Do you have an older house with a smaller bathroom that just does not work? There are a few ways around this dilemma. You can make your bathroom appear a little larger by remodeling with a few simple steps; which is far less drastic than knocking down walls and expanding your bathroom.
For many people, a complete remodel is not in the works. Therefore, creativity and a little ingenuity are necessary in order to create a visually larger space in a much smaller one.
If you have one of those old-fashioned, bulky cabinet sink combinations, the first thing you might want to consider is putting up a pedestal sink. A pedestal sink is not only a great way to upgrade your bathroom and bring it up-to-date; it is also a great way to save space.
Next, take a look at your wall space. If you have removed the cabinet sink, you may be wondering where to put all the things that were there in the first place. You could move those supplies and things to a closet down the hall as an option. If not, consider how much wall space you have and perhaps install a cabinet over the toilet.
An enclosed cabinet that is decorative and matches with the decor of the bathroom is ideal for storing things. These are great for hiding things you really do not want anyone else to see, but may need to be handy.
Painting your bathroom lighter colors will give the appearance of a larger space. With certain lighting as well, you can create the impression of a larger space. If you would like to avoid the mess, inconvenience, and added expense of knocking down walls, perhaps installing a skylight will be a great choice. Installing a skylight has a way of expanding the look and feel of a room.
Cabinets with deep drawers for extra storage and storage compartments with designer looks make a small space appear larger. You may even consider using baskets for storing towels, racks for hanging items, all of which are wonderful ideas!
Look at your wall space for decorative shelves for storage as well. Visual elements such as clear shower doors and elongated mirrors give the appearance of open and spacious areas.
So, as you can see, there are lots of ways to make a small space appear larger without a lot of money or a lot of mess. These ideas can create some real space-saving ideas along with some visual magic to make that small space open up a bit for you.
