3 Design Tips for Small Bathrooms

3 Design Tips for Small Bathrooms

After a tiring day at work, the best thing you can do for yourself is to slide into the bathtub and immerse your body in warm water. To get the utmost pleasure out of your late-night bath, though, it’s necessary that the water is fresh, the shower supplies smell great, and that the bathroom makes you feel relaxed.

The aesthetics of your bathroom have a direct effect on how enjoyable or comfortable your bathing experience will be. If it smells bad, is congested, has blindingly bright lights, or the mirrors are broken, there’s no point at all!

Frustrated by a small bathroom space? Here are some tips to help you maximize the design:

Use a sliding door!

Separating the shower area from the rest of the bathroom gives you a sense of privacy, but you need to be careful with your choice of door if your bathroom is on the smaller side.

If it’s a door you can pull open with a handle, you’ll only be restricting the available bathroom space. Another disadvantage of conventional doors is that they bump into walls and cabinets in small bathrooms, making things look more crowded than they are.

In such cases, a sliding door is a better choice since it takes up no extra space. You can also choose from a wide range of designs and tinted shades to match the rest of the bathroom.

Make use of extra space

You don’t have to install towel hangers on the walls if the door can serve that purpose. By mounting them behind the door, you’ll be freeing up space inside the bathroom, making it look wider.

Other than that, you can install a counter right over the toilet instead of using up more space. In fact, you can even skip the counter completely and put in shelves. This way, you’ll be making use of the walls.

Mirrors are the way to go!

Mirrors have the distinct ability to make a narrow space look wide and add a feeling of ‘depth’. For years, mirrors have been used as a way to add the illusion of space. However, you need to be careful with its placement. Don’t put them where you can directly see yourself while taking a shower. Instead, put them up on the wall adjacent to the counter or the basin.
