Sometimes our spaces are limited, but there are solutions to offset any spatial concerns! Creating a duel purpose space such as a bathroom that also serves as a laundry room might sound impossible, yet with a little creativity, this can be an efficient option! Installing sliding closet doors allows for the washer and dryer to be concealed without intruding on the space needed for the rest of the bathroom. 

Exposed Sinks

Having an exposed or floating sink creates an open visual and gives more space than a full cabinet or vanity would. Placing a trendy bin or box underneath the sink still allows for some storage of necessary household items. 

Accent Walls

Wall tile or an accent wall gives your eye a focal point in the room creating depth and adding interest. This illusion tricks the eye into thinking there is more depth to the room than there actually is. Adding an accent wall also gives you the opportunity to be creative, fun, and express your style! Find a tile that incorporates colors, textures, shapes, or patterns that highlight other features in your bathroom to give off an organized and put together look.

Proper Lighting

With proper lighting a once small and dark space can instantly feel & look grand. Proper placement of can lights, sunroofs for natural lighting, and lighted mirrors brightens the room while highlighting focal points. This lighting placement draws your attention towards important features across the entirety of the room rather than relying on the typical one vanity light to illuminate the whole space.

Creative Storage
