Most of us dream of having a bright, spacious bathroom with a separate tub and shower. Well, whether you live that dream or not, you can make your bathroom live up to its full potential by using these strategies to give it a larger look. There are some tips that you can use some or all to make your bathroom appear twice as large.
1. With White on White
One of the easiest ways to give your room a spacious look is to use lots of white — white tile, white paint, a white vanity and so on. This noncolor-color naturally recedes, making the space look bigger. It also reflects any available light, rather than absorbing it. But using lots of white doesn’t mean the space has to lack character. Using different textural elements such as molding, pale stone or tile and fabric accents, as well as the occasional touch of metallics or wood, will retain the seamless look.
2. Less Is More
If you don’t really need maximum storage, consider using a smaller vanity to leave a bit more open space, rather than fitting in the biggest unit you can. Leaving a little negative space will make the area feel less stuffed, and thus roomier. And if your toilet or tub is next to your vanity, you’ll appreciate the extra open space even more.
