Let’s face it. Not everyone can afford to build big homes with large walk-in closets and ensuite bathrooms. But this does not mean you can’t have a tiny bathroom that’s still awesome and well-equipped!
Moreover, there are many tricks to make sure the tiny bathroom can still pack a lot of things inside without looking too cramped up. Plus, you can actually make space look much bigger.
How? Check out these tips.
Plan the Layout Carefully
Before installing a bathtub or anything inside the bathroom, check out space and see if there really is room for one.
Plus, by planning the layout carefully, you can make a tiny bathroom still have plenty of space inside for you to move around without bumping into the sink and cabinets.
Use Light Colors
Dark colors tend to make you focus on the furnishings and notice everything in the room.
With light colors, you can make the room look much bigger even without moving a thing.
Utilize the Space Above the Door
More often than not, the space above the door is really ignored in most homes.
But in a tiny bathroom where every space is valuable, this spot could actually become storage space for towels, toilet paper, and bottles of shampoo.
Shelves Above the Toilet Bowl
The space above the toilet often features artwork in many bathrooms, but with your tiny bathroom, it is best to convert this into shelves instead.
Utilize Every Available Storage Space
Even if you have a bathtub in place, the tiny bathroom can still have plenty of storage spots by converting the space right beside the tub into stylish cabinets.
Make a Wall Organizer
In tiny bathrooms, the walls are your best options for storage space. Make a wall organizer to reduce clutter on the sink.
Add a Wall Mirror
A floor-length mirror is really the best way to double the space in a tiny bathroom! Of course, this is just an optical illusion but it still looks great, especially if you decorate the space quite nicely.
If that’s not possible, you can install a large mirror on the empty space above the toilet bowl.
Use a Mirror Shelf
If you’re uncomfortable with a huge mirror, a smaller mirror shelf could also do the trick. Plus, this gets an added bonus of having storage space inside.
Transparent Shower Area
Instead of using shower curtains, a glass enclosure would make the shower area look better and bigger.
Use a Corner Sink
A corner sink is often smaller, yet still has everything that a rectangular one can offer.
Freestanding shelves would clutter up space. Instead, use built-in shelves for towels and other bathroom needs.
Organize the Shelves
Of course, built-in shelves will still be useless if you don’t organize the space.
Reduce clutter by using proper storage options to make the space-efficient.
