The number of people who can afford a big-size houses and apartments is very small. The rest of us live in a limited space, and try to make the best out of what we have got. In the text you will read about some tips and tricks on how to work well with the tiny bathroom, keeping it at the same time stylish and practical.
First thing first, get rid of the unnecessary products. This especially refers to women, who tend to stack up to dozens of different shampoos, face cremes, body lotions, while actually using only 3 or 4 products at a time. What is left of them, you can put on your window. Also, never leave stuff just laying around, like a brush, a razor or a hair dryer. Keeping your bathroom neat and tidy does not only affect what others may think of you, but will also make more room.
Using white as the color of your bathroom will visually make it bigger. Choosing large and natural stone on wall and floor tiles not only creates an illusion of a larger space, but is also more elegant. Although a bit hard to maintain clean, clear glass shower screens open up the space, unlike some other like frosted glass or shower curtains with different patterns and designs.
Some might find white boring and too simple and choose to use some color for their bathroom. Not a bad idea, just remember to go easy on them. Darker shades will make the room look smaller, and people might feel claustrophobic, especially if there are no windows or if they are small. What might be good is to paint the bathroom in some neutral, light color, and then use towels, carpet and drapes to brighten up the space. If you find a room for it, you could even put scented candles and flowers.
There are a lot of little things that you need to keep in the bathroom, and they might clutter up the space if you have a small bathroom, so you need a lot of storage space. The trick is to keep everything off the floor – raise your bathroom furniture. Use wall shelves and cupboards, rather than small cabinets that are placed on the ground. You can also put some hooks on the bathroom door to hang your towels and sometimes even clothes.
When you have a small bathroom, you need to be more creative when designing it. One of the things you can use are wall-mounted toilets. Many people do not prefer them as their construction is known to be very weak, but if you find a good plumber to install it properly, it will be as safe and strong as the average toilet. Another thing is a corner-toilet tank in a shape of a triangular prism, that is considered to be not only practical for limited spaces, but also stylish. Finally, curved sinks are the best choice for your humble bathroom, as they do not stick out like the regular ones, and are much smaller.
