How to make the most out of your small bathroom

When it comes to your home, you do not always have control of what is inside. This is particularly true when it comes to the actual size of each room, as - barring a major remodel or restructuring of the space - the size an area is will be all you have to work with. The good news is that a bathroom doesn't need to be huge in order for you to use it effectively, you just need to be smart and economical with what you have available to you.

There are lots of great ways you can effectively use a bathroom that is tight on space. There are even some clever tricks you can implement to make the bathroom seem larger than it actually is, such as having a big mirror installed on one of the walls. This is an old, but surprisingly effective, way to make a space appear more open that it is in reality. This works when the light pouring in from the window or from artificial sources and bounces off the glass, highlighting all corners of the room. Recessed lighting will also help keep the walls from feeling overloaded with light fixtures.

If you have hired a DC contractor to work on your bathroom, one of the things you will need to tackle is the layout of the space. Believe it or not, it is actually possible for you to fit a larger shower in a small bathroom. All you need to do is combine the shower and bathtub into one space, or get rid of the bathtub entirely. This will give you plenty of floor space to work with and you will be able to have a more luxurious shower space than you would have otherwise.
