Small bathrooms may seem like a difficult design task to take on; however, these spaces may introduce a clever design challenge to add to your plate. Lack of space does not have to mean lack of style. In fact, small baths and powder rooms are the perfect places to experiment with wallpaper, patterned tile, statement sinks, and unusual light fixtures. Creating a functional and storage-friendly bathroom may be just what your home needs.
Every design element in a small bathroom should have a purpose and be functional in some way or another to create a space-saving sanctuary. Before you dive in, if you are looking for space-saving furniture ideas, take a hint from chic spaces below—all prove that good things really come in small packages.
Add Storage : Instead of stuffing things in large cabinets, showcase your colorful, textured towels in open shelving or metal rack. This will add warmth and playful colors to your space and eliminate unwanted large furniture pieces.
Best use of light : It will always seem larger if it’s lighter and brighter. Be sure to take full advantage of any natural light available in your small bathroom. Make sure any curtains or shades are translucent. Similarly, when choosing a color scheme for the entire space, focus on lighter, livelier hues.
On the ledge : Display bath salts, bubble bath and other bathroom necessities in pretty glassware on a windowsill. Decorative and practical as it will make you bathroom look elegant and you’ll always have what you need within arm’s reach.
Add pops of color : In an all-neutral bathroom, add pops of color with fresh flowers in a simple vase or showcase colorful hand-towels, rugs or robes. It’s an effortless, inexpensive, and easy small bathroom idea to mix up the palette.
Layer Tonal Texture : If you prefer a light and bright bathroom, decorate a small bathroom with texture. The seashell-encrusted mirror or a tile wall add enough texture to keep this small space from feeling too stark.
