How to Make a Small Bathroom Look Larger

‘Most of us know what is to have a small bathroom and the struggle that comes with it when you want to decorate without making it looking busy. If you are the owner of a small bathroom, fear not, there are ways to make your bathroom look larger. One of them is the tiles you choose for your bathroom.

From colours to finishes, there are lots of ways tiles can make your bathroom look more spacious.

Colours 

As you have probably heard before lighter colours make a room look larger. It is also recommended to pick light colours if the room doesn’t get much natural light. If you decide to go for a light tile, cream and whites are usually favourites. They are easy to match and they open up the bathroom. If you love dark tiles and you want them no matter what, we would say go for them on the condition your bathroom has lots of natural light. Lightning and dark tiles are an excellent match and creates a cosy atmosphere. Dark greys and black are very trendy at the moment and give a stylish touch.

Matching Grout Lines 

Along with the choice of the colour of the tile, the grouting colour is also very important. For instance if you opt for a smaller tiles and you put it together with a contrasting grout colour, you can end up with a chaotic and busy aesthetic and as a result your bathroom can look even smaller. For a small bathroom you should match tile and grow colours, this creates a feeling of fluidity that will make the bathroom look larger, like if there was more wall or floor space.

Medium Tiles

The size of your tile is important. Of course the choice is yours, but is better to go for larger tiles, however you should be careful there are not too large or you can end up with a bathroom that feels tight. So go for something that avoids extremes, not to big and not too small either. A medium tiles will maintain a balance in the room and paired with a light colour like a creamy one you will have the much desired airy feel.

Bouncing Finishes 

Besides the colours, the finish you choose is also important for your bathroom. Since you are trying to make your bathroom look larger you need finishes that shine. Finishes that shine are perfect to bounce light no matter if it is artificial or natural. This reflection will give more light to the room and therefore it will give the illusion of a more spacious bathroom. The best finishes for this are gloss, glaze and satin finish. We know matt tiles are smashing it right now but they are not suitable for bathrooms that are trying to look bigger.

As you can see it is not difficult to make a bathroom look larger, you only need a few tricks and choose the right tile and you will have a beautiful bathroom!
