Big Ideas for Small Bathrooms

December 10, 2016
BOOKMARK

Bathrooms usually come with the smallest space in a house. However, they can be made to appear more spacious when remodelled with the right colour scheme, furniture and lighting. Listed below are ways to transform a compact bathroom into a functional, stylish retreat that suits your trendy lifestyle.

1.) Every inch counts

Vertical space in the bathroom can be fully utilized through the addition of shelves above the toilet. Alternatively, choose a slide-up mirror with hidden built-in storage to conceal toiletries, putting the clutters out of sight for a clean and extensive interior.

2.) Emphasize on storage

Building shelves into the walls provides functionality without compromising on space. If breaking the wall is not on your remodelling to-do list, choose a floor-to-ceiling cabinet as they provide similar functions while allowing the bathroom to appear spacious due to its capacious length.

3.) Install good quality lighting

Good lighting is crucial in a small bathroom. For optimum lighting, consider fixing either an overhead light or a light at each side of a mirror. This productively eliminates any shadow in the room to simplify tasks such as shaving or applying makeup. Additionally, a bigger window lets in more natural light that makes the space feel bigger. If you are missing a window, choose light bulbs that emit warm, sunny tones to achieve the same effect.

4.) Use reflective surfaces

The generous usage of mirrors or frameless glass with reflective properties visually doubles the space of a small bathroom. Bright, white tiles on the walls reflect light in the room, dramatically expanding its spaciousness.

5.) Free up floor space

Installing a vanity or a sink that can be mounted onto the wall will free up floor space, effectively making a small bathroom appear continuous and wide. A vanity that comes with deep drawers can also hide smaller items such as toiletries to reduce the clutter for a tidy and spot-free bathroom.
