With imagination, ingenuity, and optical effects, a bathroom can be spacious and highly functional. Every centimeter counts. Check out 25 Ideas to Make the Most of a Small Bathroom.
You will be surprised by all the storage that you can include in your bathroom if an expert designs custom furniture for you. Change your washbasin with afoot for a freestanding one on a countertop and take advantage of all the space under it with shelves and drawers.
Avoid placing sharp edges. A curved countertop, like the one in the image, will allow you to move more comfortably and safely.
A shelf-like those usually used to place pictures are perfect to have a support surface in a narrow bathroom without losing space.
If you can opt for a sliding door. That half a square meter that you earn can be a before and after in a small bathroom.
MUCH TO HIDE
What looks like a simple mirror can hold two large cupboards inside.
Size matters: a small sink will do the same as a large one and will leave more free space.
PLAY THE DISTRACTION
Is your bedroom bathroom somewhat claustrophobic? Replace the partition with glass and you will visually expand the space. If you are modest, you can always put a blind for when you need more privacy.
Study well the plans for your bathroom. Sometimes, there are covered hollow spaces that you can rescue and use to place shelves or cabinets.
This type of toilet is being used more and more and it is very common to continue the partition to the ceiling in order to fully integrate it, thereby losing space. Ask for it to only be raised halfway up and place a storage solution on it.
CORNER MADE THE MOST OF
Another example of how to get the most out of an irregular plant. In this bathroom, a low cabinet and some shelves were placed in the hole left by a beam, managing to install a mini-toilet in a wasted corner.
We already know that a mirror is the best way to visually expand a space. Raise this resource to its maximum power by covering an entire wall.
And for an extra touch, superimpose a curved mirror on a mirrored wall. A perfect result.
LOOP THE LOOP
And if instead of mirrors, you use cabinets with mirrored doors, you will achieve it all: storage and visual amplitude.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF FLAWS
To a reduced space, many times a window is added whose situation makes the distribution of the bathroom difficult. Think differently and make this peculiarity a virtue. In this bathroom, a metal structure was placed with a mirror that provides natural light while you look at yourself in it.
In this other bathroom, they did the same but placing the mirror directly over the window.
2 IN 1
When you go to choose the pieces, look for those that do double duty, like this shelf with towel hooks.
Some plastic containers with suction cups are perfect for a small bathroom. They will give you a lot of flexibility when composing a storage solution and you will occupy vertical space (the best idea when horizontal is scarce).
The above idea is also very useful for the inside of the cabinet doors.
Have you thought about occupying the space above your toilet? This type of wardrobe is perfect for it.
EVERY CENTIMETER COUNTS
Even the space surrounding the bathtub. Think of the millimeter in your bathroom.
BEHIND THE DOOR
A towel rack with hooks to place behind the door will solve the storage of bathroom textiles.
TO THE CORNER!
Why waste the shower space? With this corner shelf, you can store many beauty products (those resistant to water, of course).
A hook rack can become your best ally every morning. From it you can hang baskets with the products you use daily and put them back in a drawer when finished. Functionality can!
LET THE LIGHT PASS
Natural light is miraculous in making a small space appear spacious. If your bathroom has a window, don’t put up barriers so that the sun’s rays reach every corner. For example, go for a see-through screen over a blackout shower curtain.
