5 Tricks to make a Small Bathroom Look Bigger
Creating a highly functional space with a small bathroom can be a challenge, but with our 5 clever design tricks, you can make your bathroom look and feel more spacious.
1. INCLUDE LOTS OF NATURAL LIGHT
Small bathrooms can often appear dark. Natural light makes the room look brighter and opens up the space so it appears larger. If you only have a small window, install a skylight or solar tunnel to bring more natural light into the room. A translucent window shade will also help more light to come in while still protecting your privacy.
2. BLEND THE TILE AND WALL COLOURS
If your bathroom is only part-tiled, paint the rest of the wall space the same colour as your tiles. This eliminates the dividing lines which can occur where the tiles end – these divide your walls into sections and make the room appear less spacious. Using grout that’s the same colour as your tiles also helps to create a more unified look.
3. KEEP EVERYTHING THE SAME COLOUR AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE
Using lots of different colours and patterns in your bathroom makes it appear cluttered. It divides up the space so it feels smaller. Using a uniform, light colour throughout the room will open it up and create the impression of a larger, brighter space.
4. INSTALL TILES ALL THE WAY TO THE CEILING
Make Small Bathroom Look Bigger – Bigger Wall Tiles If possible, have the same tiles throughout your bathroom, all the way up to the ceiling. This way, you will have no horizontal dividing lines on your walls, which will help to open up the space by giving the impression of your ceiling being higher.
4. PAINT THE CEILING THE SAME COLOUR AS THE WALLS
The unified look doesn’t have to stop where the walls end. Painting your ceiling the same colour as the walls will continue the seamless appearance throughout the entire space. If you really want a contrast, choose a slightly lighter shade for the ceiling. Ceilings tend to appear darker than the walls due to the way light is reflected so painting them slightly lighter can create a more unbroken effect.
5. USE LARGE PLAIN-COLOURED FLOOR TILES
It’s a common mistake to use smaller floor tiles in a small bathroom. This actually makes the room look smaller as it creates more dividing lines between the tiles. Choosing a large, plain-coloured tile will give the impression of more floor space and a cleaner, less cluttered look.
