Top 10 Small Bathroom Visual Enlargements
- Color Conscious - Brighten and cool the room in both paint and fabric. Keep the feel light and airy; use the 60-30-10 Rule. 60% Dominant Color, 30% Secondary Color, 10% Accent Color
- Wallpaper - Stick with textured paper. Choose one that uses vertical lines to add the height illusion; nothing busy.
- See Clearly - Substitute the opaque glass shower enclosure for a clear, frameless one. Don't hide the little room you have. Use sheer or delicate fabrics.
- Merge - If you have both a shower stall and bathtub, eliminate the shower by adding a shower head to the bathtub.
- Get in Sink - Use a pedestal sink to add more floor space. Mount it to the wall it to clear the floor, or add a vessel sink to provide more counter space.
- Don't Cut Corners - Replace your large out-dated toilet with a small modern corner toilet to avoid wasted space. Corner sinks are also available as a wall mount and pedestal.
- Mirrors- Reflect the space with multiple mirrors. Mirrors make any room look bigger. Use at least one with a built-in medicine cabinet to help with storage.
- Clear the Way - Only leave out what is absolutely necessary. Remove small accessories and organize to give everything a home.
- Board the Floors - Light colored flooring, such as birch wood, will match the cool colors and aid in the eye trick of appearing larger. Ask a professional about the best wood and sealant to use in bathrooms. Tile is a safe alternative, working well on counter tops, walls and floors.
- Cut the Carpet - No wall to wall carpeting. Use runner carpets to give length to the floor rather than those stumpy, rectangular bathroom carpets.
