It is safe to say that the bathroom is the most utilitarian space in any household. It is also one of the few rooms where you get to spend a bit of “me” time on a regular basis – whether you are a stay-at-home mom under your toddler’s constant watch or an entrepreneur working round the clock. However, with the evolution of vertical homes, a spacious bathroom is more of a luxury than a necessity. Read on for a few sublime small bathroom designs to transform it into a wellness zone:
Cut down on clutter
While looking for techniques to make your small bathroom appear bigger, the first thing you have to work on is cutting down on clutter. Give the place a quick scan and look for small accessories that can be thrown away or stored in a better way. For example, use just one statement piece of decor instead of multiple small ones. Also, make sure that the objects not used on a daily basis are stored out of sight. This will open up a lot of space and give your bathroom a sleek and clean look.
Install a table top basin
A table top basin provides the dual advantage of creating more space and providing ample storage – something a regular basin with a pedestal will not offer. Furthermore, the storage cabinets at the bottom of the sink can be used to hide your toiletries, scrubs and towels. This will not only make your small bathroom appear bigger but also make it look sophisticated and sleek. The Aria table top basin from Jaquar strikes the perfect balance between luxury and usability.
Fix a corner shower enclosure
Installing a corner shower enclosure to separate the bath from the toilet provides the twin benefit of functionality and aesthetics. The enclosure will help keep splashes at bay and ensure the toilet area is clean and dry. The Enna framed shower enclosure from Jaquar is a perfect fit for small bathrooms since it forms a tight seal around the shower, trapping in heat and steam for a therapeutic experience.
Opt for floating vanity mirrors
What best way to create space than by wall mounting your vanity mirror above your sink? Mirrors are generally known to create the illusion of space and height. They reflect light and brighten the room. Additionally, you can choose from opulent frames and gorgeous shapes to complement your bathroom decor and make a style statement. It is also a good idea to install a large mirror that takes up more space on the wall to deviate attention from your small bathroom.
Hide the towel bar
The towel bar is one of the main functional elements in a bathroom. But in the case of small bathroom spaces, they tend to jut out, taking up essential walking space. Tackle this issue with hooks and knobs that can be fixed behind the door instead. Not only will this help clear out a lot of space in the bathroom, but it will also help in keeping your towels dry – which is always a huge benefit! Play around with hooks and knobs in trendy colours and designs to add a sense of class and style.
Choose bright lighting
There is no doubt that good lighting works wonders when it comes to making a space looking bigger and brighter – and your small bathroom is no exception to this. Opt for row lighting that lowers the chances of shadowing, making your bathroom appear spacious. Apart from the illusion of space, good lighting also adds in the aspect of functionality since bathrooms are very utilitarian in nature. However, make sure you opt for white light that brightens up the space rather than yellow lighting solutions that offer a dim effect.
Go all white
The easiest way to give your bathroom a spacious look is by using a lot of white. White-on-white might not sound very interesting but when it comes to increasing the sense of space there is no better colour to do the job. This noncolor-colour recedes naturally, giving your bathroom a luxurious look. One of the biggest advantages of using white is that it reflects light instead of absorbing it. Opt for all-white bathroom fixtures over a white background for a polished and refined appearance.
Wall mount your WC
Give your small bathroom a sleek look by wall mounting your water closet. You can opt for a flush valve which eliminates the need of a cistern, further cutting down on the clutter and opening up some space. On the other hand, you can also consider concealing your cistern behind the wall to enhance the look of your small bathroom with better space utilization. The continental series wall hung WC from Jaquar is your best bet when it comes to making your small bathroom look bigger. It comes with a soft close seat cover that adds to your luxury quotient.
