A bathroom is a place in the home that should be comfortable and many people feel they cannot afford to make this room luxurious. There are some tips for making the toilet room appear more spacious and more luxurious.
Flooring and Walls
When tiling the floors and walls the colors should be blended. This will make it hard to find where one area stops and the other begins. This will allow the bathroom to appear larger.
White on White
White can reflect light and this will brighten up the bathroom.
Wall Mounted Sinks
This is a modern way to make the bathroom appear larger and more luxurious. The sinks will not make the bathroom feel cramped. They will free up space in the bathroom and there can even be room for some shelves.
A large mirror can make the bathroom appear to be larger. A large mirror will make the walls of the bathroom look longer too. Since the mirror can reflect it can create the illusion of additional space.
A floating vanity will free up floor space and allow the bathroom to look bigger. This vanity is great for bathrooms with tight space and will allow a person to have additional storage for the items needed in the bathroom.
Wall Mounted Toilet
These toilets can fit into small spaces and they make the room seem bigger. These toilets also give a modern feel to the bathroom.
This is a great option to hold essentials such as towels and toiletries without taking up additional room in the bathroom. There is often space above the toilet that is not being used where shelves can be added.
Glass paneling can be used to enclose the shower and looks much better than a traditional shower curtain. The glass will make the room look open and will allow more light to come into the bathroom. Frosted or tinted glass will allow for more privacy when in the shower.
Make a Wet Zone
The main activity where water is involved will be done in the wet zone. The dry zone is the vanity and the toilet. When making these separate zones it will allow the bathroom to appear larger. This will also protect the vanity from humidity and will reduce the chance of mildew from building up in the bathroom.
Good lighting is needed in the bathroom. This can allow the small room to look open. Bright lights are needed if there is a lack of natural lights. Wall scones, ceiling spotlights, and vanity lights are good options to add more lighting.
When possible allow natural light into the bathroom. This will allow the space to look larger. Windows in the bathroom are often small. To help with this put plants near the window. This will allow light to enter and will prevent humans and storage from blocking the window.
These are some tips for designing a great bathroom even with limited space. These tips can help the bathroom look larger and more open.
