Making Small Bathroom Spaces Appear Larger

When bathroom space is limited, it's important to maximize its utility while making it feel more spacious. Some simple changes can help you achieve this. Using either a corner lavatory, pedestal with an open shelf below it or wall-mounted vanity like DECOLAV’s  Cityscape® Wall Mount Vanity, can conserve foot space and create a more open feel rather than using a traditional vanity. Additionally, wall mounting the faucet allows for the utilization of a narrower sink. Conversely, if wall space is at a minimum, a towel bar can be added to the shower door.

Recessed shelving in the shower, or placed between studs in the wall, allows more storage space without giving up square footage or creating obstacles. If this isn't practical for your bathroom, glass shelving can be a terrific solution.

The idea is to create a uniform appearance for the eye to extend its vision rather than be interrupted by changes in texture, color and shape. The way this can be accomplished is through various methods, similar to the way clothing can slim a person or make them appear taller.

A monochromatic color scheme such as all white, including the ceiling, makes a room appear brighter and visually uninterrupted. Lighter colors work better than dark for this purpose. A strategically placed mirror can reflect light and achieve a similar effect.

Using the same tile on the floor of a shower as the floor of the room, and then placing a glass partition instead of a shower door or curtain is an especially effective way to achieve this. In addition, it helps if the tile in the shower extends all the way to the ceiling rather than being visually broken by stopping short.

Look to optimize natural light by removing bulky window coverings or dense privacy glass. Consider lightly opaque shades which let more sun in.
