If your home sports a bathroom that is 60 square feet or less, then you know what I mean. Small can be beautiful, but it rarely is, unless someone has put a lot of thought and some red-design work into that tiny bath.
- Have light, bright colors on the walls and countertops. Small and dark is depressing. Small and bright is cheery!
- Make the most of the space available for storage. This means the vanity as well as shelving built into the wall. Yes, I mean “into”, not hung on the wall.
- Big mirrors make the space look larger as well. I’ve said it before, but don’t forget it. If a wall is really small, how about a wall-to-wall mirror? It can do wonders for the space.
- Have compact fixtures installed. Yes, they make toilets that don’t stick so far out into the room, and there are small lav sinks that will leave you a few more square inches on the countertop. Every square inch matters in small bathrooms!
There are more things you can do. Why not ask your favorite contractor for some suggestions?
