How to Brighten Up Your Bathroom

When you enter your bathroom, it should boast a warm and inviting ambiance, especially as it’s one of the few places in your home where you can have some privacy. However, the sad truth is that some people’s bathrooms seem rather dark, dull, and dismal. If you’ve got such a bathroom, and perhaps it was the design brainchild of your home’s former owner, you will undoubtedly want to upgrade the look and feel to something brighter. Take a look at how to brighten up your bathroom.

How to Brighten Up Your Bathroom

Use Light Colors in Small Bathrooms

One of the biggest mistakes some people make when remodeling their small bathrooms is they opt for dark colors. Why is that a problem? The answer is simple: dark colors make small rooms feel even smaller than they are, and they don’t emit positive vibes.

That’s why it makes sense to consider using light colors for walls, the ceiling, the floor, and any fitted items installed in a small bathroom. When natural or artificial light projects into the bathroom, it will feel bigger than it is and give off a more inviting ambiance.

Consider Wooden Flooring

Most people think that bathrooms need to have ceramic tile or vinyl flooring. They might be popular choices, but that doesn’t mean they are the only choices for bathroom flooring. Did you know that wooden flooring is another excellent choice for bathrooms?

Wooden flooring works well in all sizes of bathrooms, so if you have a small bathroom, it will look great for your floor too. It’s also an excellent choice if you’re creating a contemporary look for your bathroom.

Get Underfloor Heating Installed

Another mistake that some homeowners make is putting too much stuff inside a small bathroom. When space is at a premium, it makes sense to find creative ways to solve conventional problems.

For example, instead of a wall towel radiator taking up lots of space in your small bathroom, have it removed and underfloor heating installed instead. Firstly, you’ll have more freedom to move around in your bathroom.

Secondly, you won’t shiver when you want to have a bath or shower on a cold winter morning. Finally, it’s an affordable heating option that works well with virtually all types of bathroom floors.
