Many clients occupying older homes have bathrooms that are very small in their design, limiting the potential when it comes to refurbishing the room into something stylish. Whilst smaller bathrooms can be difficult to swing a cat in and even harder to manage, there are a few ways you can fully maximise the space you do have to make it something special.
Nothing brightens up a small space better than better access to natural light. With windows fitted with either clear or frosted glass and your windowsill clear of clutter, you can add some light or pastel-coloured curtains or blinds to maximise the amount of sunshine granted access to the space.
If your bathroom is windowless, choose a light fixture that provides as much light as possible. Stay away from heavy or domineering light shades. Providing more lighting fixtures around your mirror and additionally extending your mirror so that light can reflect around the room will do wonders. Apply some fresh white coating to your bathroom paint to provide additional brightness.
Colour and Accessories
With bathroom colour, choose bright colours such as whites, neutrals, creams and pastels so that it provides a glow when light hits it. Pastels can create the illusion of additional space, while cool shades give a feel of peace and tranquility.
It is best to avoid darker walls and fittings, but if looking for contrast, one or two items can create a focal point. Mirrors are one of the best tools for enhancing a small bathroom, providing a look of extension whilst reflecting light around the space.
