Today we will discuss 11 small bathroom design tips from our experience as interior designers and home remodelers. From both perspectives, small bathrooms can be a challenge to design. You want to make the most of the limited space, while also making the bathroom stylish and efficient. In this blog post. These tips will help you create a more functional and stylish small bathroom!

1. Maximize storage to make the most of the space.

As interior designers, we are experts at maximizing storage in small spaces. We know how to make the most of every nook and cranny, using creative storage solutions to keep everything organized and accessible. Here are a few tips to get you started: 

– Use vertical space to your advantage. Install shelves or cabinets high on the walls, or use a hanging rack for towels or clothes. 

– Think outside the box. Get creative with your storage solutions. Maybe there’s a spot under the sink that could be used for storing bottles of shampoo and conditioner, or a closet that could be turned into a mini pantry. 

– Use clear containers and baskets to store items visually. This will help you find what you need quickly and keep things looking neat and tidy.

2. Use light colors to brighten up.

Using light colors in your small bathroom can brighten up the space and make it feel more open. Light colors reflect more light than darker colors, so they can help to make a small bathroom feel brighter and more spacious. If you’re looking to give your small bathroom a quick and easy makeover, consider painting the walls in a light color.

3. Choose smaller, more efficient fixtures.

When remodeling or designing a small bathroom, it’s important to choose smaller and more efficient fixtures. This will help you make the most of the limited space you have. Here are three reasons why smaller fixtures are a must for small bathrooms:

1. They take up less space.

2. They use less water, which can save you money on your water bill.

3. They often have a more modern look and feel than larger fixtures.

4. Install a pedestal sink to free up floor space.

A pedestal sink is a great way to free up floor space in a small bathroom remodeling project. Because it doesn’t have a cabinet beneath it, there is more room to move around. Pedestal sinks are also available in a variety of styles and colors, so you can find one that will fit in with your décor.

5. Use a glass shower enclosure.

A glass shower enclosure is a great way to make a small bathroom feel larger. Not only does it give the illusion of more space, but it also allows natural light to enter the room, which can brighten up the entire area. Plus, it’s a great way to show off your beautiful tile work or marble flooring!

If you’re not ready to commit to a glass shower enclosure, then consider using a clear shower curtain or glass shower doors. These will also help make your small bathroom feel larger.

6. Hang a mirror.

When you’re in a small bathroom, every square foot counts. A mirror can make a small bathroom feel larger by creating the optical illusion of space.  

You can find mirrors in a variety of shapes and sizes, so it’s easy to find one that will fit your space. Plus, mirrors are relatively inexpensive, so they’re a great way to add style on a budget.

If you’re not sure where to hang your mirror, try hanging it above the sink or toilet. This will help reflect light and make the space feel brighter and more open. You can also use mirrors to create focal points in your bathroom design. Try hanging a large mirror in a decorative frame above the tub or placing two smaller mirrors on either side of the vanity. 

7. Install recessed lighting.

Contractors know best how to install recessed lighting in a small bathroom to create a more open feeling. By installing recessed lighting, you can brighten up the entire space and make it feel larger.

Recessed lighting is a great way to add ambient lighting to a small bathroom. By installing recessed lights in the ceiling, you can create a more open feeling in the space. This type of lighting is also a great way to add task lighting for tasks like applying makeup or shaving.

8. Use decorative tile to add visual interest.

Adding decorative tile to a small bathroom can add visual interest and make the space feel more stylish. Since small bathrooms often have limited wall space, using tile to add interest can help to make the space feel more spacious. Additionally, choosing a bold or interesting pattern for the tile can really make the bathroom pop.

9. Add some greenery.

Adding plants and flowers adds life and color to a small bathroom and can help to liven up the space and make it feel more inviting. Choose plants that thrive in humid environments, such as ferns or spider plants, for best results. If you have trouble keeping plants alive, opt for artificial plants instead. Just be sure to choose ones that look realistic so that they blend in well with the rest of the space.

10. Have some built-in shelves installed.

Installing custom-built shelves can help to make the most out of a small bathroom. By having designated storage space, everything has a place and it is easier to keep the area organized and clutter-free. This is especially helpful in a small bathroom where there is not a lot of room to spare.

11. Keep the counters clear.

One of the easiest and best ways to make a small bathroom feel more spacious is to keep the counters clear. This means no clutter, no toiletries on display, and no extra decor items taking up space. By keeping the counters clear, you’ll be able to maximize the amount of space in the room and make it feel much bigger than it actually is.

Closing Thoughts

From maximizing storage to using light colors and decorative tiles can all help you can create a more open and inviting space.  Items that are contractor-related, such as installing glass shower enclosures and recessed lights are also ways that you can create a more efficient and stylish space that you and your family will enjoy for years to come.
