Designing large, open spaces is no rocket science. In the age of Pinterest and YouTube tutorials, it’s relatively simple and straightforward. However, designing for small spaces like bathrooms is the real challenge.
Bathrooms are typically one of the most used spaces in the house. This essentially means, no matter how small, you need to make it functional. You can’t give up on the sink or the toilet, and you need some shower space as well. The challenge is to fit it all without making it looked crammed.
Here’s what you can try.
Choose A Light Color Palette
As a general rule of thumb, you should always go with lighter colors and simple patterns for small spaces. This helps make the room feel more open and less busy. A simple wooden floor with pastels all around is a great way to make it aesthetic without making it look too crammed.
Pro Tip: Keep the ceiling the same shade as the walls; this visually expands space and makes it all look cleaner.
Mirrors for Illusion
Mirrors can reflect and create the illusion of space when used correctly. In smaller bathrooms, you can go big with mirrors. Choose one wall and cover it entirely with a mirror. You can also place the vanity in this space.
Reconsider the Shower Curtains
Having shower curtains can make the space look flustered for no reason. Instead, you could have a clear glass shower door installed—it may make space look more open. Alternatively, you could simply eliminate the barriers and go for an open shower space.
Avoid Protruding Cabinets and Shelves
When you already have less space, to begin with, you don’t want to be bumping into cabinets and shelves all the time. However, you do need some sort of storage space. In which case, it’s best to create cabinets built into the walls. You can also create a shampoo niche in the shower space for extra shelf space.
Opt for A Sleek Floating Vanity
Vanities can provide some much-needed extra storage space, but they also take up quite a bit of the limited floor space. To tackle this challenge, you can simply go for a floating vanity instead. It will still provide more or less the same capacity of storage but would free up some floor space.
