October 23, 2018

Bathrooms are an important consideration when selling your home. Make sure they are CLEAN and uncluttered. Small bathroom?  Here are 10 easy ways to quickly make a small bathroom look bigger and make the most of your limited space.

1. Mirrors – Add larger mirrors to reflect light and provide the illusion of space.

2. Lighten Up – Lighting doesn’t have to be harsh, but adequate lighting is a must.

3. Shelving – Open up the room with clear glass shelves.

4. Monotone Decorating – Use the same light colors on walls, countertops, floors and cabinetry to allow for the eyes to flow through the space.

5. Negative Space – Consider using a pedestal sink which takes less space than traditional cabinets.

6. Declutter – Find locations out of sight for toiletry items.

7. Heads Up – Use the vertical space in the room too, tall cabinets provide storage and add interest to the room.

8. Store Mats and Towels – Keep towels and floor mats out of sight unless in use. A simple hand towel in a complementary color tone is all most guests need.

9. Pocket Doors – Where you have room, use pocket doors or popular barn sliding doors to add extra space inside the bathroom.

10.Glass – Clear glass shower doors are a great way to remove a visual barrier and make the room seem larger.
