Hello, Hope you all had a lovely weekend and have recharged your batteries for another week. I was fortunate to get away this weekend to New South Wales’ country side – the Hunter Valley (which by the way is a lovely winery region – so I couldn’t have chosen a better way to celebrate my first weekend off in a month!!). I am full of energy and ready for another week.
So, the challenge of this week…. I am currently working on a bathroom renovation project and as it happens it is a very small space. It occurred to me that in the majority of the occasions we are limited with space in our bathrooms.
Whether you are looking to redecorate your small bathroom or design one from scratch, today’s post will offer some quick tips on how to do so and as a bonus, plenty of photographic inspiration! You probably wonder how can one make a small bathroom functional, without compromising in aesthetics. . After all we do spend a lot of time in the bathroom…So why not make it the place we really want it to be, that feels as part of our home as much as everything else we have. I think many times bathrooms are overlooked and left on the side. So the question is what do you do when you have a limited space but still want to have a stylish/trendy bathroom? Well, the following photos I gathered in the list below guarantee that combining practicability and visual harmony is possible and not so difficult after all. Taking inspiration from the small bathrooms in this post could be the first step in assessing your upcoming project.
You must think of each and every element in your bathroom and how it interacts with the available space. Do any of them occupy a larger surface than necessary? In order to maximise a small washroom, there are a few things you could do. Removing the feeling of clutter can be achieved by replacing a floor standing vanity with a wall hung vanity so it gives you a cleaner look as well as a modern feel without compromising on storage space. If you’d rather a more minimalistic look another option to consider would be a pedestal sink (Philippe Starck has designed for Duravit this clever and pretty Pedestal Vanity with storage – photos below). Choose a cool tall sink that matches the overall style of the interior and enjoy the extra space. Buying a small bathtub is also a great solution, especially when there are so many chic models out there. Large floor tiles, as well as light coloured paint on the walls give the feeling of space, whereas dark hues could inspire crowdedness. With these simple ideas in mind, we invite you to go through the amazing photo collection below and share your own tips and tricks for designing a perfect small bathroom!
Also don’t forget to add a little bit your personal touch with some styling. For this you can just add statement mirrors, floating shelves, ladders for hanging towels, plants, candles, little stools, baskets, and lighting…even a chandelier would look magnificent and add some character to a small bathroom!
