Interior Design: 3 Secrets for Small Baths to Live…

Karen Mills' blog

If you’re tired of your cramped small bathroom, here are 3 tips to help your bathroom live large!

1.  Monochromatic color scheme –  One of my favorite tricks to make a small bathroom look bigger begins with using one color on all the walls, furniture, floors, and decor such as bright white to give it a fresh clean look and bounce existing light around the room.

2.  Reflective surfaces –  To visually enlarge your small bathroom, use mirrors to reflect light and glass to give your space a light airy feel like we did in the shower below.

3.  Increase your floor space – Start by swapping out an existing vanity cabinet for a floating vanity/sink or pedestal style sink.  Consider swapping your swinging door for pocket doors or barn doors like the bathroom we recently completed above.

Or install your toilet tank in the wall along with more shallow sink vanities or floating vanities.

Other great ways to enhance your small bath?  Add bold wallpaper on all the walls!
