1. Check yourself out
Just kidding, but seriously… A great way to make a small bathroom appear larger is to add mirrors! Look to install larger, and MORE, mirrors than you normally would. This is because the reflected light opens up the area into one that feels far more roomy.
2. Brighten up your life
To make the bathroom look bigger think bright colors. Rooms with lighter color patters feel more spacious compared to darker ones. Here’s a few tips:
- Walls – Try painting the ceiling and walls the same color (light) to create the illusion of a bigger area. Multiple colors can make the room feel compartmentalized and smaller.
- Windows – Who doesn’t love natural light? If you have windows in the bathroom use sheer covering to maximize the light in the room
- Lighting – Let’s say you don’t have a window in the bathroom, tha’s ok! Add some light fixtures to increase the lighting which will make the bathroom look more spacious.
3. Keep it out of sight
Nobody likes clutter, you don’t and your buyers won’t. To make the bathroom feel larger, try to make the storage as flush with the walls as possible. A nice tip is to install recessed shelving whenever possible. Even in staging, reduce the items in the bathroom to the necessities.
4. Show of your glass
Glass shower doors not only look great, but they also make the room feel larger. To take it another step further, use clear glass instead of frosted. Use the same logic with your bathroom frame as well, less is more! Also, use the same tile from floor to ceiling in the shower. I know you love the trendy Moroccan tiles, but save that for a big bathroom! Just like with the walls, different colors can feely choppy.
