When it comes to designing a bathroom, one can experiment with creativity if the space is large enough. However, designing and painting a small bathroom is always a problem. If the paint or design choice is a little over the top, a small bathroom can start looking cramped. Thus, it is important to pay a lot of attention when selecting a paint palette.
If you want to make a bathroom space look bigger, paint the ceiling in a reflective color, such as sky blue. Light blue gives the illusion of the sky and thus, the ceiling looks more receded than it actually is. Another idea is to paint clouds in white or gray on the ceiling. This helps in lending more space.
The same goes for tile colors as well. Ideally, the tiles should be of the same color as the wall paint. This way, the division between them will be blurred or not so obvious, giving your bathroom a large, spacious feel. You can also create a layering effect in the bathroom by using different hues of the same color for the accessories, tiles and wall paint.
Other useful ideas that you can use are:
- Hanging a large mirror on one of the walls so that it reflects light in the bathroom.
- Installing sliding doors instead of a regular one, so that there is no additional space required for a door that swings open.
- Having a pedestal sink instead of a regular countertop sink.
- Doing away with bathroom accessories that are unnecessary and create clutter, i.e, eliminating the unnecessary accessories.
