How to Make a Small Bathroom Appear Larger

If you don’t have the time or money to knock a wall down and make your bathroom bigger, there are plenty of steps you can take to trick your eyes into thinking the space is larger than it actually is. From large remodeling projects to simply DIY tasks, the following ideas can help all homeowners improve their bathroom.

Ditch Shower Curtains

Shower curtains cut your bathroom off and make your bath or shower seem darker. For that reason, you should replace your shower curtain with glass doors. This creates a more open space and utilizes the entire room visually. In addition, you can increase the amount of lighting throughout your bathroom, which also increases the overall appearance.

Utilize Mirrors

Mirrors are a popular trick in home decorating to make a space look bigger. In a bathroom, they can serve many purposes. Not only do they serve a functional purpose for you as you get ready for work in the morning, but they also cover double the size of your bathroom visually. In addition, it can often be an easier DIY bathroom project to cover a wall with a mirror rather than tiling it.

Add Windows

The brightness of natural lighting plays a large role in the appearance of your bathroom. Shadows can make a small bathroom look smaller, so if possible, you should install new windows as part of your bathroom renovation. Lighting also helps you see better while you apply your makeup or style your hair.

Convert Tub

Lastly, you might be taking up unnecessary space with a large tub that you never use. If this is the case, you should hire an experienced company to provide you with a professional tub to shower conversion.
