Your small bathroom may not be exactly what you want. After all, a bathroom should be a place that is not only functional, but somewhere you can go to relax and unwind in the tub and a place where you often store hair and body care products too. However, even the smallest bathroom can be made to feel larger. Consider some of these remodel ideas that range from things as large as replacing shower and tub doors to as simple as adding store-bought storage containers. You can easily make the space that you both need and desire.
The old, outdated shower and tub doors from the 80’s and 90’s or even a shower curtain section off your bath or shower area and make the room feel extraordinarily cramped. Adding one of the new frameless doors does not actually make more space, but the feeling it gives the room is incredible.
Use Color Appropriately
While most people do not often think about the colors in their bathroom, choosing the right ones can make a big difference. One option is choosing contrasting colors on opposite walls. This makes the room feel larger through an optical illusion.
Take Control of Clutter
Clutter is makes your bathroom feel smaller. Installing shelving is an ideal solution. However, if you are not handy, you may find there are some options that require little to no actual installation. Get your clutter out of site to make your space feel much larger.
Mirrors and Windows
The creative use of mirrors and windows in your bathroom can make even the smallest spaces feel large and open. While not every bathroom is configured to allow you to expose the window, remember that mirrors and windows both make the space feel much larger and take away that cramped, claustrophobic feeling.
These are just a few of the ways you can make simple remodel projects help your bathroom feel larger. Perhaps one day you will be able to tear down a wall and make that spa-like retreat of your dreams, but in the meantime you will be able to enjoy the space you have.
