For many people, the bathroom is an area of relaxation and comfort. While this is true, a small or cramped bathroom isn’t very comfortable. While it may not be feasible to knock out walls to achieve this more spacious feel, there is another solution – the smart use of cabinets and storage solutions.
If you are ready to learn how to use the cabinets in your bathroom to their full potential and to help the space look larger, then use the tips here.
Stick with the theme of your bathroom and select a color for cabinets that will blend in mono-chromatically. If you can, choose the lightest shade you can find. White (and similar colors) are going to reflect light – this can be natural light from the sun, or lighting supplied by your fixtures. When the light touches the surfaces of your cabinet, it is going to bounce back, helping the space feel bigger, brighter, and much more spacious. If you want to trick your mind into believing that your bathroom is somewhat larger, install some white tiles and paint the ceilings and walls white.
If you have wood cabinets and want to keep the natural color, then choose a lighter wood, rather than a darker one. The light-colored wood is going to provide the same benefits that the white paint does, making the room feel larger.
Think about the spaces in your bathroom you don’t use. One example is above the door. In most cases, the area around your door is going to be vacant. This is especially true if you have higher ceilings than the minimal clearance. You can install cabinets or shelves to hold your scrubs, bath salts, and more. You can also use the additional storage space for extra toilet paper, or cleaners to free up your space under the sink.
Think about having cabinets installed that extend all the way up to your ceiling. By adding color at a vertical height, it is going to cause your eye to go up, and as a result, enlarge the feel and appearance of space in your bathroom. It’s also a smart way to use the space over your head. By doing this, you won’t feel as cramped when you are in the bathroom.
An open storage shelf is going to trick the mind into thinking that it is not occupying as much space. This is because your eyes are going to see what is under it. You can also use this as a display rack and keep your necessities available, but in a decorative manner.
