12 Ideas For Small Bathroom DesignEvery person that has a small bathroom is interested in ways of making their bathroom appear larger.  Remodeling the bathroom is not always an option and in many cases, remodeling the bathroom would be very expensive.  There are a number of ways that a person can use to make their small bathroom seem larger without having to undertake any heavy construction.
1. Soft Color for Walls
One of the easiest ways that a person can alter their small bathroom design to make it appear larger is to choose light soft colors for the décor of the bathroom.  

2. Accent with Color
Bright, bold colors can be used in small bathrooms, assuming you reserve them for accents only. Going overboard with bold or dark colorstend to make the bathroom appear tighter and more intimate.  

3. Visual Accents
If your bathroom has wallpaper, avoid using large prints or busy pattern. Instead, choose very subtle wallpaper patterns. Better yet, keep one wall free from any pattern at all. Consider making the largest wall in the small bathroom into a mural of an open space.  

4. Light Tones of Bathroom Flooring
Just like light colors on the walls, light colors on the flooring of the small bathroom will help make the bathroom appear roomier and more open.  The most popular colors for a light bathroom floor are tans, light grays, and light blues.  By incorporating these colors into the flooring of your small bathroom design, you will have the basis for a light colored decorating scheme that will make your bathroom appear more open.

5. Pedestal Sink
Another small bathroom design that can be used to make a bathroom appear larger is to replace a large vanity or countertop with a slimmer, pedestal sink.  A pedestal sink can be found in many different styles, colors, and materials, allowing them to be matched to any décor.  By placing a pedestal sink in the small bathroom, you can open up the bathroom space by another ten percent.

6. Classic Fixtures
When selecting fixtures for your bathroom, keep in mind they are going into a small space. Choose simple designs made from smooth surfaces, such as ceramic and marble, and opt for light, neutral tones.
7. Additional Lighting Fixtures
Additional lighting in a small bathroom can make a world of difference in the way the space in the bathroom is perceived.  Consider adding additional light fixtures or using higher wattage bulbs, as appropriate. By making the bathroom brighter and more inviting, it seems that the space has opened up and the walls are farther apart.  

8. Increase Natural Light
There are a variety of ways that additional lighting can be added to the small bathroom without taking up more space than is already used, including installing a new window, or even putting in a skylight.

9. Limit Items in Bathroom
Many people choose to open up the amount of space available in their small bathroom by greatly reducing the amount of items that they place into the bathroom.  Items such as storage shelves, hampers, and decorative items all take up valuable space in a small bathroom and the bathroom will appear much larger if these items are removed and the things that they hold are stored somewhere else.  
10. Consider Storage Outside the Bathroom
Some people choose to place a small storage cabinet in their hallway near the bathroom as a place to put all of the things that they would normally keep in their bathrooms. It's also a good idea to consider putting laundry hampers in the bedrooms instead of in the bathroom. Extra supplies and paper products can even be stored in the pantry.

11. Adding Mirrors
Adding additional mirrors to the bathroom will also help the bathroom appear bigger than it really is.  Placing additional mirrors in the bathroom will help to capture all of the available light and reflect it back into the room to make it brighter.  Adding extra mirrors to the room will also add depth to the room, as the mirrors reflect each other and make the walls appear farther away.  

12. De-Clutter
Other ways you can use to make a small bathroom design appear larger include removing clutter and extra items. Instead of storing all of your beauty items on the counter, place them in a cabinet or in the medicine chest when not in use. The more items are visible in a small bathroom, the more cramped the space will look and feel.

Using these subtle design changes to modify the look of your small bathroom is easy, inexpensive, and most of these design changes can be completed in a few hours.  By changing your small bathroom design, you can make your small bathroom appear larger within the space of a day.

5 Essentials For Small Bathroom Remodeling{mosimage}Remodeling a small bathroom can be a hectic experience for even the most organized people.  There are so many things to take into consideration, including which colors to use, which fixtures to choose, and what style of bathroom appliances you would like to include in your design plan.  When planning to redesign or remodel a small bathroom, there are 5 essential things that you must keep in mind when arranging your design.

1.  Choose Bathroom Appliances And Fixtures That Are Small
Although having the long, luxurious soaking bathtub may seem attractive, it is just not practical in a small bathroom.  Choosing smaller appliances and fixtures for a small bathroom will open up the amount of space that is available in the bathroom, which makes the bathroom appear larger and more comfortable.  Many people choose to place slim pedestal sinks and doorless showers in their small bathroom area so that they will have a functional full bath in a small amount of space.

2.  Choose Colors That Are Light
Studies have repeated shown that using light colors to decorate an area makes the area appear more open and spacious.  For this reason, dark bold colors should be avoided in a small bathroom as they will make the bathroom appear much smaller and more claustrophobic, while light soft colors will make the walls appear farther apart and the available space seem more open.  The walls are not the only things that should be covered with a light color as dark fixtures in the bathroom will also make the bathroom appear smaller.

3.  Keep The Lighting In The Bathroom Bright
{mosimage}A small bathroom that is brightly lit by attractive lighting appears much larger than a bathroom that is lit dimly with muted lighting.  There are many ways to add additional lighting into a small bathroom without taking up any more room or making the room appear too crowded with lighting.  Some people choose to place recessed lighting in the walls and ceiling of the bathroom to add plenty of additional light while avoiding having to match the lighting to the previously chosen décor or having to purchase bulky lighting fixtures for the bathroom.

4.  Do Not Place A Large Amount Of Storage Space In The Bathroom
It is important to remember that there is a limited amount of space in a small bathroom and everything that is placed in the bathroom reduces the amount of space that the user has to move comfortably.  If possible, storage items should be placed outside of the small bathroom, such as a closet in the hall or in a small cabinet placed in a convenient location.  By reducing the amount of items located in the bathroom, you will create more open space for maneuvering and the bathroom will seem more comfortable.

 5.  Choose Soft Patterns And Accents For The Bathroom
One of the biggest mistakes that many people make when remodeling their small bathroom is
