After dealing with the topic of the bathroom tiles , today we will instead see some tips on how to decorate a small bathroom.
When embarking on the renovation of an apartment, the need to have to create a service bathroom often emerges. Whether it is because the family has expanded or because the schedules match in the morning and someone, punctually, stands outside at the door waiting for their turn.
We may be faced with the need to optimise space even in our main bathroom, perhaps because we do not have ample floor space.
Decor a small, narrow bathroom: how to do it
A small bathroom decor, perhaps long and narrow, may prove less simple than expected. It is indeed necessary to make the best use of every small space, taking into account one’s own needs and any limitations imposed by the structure of the bathroom itself.
Not only that, in the case of the second bathroom, the problem of where to locate it also arises. An optimal solution would be a closet that you use very little. It would involve sacrificing your storage, perhaps throwing away superfluous items you have accumulated over the years.
Another interesting solution, would be to design a small bathroom in the room. You will have the privacy you need, plus it is a widely used, easily practiced solution. Call your plumber for advice.
The first action to take is to ask for permits so that you can change the perimeter of your house. That done, an architect or plumber will help you with the difficult task of designing a small bathroom that meets your expectations. The problems you may face are many. But to everything there is a solution. The arrangement of sanitary ware in a small bathroom should be carefully studied especially if the area in question is rectangular.
First of all, equip yourself with a tape measure and a lot of patience.
Bathroom spaces: taking measurements
On a piece of paper, draw the perimeter of your bathroom and mark the measurements of each side. Also take note of any indentations or protrusions and consider any fixed elements in the bathroom, such as sockets, pipes or windows.
Now that we know the measurements of the bathroom, we need to “fit” all the sanitary ware and accessories that are needed.
Do you know, for example, that there are suspended sanitary ware? Indeed it is! Let’s see what the benefits are and why you should include them in your small bathroom. First, you need an airy and bright room: the more floor you can show, the more you will fool the eye. The hygiene factor is also not to be underestimated. Cleaning a small bathroom is generally quick and easy. However, it is important to make sure that all cracks and tight corners where dust and bacteria lurk are easily accessible.
Small bathroom with shower
The classic size of a shower is 80×80. Yet not every venue can afford to accommodate a shower tray of this size. Know that there are plenty of brands that custom design what you need. You can also opt for a 60×70 mini shower. The crystal shower box then will provide you with a wonderful optical effect. In fact, it turns out to be ideal for bathrooms furnished in a modern style, and most importantly, it does not create a visual barrier to block your gaze or that of your guests.
Small bathroom with washing machine
The washing machine is definitely one of those essential appliances for any household. If your small bathroom is also your only bathroom and you do not have a dedicated laundry room, you will necessarily have to carve out a small corner for the washing machine. Fortunately, several models of “slim” washing machines, which are also ideal for narrow bathrooms, can be found on the market today.
Small modern bathroom
Not a big fan of the antique style? Well, the advice I am about to give you is right for you.
Use a sliding door to make your small bathroom, a small modern bathroom. If you opt for a traditional door, it may slam open on this or that sanitary. It would probably be impossible for you to open it wide anyway, giving an idea of unkempt and arranged to the eye. The sliding door gives the idea of something innovative, technological, and most importantly, does not take up valuable space.
Choosing the right bathroom colours
Colors are very important. What might seem like a purely aesthetic choice instead has a decisive functionality. Colors should be strictly light, especially if we are talking about a blind bathroom where no light enters. Go for pastel shades or neutral tones. Be won over by the beauty of simple surfaces without complicated designs. To decorate a small, narrow bathroom where the sun’s rays struggle to make their way through the window, forgo the dark, dreary tones of antique bathrooms.
Sanitary arrangement in a small bathroom
The arrangement of sanitary ware requires precise precautions. Each sanitary needs to be spaced several inches apart. This is both for proper functionality of the bathroom and to provide a way for the person to pass and move around with ease. The same goes for the shower; it must be possible to break into the cabin without bumping and hurting yourself. In addition, there are sanitary fixtures that are smaller in size than standard ones and are not necessarily uncomfortable or uncomfortable. If you are thinking about the sanitary arrangement in a rectangular bathroom then don’t mull it over too much and opt for this solution that will make it easy for you to reach every area of the room.
Small bathroom decor: the accessories to use
Are niches always a disadvantage? Absolutely not. There may be some useful ones where you can stick soaps, shampoos and washing items. You could use a wall to put a functional piece of furniture such as a shoe rack or a wide door to store brushes, makeup or shaving brushes. And why not place a long mirror over the sink? It will give you the idea of extra space and further increase brightness.
As you have seen, it only takes a few steps to have a perfect bathroom even if you have a small size. I can still advise you to pay attention to the tiles and not choose them too small. A bathroom full of leaks will give the eye the idea of clutter and chaos. Also try to pay attention to lighting. No bulky and loud chandeliers. Rather opt for spotlights that give not too blinding and natural light to the room.
For materials, if you have the financial means, I recommend that you do not care too much about immediate savings but buy something that will last. Simply put, do not just look at the present but push your gaze beyond the horizon into the future. I am sure these tips will be of great use to you, please leave us feedback to let us know how your new bathroom is coming along.
