Small but Mighty: Turning a Tiny Bathroom into a Bright Space

by Tom Grant on Oct 2, 2013

A small bathroom or powder room can brim with style when you employ some extraordinary design tips. Moreover, some design features have so much impact that a tiny space somehow feels larger and certainly doesn’t feel cramped or confining. The following tips will help you transform a small bathroom into a space that’s big on wow factor and a pleasure to behold!

Bright Colors

It’s a basic design rule—dark colors recede while light colors expand. Therefore, painting a small bathroom in a dark shade of cocoa or gray can have the effect of making the room appear smaller. However, if you opt for a bright shade of white, yellow, or orange, you can make space appear larger than it is. According to the paint manufacturer Sherwin-Williams, “The magic of color is that you can use it to make a space appear different.”  Bring some paint samples home to see what bright shades will look best for your bathroom.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Using mirrors in your small bathroom décor is just the element to add a new dimension to space. Mirrors may not expand the physical real estate, but their reflections somehow add a feeling of greater depth to the room and certainly, they add stunning visual appeal. Decorative bathroom mirrors can change the look of a room and you’ll easily be able to find them in a wide array of choices that complement your decorative scheme.

Ditch the Vanity

Sometimes the best options for a sink for a small bathroom are a pedestal sink or a narrow wall-mounted sink. While it might be tempting to opt for a vanity with cabinetry for storage, this can lead to a cramped fit. If you can ditch the box-like vanity for a sleek option, you’ll find that this one single feature can impact the space. If you can’t exchange a bulky model now, consider painting it a bright or even light metallic color so that it appears smaller.

Keep Clutter to a Minimum

Instead of lots of shelves brimming with items, consider adding just one shelf with a vase of flowers, for instance. Too many items can make a small space seem crowded. The less you store in the bathroom, the better. If storage is a necessity, however, consider built-in units instead of free-standing cabinetry.

Show Off Your Style

While you might be keeping props and non-essential items to a minimum, you can still employ great decorative features that convey your singular style. For instance, maybe you’ll choose mod light fixtures or an Asian-inspired print for your shower curtain. You can spruce up common bathroom features with design style when you swap out a plain light switch plate for a fancy one, an old rug for something more modern, or plain white towels with colorful towels that pop.

You’ll find that with a little research, you can find lots of ideas for making a small space appear larger. Use these simple design tips to make-over your small bathroom. The experience is likely to be rewarding as you’ll love your new bathroom look each time you enter the space!
