Solution: Opt for a low-profile sink or a vanity with open storage.
There are a variety of pedestal and wall-mount sink
styles that visually open up a small room. The pedestal sink takes on more of a sculptural effect in a small bath. Wall-mounted sinks open up floor space beneath, providing a visual breather. Plenty of cabinetry companies also make cabinets with dedicated open space to help ease the heavy look of solid vanities
. If you have cabinets and they're in good shape, consider removing a pair of doors in favor of a light-colored fabric skirt to add softness to the room.
