Here’s what you need to do to get the look…

Choose A Corner Sink

Large sinks may be out of place in a smaller bathroom. This can actually become a stumbling block rather than a statement of style in a small space. However, tiny sinks may not offer you the functionality you need either. So, what’s the solution? 

We suggest considering a not-so-traditional corner sink, right beside your toilet. This works a lot better than being placed awkwardly alongside the shower. Now you can wash your hands, and see yourself too! 

Float Your Vanity

Large vanities can be cumbersome in a small space. Choose a floating vanity that will make your room feel more spacious and a add a little luxe factor to your bathroom. It will also free up some much-needed floor space when you step aside to wash your hands.

Open Your Shower

Save on cash and create the illusion of space with an open shower. Skip the purchase of a door – this will not only visually increase the size of your bathroom, but also provide a convenient “step in, step out” style that is perfect if you need to “rinse and run”.

Choose a Modern Wall Mounted Toilet

Installing a wall mounted toilet brings an instant modern aesthetic to a small bathroom. The bowl and actuator plate are the only parts in the room, meaning the bowl is much closer to the wall. In turn, this will save you precious floor space and legroom in a small bathroom. 

Go For Luxe Lighting

The right lighting can totally add an element of elegance in even the smallest room. Add a few warm tone lights to your bathroom. This will enhance the luminescence and reflectiveness of the room. Furthermore it will help to create a brighter and roomier-feeling space. 

Choose The Right Mirror

Mirrors come in many shapes and sizes. A mirror reflects light and space and can instantly make a smaller room feel much larger. In the bathroom, we suggest looking for a modern round mirror. This will certainly pack a punch in a smaller space and create a more contemporary aesthetic! Suspended just above the soap shelf, a round mirror will open up the space like only a mirror can!

Be Strategic With Colour

Colours can influence the feel and overall look of a room. Dark walls may make the room feel smaller, while light walls often make a room feel larger. However, to add a bit of contrast, you could choose moody, darker floor tiles paired with lighter walls. Check out this beautiful monochromatic bathroom (above) and see how well the dark floors work with the lighter subway surrounds. This will add visual interest and a luxe factor, even in the smallest room. 

Less Is More

Don’t overthink your small bathroom. Keeping things simple can help you achieve a more streamlined look. Less is more here. Therefore, we suggest designing your bathroom for the space available. Keep it clean, uncluttered and in tip-top shape. This will ensure it feels welcoming without overwhelming.
