6 Tips to Make a Tiny Bathroom Feel Bigger

A tiny bathroom poses a problem to those who need space to shower, change, and groom. Sharing this small space with a partner or family poses a new set of challenges. You are not only storing your toiletries in this space but your family’s as well. Fortunately, you do not have to let a tiny bathroom restrict your usage. While you can create additional storage solutions, you can also find tricks to create the illusion of more space. All you need to do is think outside the box to maximize your space, from vertical storage to the use of mirrors. 

1. Reflect Space With a Large Mirror

If you want to create the illusion of more space, start with a large mirror over your sink. Mirrors are used to reflect space and light to make the room feel bigger. Another idea is to use a cluster of smaller mirrors or reflective surfaces to bounce light around the room.

2. Switch From Frosted to Clear Glass

If your shower door is made of frosted glass, switching to clear glass is another way to make the space feel bigger. The clear glass eliminates the visual barrier that makes the bathroom look and feel small. Furthermore, a sliding glass door takes up less space in your tiny bathroom.

3. Consider Switching to Floating Fixtures

Another way to eliminate visual barriers is to switch to a floating toilet and sink. You can even place a small shelf under the sink for additional storage. Then again, you may want to keep the area clear to create more visual space.

4. Brighten Your Space With Ample Lighting

Lighting is an easy way to make a space feel bigger and brighter. Recessed, hanging, and wall lights do not take up much space in a small bathroom. Additionally, multiple light sources are ideal for bathrooms without windows.

5. Install Vertical Storage for Toiletries

Using a small bathroom often means adding storage solutions for toiletries, towels, and decorative pieces. Vertical storage is a great choice because it takes up little-to-no floor space. This includes floating shelves, self-adhesive hooks, and over-the-door hangers. 

6. Look Into Over-the-Toilet Shelving

Over-the-toilet shelving takes up very little space while creating accessible storage. It is perfect for items you may need to grab quickly, such as toilet paper and personal care products. Over-the-toilet shelving also makes the most out of space that may otherwise go unused.
The bathroom is the most used room besides the kitchen, so you need to make the most of this small space. If you need to schedule a remodel for your tiny bathroom, consider Bowen Remodeling & Design for the job. You can get started by contacting the team to request a free estimate.
