Make Small Bathrooms Look Bigger – Part 2

Dutton Space Saver Toilet Cabinet by Hillsdale

Welcome to the second installment of our series aimed at sharing ideas for getting the most out bathrooms.

In the first ‘Make Small Bathrooms Look Bigger‘, we discussed how smaller furnishings, pedestal sinks and pocket doors can make a bathroom feel larger.

Here are a few more tips and tricks you can use to make your small bathroom feel more spacious:

Open Cabinet Legs

Installing furnishings that are open in design tricks the eye into thinking the area is more spacious than it actually is. Take the Dutton Space Saver Toilet Cabinet by Hillsdale for example. It’s slender lines and open framing allows you to see all around the piece.

Open Up the Room

Take advantage of every possible opportunity to open up the space. There are a number of ways this can be done, including replacing shower curtains with a clear glass door. This removes the compartmentalized feel and makes the bathroom one cohesive, open space.

Natural light also does wonders for making a space feel open. If privacy is an issue, get rid of window treatments and replace the window with frosted glass. This allows natural light to flood into the room while keeping prying eyes out.

Cost-Saving Tip: Use a frosted-glass spray-paint over the window, which will create the same privacy effect with no expensive construction or labor involved.
