Try these simple design ideas to start enjoying your small bathroom.

Most people agree that it’s not really fun trying to live with a small bathroom. They can quickly get messy and disorganized which is frustrating to say the least. While getting a bathroom expansion is a great solution, there are also simpler design changes that you can do today to make the best of a small space. Try these simple design ideas to start enjoying your small bathroom.

Think Sinks

Take a look at your bathroom and compare the ratio of counter space against the room taken up by the sink. A large sink is helpful in many cases, but it gets in the way if it takes up your counter so that you have barely enough room to place a soap dish. And double sinks are probably twice as unnecessary, unless you regularly share that bathroom with another person. Fortunately, changing out a sink isn’t too big of a project with the right professional.  

Storage & Organization

For small spaces often it is the way that things are arranged which plays the biggest role in how much space you have. While it could be a good choice to renovate your bathroom to change the placement of the sink and toilet, you can also rearrange the placement of your storage. For example, you can have a set of cabinets above the toilet so that it’s not taking up space in the corner of the room. You can also use open shelving, and place it higher to give you more floor space to move around. 

A Coat of Paint

Changing up the look of your bathroom might not maximize the space, but it will go a long way to help you feel less cramped inside it. The general design rule is that dark colors make a room feel closed off and therefore smaller, while light colors do the opposite. Having your bathroom walls painted a brighter or paler color will make the space feel open and airy. Another great trick to create the illusion of a larger room is to use mirrors. Not only are mirrors perfect for reflecting light but they make a room feel double its size.
