More often than not, bathrooms are the smallest rooms in the house and can quickly become cramped with essential furniture, towels, toiletries and medical supplies. If you have a small bathroom and you’re looking for ways to make the space feel more open and airy, we’ve got a simple yet effective trick for you to try, and it involves using bathroom cabinets!
While the idea of adding furniture to your small bathroom sounds counterproductive, we can assure you that bathroom cabinets are the ideal solution to small bathroom problems. Not only can they replace any bulky furniture you have and reduce the amount of clutter on display, but mirrors have a clever way of making a room feel bigger than it really is.
Why is it important to have a great bathroom space? Well, if you’re a fan of keeping up with interior design trends, then you’ll know that modern bathrooms are all about being large and open. For example, celebrities are following suit and are creating bathrooms utilising open-plan spaces and large mirrors (and they look undeniably good!)
A great bathroom space can impress dinner guests or when you have friends and family to stay, and can also be a great feature if you’re trying to sell your home. If you’re planning on having some friends or in-laws to stay soon or you’re thinking of putting your house up on the market, it can be a beneficial idea for you to look at your bathroom design and see how you can maximise on space, or at least give the illusion of a larger bathroom.
The Mirror Illusion
Mirrors are more than just an essential piece of furniture. They can also be cleverly used in smaller spaces such as bathrooms to give the illusion of depth and open space. How does it work? Well, mirrors can reflect both natural and artificial light to make a room look brighter during the day and night. This brightness can open up a room, giving the effect of a larger space.
You can also position mirrors in particular ways to make a room feel bigger. Decide on a focal point in your bathroom such as a wall decoration, vase of flowers or other bathroom accessory and angle your mirrors towards it. This simple trick gives the illusion of more depth in any room.
If mirrors happen to be your favourite decoration for a room then you’re in luck! You can use them collectively to reflect light in all sorts of directions whilst adding character to your room. Gather mirrors in a variety of sizes and shapes and position them carefully around the room to capture the light and light up even the darkest corners of your bathroom.
We have a wide range of mirrored bathroom cabinets that are the perfect addition to any bathroom. We also have illuminated bathroom cabinets. This hint of lighting will work well with the mirrored finish to keep a room looking fresh and bright.
Keep Your Space Organised
Clutter and general bathroom items can take away from that fresh and open space you’re to create and can make a bathroom feel messy, crowded and unorganised. Removing visible items and organising them in a bathroom cabinet can really help to maximise on space and keep surfaces clean and clutter-free.
Our selection of bathroom cabinets come in a variety of shapes and sizes so you can pick the one that fits perfectly into your bathroom whilst giving you enough space to organise your toiletries and bathroom essentials.
Say Goodbye to Dark Colours
If you have dark coloured furniture such as drawers and cabinets in your bathroom, this can really have an effect on the overall feel of the room, especially if you also have dark walls and floors. Darker colours are known for making things look smaller, and the darkness can make a room appear dull which will add to a claustrophobic feel of a very small bathroom.
By replacing dark and bulky drawers with sleek mirrored bathroom cabinets, you can remove any dark elements and make a room feel bigger and brighter.
Open Up More Space
Having a lot of furniture on the floor of your bathroom can make a room feel cramped and small. We recommend using a bathroom cabinet that affixes to the wall to open up more walkway room and floor space. This way, you’ll literally be creating more space in your bathroom and can have more opportunities to incorporate sleek bathroom accessories into your bathroom.
You should also consider removing any large or bulky furniture in your bathroom if possible, especially if you aren’t utilizing them and everything can be out into a sleeker bathroom cabinet. Large furniture takes up essential space in a bathroom and can limit the accessibility you have.
