Below, we share with you some small bathroom renovation ideas we hope will help inspire your project.
Adding storage is by far one of the easiest ways to make a small bathroom a lot more spacious. This keeps a lot of things out of sight that might make the bathroom look cramped, like your dirty laundry, towels, makeup, shaving gear, toothbrushes, hair dryer and all those other bathroom accessories you have collected over time.
Adding storage is not only simple to do, but it can also be added seamlessly into your small bathroom renovation through smart design. Our top tip is eye-level storage, which is usually hidden behind the mirror above your vanity or cupboards and drawers built into your vanity. This really helps maximise your space without the addition of extra items, however it’s important to hold back in adding more storage than needed as this will cramp your space.
Next, we move to a staple in space-starved rooms: a light and bright colour palette. This tip might not come as a surprise, but it’s effective and often doesn’t go out of style. Whether it’s pure white, beige, or grey, light colours are your best friend when designing a small bathroom. Consider these colours when making your selections for tiles, vanity and paint. Bright and light colours tend to reflect light rather than absorb it, giving the added feeling of space to any room.
Having feature tiles on a wall in a small bathroom is another proven technique to make it look and feel roomier as it helps break the monotony of the overall look of the room. However, try to keep your choice of tiles as simple as possible, otherwise, it would look busy and overwhelming—quite the opposite of what you were trying to achieve. Consider using a textured tile in the same colour as the rest of the room as the feature wall.
Separating the shower from the rest of the bathroom can be as easy as putting up a shower curtain. The downside to this, though, is that it makes the bathroom look cramped. So, instead of a shower curtain, install glass doors to make it feel more expansive.
