“For those of us with a small bathroom, the lack of space have a number of drawbacks. These can vary from lack of space for storage to the feeling of being in too enclose a space to be able to relax properly in the bathtub. Those problems might not matter to some, yet to others they do matter.”
Small bathrooms can be difficult to design and implement as every bathroom has to have certain facilities, especially if there is no space for a separate toilet. However, with sensible layouts and clever utilization of storage and functional options, even a small bathroom space could be both stunning and practical.
Many people feel that the best way to increase storage in their bathroom is to use a large cabinet. However, rather than stuffing your towels or toilet paper in a cabinet, have an open shelf. An open shelf can give warmth to the space and reduce the undesirable big pieces that would end up taking more space than you may have to spare. Some other option is stacking floating shelves offer a fashionable storage option or use Wooden crates to enable accessible storage, whether they are put on the ground, drilled into the wall or be stacked.
Making full use of the bathroom corners is yet another good small bathroom idea, although it also applies to large bathrooms. A corner sink vanity can not only provide valuable storage, but improve the appearance of the bathroom by improving its contours. A similar visual benefit comes from the use of corner bathtubs. Other corner storage tips include a corner shower caddy and corner bathroom storage cabinets.
Apart from storage, a lot of us like to spend long periods of relaxation soaking in the bathtub. A feeling of spaciousness is conducive of such relaxation, so feeling closed in by a small bathroom has a negative effect on us.There are methods of creating an illusion of space. Utilizing a light color theme helps, particularly white. You can provide relief with border tiles in another color, so that the room does not seem too cold and clinical. Bathroom rugs are another way of delivering relief without adding to the feeling of enclosure.
Mirrors reflect light and are a fantastic physical method to make a room seem much bigger. We love and recommend using big (if there’s room), bold mirrors – you can also choose mirrors with lights in. For those who have shower tile, try using a light tile throughout the shower area. Incorporating decorative tiles around shower knobs can give a shower another look for a cheap price, whilst opening the shower area. If utilizing a stand-alone bath, try tiling half the wall instead of tub to ceiling. It creates visually creates a roomier aesthetic in the bath area.
