How Can I Make My Small Bathroom Feel Larger?

A cramped bathroom isn’t pleasant to use. Take it from me. I have two bathrooms in my home, and I will always use the larger one if it is available. It has a more luxurious feel. 

Unless your bathroom remodel includes breaking down walls, there’s not much you can do to make your bathroom bigger. But there are steps you can take to make it feel more spacious. Here are some suggestions. 

Paint it a Light Color

Light and bright colors are reflective, making a room look open and airy. Dark colors absorb light, making rooms feel smaller. If you want to make your bathroom look larger, opt for a light color. Light green, lemon yellow, and powdery teals are some of the lighter hues that are very in this year. 

Use Light

The right lighting scheme will make your room appear more spacious. Spread light around with wall lights and sconce lights that open the room up. Pendant lights are trending this year, and they are ideal for emphasizing the height of the room. 

It’s also wise to play up your natural light. Bathrooms tend to be dark, making them look smaller. If you only have a small window in your bathroom, bring in more natural light by installing a skylight or solar tunnel. 

Add Mirrors

Mirrors work to produce a more spacious look in bathrooms in several ways. For one, they reflect the existing space making it look larger. They also reflect light which makes it look like you have more real estate. Mirrors are a hot commodity in the bathroom, so make the most of them by installing as many as you can. 

Add Greenery

Plants will add square footage to your bathroom if they are placed correctly. Position them around the room to add an element of expansion. Place tall plants on the floor to add height to your ceilings. Low-light plants like ivy and snake plants will thrive in a bathroom atmosphere. 

Keep Everything the Same Color

Using a lot of colors and patterns will make your bathroom look cluttered. It will divide up walls and spaces, making them seem smaller. A uniform, light color will open up the room and give the impression of a bigger, brighter space.

Clutter will make your bathroom feel small. You can eliminate clutter with shelving and cabinets. Think of building up instead of out.
