Michael and I have been living in our new home for about a month now, and we’re loving it! Now that the vast majority of our belongings are moved in, I’ve been getting to work on organizing and decorating. We have two bathrooms in our home, but I’ve been focused on our main bathroom for now, as the other one will need some reno love in the future. Our bathroom is pretty much the standard size, but having it be the one we use daily and one for guests, it’s small.
It’s important to me to maximize the space in our bathroom, but it can be a bit tricky, as I also want to make it appear larger than it really is.
Today, I’m sharing some tips to help maximize space in a small bathroom that I have discovered along the way. If you’re in the same boat, I hope you can implement some of these tips in your own small bathroom space.
TIPS TO MAXIMIZE SPACE IN A SMALL BATHROOM TO MAKE THE ROOM APPEAR BIGGER:
1. White/Light Colored Paint // One of the things that never fails to brighten up a space is white or light colored paint. It automatically convinces us that the space is more open and bigger than what it is. This is why I chose to paint our bathroom white and a very light gray. It’s amazing how much a little paint can do for a small bathroom.
2. Utilize The Space Under The Sink // When you have a space bathroom, you want to steer clear from any kind of clutter. While a trash bin is a necessity, it can easily take up a good amount of space. Even though our main bathroom also has to act as our “master bathroom” in, we don’t store many beauty and healthcare needs in here. This meaning that we have a decent amount of space under the bathroom sink, so that’s where our trash bin goes, along with the toilet brush cleaner.
Even using the space under the sink for the not-so cute things, we still have more than enough room to put some of our essentials and extra necessities.
3. Shelving // When you have a bathroom that is lacking storage, shelving is typically a go-to. There are many different shelving units out there. While over-the-toilet storage units are popular, in my opinion, I think they can make the room seem even smaller than it is, since it takes up so much wall space. What’s my recommendation? Turn to floating shelves! Floating shelves are all the rave and while serving their purpose, they still help the space appear more open.
4. Canisters & Baskets // Canisters and baskets are the perfect source of storage to place on floating shelves. You also have a ton of freedom in choosing these types of storage containers depending on your choice of decor style. When I saw this clear jar, I knew we had to get it. It’s the perfect piece for a small bathroom.
When it’s that time of the month, I use it to store my Seventh Generation™ Comfort Applicator Tampons. Seventh Generation™ Comfort Applicator Tampons are a new product. The smooth, BPA-free plastic applicator is designed for your comfort and made with 95% plant-based materials. Their Free & Clear, Certified Organic Cotton Tampons are hypoallergenic and made for your most sensitive skin with no added fragrances. They have effective leak protection and they’re available in Regular and Super absorbency.
They also have Free & Clear Pantiliners and Free & Clear fragrance-free Ultra-Thin Pads with Wings. Free & Clear means the product does not have any sort of fragrance, natural or artificial. They’re both whitened without chemicals containing chlorine and Seventh Generation’s innovative PureFit™ design. The PureFit™ design offers an enhanced fit, safely trapping fluid away from the skin to always keep you dry for reliable, leak-free protection and comfort.
I purchase Seventh Generation™ products at Target. They’re easily found in the feminine care aisle or on Target.com. Pro tip: Be sure to check the Cartwheel app for offers!
5. Small Wall Decor // Instead of hanging a large print that’d take up the majority of the wall space in your bathroom, turn to smaller wall decor. I love these 3 framed prints for our bathroom. They add character to the room, without taking up too much wall space.
6. White Shower Curtain // In a small bathroom, you want to stray from having busy, patterned shower curtains. They’re just too much if you’re looking to make your space appear larger than it is. I decided to go with a white cloth shower curtain. I love it! It is perfect for our bathroom.
These findings have been so helpful for me in making our small bathroom appear larger than it is, while still having it be intentional.
