Are you frustrated with the lack of space in your bathroom? Unsure about how you can open up your room without breaking the bank? There are a few simple ways that you can give your bathroom the illusion of space without it costing a fortune. Read on for our top five design tips.
Being clever with your storage can help maximize the space you have. If your bathroom is full of towels, make up items, cleaning products etc. then using hanging shelves or wall mounted cabinets will allow you to tidy away your things. Also, utilizing bathroom counter solutions, such as jars for cotton buds or room underneath to store towels, will really help to free up space.
Pick your palette
Pastel colours, such as sea blue, pale green and even a light yellow can really make a room look bigger. Mixing up colours and using large wall patterns will help open up the space and can give your bathroom a nice relaxing feel – exactly what you want at the end of a long day!
Picking your bathroom furniture may seem like a mammoth task if you have a small space, but if you choose wisely, you can really open up your room. Installing extra towel bars will help with storing your towels, and choosing a corner sink can eliminate the sense of clutter that a normal sink brings. You could also use a full wall mirror to give the illusion of a bigger room.
When tiles are installed in a bathroom, especially larger tiles, it can make a room seem smaller than it actually is. Instead, look into bathroom cladding. These wall panels are surprisingly easy to install, and don’t require a wall to be flat, saving you money on preparation. Wall cladding is also very simple to keep clean, and eliminates grouting mould all together.
Light the whole room
Clever lighting can make a room feel much bigger than it actually is. Installing lights in an alcove or behind your bath can illuminate all areas of the room, giving the illusion of space. Dimmer lights or spotlights are a good choice for this, as they can also bring a modern feel to your bathroom.
These are just a few design tips which can help you make your bathroom look bigger and allow you to stay within budget.
