There are a ton of tricks to designing small bathrooms that will maximize the space you already have. Recessed shelves make a huge difference both visually and practically, and bathroom accessories such as baskets and racks are also a great way of adding storage in an aesthetically appealing way. Pop by our showroom to check out our selection of floor-to-ceiling fitted bathroom cabinets or even built in storage cubbies.
Float the vanity
Besides just visually helping the bathroom appear bigger, mounting a vanity above the floor frees up a little space for small items. A finishing touch like an artfully placed large bathroom mirror will make any small bathroom appear more expansive.
Choosing the right colors and textures
The right color choice can make all the difference. Pale colors and iridescent tiles that reflect the light, keep walls and ceilings the same color and texture and using complementary shades throughout the bathroom will make the room feel larger. The fewer the contrasts and transitions will help maintain the sense of space.
Use a large-scale pattern
Or the use of a single large-scale pattern, like a wide stripe, can trick the eye into seeing expanded space. The square footage might stay the same, but the bathroom will feel bigger.
Use a wall-mounted faucet
Mounting a faucet on the wall allows for a narrower sink or vanity, which in turn frees up square footage in the total bathroom. Don’t be afraid to try a wall-mounted faucet in traditional design. It works anywhere!
