How To Design Your Small Bathroom To Feel Larger
Hey, don’t you forget about your throne room!
Bathrooms are places where decor sometimes get forgotten or simply put off until you get around to it..
As such, it's all about staying to the basics and just making sure its functional.
That being said, if you have a small bathroom, you're going to find that this concept gets old quickly, and you need to make this room into something amazing.
That's why we're here to take a look at some bathroom decorating ideas, so that you can have a bathroom worth envying.
You're going to love these innovative and cheap options.
Whether the rest of your home decor has patterns in it or not, it's really important to make sure that you consider the idea of patterns in your small bathroom.
These can be on the four walls with wallpaper, one wall as an accent wall, or on the floor with a bright, patterned floor tile.
The options are endless and you can pick bold colors or go back to basics. Pick one that you love and don't be afraid to go wild.
The thing to remember is that this pattern – wherever you decide to put it – is going to make your bathroom more visually appealing to everyone that walks in.
Store Things Wisely
Another way to make the most out of your small bathroom is to make sure that you really get smart about how you store everything.
This can be done with crafty nooks that go in the corner with deep shelving, or maybe a small carousel on the vanity/shelf that is really innovative in how it’s set up.
The point is to get storage that really helps you keep everything organized so that you aren't making your bathroom look even smaller due to clutter.
Especially in small spaces, even though you may have a use for everything in there, clutter just looks like mess.
It may take you some time to get that smart storage in place, but it will be worth it when you have it all come together.
Keep It Visually Appealing
Sometimes, small is just small.
There are times where white paint, sunlight and a little decluttering will make a space feel larger.
When that happens, try to keep things as visually appealing as possible.
Choose your accent color and spread it around the room as much as possible without going over board. Get candles, towels, hand soap, etc that are in your accent color and place them in areas of your bathroom that just feel right.
Keeping your guest eyes moving in your small bathroom will have them appreciating the decor and focused less on the space.
Add Some Life To Your Mirror
If you're not quite ready to jump that far in your bathroom design, that's okay!
Maybe consider, instead, the idea of making your mirror a piece of art. This is done by simply making a frame for an existing mirror..
Some people like doing it with newspaper or other printed options, other are more comfortable with the idea of using a wooden or tiled frame.
It simply comes down to looking at what you are hoping to get out of your mirror and matching it (or letting it contrast) with the decor you already have in place.
There all sorts of tutorials online about framing your bathroom mirror so that you can really get into this idea.
Light Colors Always Help
If you want to take your bathroom even farther in the idea of helping your guests stay distracted from the small size of the bathroom, you accomplish this a lot of the time by using a light, warm color.
These kinds of colors in a bathroom are normally a good idea because it lightens up a normally dark room, anyway.
It's all about adding flavor and flair to a room that is often neglected when it comes to design.
Small doesn’t mean it needs to be neglected or low priority.
Some of the most beautiful bathrooms I have seen would be considered standard or even small.
The point is to have fun, make it yours, and help guests see anything but a small bathroom when they step through the door.
