It is time for us to state facts simply: some bathrooms in certain homes are just really small. We find that these bathrooms are, therefore, all the more difficult to remodel. All hope is not lost, or so we have found. A remodeling project in small bathrooms can be done just as easily as in larger bathrooms, so long as the right ideas are employed. We present a few ideas of ways to go about updating a small bathroom so that it is both functional and full of as much storage room as possible.
It is the well-known knowledge that mirrors are great at reflecting light, so they can make a small room look bigger. However, we have found that using glass containers and decorations helps to amplify that effect. Glass containers can be used to hold many things, including cotton balls, makeup sponges, toothbrushes, liquid soap, and even Q-tips.
As with any room, color coordination is important. We believe this statement could not be any truer about small bathrooms. Dark colors with pops of color can appear to be sleek and make accessories stand out, making them the focal point of the room instead of the room’s size. At the same time, placing darker accents in a room that has lighter colored walls will make it seem larger, making it feel airy and open. We find that either color scheme works to meet the needs of small bathrooms, but the colors have to be coordinated closely for this to work. All of the colors should tie together instead of working against each other to make one item become a standout eyesore.
Hotels often have smaller bathrooms, and therefore, their design is rather simple. Sometimes, we can borrow ideas from this mindset. In this case, less is more. Neutral colors with white surfaces and silver fixtures are often used. A large mirror is usually in place, which we discussed the benefits of using such a thing previously. At the same time, there are few decorations to clutter up the room’s appearance.
