I found a great article about how to do the most with your bathroom when you are working within a smaller space. You can easily do this without breaking the bank with the higher quality materials available at your local Home Depot or Lowe’s.
To summarize, your most important considerations in making your small space seem larger is; lighting, and getting your fixtures off the floor.
This makes sense.
When a small space is more brightly lit, it has the feeling of being more spacious.
A similar effect is achieved by getting as much off the floor as you can. You can get plumbing fixtures (sinks and toilets) that mount to the walls and do not touch the floor.
Another interesting tip is the use of colors. We’ve all heard the phrase “earth tones”. When you color your flooring dark (brown for example), your walls a lighter color (blue for example), and paint the ceiling white, it mimics the color scheme of standing outside in a clearing. Although we are not consciously aware of it, when we stand in a room whose colors mimic those found in a field outside, we feel that we’re standing in a larger space.
