Our best tips for renovating a small bathroom
Focus On Functionality
When trying to determine what you want out of your small space, it’s best to think about what you need it for. Obviously you need it to shower in, but do you also need it to be a place where you can relax? Or is your bathroom also going to be your laundry and need to feature a multifunctional design? Is the bathroom just for one or are you sharing the space with others?
Smaller spaces must really place a large focus on the layout and what to include within the bathroom. For example by including wall-mounted basins, you are reducing the amount of space that is taken up within the bathroom. Using clear glass throughout the bathroom also gives the illusion of more space, increasing the general functionality of your bathroom. Finally our top tip for bathroom functionality…what way does your door swing? Is it inwards and taking up space? The simple fix is to change the way it swings or even better, turn it into a sliding door and maximise space.
Smart storage options
Storage in bathrooms is often a major concern. When it comes to bathroom storage it’s important to think about what you normally keep in your bathroom. Ideas that we really like in order to save space include built in shelving, which can be installed under a mounted basin. Another really on trend storage saver is using recessed shelving. This can be used in various walls throughout your bathroom to take up less space and is a great away to display things. By utilising smart storage you can also greatly reduce the amount of clutter within your bathroom.
Less is more
This really is one of the most perfect sayings when it comes to bathroom renovation. By keeping things to a minimum and only keeping the essentials you will be saving your bathroom so much space. This not only includes to physical items you bring into your bathroom, but also design elements. For example, you may want to include a shower/bath combination, but that extra space the bath takes up could’ve been free floor space or storage to add to your bathroom. So keep a realistic approach to what you’ll actually be using!
Keep things light
Our final tip for renovating a small bathroom, keep things light and bright. By using light colours and making use of natural light you will make the small space appear bigger. If you feel like your bathroom is missing some colour, try splashes of feature colours through smaller details, like tiles or cabinets.
