Design Matters: Getting The Most Out Of Your Master Bathroom


If you have a master bathroom, there are some things you can add to the overall design to make it as functional as possible without the need for a huge renovation. Follow some of these design ideas to get the most out of your master bathroom. 

1. Get mirrors professionally measured and installed

Are you getting by without proper bathroom mirrors? Mirrors make a huge difference in the bathroom. You should have mirrors that are sized properly just for your bathroom and hung professionally. You can get mirrors that are cut into beautiful shapes, or you can get mirrors that help reflect light from window or ceiling lights in the bathroom. Most of all, you want the mirror to work for both people who use the bathroom. It should be large enough so that two people can look into the mirror at once, even if you only have one sink in your master bathroom. 

Custom mirrors also allow for storage options, such as medicine cabinets or small shelves that are hidden behind the mirror surface. 

2. Choose a calming paint color

Your master bathroom might have a bright color that makes it seem smaller than it is, or it might have the plain builder's color that matches the rest of the house. Instead, choose a color that reflects the calm you want to feel when you walk into the master bathroom. Green, grey, or white are good colors for a bathroom because they give a feeling of cool cleanliness. 

3. Maximize storage

Storage is important for a master bathroom. If you have limited cabinet space, try adding details to the bathroom like a basket to hold towels or a rack above the door that can hold a bathrobe. You can have a shelf installed over the toilet to hold extra bottles of soap or extra rolls of toilet paper. 

4. Make design plans for two

Finally, master bathrooms should have the needs of two people in mind. If you only have a single sink, try to add space by increasing the size if the countertop. You should have lights on both sides of the mirror so that two people can have good light for their morning and evening routine. If you do have double sinks, maybe add a set of small drawers on the counter between the sinks to give enough storage for both people using the bathroom.
