The bathroom should be a relaxing space where you can hide away and get a bit of peace and quiet from time to time as well as being a functional space. But that’s hard to achieve if you’ve got a very small bathroom. There isn’t room for a bath and it always feels cluttered and dark in there. You might just think that you’ll have to live with it because you can’t do much with space, but that isn’t true. It’s all about the way that you design and decorate the bathroom. These are some of the easiest ways to get more out of your small bathroom
A Good Vanity
In any small space, storage is one of the most important things. If you don’t have a place for everything, that’s when space starts to feel cluttered and small. But if you’ve got good storage options, you can keep everything neat and tidy and open the room up a bit. The first step when you’re trying to come up with a new bathroom style is choosing a good vanity. The vanity and sink form the centerpiece of the bathroom and you’ll build everything else around it, so make sure that you choose wisely. Style is obviously important but when you’re working with a small space, you need to make sure that you’ve got something with good storage. Often, it’s best to choose a vanity and sink that fits in the corner, rather than flat against the wall. This will open up a bit more floor space in there and make the room feel bigger.
A floating toilet that is attached to the wall is such a great space saver. It doesn’t seem like much but having that open space underneath the toilet can really open up space and make it look a lot bigger than it is. It also makes it so much easier to clean the bathroom because you don’t have to deal with that annoying space behind the toilet that is impossible to reach.
A lot of people go for shower doors instead of shower curtains because they look more stylish and they’re easier to keep clean, but when you’re trying to decorate a small bathroom, they’re not the best option. They open outwards and that often fills the whole room so you’ll feel incredibly cramped every time you’re getting in and out of the shower. As long as you get a shower curtain that is machine washable and you’ve got a good extractor fan in the bathroom, you don’t need to worry about it getting too dirty.
Watch Out For Sharp Corners
Sharp corners are always a bad idea in a small bathroom. You’re more likely to bump into them in a small space so they’re a bit of a hazard. They also take up more space because they protrude further into the room. You’d be surprised how much space you can save if you round the corners on the shower and the vanity.
Having a small bathroom doesn’t mean that it can’t be a nice relaxing space as long as you decorate it right.
