When you are living in a small space, designing your bathroom becomes a huge challenge because you have to do it in a way that you will be able to make the most of the bathroom, especially when it comes to storage purposes. It even becomes more worrisome if you have a washing machine and dryer and yet you do not have a laundry room or space to conveniently keep these appliances and make use of them. In this case, your bathroom becomes the safest bet. No matter how small your bathroom might be, yours is not a hopeless case because with the right space saving ideas, you will be able to create roomy and functional storage units under and beside most of your bathroom fixtures including sinks, cabinetry and bathtub. Here are some of the creative ideas that will help you save space in your bathroom.
When you have little space to design in, a powder room’s pipe work may have to be on show. Boxing it in, to hide it, can take up valuable floor space. In such situations make a virtue of the necessity and accentuate what you would normally prefer to hide, like down pipes and waste pipes. Select brushed stainless steel faucet fixings and a towel rail that matches your basin’s waste pipe. Why not extend the idea and use metalwork for your basin, too? Chrome works well as an alternative to stainless steel. If your powder room is located under a stairwell it can be even more pushed for space than elsewhere. Don’t be put off a clear design ethos just because the ceiling may slope or because the room has an awkward corner to negotiate. Site the toilet at the place where headroom is most restricted. Keep the color scheme light in tone and hang a large mirror to give the feeling of more space. Another good tip it to install a hand wash basin that sits in a corner, so guests don’t have to squeeze past it.
You can also use wood for the vanity and accessorize it with a beautiful sink also made from natural materials. An interesting and beautiful option would be stone. A stone sink placed on top of a wooden vanity would look very chic but, at the same time, it would help create a natural and simple decor.
A downstairs powder room is all too often decorated in exactly the same style as the room it happens to adjoin. In most home settings this means the rest room will have the same design as the hallway. However, there is no good reason that your corridor and powder room should share the same wallpaper and flooring. For the smallest room in the home, invest some thought into designing it just as you would for other living spaces. After all, your guests will be likely to pay the powder room a visit and a well designed one will make them feel comfortable in your home.
