Bathrooms often don’t get as much space or attention as other parts of a house, especially the bedrooms and living rooms. However, they don’t necessarily have to be huge in order to be appealing and there are several tips and design ideas for small bathrooms which can really help you make the most of the space you have.
In this post we are going to be looking at 10 different small bathroom design ideas and discuss tips related to each design so you can then implement them in your own home.
The design below is the perfect example of a small bathroom done right. The bright colored wall at the back provides some contrast and keeps things from getting too dull. Similarly, the bathtub is small and connected to the wall while the wash basin is connected horizontally to clear some space underneath.
This here is another example of a small bathroom design which makes the most of the space available. While the wash basin compartments underneath make up for the lack of any wardrobe, the real trick here is the use of a large mirror, which creates the illusion of space due to its reflection.
This bathroom design is all about keeping the walls clear and working on a sterile, minimalistic look. The shelves built into the wall are spacious but uncluttered and the toilet seat and bathtub are in line with the overall flat design. While everything, including the walls is white, the flooring is in contrast to that, making for an interesting overall appearance.
This bathroom is smaller than most but still manages to look fine due to a few design tricks. Firstly there are no shelves, but you can see that the wall section behind the toilet seat has space for small items. Similarly, the bathtub is accompanied by a very small closet but it has clear glass doors, which prevent it from cramping things up in terms of appearance.
A small plant can really turn around the overall look of your bathroom by providing a point of distraction. Even though the bathroom shown here is small, it is designed with a monotone color scheme with just a splash of fresh green which prevents it from looking too dull.
You can also try a bright color scheme for your small bathroom design like the one shown below. The teal is nicely complementing the white and makes for a vibrant contrast and a cheerful overall look. Once again you can see that the use of a small plant is adding more personality to the design.
This is quite a sterile looking small bathroom design but the major takeaway from this is the efficient use of empty space. Clear glass panes are used to create shelves which hold essential items and they’ve also managed to fit in a washing machine.
This small bathroom uses the corners it has to set up a wash basin with compartments underneath and enough space for a bin or other items to go under it. Similarly, the walls for the shower space are in a contrasting color, making the whole bathroom seem bigger than it is.
This bathroom is designed with everything kept low profile to create the illusion of space. The fixtures here are also more curved and smooth, instead of having a blocky design, which can make a space appear cluttered. The use of a large mirror in the centre also helps.
This small bathroom makes use of a combination of bright colors to distract from the lack of space available. The large mirror once again comes to the rescue and the wash basin has room under it to stash away baskets or other items. The rug and the flowers also give more personality to the bathroom, and despite being rather small, it is welcoming to look at.
