Have a half-bath or powder room that’s feeling more cramped and cluttered than calm and collected? With so many older homes in the area, there’s a good chance your bathroom is on the smaller side. Thankfully, there are plenty of ways you can make your bathroom feel more spacious and open.

In this blog post, the bathroom remodeling experts at Foremost Builders share a few simple ways you can optimize your bathroom design to feel bigger than it is so you can enjoy a spa-like oasis in the comfort of your own home.

got a project in mind?

Let’s start the conversation

How To Make a Small Bathroom Feel Bigger

Choosing to upgrade your bathroom to make it feel bigger is a great way to increase the value of your property. Even a small-scale bathroom remodel has the potential to earn you a tremendous return on your investment, with most bathroom remodeling projects earning 70.1% ROI on average.

But a bathroom remodel doesn’t have to be complicated for you to get the most out of your investment. Here are four fast ways to make your space feel more spacious without straining your budget:

Use Bright Colors

Darker colors and intricate patterns can make an already small bathroom feel even more claustrophobic. Try experimenting with bright colors, lighter shades, and large-patterned wallpaper to create the illusion of a bigger bathroom.

Larger shapes and lighter colors can trick the eye into believing a space is grander than it actually is.

Revamp Your Shower

Another great way to save space while adding elegant style is to replace your shower door with a sliding glass door or shower curtain. Shower doors that pivot on hinges can be bulky and intrusive in a smaller bathroom.

By swapping this out for a sliding glass shower door, you can conserve space while making your bathroom appear larger.

Use Open Shelving

Rather than relying on cabinetry with swinging doors, open shelving concepts allow you to keep all your bathroom essentials organized without imposing on your limited space.

This will require more of a commitment to minimalist design, so be sure to only keep what’s necessary on display, placing any cleaning supplies and other non-essentials in a separate storage area, such as a linen closet or underneath the kitchen sink.

Upgrade Your Mirrors

Adding a new mirror can go a long way in adding depth to your space, making it appear larger than it actually is. Updating your bathroom mirror with a larger or metallic frame can create the illusion of more space by reflecting light and expanding the visual boundaries of your space.
