07 Jun Decorating Tips For Small Bathrooms

Bathrooms are the most intimate and private areas of our homes, and as such, they need to serve as a harmonious retreat. Bathroom is a place where we start and finish the day and its design should provide a pleasant and a stress-free setting.

Quality over Quantity
Even If your bathroom lacks in square meters, it still can become a balanced and a stylish retreat. Small bathrooms are challenging as we need to be more creative and apply some smart solutions to get the best result. By bringing to consciousness your daily routines, habits, and needs, you will make a clearer picture of how to design your bathroom. Aim to create a design based more on your lifestyle and less by employing popular trends. Decide to give way to quality over quantity; Instead of cramping small bath tub and even a smaller shower tub, opt for the one that you actually use and make it distinguished.

Use verticals
Look up for unused space on the walls that can be turned into valuable storage. Be creative in disguising cabinets and creating functional and unexpected solutions. The more stuff you move off of the floor and place elsewhere the less cramped the space will look.

Lighting
Lighting is crucial in achieving a feeling of space and comfort. A good combination of daylight and artificial lighting is an ideal situation. However, if the bathroom is deprived of daylight, compensate it with a proper amount of artificial lighting. A combination of ambient, accent, and task lights is vital for healthy functioning, especially within small space.

Colors
Lighter hues and reflective finishes are the choices you can’t go wrong with when it comes to small bathrooms. Reflective surfaces will bounce the light around the room and create an illusion of space.
Monochromatic schemes create a continuous flow, making the room look wider and larger. Matching floors and walls keep the continuity and enhance a sense of spaciousness.
Mirrors
Speaking of reflective surfaces, mirrors are highly important decorative and functional elements, especially in small bathrooms.

By reflecting light, mirror enhances the space, makes a bathroom’s focal point and naturally draws the attention of other less attractive details. For this reason, a mirror should be big enough, distinct, while the shelves and surfaces around it should be eye-catching and nicely curated.

Keep it Clutter Free
Clutter makes the space cramped and closed in. Open up your bathroom by utilising multifunctional and space-saving features to eliminate visual clutter. Besides, decluttering has therapeutic benefits on us; it reduces stress, which can positively reflect on your mornings and evenings.
