Looking for small bathroom ideas? Small bathrooms can be stylish, practical and, with the right expertise, save space.
The large bathroom is a luxury we can only dream of – a free standing bath in the middle of the room, complete with a roaring fire and a luxurious chair on everyone’s list, right? However true, we think a compact bathroom can be just as beautiful!
1. Make use of an awkward corner
If you don’t have enough room to bathe in your bathroom, choose a freestanding bathtub with a shower mixer tap. This is the perfect reason to spend the evening relaxing in a bathtub. If you lack storage, the bathtub will not only look ready for Instagram, but also keeps your bath time inventory in easy reach.
2. Be clever with glass
Shower cubicles with frameless panels look almost non-existent in this bijou bathroom. The bathroom is smaller than standard, but suitable for children. White marble for wall tiles gives a little glamorous little space.
3. Be a shape shifter
These hexagonal tiles add interest without flooding this small room with a pattern. The owner has also used a hexagon on the terrace and kitchen – as a smooth link through the house.
4. Stay inline
The dark green striped wallpaper was stripped of this room and replaced with an intelligent tongue-and-groove panel painted white and repeated on the shower panel for an efficient approach. The old carpet was exchanged for a lino floor that looked industrial, which was more hygienic and pleasing to the eye.
5. Use clever paint effects to create an illusion of height
Paint half the wall to create the illusion of height. By lowering your eyes with a darker color of paint you make a distance from the top of the wall. If the walls are one color, the room will not have the same depth. This smart but simple paint trick is a great way to make a small space appear larger than it really is.
6. Think like an expert
Architecturally and visually, it is best to keep the small bathroom open by not compressing too much stuff into it. Edit your facilities as often as possible, hang your towel on the bar or hook, keep the pattern to a minimum, and in general, keep it simple. The room will feel bigger if you use a sink rather than a large vanity, clear glass doors rather than shower curtains and reflective surfaces such as glazed ceramic tiles on a large scale.
7. Wallpaper a cloakroom
One of the best ways to disguise a small bathroom is to make flowers and attack the wallpaper is ideal for this. If you have a bathtub or shower in the room (instead of being a dressing room), make sure you buy one made specifically for the bathroom, which will cope with humid and warm conditions.
