Have a small bathroom? Sometimes it can be too expensive to get a bathroom remodeled. By utilizing bathroom decor such as colors, mirrors, or glass shower doors, there are many ways to make your bathroom lighter and more spacious. Whether it be a powder room, half bath, or small full bath, tiny rooms can often feel cramped and uncomfortable. With little to no natural light and limited space, it can be difficult to decorate these tiny spaces. But, there are different ways you can incorporate your own style into making your small bathroom feel bigger and brighter.
Legacy Bath and Kitchen has many small bathroom ideas that can help you make your bathroom feel more spacious for less.
There are many different colors to choose from, depending on what style you want to incorporate into your bathroom. One way to use color to make your space feel bigger is by choosing a light and bright color. This could mean painting the walls a light color to reflect any natural light. It could also mean choosing a lighter wood or painting any cabinets a lighter color to help give the bathroom a warm tone.
However, you don’t have to choose a light color. Contrary to popular belief, bold, dark colors can also make a small bathroom feel bigger. Dark colors are often thought to absorb light, but they can also create the illusion of a bigger space.
Mirrors are also strong elements that can create the illusion of a bigger space in a small bathroom. Consider incorporating a mirror wall. Amanda Sims with Clever Design says, “The reflection of light and pattern (and, sometimes, that open door) will do the same good work a window does.”
If you’re not too keen on the idea of a mirror wall, consider utilizing two or multiple mirrors. Take some design liberty and explore your different mirror options. Also, consider backlighting your mirror. This can create a dramatic way to create light and is a great way to take advantage of the little space with increased functionality.
Glass Shower Doors
So you have a small full bath. Glass doors can effectively create space while continuing to separate the shower from the rest of the bathroom. The glass keeps the space feeling open and bright, being able to utilize the natural light or allow for more effectiveness from the light fixture.
