Not every bathroom in your house can be a sprawling oasis that invokes a peaceful, calming feeling as if you were stepping into your own personal spa. But, there are ways to make your small bathrooms work and and look great. The design experts at Booher Remodeling Company recommend these tips for maximizing space and function in your small bathroom.
1. Get Creative
A few towels and accessories left out in a small bathroom can quickly make the room look cluttered and messy. However, if you get creative with your storage options, you can keep your bathroom looking neat and spacious. Find new space above mirrors, toilets, or a simple medicine cabinet. Add custom drawers to your cabinets for easy access to your products. Also, you can hide away outlets under counters and inside cabinets to free up counter space.
2. Try Floating
Freeing up the floor opens up a bathroom, creating more visual space and room to improvise. Floating vanities look less cluttered and provide more lighting options. Or change out your vanity for a rustic basin sink that is sized to the room. Wall-mounted toilets eliminate the need for a bulky tank and free up much needed square footage.
3. Hide the Door
Avoid the “small bathroom shuffle” of navigating around the open door in your small bathroom by switching to a sliding door. Pocket doors tuck away into the wall, allowing room to shift bathroom fixtures closer to the entrance. Barn doors also free up space while adding a rustic aesthetic.
4. Choose the Right Design
The correct design can make your bathroom seem bigger without adding square footage. By picking a color palette and matching fixtures, you’ll achieve a visual simplicity that’s easy on the eye and removes any clutter. The designers at Booher will work closely with you to create a uniform aesthetic that suits the space.
5. Follow the Light
Proper bathroom lighting works in tandem with design elements to bring elegance and function to even the smallest spaces. A singular overhead light can make a space feel flat and harsh, so consider adding separate, purposeful lights. Task lighting behind mirrors will give you even lighting across your face, and placing lights under a floating vanity provides a soft glow that’s easy on the eyes. Replacing walls and shower enclosures with glass will also allow light to pass through while visually opening up the space.
