Small Space, No Problem: Making the Most of a Cramped Bathroom

BathroomNext to walk-in closets, bathrooms are the smallest rooms in the house used by the family. Given that, you have to make sure that the room’s configurations are in line with its size.

If you want to make the most of your bathroom or convert it into a mini-spa, expect that there will be a lot of work to do. You will also have to let go of some things. Below is a rundown of things that you need to keep in mind to maximise every square centimetre of your bathroom:

Use the Illusion of Height

Make the space appear bigger by using more vertical lines. These lines can draw eyes upwards, leading an observer to believe that the ceiling is much higher than it actually is. You can do the trick by putting tiles up to the ceilings. If you are using paint, vertical stripes and similar patters should do. Use a mirror to complete the illusion.

Ditch the Shower Door

If your bathroom space is just enough to fit a toilet and a tub, do not use a shower door. You can replace it with a curtain. If you want a more sophisticated divider, a frosted glass panel will do. These dividers will not only keep water from reaching the toilet; it will also allow for enough space to move around.

Use a Narrow Sink and Transfer the Storage Space

Ditch big circular and geometric sinks, and install a trough-like sink instead. It will not only help you save up space. It will also make your bathroom look minimalistic, modern and stylish.  If there is not enough space for a vanity or bathroom cabinets, rectify the problem by transferring the storage space above your head. Floating vanities and storage spaces will help free up floor space.
