Small Bathroom Decor
With the modern age world of apartments
most of us are stuck with small bathrooms giving us hardly
any scope to experiment or design with a decor style. Working
your way through squeeze bathrooms requires a lot of planning
and a bit of innovation. So here we are with a range of decoration
ideas to make your small bathroom decor practical and attractive
at the same time. We will make sure that every square foot
of the bathroom area is used to its best ability with unique
highlights to add some element to your bathroom.
Placement of Bathroom Fixtures
One of the most important things is the right placement of the bathroom fixtures so that you can make your small bathroom functional. So letís start with the washbasin, place it close to the door followed by the water closet and then finally the shower or bath area. If possible align the water closet in a way that it is not visible when the door is open.
Well the small bathroom decor should be such that it is functional as well. So
having a half wall or pocket door right next to the water
closet makes the small bathroom functional for two people
at the same time. It not only acts as a partition but also
acts as an additional space to keep your toiletries.
Shower stalls are also a great way to save up a lot of space and not to mention they are quite stylish as well. A glass encased shower area is equally interesting, adding to the bathroom decoration. But if youíre one of them who donít seem to find the bath complete without a bathtub then go for smaller sizes as compared to the standard ones. Corner tubs and whirlpools are also a brilliant option. If the space for the bathtub is less than 36 square inches then remember to keep the rim height of the tub high to hold water appropriately.
Add Decorative Skylights
To give your small bathroom decor a more roomier and airy look introduce skylights.
The best way to go about it is to have a long horizontal ventilator
just below the roof. Another great way to add depth to your
small bathroom decoration is to panel one wall with a long
mirror. If the small bathroom is your private one then having
the mirror next to the bath space adds to the charm of the
Bathroom Colors to Define Space
Colors are forever known to change the appearance of any room and this holds good for the bathroom as well. So the most simple tip is the lighter the color the larger the room appears to be. Keep in mind to use the fixtures also in the same color as the floors and walls. Avoid strong or too bright colors if the bathroom is small. But accent colors can be used. Select your accent color from the bathroom fixtures and accessories.
Bathroom Storage Options
To save space go for storage units that are wall mounted rather than fixed to the floor. A great idea is to conceal storage space behind mirrors. The area below the basin can also be used to keep buckets and washing soaps out of sight.
So the next time you are stuck with a Lilliputian space there is no need to feel sad or disappointed. Perk up your imagination and find one of the most attractive and tasteful looking bathrooms right in your homes.
