Health and hygiene of the residents depends on the design and plan maintained in the bathroom. As compared to the other rooms of the house, a bathroom occupies a much lesser space. Thus, a proper positioning of the bathroom accessories is essential to make a small bathroom look more spacious and hygienic.
While large luxurious bathrooms with a large ceiling shower, whirlpool tubs are definitely an awestriking view, but lack of space and budget considerations often make us rethink of the type of decors and accessories we can afford. However, there is no reason to think that small bathrooms cannot be made up to our creative dreams. A proper combination of colours, flooring and appropriately sized and shaped cabinets can make a small bathroom look spacious and luxurious at the same time.
The basic trick to make small bathrooms look more spacious is to use brighter or neutral softer colours to reflect the light across the entire room. However, apart from the conventional light colours, some people can attain a beautiful spacious look in their bathroom with bright bold colour like ocean green and blue hue coloured wall murals, paired with dark wood cabinets and green or blue towels and accessories. To add an oriental touch to the bathroom, addition of golden tiles along the bathroom, with bright red and golden accessories with marble counters and arched ceilings can give a timeless look.
The next thing is to remember is not to take too much space for lighting. Rather than large lighting fixtures or chandeliers that take too much space, recessed lighting is the best option for a small bathroom, as it can be embedded in the ceiling producing a soft glow, giving the illusion of a bigger space than actual.
To reflect light across the bathroom, large flat mirrors should be fitted along the bathroom walls. Although vanity sinks are popular due to the large storage space they offer in the bathroom, but in case the user is going short on space, he can replace it with a pedestal sink or a wall fitted sink. These come in various elegant styles that can easily save space and go with any bathroom design and colour.
To add extra storage space to the bathroom, the vertical space in the wall can be used for recessed cabinetry, along with built in storage units. Having a separate space for a shower as well as bathtub will take up a lot of space inside the bathroom. Hence, a recessed ceiling shower or a walk-in shower with multiple showers can prove to an elegant, space saving yet luxurious option for a small bathroom.
Also, residents can opt for a bath tub combination instead of allotting a separate space for the two. Lastly, instead of having a shower curtain to visually separate the bathroom, a better option is a glass door to separate the shower space from the rest of the bathroom.
Light soft colours with extra storage space, inbuilt cabinets, vanity sinks with cabinet storage system, soft glowing light can make the small bathroom a luxurious haven for feeling fresh at the end of a tiresome day.
