Most bathrooms are small. Some, though, make using them comfortably a challenge. Whether your home is small overall, or your bathroom was built with only a few people in mind, creating space for storage and other necessities in a tiny room can be a real headache.
To make the space look and feel bigger, consider working these hacks into your bathroom remodeling in St. Louis – and ask your contractor which ones might work best for your space.
Carve Out More Space
While you cannot add square footage to your bathroom, you can add a few inches of storage here and there. That might not sound like much, but it can make a major difference in the way the room functions and feels.
Some examples of storage you can create include:
- Built-in soap dishes or draining trays.
- Shelving built into space between studs in the wall.
- Toilet paper or paper towel holders installed in the walls.
Anywhere you can remove pieces of wall and install a little storage is a big bonus in a tiny space.
If your bathroom has dark walls or flooring, consider changing it up to create the illusion of more space. Lighter colors make the room feel bigger and breezier – and more pleasant to be in.
Look at Lighting, Too
Just like paint and flooring, the lighting in your bathroom can majorly impact the feel of the room. Adding lighting wherever possible can make the room look and feel bigger and make it more functional. Make doing makeup, shaving, and other personal care tasks easier with brighter, more attractive lighting.
Maximize Your Mirrors
Most bathrooms have at least one mirror, but these can sometimes be small. Up-sizing your mirror or adding additional reflective surfaces can make the room look and feel bigger by bringing more light into the room and bouncing it off those lighter walls you’ve created.
