For many of us, the bathroom is the most important part of any home. Not only does it serve important functions that require a certain degree of adequacy to be fulfilled, but form and appearance also play a significant role in it as well. With that being said, the task of boosting both the form and function for a smaller bathroom can prove to be a little more challenging because of the limited amount of space that you’ll have to undoubtedly work with. However, it’s by no means impossible and even an area with small dimensions can boast comfort and luxury.
Space is crucial for small bathrooms and one way of increasing it is by determining exactly what you need from the vanity area. If you are the type of person who requires a lot of storage for the essentials like toiletries then consider using a small vanity, which includes cabinet doors that are under the counter. The addition of extra shelves and drawers within it can also go a long way to keeping things nice and tidy.
On the other hand, if you don’t have too many accessories and items, a pedestal or wall-mounted sink can further maximise the space that you have available in the bathroom.
We all want as much room as we can muster around the area of the toilet but unfortunately it isn’t always realistic or viable in a dimensionally challenged bathroom. However, one idea for potentially increasing space would be to swap out the toilet for a model in a smaller size. They aren’t exactly cheap, but they won’t require a small fortune either, so it’s an option worth taking. You can also clear up a lot of other items on the floor like trash bins and laundry containers too.
Generally, smaller bathrooms will often only have either a shower or a bath, but not both, for obvious reasons. One of the most popular approaches to create space or at the very least the illusion of it, is with the addition of glass shower enclosures. Glass normally has the capacity to play tricks on our perception and vision, and in this case it does it by making everything look bigger. This can be further supplemented by allowing natural light to enter the area. If this isn’t a possibility, there are bulbs that can be utilised to mimic the effect.
Limited space doesn’t necessarily mean that it is an impossible task to create your ideal bathroom. With a few creative ideas and some effort, nothing can’t be accomplished. In fact, you’re more likely to benefit from it too. The less space, the less you have to work with. With that in mind, expenditure can easily be kept down.
