A bathroom is something hard to design especially when you are starting from scratch. Everyone would like to own a mini spa at home, but to own one there are many details you would have to take care of. Where will the sink and tub go? How big should my mirror be? What color tiles should I use for my floor and walls? Will I have space for a cabinet and laundry basket? How can I accessorize my bathroom to make it a trendier one? If you think it is a hard job to get your bathroom designed, then let me tell you that doing it for a small sized bathroom means double the trouble! The ideal way to get things done perfectly from the first time is to get a specialist interior designer to do it for you. However, if you want to cut down on the costs then the following tips and tricks will definitely come in handy.
• Choosing your colors
The primary challenge in designing a small bathroom is that you want it to feel more spacious. Those who own small bathrooms cannot afford to use dark colored tiles, as it will make the place look even smaller. You want to go for more neutral, light colors like baby pink, light green, beige, sky blue… If you want to add some color to the picture, you can use colors like navy blue, brown, red, or golden to accessorize and limit their use to frames around the mirrors or a belt a few inches from the floor. If your bathroom is not too small, you might afford to have a dark colored floor but keep the walls always with a neutral color as the dominant one.
Everyone knows that mirrors add space. However, in a tiny bathroom avoid installing an oversized mirror, as it will look totally off. You want one that fits nicely with your sink size. Your mirror should not be wider than your sink’s width.
• Install only what you will use
While it is okay to have unused space in a large bathroom (as long as things still remain cozy), having a crowded over furnished tiny bathroom is unacceptable. It will make your CR look as ridiculous as a two-year-old girl wearing every piece of jewelry her mom owns. We want the place to look as spacious as possible. Keep your weighing scale, hairdryer, extra towels, outside of the bathroom. If you do not have children, you do not need a stool. If you do not normally take baths then install a walk in shower, it occupies less space!
• Accessorize but keep it simple
You do not need to place many accessories to keep your bathroom updated. A small bright flower can add liveliness to the place without overcrowding it. You can place small pictures on the walls but do not overdo it.
You need to keep the place well lit. Beside the bathroom lightening, you need to have extra lightening near the mirror.
