Does your current bathroom seem too big? Are you having trouble figuring out what to do with the whole room in order to make it feel homier and like it is not swallowing you up? Many people complain that their bathroom is too small and they are tripping over everything in order to get things done, but you seem to have the opposite problem. If you have a large bathroom that you are not sure what to do with, here are some tips that you can use in order to make your bathroom feel cozier.
Use Potted Plants
The first thing that you can do is add in some potted plants to the décor. Doing this will fill up some of the vertical height that is in the room, which can be especially useful when you have tall ceilings. Make sure that you have enough light in your bathroom to counterbalance the dark plants that you put there.
Paint the walls
Another way to make your large bathroom feel cozier is to paint the walls. When you pick the right colors, you will be able to trick the eye into believing that the room is actually smaller than it is. You may want to think about choosing a color that is a darker shade. Lighter colors tend to make a room look larger than it is while a dark color will make it feel smaller, thus accomplishing the goal of a cozier room. However, if your room lacks light – whether natural or artificial – you may want to only paint one or two walls in the dark color, to prevent the room from feeling too dark.
Fill up the walls
Sometimes a room can just feel too big because there is too much wall pace around you. If you have a large bathroom and the walls are all painted white, you are going to feel like the space goes on and on. An easy way to fix this problem is to fill up that wall space. To do this in your bathroom, just find a couple of pictures or a large mirror to hang on the walls. You can use a couple of family photos just some simple paintings of nature, your favorite hobbies or pastimes, or abstract art. These pictures can help set a gentle mood in your home and will close in the large space to make it feel cozier. Aside from art, you can hang shelving units, which could help increase storage space in the bathroom. In addition, adding a towel bar – or two – can help take up wall space.
If you have a really large bathroom area that you are trying to make cozier, it might be a good idea for you to add in some chairs. The more room you have the more chairs that you can add into the space. If you have enough room, consider adding a makeup table with a cushioned bench and a mirror. Adding storage drawers will give you a place to store makeup, hair dryers, and other beauty products. These will take up a lot of the extra room that is in your bathroom along with providing you or your guests a place to sit down while they are putting on their makeup or getting ready for the day.
Get a new countertop
If the countertop in your current bathroom just consists of a little sink and nothing else, you may be able to fill up the space a little bit with a new granite countertop. There are many different options to choose from and this can increase the storage area that you have in the room along with making it feel cozier. Depending on the amount of room that you have available in the bathroom, you may be able to increase the countertop from holding one sink to being able to hold two sinks and give you more room for two people to get ready at one time.
Create a little nook
This can be a fun way for you to make the large bathroom your own. Do you keep a lot of magazines or books in your bathroom to read while you are in there? Then you could set up a little area or shelving in a corner to house all of these things. Take some time to be creative with the area that you will be creating. If you have a large bathroom then you are going to have plenty of room to work with.
These are all great ways to make a large bathroom feel – and look – a lot cozier than it really is. Make sure that the items you choose blend well with the overall décor and style of the bathroom. This will help minimize the amount of bathroom that you need to remodel.
