Maximize Bathroom Space With These Practical Tips

Accessible Home Builders Bathroom Space

Utilize these helpful tips.

By making a few small changes, you can maximize your bathroom space and make it appear larger than it is. Even the most minor changes can make a big difference and create the perception of a larger area. If you aren’t ready for a significant bathroom renovation or don’t have the funds, these remodeling ideas can create a feeling of a whole new bathroom and aid you in maximizing your space.  

Use Soft Colors

Using light colors within a room always makes it feel larger. Neutrals and soft colors give your bathroom an airier and more open feel. Darker colors, like green or red, can make your bathroom feel smaller. Lighter colors also reflect light, making the room feel more spacious, whereas darker colors absorb light, making the room feel more confining.

Glass-Enclosed Showers

Shower curtains and opaque door closures provide a visual stop and make the room appear smaller. By changing these out for glass enclosures, your eye continues further into the room, creating the illusion that it is much larger than it is. If you want to take your space to the next level, a frameless enclosure can do even more to maximize your bathroom space.

Be Sure To Use Mirrors

Light bounces and reflects off mirrors and adds the illusion of additional depth. Frameless mirrors provide clean lines without sudden stops, only enhancing the perception of more space.

Free Up Floor Space

Free up floor space by installing a pedestal sink or wall-mounted vanity. A long floating vanity can be a huge space saver, especially if equipped with drawers or cabinets. Hidden storage removes visible clutter and helps your bathroom feel more spacious.

Use Similar Materials

Using similar tiles for the floor and the shower creates continuous lines that your eye follows. Similar materials and colors for your countertop can also add to this flow. Using too many dissimilar materials can make the room feel busy and crowded. Larger tiles can also make the room more spacious because fewer grout lines help the space feel less cluttered.

Add Natural Light

A great design is ultimately the key to maximizing your bathroom space. One factor to consider for your bathroom is where you can take advantage of natural lighting. Natural light adds to the feeling of openness in your bathroom. If your budget allows, consider adding a larger window or a skylight. Incorporating these various remodeling choices will enable you to turn any bathroom into an open and luxurious space. Are you ready to construct a new bathroom for your custom home?
