Nowadays, people spend so much of their finance on not just their bedrooms but bathrooms too as they have now become a symbol of luxury and definitely, a bigger bathroom is something everybody demands off so as not to feel short of space in this area of your house. But not everyone is blessed with bigger bathrooms or sometimes It’s like not all the bathrooms of the house are bigger in size and just in case you are cursed with the smaller bathroom, here are some of the few tips that must be followed so as to make your smaller bathroom look bigger without adding any extra square feet of area to the existing ones.


Lighting is the first and the foremost factor to be considered while visualizing any space so as to get rid of darker and opaque areas in those smaller spaces. Try creating a skylight or a ventilator or a large window in such a manner that tricks your eyes to create an illusion of bigger space.

Natural light flow


Maximize the use of the mirror in your bathroom as they reflect light on the surface and gives the best result in creating an illusion of getting more space. Not just an illusion but it also creates a sort of depth to the narrow areas of the bathroom. Use the mirrors strategically in any possible way, be it full-length or a half-length or any other way..!!

Mirror on the wall


While designing or renovating any bathroom, focus on the furniture very carefully. I would suggest you use the thin legged furniture or rather a floating furniture that would hang to the wall and will keep the floor clear giving a sense of bigger area to the bathroom.

Focus on furniture


While colouring a bathroom with a smaller area, prefer to use a single colour rather than adding two-three colours. Also, not to forget the usage of white colour to most of the extent as white reflects light and creates the best result of the illusion of open space. If not white, then pale colours or off white colours or any cool colours should be preferred that actually works same as the white colour.

Color connection


When you use the tiles in any bathroom, prefer big tiles over those smaller ones. The reason behind this is smaller the tile, more the grouts and bigger the tile, less the grouts. Since these grouts break the visual essence, I would suggest you not to go for the tiles of smaller size.

Bigger tiles


While planning a storage, try to create hidden storages  that usually take less space than those conventional storages. These storages may not be that appealing but ultimately save the spaces of your poor little bathroom. There are lot of ideas behind creating these secret storages or even the recessed storages that actually saves lot of space and also gives the best possible workability.

Secret storage


Vertical lines always trick you in creating a bigger space. So when you want to use come kind of wallpaper, or a texture paint or some ceiling design, or any other kind of design, remember this pattern of vertical lines proves out to be the best, out of all the available designs and patterns in creating a larger area for any small bathroom.

Play of lines


The door of the bathroom or heighted cabinets or any sort of storages should be sliding as they tend to save a lot of space which otherwise is actually consumed by the swinging doors. Try this trick and you yourself will be amazed to see the results of open space.
