We can help transform your cramped bathroom into a comfortable space by using clever storage solutions and fittings. Small bathroom design can also be a great excuse to add more fun or colour, pulling focus away from the size of the room. Here are a few tips for making the most of a small space to create a luxurious bathroom.
Don't focus on the size, focus on the potential
Just because you have a small bathroom doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style. A small bathroom can go big in colour unlike larger bathrooms, being bold can suit almost every smaller space. Obviously if you despise colour you can avoid this trick but a small bathroom is a great opportunity to go bright and bold. By painting all the surfaces the same colour you will create an illusion of more space and continuity. As an alternative you can also keep the floors dark and the walls light to make the walls expand upwards.
Using mirrors to create more space and light is a trick people have been using in their homes for centuries, keep the mirrors flush to the wall or install a mirrored cabinet to offer up some clever extra storage. Whatever lighting you have in the room will be reflected by the mirrors so place any wall-mounted lights directly opposite them to maximise the effect.
It goes without saying that storage is at a premium when small bathrooms are concerned. There is a lot of wasted space in a bathroom that never gets used, as an example you can have recessed storage under your bath built in to store rolled up towels or toiletries. Slim cabinets hung on walls will create extra space, as bathroom storage does not need to be very deep to hold all the essentials. Make sure to utilise that space under the sink by installing a basin that has built in drawers or cupboards.
Using floating sinks, toilets and cabinets will add a sense of space in your bathroom. If you can clearly see underneath the fittings a sense of airiness will increase dramatically. If you don’t have room for a bath, a corner shower does not take up much room and a frameless design will blend into the walls creating a sense of even more space.
