Use the wall space
Don’t let anyone tell you what your preferred choice of color scheme should be when the bathroom is concerned. Regardless of its size, even the bathroom needs to reflect your personality in order for you to feel pleasant. But, more importantly, walls are great storage solution for smaller bathrooms.
By putting up some shelves, not only will you get the necessary room for storing, but you’ll add texture to the otherwise plain bathroom. Moreover, you can use shelves to complete your desired color scheme. If you want to add a more personal touch, make sure to jazz up the boxes, jars and other containers that hold your bathroom essentials on these shelves.
Look under the sink
If you don’t have a built-in cabinet with your bathroom sink, you should definitely try to make the most out of this empty space yourself. Basically, you can use store-bought storage racks that fit into this space, or play with some fun DIY and repurposing options. Old trunks and suitcases can be upcycled into creative holders for beauty products.
Design and creative ideas are not the only factors when it comes to a stylish and functional small bathroom. It’s essential to go through everything you keep in your bathroom and throw away anything that’s not necessary. This means that you have to be really strict in the process.
Stick to your Holy Grail bathroom products and get rid of all other bits and pieces that you use rarely or not at all. If packaging is the problem, replace it with something cuter, sleeker and more aesthetically pleasing that matches your taste. Then you can carefully arrange your medicine cabinet. Make sure to put only those products that you use most often on display. On the other hand, make sure to use the tub area for showering products. If there’s not enough room, use a cool-looking basket or similar to store everything in the corner, or hang it on the wall. You can even hang it from your ceiling.
Brighter and visually bigger
In order to make small bathroom space brighter and visually bigger, utilize the light source to the fullest. Keep your window clean and avoid using curtains. If you absolutely want curtains, keep them light in shade and material. Your artificial light shouldn’t be blindingly bright or overly white, but make sure that it’s strong enough for your needs without eye-straining. If changing the lighting solution is not an option, introduce more brightness with lit-up mirrors such as Lumia mirror series by ACS Bathrooms. A nice ring light mirror will make your bathroom appear more spacious thanks to reflection and additional brightness.
If there’s any room for an extra accessory or two once you’re done with the basic style, layout and storage solutions for your small bathroom, by all means, add them to the overall theme. It can be a plant, a framed photo or a candle set. Even toilet covers and floor mats can style up the bathroom interior. Remember, if you give up without trying you will never know just how much creativity you have within you or the number of ways you can apply it to your small rooms.
