Even a small space can still be stunning and functional. It requires less work but would need utmost creativity. This means that you have to maximize every inch of the space. There should be areas for storage as well as for the basic amenities that you will need. To be able to achieve these, careful choosing is what you should do, from the accessories and to the fixtures that would add character to the place and also have the convenience of a bigger bathroom.
Here are some steps that you could follow when you plan for the design of your bathroom:
Decide where you will place the largest fixture. This can be a shower enclosure or a bathtub. Try to estimate if it will fit the area where you plan to have it.
Picking a glass shower doors for this will make the area look bigger. If you will use a curtain or a door, the vision of the person who will go into the room will be blocked. Wherein if clear or glass doors are installed, eyes will travel further to the other side of the area.
Shop for a toilet that is not too bulky in size. Install it where it will not block the entry of the door. Make sure that when you open the door, it will not bump into the edges of it.
Since it is a small space, choose light colors for the walls and for the flooring. If you will opt for a darker shade, it will make the room look more confined. Choose pastel colors to brighten the ambience or go with light earth tones for a spa feel. Pale greens and blues will invigorate you in the mornings and will relax you at night. Never pick wallpapers with busy patterns. It can overpower the space and make it appear even smaller.
Choose a sink that has an installed cabinet underneath it. This can be used to store toiletries or cleaning agents.
Have open shelves installed on the wall. This will make the room appear bigger.
A medicine cabinet or a shelving unit can be mounted above the toilet. You can choose the one with mirror. This does not only save space but it also serve two purposes.
Have windows or skylight. This will brighten the room and you have the option to open the windows to let the air in. Also, if the windows are big and wide, it will give the illusion that the bathroom is spacious.
Donít put too much stuff in the room. Crowding it with unnecessary things will make it look smaller.
It can be quite a challenge to decorate small bathrooms. Although you only have limited choices, you can still make it functional and look luxurious. This is why careful choosing should be done when you plan for the layout, paint color, fixtures, and accessories.
