4 Tips on How to Maximize Your Small Bathroom Space
If you have a small bathroom, it can feel like there’s no way to make it feel big and luxurious. But there are lots of ways to make your small bathroom space feel bigger without major renovations or costly upgrades. Here are some ideas for turning your tiny bathroom into something special:
Install a shower screen
A shower screen is a great way to maximize your small bathroom space. Not only does this add extra storage, but it can also help you hide some of the clutter that’s usually left out in a small bathroom.
If you have an existing bathtub and want to install a shower screen over the bath or if you are doing a full renovation on your bath and want to go from tub to shower, then this is a great option for you.
Shower screens come in all shapes and sizes so they’ll fit into almost any type of space (or even awkwardly shaped spaces). They are also very easy to install – most of them come with instructions and screws included so there’s no need for professional help if you don’t have it.
Add a frame to your mirrors
Use a mirror with a frame that matches the style of your bathroom. If you’re looking for something simple, use a white frame to match the style of your bathroom and make it look more spacious by adding more light to the room. If you have an old-fashioned style, go with something ornate like gilded or carved wood that will add detail to your space as well as make it appear larger than it actually is. For modern bathrooms, consider using mirrors without frames so they blend in better with their surroundings while still reflecting enough light into the room to give off an illusion of depth and width.
Use the walls
Make use of wall space to store things that don’t need to be in a drawer or hanging on a hook. For example, you can hang towels from hooks and use them as a way to make sure you have enough for everyone using the bathroom at once. Or hang your toothbrush on the wall so that it’s always at hand when you brush your teeth in the morning. A small shelf attached to one of the walls is also an excellent place to put makeup and other toiletries that need drying after each use.
Use under-counter storage
Under-counter storage is a great way to maximize space. In a small bathroom, it’s important to keep the floor clear so you can move around easily and avoid accidents. By using under-counter storage, you’ll be able to store cleaning supplies and other items that won’t get in the way of your movement.
You could also install a corner sink or choose one with an angled front edge. This will allow you to place it close enough to the wall for easy access without taking up too much floor space (or leaving too much room between the sink and toilet).
If you have enough room at all, look into having a wall-hung sink installed instead of one mounted on top of vanity cabinets or built into them. This will save even more valuable floor space by taking up none at all.
You might consider purchasing a corner shower instead of an enclosed bathtub. This offers more flexibility while still maximizing utilization of available space in this tough environment because it doesn’t take up any extra lengthwise area than necessary – just turn 90 degrees instead of 180°.
Maximizing your small bathroom space can be challenging. However, with the right tools and techniques, you can make it work.
