The space in your bathroom affects its everyday function. Especially when square footage is limited, small areas pose problems regarding storage, organization, and overall look. Check out these eight tips to help guide choices and investments that will give your compact bathroom a spacious feel without compromising your desired style.
When it comes to making the most of your small bathroom, look for opportunities to make every inch of your space work for you. Look for areas where items can be placed on the walls. Instead of bulky cabinets and drawers, select narrow, easy-to-install vanities and shelves. These types of items normally require no more than a set of screws and a screwdriver.
Add Mirrors For Dimension
Mirrors open up rooms by reflecting light and enhancing colors. While no additional square footage is added, mirrors give the impression of having more space. To amplify this effect, consider hanging multiple mirrors on your bathroom walls. For more inspiration, check out these nine mirror ideas that will add function and flair to your home.
The bathroom is the perfect place to experiment with colors you may have thought were unsuitable for your home. Introduce lively hues like tangerine or sunflower yellow into the room, or play with color schemes that complement each other—powder blue and white, for example. Adding an accent wall will also bring eye-catching depth and variation to your space. Remember, your mirrors will reflect whatever color(s) you choose, so go for shades that illuminate your space.
The saying “good things come in small packages” rings true when it comes to selecting the right vanity for a bathroom with limited space. The key to choosing the perfect vanity relies on two basic principles: design and storage capabilities. If space allows, opt for a corner vanity that has compartments beneath the sink.
If there is no space in the corners of your bathroom, consider a brass console sink or floating vanity. The open area under either option allows you to place stylish baskets for extra storage.
Opt For A Petite Sink
Having a small bathroom does not mean you have to forgo personal style and functionality. Petite sinks can mount flush against the wall or rest atop a vanity in the corner of the room. Depending on build and design, adding a small sink to your bathroom can be an easy and inexpensive alteration.
Wet rooms are an excellent option for homes with limited space. Not only are they modern and easy to clean, but they also consolidate square footage by placing your bathtub in the same area as your shower. Their unique layouts allow homeowners with small bathrooms to indulge in a freestanding tub without feeling cramped. Additionally, wet rooms are a great place to play with cohesion, as demonstrated by this space that is decked out in our Lexia Collection.
Install A Soaking Tub
If a wet room is not possible in your design, but you still want the luxury of a freestanding tub, look into a soaking tub. Japanese soaking tubs are made so you can sit upright instead of horizontally and still enjoy a long, relaxing bath. Their shape, in turn, takes up less square footage than a traditional freestanding tub and allows them to be installed in corners or tighter areas of your space.
When designing a functional small bathroom, choosing products that save square footage is always top of mind. In this pink and green oasis, our Eastpointe Corner Toilet and Olney Console Sink free up precious floor space to allow for a stunning soaking tub—a luxury most homeowners would dream of!
