Interior Design Tips: How to Make a Bathroom Look Bigger

From millennials living in tiny houses to seniors making the money-saving move to smaller spaces like townhomes and condos, adding a roomy feeling to their homes for your clients requires some innovative thinking. When space is at a premium in the bathroom, these interior design tips should come in very handy for you.

Floating Vanity in the Bathroom

When space gets tight in a bathroom, balancing the need for storage with a desire for breathing room can be quite the challenge. A floating vanity is a great answer for making such a small area feel larger. Even with room to store daily essentials, the bit of flooring that’s revealed beneath makes the area feel a notch more open.

Glass Adds Class – And Space

A great way to expand the look and feel of a small bathroom is by replacing a shower curtain with a glass panel or door in the shower. By eliminating the visual wall, the entire square footage of the room will be visible at once for a bigger look, especially when you’re in the shower. A frameless glass design adds an even more open feeling.

Use Small Bathroom Size to Your Advantage

As mentioned in a previous post, cozy spaces are in this year. If you can turn the limited space of a smaller bathroom into a positive for your client by making it feel intimate and comfy, you’ll do yourself and them a favor. Choosing a single color in various shades can create a sense of coziness, a richly stained wood vanity and mirror frame adds a touch of luxury. The small floor tiles add a splash of contrasting texture that keeps the space looking modern and fresh.
