Oakville, Ontario...Do you wish you had a bigger bath? You're not alone. In fact, in a recent survey conducted by Moen Incorporated, almost half of the respondents (45 percent) wish they could make their bathroom larger. If a new bath isn't in your budget, use these tips to turn a small bathroom to one that feels spacious and soothing -- without a major remodel.

Blend in, but Make a Statement
Using an intense colour palette can weigh down a small room, so try using a cooler palette, including pastels and neutral tones, to add size and depth to a tiny space. Continue the colour scheme to the trim, vanity and door to create a "disappearing" look that will lengthen the walls. By eliminating the hard edges created by drastic changes in colour, your eye will flow smoothly across the room.

It’s also important to look at small details, like faucets and accessories, to create a statement. Choosing a fashionable, uncomplicated design, such as the Moen® Voss™ faucet can provide a beautiful focal point in your new bath. Available in single-handle, widespread, centreset and wallmount styles, the Voss faucet collection blends to best of transitional and modern styling that is the perfect fit for any bathroom. The Voss collection offers matching tub and shower faucets, and a complete selection of accessories to provide the perfect eye-catching detail.

Take a Look in the Mirror
A mirror in the bathroom can do more than just show your reflection -- it can stretch the space. Mirrors reflect both natural and artificial light, making a smaller room look bigger and brighter.

A great trick for improving your room's reflective qualities is to hang a large, horizontal mirror along the longest wall of the bath. If a large mirror is out of your budget, you can create the same effect by grouping an arrangement of smaller mirrors. For a never-ending room, position two mirrors on opposite walls to create the perfect illusion. Whatever technique you choose, mirrors are great décor pieces that won't muddle a small bath.

Say "No" to Big and Bulky
Traditional, large vanities with cabinet drawers can make an already petite-looking bath appear even smaller. In order to avoid this common misstep, either install a vanity with open storage areas or try suspending shelving for a contemporary feel. This will create a more spacious look by giving the shelving a light and airy appearance.
