Even medium sized bathrooms can begin to feel cramped when you begin to add shelving, cabinetry, and vanities. However, these things can help produce a clean appearance while adding significant convenience, making them an attractive addition to many restrooms.
One of the best ways to guard against a cramped feel is by choosing bathroom furniture and fixtures that are ideally sized for your space. If your washroom is small, get creative with shelving and cabinetry or consider hallways adjacent to the restroom for some of your bathroom storage needs.
Lighting and reflective surfaces can also produce a more spacious appearance. If your bathroom has little to no natural light, consider adding windows or a skylight. If these options are not available, look at installing additional light fixtures on walls or overhead to produce a brighter look and feel.
Simple additions such as mirrors on bathroom doors can help a room appear much larger. So too can chrome fixtures and glossier surfaces on countertops.
Your bathroom is where you start and end your day. Taking steps to produce a roomier feel can extend into other areas of the home for an overall more open, relaxing, and inviting aesthetic.
