Most people dream of having a spacious bathroom with a separate shower and tub and two sinks. Well, we know that we all don’t live in those big house. But, whether we live that dream or not, we can make our small bathroom live up to its full potential.
How to Make Powder Rooms Look and Feel Bigger
By using some strategies, our bathroom will look bigger and may be a bathroom we dream of. From choosing color palette and essential fixtures, we could use some or all tips to make our small bathroom appear twice as large.
Go Airy with White on White
The simplest way to make a powder room looks bigger is to use lots of white. Whites give the room a spacious look. For applying white on white in the room, we can use white tile, white paint, a white vanity and others. This color naturally recedes and make the space feel bigger. Plus, white also reflects any available light rather than absorbing it like dark colors.
Since bathrooms already use lots of white fixtures such as tubs, toilet, and sink. Use white for other surfaces can make the space appear as airy as we desire. Some people think that when using lots of white in their bathroom will make the space lacks character. In this case, we can give the eye lots of richness to take in. Try to use different textural element and occasional touch of metallic or wood.
Choose Floating Vanity
Having small space can be a problem if we don’t know how to bring in the right finishing. In that tight bathroom space, we can balance a demand for storage with a desire for space to breathe. Use a floating vanity. A floating vanity gives lots of room to store our daily essentials. It also doesn’t take up much floor space.
Less is More
If we don’t really need maximum storage, consider to use a small vanity. The small vanity can keep our bathroom items without eating up much space and make the room cluttered. It is a good idea rather than installing the biggest unit. Plus, it make the space feel less stuffed and roomier. Another benefit is when our tub is next to the vanity, we can get extra open space even more.
Go Big with Mirror
Mirrors can be a great answer for any small room to make it feel bigger. Install a large mirror in the bathroom. It can double the size of our space and help visually double the investment. Indeed, a large mirror is more expensive. However, a mirror can give us a dramatic look at a better value.
