No one likes a small bathroom, especially if you have to share it. But did you know there are some tiny bathroom hacks that will make the room feel bigger than it actually is?
You can make the most of a small space, and not be filled with loathing every time you step into the room.
1. Use Glass Shower Doors
Having a glass shower door over a curtain opens up a tiny shower and makes it appear larger. Having a curtain is like having another wall, and it closes the space.
2. Backlight Your Mirror
Backlighting your bathroom mirror amplifies the light in the room and makes it feel bigger and brighter. This hack works great if your bathroom doesn’t have room for vanity lighting.
3. Either Paint the Room in Light Pastels or Commit to a Darker Theme
Having light and bright colors like baby blue or mint green helps reflect the light coming in from the window if there is one. If there isn’t a window, try going with a dark theme, the dark accents will add depth to the space. Couple that with a mirrored wall and the bathroom suddenly seems much larger.
4. Use High-Gloss Paint
High gloss paint will work to amplify the natural light coming in from a window by acting as a reflector.
5. A Shower Niche is a Must
If you’ve got a tiny bathroom, a bathroom niche is a must-have. It works as extra storage and you can keep all of your shower essentials in one place.
6. Choose Pieces With Room Size in Mind
When choosing a toilet or a vanity, or a tub, keep the size of the room in mind. Choose compact options when available instead of following the trends of people who have bedroom-sized bathrooms.
7. Utilize All Space Available
If you have a little nook above your bathtub, add some small shelves as extra storage. Utilize any extra wall space you have.
8. Install a Skylight
Skylights can brighten almost any space, especially if you live somewhere sunny. If you don’t already have one, get one installed. It will significantly brighten your space and open it up.
9. Invest in a Mirror With Built-In Storage
One of the most useful bathroom investments you can make is a mirror that comes with bathroom storage. Medicine cabinets are a bit outdated, but an open-concept shelf will make the space feel more open and modern.
10. Add Mirrors to an Entire Wall
Having a mirrored wall will open up any space and make it feel larger than it really is. It might feel weird to stare at yourself when you’re moving around, but the sacrifice is worth it for a larger-feeling space.
