  1. Floor Space: Small bathrooms are short on storage, functionality, and floor space. But you’d be surprised how much of a difference simply freeing up some floor space can make for your Gilbert bathroom. By installing open shelving vanities and/or pedestal sinks, we can create the illusion that your bathroom is much larger then it actually is.


  1. Vertical Space: While the floors tend to open up a space, you still need to utilize as much storage as possible. That’s where vertical spaces come into play. Open shelving is a great way to create more storage by using the limited space you do have.


  1. Outside Space: Take a look at the space just outside of your bathroom. Is it wasted space? Many times in Gilbert homes, the space just outside of the bathroom can be effectively utilized for more storage. It just takes a bit of ingenuity and imagination.


  1. Illusions with Materials: The types of materials used in the bathroom, and how those materials are arranged, can create the illusion of a larger bathroom. For example, tiles that are aligned vertically rather then horizontally can draw the eyes upward, making the ceiling appear higher and the room appear larger.

Keep it simple with a simplistic design to every element within the bathroom, from tiles on the floor and walls to mirrors, vanities and floating storage shelves.
