Make a Small Bathroom Feel Larger
Bathroom Wall Mirrors
are an essential element of the well-designed small bathroom. Aside from their obvious functional nature in the bathroom, wall mirrors make a room seem brighter by reflecting existing light, and create the illusion of extra space by visually doubling the room. A beautiful oversized vanity mirror can make
even the smallest bathroom feel luxurious, and a prominent vanity mirror
creates a much-needed reflective light source in a bathroom with no windows. Multiple decorative mirrors
placed on opposite walls create an intriguing illusion of depth.
Recessed and Diffused Lighting
Add plenty of warm, diffused bright light to make a small room seem larger and more inviting. Recessed lighting, sleek vanity light fixtures and small hanging ceiling bathroom light fixtures
are all excellent options for increasing the amount of light in your bathroom. Try to incorporate multiple light
sources in different locations around the room to banish dark shadows and create a gentle, flattering all-around glow.
Organizing Tight Spaces
You may worry that your small bathroom will seem too crowded with added bathroom storage cabinets or shelving; however, the smaller your room, the more important it is to keep clutter under control. The key is to select bathroom furniture and bath accessories
that will optimize the space.
Measure your bathroom carefully to determine exactly how much space you have available for shelves and cabinets. Then select space-saving storage solutions that maximize the storage room you do have.
Utilize empty wall space in the bath by adding wall-mounted glass shelving, wall-mounted towel racks or bathroom wall cabinets. Capitalize on unused vertical space with over-the-toilet space savers or tall floor cabinets, or transform an empty corner into a convenient storage nook with unobtrusive corner cabinets. Add a tilt-out hamper to add much-needed flat surface space.
Add a Dash of Drama
While too many bathroom accessories or large pieces of furniture can quickly engulf a small room, don't be afraid to add a little drama to your small bathroom's decor with a single bold focal point. A distinctive hanging chandelier, an elegant sink cabinet or a striking outsized framed vanity mirror can add the perfect dash of unexpected glamour to complete your bathroom decor.
