Falling in love with an older home usually means you are able to enjoy character such as crown molding and built-in bookcases. Unfortunately, older homes also tend to come with smaller bathrooms (and closets!). If renovations aren’t in your budget, follow these easy tips to make the most out of your small bathroom!
Tip 1: Be clever with your storage.
Towels don’t always have to be stored in drawers or closets. Roll up your towels and place them in a small basket on your vanity or hang them from a wooden ladder next to your shower so they are easy to reach. This allows your drawers and linen closet space to be open for other less pretty storage items.
Tip 2: Add pops of color or pattern.
It is easy to add color or pattern to your small bathroom! Consider choosing an accent wall and painting it a light color or using removable wallpaper to make a big statement.
Tip 3: Use your angles.
In order to maximize space in a small bathroom, use the angles of the room! A corner storage unit can hold toilet paper or extra toiletries, while a corner vanity and sink can maximize the amount of floor space you have to move around.
Tip 4: Make your small bathroom feel like a spa.
Adding items such as flowers, candles, or a heated towel stand to your bathroom décor can help your small bathroom feel luxurious and spa-like.
Tip 5: Make a statement with tile or mirrors.
A pretty tiled niche in the shower or a big mirror over the vanity can easily make a small bathroom space feel open and bright. Choose tile that is light in color and don’t be afraid to add an oversized mirror to maximize light.
