Who doesn’t want a bigger bathroom? Regardless of how large your bathroom currently is, there are ways to make it feel even bigger and breezier so that you can feel at ease in one of the most frequently visited rooms in your home. Check out these five proven tips to make any bathroom space feel larger. 

It’s All About Color

When making a space feel bigger, you’ll want to stay on either side of the color spectrum–dark or light. Whether you go for a beautiful mint green or a moody midnight sky, the light will reflect off those colors, giving the illusion of a larger space. If you have a bathroom with a lot of windows, consider going with a light color scheme to help the room feel open and airy. If your bathroom doesn’t have any windows, going dark will give it depth so that it feels larger and deeper than it is.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Another fabulous way to create a more spacious feel is by reflecting light and space. Mirroring an entire wall will create the illusion that the space is double its size. It also helps a bathroom without windows look naturally brighter.

Keep it Glassy

Glass shower doors allow you to enjoy your bathroom’s entire space instead of cutting off the shower area, which makes a small room look even smaller. Glass doors give a bathroom an open, airy,and classy feel.

Raise the Bar

No glass shower doors? No worries! Place the shower curtain rod as close to the ceiling as possible. This gives the appearance of a higher ceiling, making the room feel much taller. Just make sure your shower curtain is long enough to make up for the height. Or purchase a longer one. They’re not expensive or difficult to find. It’s an easy and attractive upgrade, for sure!  

Store off the Floor

Floating storage is a win-win-win! It keeps the floor uncluttered, puts everything you need at arm’s length, and it’s attractive. There’s no bending or stooping to get at things, and you’re free to move around the room as needed.
