Bathroom Ideas for Small Spaces

Redecorating and remodelling your bathroom is a great way to prepare for upcoming seasons by adding colours to bring the desired effect. Removing old fixtures and furnishings can make room for a complete overhaul of your bathroom, allowing you to make some substantial and effective changes. Some homes however, have very limited space in the bathroom and take a little more thought when planning to redecorate and remodel. So with that in mind, let’s see how we can optimise these rooms and look at some bathroom ideas for small spaces.

Measure Up

When working with limited space, measuring the area of the room and the dimensions you have to work with should certainly be your first move. This can contribute to what furnishings and fixtures you buy when looking at bathroom ideas for small spaces; for example, measuring the area of your walls is important when looking to buy packs of tiles as it gives you a good idea of how many you will need. The same applies when installing shower, sink and toilet fixtures; knowing how much space you have (and how much free space will remain after installation) can be useful when looking for new fixtures, and certainly save a lot of trouble in the long run.

Choose Your Colours Wisely

While considering new bathroom ideas for small spaces, think about how you can enhance the appearance of the room as well as the practicality. By adding lighter colours to the walls, curtains and colour coordinated decoration you can make your bathroom appear more spacious. Let in as much natural light as possible, if you have the budget and time to add a skylight or window then do so. If you are hoping to purchase fixtures (toilets, sinks etc.) that are not in a traditional white colour then be sure to compare your desired paint or wallpaper to your chosen fixtures; if done properly these two can nicely accompany each other.

Use Space Saving Fixtures

Here’s something definitely worth taking into consideration when planning bathroom ideas for small spaces; most of the vital bathroom fixtures available to you can be bought as a corner feature. This is a fantastic way of saving room in your bathroom. Instead of obstructing a door or taking up too much space in the centre of the room they are positioned in the corner of the bathroom to save maximum amounts of space.
