Small bathrooms can be brought in so many creative directions! Here are a few ideas:
Break the Rules
For smaller powder rooms it is completely okay to go all out and break all the rules – such as using material that might look over the top. Dark colors or bold patterns such as this graphic lattice wallpaper will add great dimension and a bit of fun to the small space!
One advantage to a small bathroom – smaller prices. Since space is small you can get away with using higher priced materials. Such as seen below, a hand-carved marble sink with a modern metallic damask wall covering, an example of going big and not needing to empty the wallet!
Design Built-In Storage
Plan ahead ways to design storage into the bathroom to maximize space in the small area. Such as custom floor-to-ceiling built-in shelves.
Up the Color
Sometimes bold color is all you need to make a big statement. The bathroom below has no natural light, therefore the bold green gives it a fresh personality. The green intensity gets a counterbalance from the ultra-white floor.
Use Glass as an Illusion
A glass shower gives the illusion of space in a small bathroom by allowing you to see from one end of the room to the other.
Select compact, sculptural fixtures to maximize floor space.
Make Organizing Fun
Add an unexpected splash of color to the inside of your vanity using paint or just a brightly colored adhesive paper. This will make stashing stuff a little more fun!
Stores makeup, prescription items, or any personal grooming tools out of sight. Instead, style the counter top with fresh flowers and sweet-smelling lotion or hand soap.
Add Color with Accessories
Even a minimal splash of color in small spaces adds a big dose of fun. Use a soft neutral or white color palette for the walls and fixtures to maximize light then add just the right amount of color with a shower curtain, towels, or accessories.
Style the Underfoot
Lack of square footage is a good thing when it comes to purchasing new flooring! Don’t be afraid to pick a more pricey style, such as this black, gray and white marble hexagonal tile.
Try Open Shelving
Floating shelves provide storage space for style-boosting accessories and bath necessities, while also making the room appear bigger.
