Your bathroom is where you get ready for the day. It is where you prepare to face the world. When you enter your bathroom, you should enter a comfortable and beautiful space that leaves you feeling relaxed and ready to take on whatever you will encounter when you leave that small little room.
If you have a small space, there are lots of bathroom design tricks you can use to maximize the space.
Use a Corner Sink
In a small bathroom, every little bit of square footage counts, which is why you shouldn't put the sink right in the middle of the bathroom, where it takes up the most space. Instead, move the sink to the corner of the room with a specially designed corner sink. Corner sinks allow you the sink space you need, without taking up so much floor space. You will have more room to move around in your bathroom when you install a corner sink.
Cut Down on Shower Door Space
Having a shower door that swings open can also eat up the square footage in a small bathroom. Change things up with your shower door. Remove your shower door and install a shower curtain instead. Or if you have the space, install a sliding door. Or you can get rid of the shower door altogether and put a half-glass wall near the shower head to reduce the spray and keep the rest of the shower open. That way, you will not have to sacrifice space just to open and close your shower.
Put Your Towel Bar on the Door
You only have so much wall space as well, so make the most of it. Put your towel bar on your shower door or put some hooks for hanging up your towels on the back of the door to the bathroom. That way you don't take up too much space in your bathroom with your towels. Store you extra towels in the linen closet outside your bathroom.
Give Your Ceiling Some Color
Give your ceiling some color and paint it blue. You can even make the ceiling look a little like the sky by adding in some clouds. This color will add dimension to your small bathroom and make the space feel a little taller and more spacious.
Hang the Toilet on the Wall
Your toilet doesn't have to sit on the floor. Get a fancy new style toilet that you hang on the wall. This gets rid of the big water holding tank that comes with a traditional toilet and will allow you to make the most of the space.
Used a Recessed Medicine Cabinet
Put in a recessed medicine cabinet. A recessed medicine cabinet will allow you to enjoy a nice mirror above your sink, while at the same time will also provide you with some storage space.
Use Large Tiles
For the bathroom floor, use large tiles instead of small tiles. Small tiles can actually make your space feel smaller than it really is, whereas large tiles open it up.
When you redesign your small bathroom, think carefully about where everything goes. Use the tops above to maximize your space and get the most out of the room.
