The bathroom is one of the most important places in the house. In fact, when someone is buying a new house the kitchen and the bathroom are two of the places that they look at first. But what if you have a small bathroom? Is it impossible to have it look like it’s luxurious and enjoyable? The answer is no! there are many things that you can do to help your small bathroom look luxurious. Below are eight tips that you can use to make your small bathroom look luxurious.
Make Your Shower Walk In
If you have the means to do this, this is a great way that you can help with saving space and making your bathroom look more luxurious. Bathtubs just aren’t as appealing as they used to be, especially for small bathrooms, and having a walk-in shower also makes it easier for older family members to use.
Reconsider your Tiles
When it comes to your bathroom tiles, you have a few options.
First, using faux marble tile is a great way to help your bathroom look and feel luxurious. The tiles are really big, and they look like the real thing. So you don’t have to spend a lot of money to make it look luxurious.
Another great option is to use white or off-white subway tiles. Using lighter shades will reflect more light, making the space feel bigger than it is.
Put a Wall Niche and Bench in Your Shower
If you’re gutting the bathroom, be sure you’re putting forethought into its design and put a bench on one side. You also want to have a place to put your body wash, shampoo, conditioner, etc.
Declutter Your Bathroom
Chances are that cleaning out your bathroom is not at the top of your list. But when you have fewer things in it, it’s going to feel a lot more luxurious than if it’s clutter. Clutter will make any space, especially small spaces feel shabby, cramped, and incohesive.
Here are some tips for decluttering:
- Throw out old bottles and jars
- Remove the things that don’t belong there
- Go through your old medications and check their expiration dates. Then discard them accordingly.
Put in a Couple of Floating Shelves
These are a simple and inexpensive addition to your bathroom. It’s not a good idea to use a lot of them, especially since you don’t want your bathroom to look cramped. But when you put 2 or 3 in, it can make a huge difference.
Use that space on the wall that’s often wasted. Maybe put it above your bathtub. Or you can put it above the sink if you don’t have a cabinet above it.
Buy Some New Towels
Stained, mismatched, and thread-bare towels are going to make your bathroom appear shabby. So you want to get some new bath towels in matching or contrasting sets. This is going to help you with giving the bathroom a luxurious feel.
Use the Bathroom Window
Most windows in bathrooms are little. But they shouldn’t be ignored. When natural light streams into your bathroom, it lifts the room’s feel immediately. Not only that, but that light’s going to draw everyone’s eyes to your window. So you want to showcase the window as well.
One great way that you can do this is by putting some plants on the windowsill. You also can hang longer curtains on your bathroom window to make it appear larger than it really is.
Add Some Fresh Paint
Repainting the ceiling, cabinets, doors, and walls can make a big difference in helping the bathroom look luxurious. One good choice is classic white. Beige or grey tones also are classy, but they also give it a twist. Usually bright and light colors are the ones that you want to choose for your small bathroom since they are going to make it look more open. But you want to use a few textures.
When you use neutral, natural colors, it can make you feel like you’re in a spa.
Add Live Plants
There are so many houseplants that can thrive in your bathroom’s humid conditions. Pothos, spider plants, and many kinds of ferns can accent your bathroom with minimal upkeep, while adding a touch of life to your space. Just be sure to check on the plant’s humidity and lighting requirements so they’ll be a good fit for your specific bathroom.
You Have a Lot of Options to Make your Bathroom Feel More Luxurious
Some of these tips are easy and not too expensive, while others will require you to dig into your bank account. But all of them are going to help with making a huge difference in the way that your bathroom looks and feels, which can help if and when you decide to sell your house someday. Good luck and have fun with your planning and renovating.
