You want to upgrade your bathroom, but there’s one thing holding you back. The room is small, and you don’t really have a way to add to the bathroom space.
It might feel like the situation is impossible and that you’ll never have a beautiful, luxurious bathroom, but that’s not true. Small spaces certainly make the design phase of the upgrade more challenging, but you can still have your dream bathroom with a little bit of planning and strategy. Here are a few tips to help you add luxury to a small bathroom.
Focus on Bathing
When space is limited, you really want to target your luxury upgrades. Even in a small space, you can have a great walk-in shower. It’s worth sacrificing the rest of the bathroom so that you can have a relaxing, peaceful shower whenever you want.
If soaking in a tub is worth more to you than any shower, then scrap the walk-in and get a soaking tub. Don’t settle for some prefabricated shower/tub combo. Instead, get a tub that you love, and if you need the efficiency, you can have a shower attachment above your genuine soaking tub. It allows you to shower as needed, but you aren’t skimping on the elegance of your soaking time.
It sounds counterintuitive. You have a small bathroom, so you want to cram in as much storage as possible, right? That might seem functional, but you’re really crowding your limited space, and it’s not going to feel very luxurious.
Instead, use a minimalist towel hanger and keep your linens elsewhere. Open up the storage that you do have in the bathroom, and don’t overdo it with a too-big vanity just so you have a little more storage space. Opening up the precious space you have is what will really bring the feeling of luxury to your new bathroom.
Lighting Is Everything
The lighting and bathroom colors in the room really determine how the space feels. Typically, light colors with bright or vibrant lighting make a space feel bigger. However, if that tradition doesn’t suit your tastes, that’s fine. You can pick colors that you like, but think very carefully about the lighting. Good choices here will make the difference between a small bathroom with nice stuff and an actual rest room of luxury.
