Transform your Small Bathroom into a Spacious Oasis

When designing a bathroom, finding the right balance between your need for plumbing, storage, mirrors, lighting and other fixtures with your desire for space can be quite the challenge. If space is limited, configuring all the essential pieces to fit cohesively might feel like you’re putting together a giant puzzle.

If you don’t have the luxury to add more square footage, visually expanding the room with a few simple design changes can make your bathroom feel more like a master suite and less like a powder room.

From changing your bulky vanity to creating a barrier-free shower, these design upgrades from Infinity Drain will help make a compact bathroom feel twice as large!

Brighten Your Space with Light Neutral Tones

Neutral color pallets have become a popular choice for bathroom surfaces. The minimalist effect of soft natural colors creates a relaxed atmosphere. When light in the room reflects against the light hues it results in the appearance of a much larger space.

Incorporate a Large Mirror

Large mirrors have a very powerful effect in small bathrooms. They create an optical illusion that tricks the eye into thinking a space is much larger than it is.

Install a Floating Vanity 

Finding the right vanity for a small bathroom can be tricky. You’ll want to incorporate one that has enough storage without compromising on space. A floating vanity is an ideal solution. By not taking up any floor space, sightlines are uninterrupted so the room looks more spacious.

Use Large Format Tile

Smaller areas can benefit from larger tiles. Small tiles make a space look busy and cluttered. Larger tiles utilize fewer materials and have less grout lines. This establishes a clean look with less visual interruptions for a seamless transition throughout the room.

Upgrade your Shower With a Linear Drain

Create a wet room or open concept look in your bathroom by installing a linear drain in your shower. Linear drains allow the floor to be sloped in one direction rather than the four directions required by center drains allowing for the elimination of shower curtains or even shower doors. This will remove any unnecessary visual barriers that make a room feel tight and closed off.
