12 Clever Ways to Decorate Your Small Bathroom Like a Pro January 13 2017, 0 Comments
Great things come in small packages, even in bathrooms. With the right design choices, you can create an illusion of a bigger space and upgrade its look to a whole new level. Small bathrooms are perfect for design experimentation, and you might be surprised at the many creative possibilities you can improve yours with!
We’ve gathered more than 10 brilliant décor ideas; find your favourites, and start working on your new remodel project!
Round and round. Instead of opting for a regular square sink, choose a smaller, softer shape; like an oval. It gives your counter more space and adds a feminine character to your small bath.
Patterned walls. Create an opulent atmosphere in your powder room by installing wallpapers. The smaller space gives you the leeway to indulge in several textures and illusions; choose one that mixes well with the design of the room.
Industrial indications. Instead of choosing a regular counter, why not try a washstand? The plumbing-connected bars give off a strong industrial flair, and works nicely as a way to hang towels too!
Fabled furniture. Who says you can't put a table or a chair in your small bathroom? Instead of the bulky pouf or an obstructive centrepiece, find a small table with a leggy base that doesn't close off the space; that way, you can place books or a vase on the bottom shelf, giving you much more room for decor.
Pale palettes. For powder rooms and baths with less natural light, choosing a neutral tone will help brighten up the scene. The solid colours produce a visually spacious atmosphere. Decorate it with a small gallery in the corner to add colour to the area.
Mirror, mirror on the wall. If you want an added illusion of space, installing a mirror will definitely help. They also invite the light in, reflecting any illumination from the source, giving your bath a sense of radiance. Choose mirrors with artistic frames; metallic colours in the same hue as your other hardware will create a glamorous look in your bath.
Light it up. Instead of a hanging pendant, choose a sconce, or two. Globe sconces adds a classic touch to any bathroom, while cage lights present a unique, masculine flair to the setting.
Softer corners. When selecting a vanity, you may want to opt for something with a rounded edge. Not only does it give off an unusual charm in your small bath, but it also helps avoid bumping into the edge when you're in a rush.
Hidden storage. Lack of space means greater efficiency. When choosing fixtures, pick the ones that doubles up as storage, rather than a single-function furniture.
Rely on the ledge. Maybe your bathroom has no space to cater a cabinet. Don't worry; you can place your daily essentials on a handy DIY shelf. Add a ledge right above the sink, near the mirror. It doesn't take up floor space, and adds a practical means of decorating your vanity. Arrange the bottles with perfumed candles for a fashionable twist.
Tell-tale tiles. Have fun choosing accent tiles! If you have chosen a neutral colour motif with your bath, it's time to go all out with a splash of strong tone with your floor and wall. Nature-inspired graphics add a cheerful element. On the other hand, geometric shapes create a contemporary twist to your powder room.
Marbled marble. No bath is too small for a touch of glamour. A marble sink adds a well-defined, chic flavour in the area. Pair it with a hanging pendant bulb for better focus, as well as a nice touch of whimsy.
