Small Bathroom Designs - 9 Tips You Can Use

It's the truth. Small bathroom designs are the focus of current interior design. Small spaces aren't a homeowners nightmare anymore; now they can be places for imaginative design that add to the beauty of the home.

Many people go all out to make their home a bonafide artistic creation. Interior design for small bathroom spaces is no longer the drag it once was. Nowadays, it's turned around 180 degrees. Despite having many time-tested methods available in design books, many individuals will have a strong desire to liberate themselves from these rules when trying to manage claustrophobic eyesores.

Secrets Finally Revealed: There may seem to be a real lack of effective and fresh ideas for transforming your small space, but here we will unlock some secrets of design. Lay aside what you think you know and let your imagination run wild.

Here are some ideas:
  1. If you love your baths, install a small, intimate, deep bath tub in an unobtrusive place.
  2. A see-through shower curtain against an opaque shower wall will show off your bathroom's style, but will not leave much to the imagination.
  3. Don't discount using wall mounted cabinets or recessed shelves. Use as much of the wall space as you can.
  4. Your visitors will appreciate the artful use of pedestal or wall mounted sinks.
  5. Save space by installing sliding or hinged doors.
  6. Windows placed close to the ceiling leaves plenty of wall space for the installation of cabinets and shelves.
  7. You don't have to be a magician to take advantage of illusion. Allow light to stream in through windows and skylights, and see what an enormous effect it has. Creative lighting and the use of mirrors can transform a small, dingy space into a welcoming, airy space.
  8. Vertical lines may add the illusion of height to a small space, but combining identical tiles on both walls and floors will really make a small room pop.
  9. Using light colors - pastels or neutrals - can really jazz up your space.
