10 Tips to Make a Small Bathroom Sizzle
Your kitchen might not be as spacious as you like it to be, but that does not mean it can’t be stylish and contemporary. On the contrary, with some imagination and ingenuity, you can increase your bathroom’s aesthetics to another level.
To that end, here are ten ideas that will add style and personality to your bathroom.
Use every inch of space.
Let’s say you have this tight corner that seems pointless and useless, but it’s there. Why not add a freestanding oval tab featuring a shower mixer tap? Not only will that look amazing on Instagram, but it will create an illusion of a bigger space.
Mount taps to the wall.
Wall-mounted mixer taps look great in small white bathrooms as the pipes are well hidden within the walls. Thanks to that, there is no need for the basin pedestal, which means more freed-up space. You can use the extra space for storing a laundry basket or other bathroom supplies.
Think like a professional interior designer
Professional interior designers always follow a set of rules when it comes to small white bathrooms. First of all, they avoid crowding too many things in it. They stick to the minimalist approach and keep things simple.
For example, they never use a bully vanity and always opt for a pedestal sink. That’s almost by default when it comes to small bathrooms. Then there is the glass door that is always preferred instead of a shower curtain. A glass door opens up the bathroom and gives an illusion of a much bigger space than it is.
Some secrets of the trade are not that difficult to follow and apply when trying to increase the appeal of your tiny bathroom.
Use wall-mounted furniture
The same logic applies as with wall-mounted taps. Wall-mounted furniture has its specific, streamlined appearance that can only increase the appeal of your small bathroom.
The best part is that you can find wall-mounted furniture in all depths, widths, colors, materials, textures, and sizes. Whatever the style or appearance you are aiming for, it won’t be too difficult to find a matching wall-mounted furniture.
Use tiles to play with perception.
The size of your bathroom and what the eye perceives can be somewhat different. You can manipulate perception by tiling both the wall and side of the bath with the same design. In this regard, marble can be particularly effective. This way, it appears like one big sheet as tiles are almost indistinguishable.
Freestanding tall tiered storage
Freestanding pieces are regularly used in small bathrooms. Some of the most popular ones are storage units featuring tiered wire. They have that luxurious appeal, while at the same time, they are quite practical. Plus, you can move them in any corner of the bathroom at any given moment or situation.
Add a feature wallpaper.
Strategically placed wallpaper can be quite eye-catching and will grab the attention of the person using the bathroom. That way, instead of paying attention to the size of the bathroom, he/she will be focused on the interesting print in front of them.
The trick here is not to choose an interesting theme, but to use a material that is not affected by the steam in the bathroom. Regular wallpaper materials are not recommended for bathrooms. Therefore, it is best to talk to a paper specialist before buying and installing wallpaper.
Use built-in recessed shelving.
They are not only great space savers, but they are as visually appealing as they are practical. If possible, build one into a false wall that covers pipework.
Use mirrors to make your bathroom look bigger.
Mirrors can transform any given room and make it feel bigger than it is. That’s because they can reflect light and give the illusion of spaciousness. It is one of those “little dirty tricks” often used by interior designers when they decorate small bathrooms.
Please keep it simple
Last but not least, always choose accessories and furniture featuring clean lines. That way, the bathroom will be clutter-free, and you will create the illusion of space. Stick with natural and soft shades, and you won’t go wrong with that approach.
