Making the Most of Your Small Bathroom Spaces

Even though it’s not the most glamorous room in your house, there’s no reason not to make your bathroom a serene and pleasant place. For too many people, though, their bathroom is a small space that seems too difficult to decorate or arrange nicely. You may even think of your bathroom in purely practical terms, without spending much effort on decoration. Luckily, there are some easy ways to improve the look of your bathroom, even if it’s very small, without spending a ton of energy or cash. Here are some fast fixes to make the most out of your small bathroom.

First, get rid of all the clutter. Of course, there are many things that you need to keep in the bathroom, but these should be stored out of sight whenever it’s possible. Install cabinets high on the wall, under the sink, or on top of the toilet, making the most of the space that you have available. And ditch the figurines and little pieces that you may have used to decorate before. Instead, hang up tasteful, minimalist decor on the walls. These decorations won’t accumulate much dust, take up a lot of space, or make your bathroom look crowded, messy, or cluttered.

Next, use color to create a soothing oasis without looking drab. Start with a relaxing color like blue or green in a light shade, which will make the room look slightly bigger and will impart a sense of calm. Then, accessorize with a few, strategically placed pops of brighter color to make the room look fresh and exciting. Find a shower curtain in a clear or very light color to extend the size of your room. And hang mirrors to trick the eye into perceiving more space in the room than there actually is. Consider adding a potted plant to give the room an especially cheery look as well as improve air quality.

Finally, consider replacing any bathroom furnishings that are damaged or unappealing. Shop around at a variety of places and consider commercial bathroom sinks from a reputable company like AM Bath. The right sink, tub, and toilet can take your bathroom from drab and uncomfortable to beautiful and luxurious. New technology is available to really enhance the experience of using the room. Make your bathroom a sanctuary no matter what size it is, and enjoy your space.
