floor and feel of the room.
- Adding frameless mirrors – Taking the frames off of mirrors is another way to create the illusion of more space in a bathroom. You may even want to replace small circular mirrors with broader, square mirrors that have no frames to maximize the effect.
- Revitalizing the tub and tile – Is the tile and/or tub in the bathroom dingy, stained or damaged? If so, refinishing the tub and tile is another great way to open up the look and feel of a bathroom while breathing new life into it.
