12 Ways to Make Any Bathroom Look Bigger

12 Ways to Make Any Bathroom Look Bigger

Almost everyone wants a vast, spacious, and elegantly-looking bathroom with a separate tub and shower. The interesting thing is whether you`re living in your dream house or not, you can achieve the kind of bathroom feel you want.


In this article, you`ll learn things like how to make a small room look bigger with flooring, making your bathroom feel spacious, and keeping your space clutter-free. From choosing your color palette and essential fixtures to employing a few clever visual tricks, you can use some or all of these tips to make your bathroom appear bigger.

1. Brighten Your Bathroom Space

Bring in as much light as possible; you`ll find that bright, well-lit spaces often feel more spacious than dark and drab ones. Use the same color on the walls for your floor tiles to make the room look bigger. Using different colors can make the room look compartmentalized and smaller.

To further increase the brightness, you can use sheer window coverings to bring in more natural light.

2. Streamline Your Storage

To ensure you don’t use up all the space in every corner for storing stuff, try to minimize the things you store in the bathroom. Anything that sticks out of the wall should take as little space as possible. Otherwise, they`ll eat up all the space.

3. Go Airy With White on White

All-white finishes will not only make your bathroom come alive, but they will also make the room feel bigger. Using white all over is one of the easiest ways to give your bathroom a spacious look — use white paint, white tile, a white vanity, and white floor color to make the room bigger.

4. Try Tone-on-Tone Color Mix

In case the idea of stark white color doesn’t work for you, there are other cool color options you can go for. A tone-on-tone palette, for instance, in faint hues like powder blue, warm beige, and soft grays can create a super cool and spacious feel in your bathroom.

5. Use a Floating Vanity

A floating vanity can be the trick that solves the dilemma in a tight bathroom where there is a demand for space. It’s a nice sight, and it gives you lots of room to store your daily essentials.

6.  Add Mirrors

Install large mirrors – larger than you normally would install. The reflection of light will open up your small bathroom space into one that feels a bit more spacious.

7. Take Out the Clutter

Here`s a simple rule of thumb: if you don’t need an item regularly, you should store it elsewhere. Avoid the temptation of storing things you don’t necessarily need in the bathroom.

8. Sliding Door Instead of Swinging Door

Depending on how small your room is, swinging doors can take up close to half of the room. A sliding door won’t encroach on the limited space you have in your bathroom.

9. Use a Glass Panel

Another great way to make your space look spacious is by replacing your shower curtain with a glass panel or door. The entire square footage of the room will be visible at a glance, especially when you’re in the shower. If you’d like more privacy, you can install a frosted or tinted glass panel.

10. Use Light-Colored Flooring

You can use a light floor color to make the room bigger. This a tip that works any time, regardless of how small your bathroom is.

11. Go Vertical

If your bathroom has small square footage, it is better to use vertical elements. A tall, thin mirror and a bold accent color on a tiny wall can boost the height of a small space and make the room feel bigger and spacious.

12. Keep the Floor Clear

On a final note, let’s look at how proper space management on the floor of your room can lead to more space. Then there’s no need to cover the floor with vanity materials, as this will cramp up the remaining space. A floating sink or pedestal is also a great idea in situations, where space is needed.

Final Words

Now that you know the common tricks you can apply to make your bathroom look bigger, it’s time to fold your sleeves and get cracking.
