Go Gorgeous But Stay Practical With Vanities
Make your sink unit design work for you. Chunky wooden units can make your bathroom appear smaller so take a look at vanities with shelving so you have a place to stash your extra towels.
Look Tidy With Baskets
Make your bathroom look pristine by hiding your bits and bobs in baskets. Fabric lined ones are great for concealing personal items and cleaning products, while rubber coated wire baskets are useful for storing shampoos and cleaners while also draining away excess water.
Raise Shelves Up
Open shelving units promise airy spaciousness, perfect for a snug bathroom. So keep your storage up high with stacked floating shelves. Also try storage ladders as an inexpensive solution that won’t cut into too much floor space.
Hang And Display
Small artworks can create a focal point and add character to your bathroom. Even hanging your jewellery on a pretty hook can add interest to your sanctuary. And on the plus side, it’s a convenient place to grab a last-minute accessory and be out the door in half the time!
Make Every Inch Of Space Count
Take advantage of pockets of storage space, and we mean the teeniest and tiniest of pockets. We love this idea of using a bath tray as an elegant and accessible spot to keep everyday bath products organised.
Keep Only Your Essentials On The Countertop
Cosy bathrooms can get cluttered very quickly so if you haven’t already, adopt a ‘use then store’ philosophy. Throw out any mismatched bathroom accessories and invest in a bathroom accessories set to store essentials in and make your countertop look instantly tidier.
Get Over Your Curtain Phobia
Glass showers doors look classy, but boy can they take up much-needed space. Shower-and-tub combos work better for shorter and narrower rooms – curtains can be pulled across as required, opening up and closing off your bathroom. Ahh, extra room and a tub to relax in, no complaints here!
Let Natural Light Do the Work for You
Nothing beats natural light. It makes any room look bigger, not to mention applying your make-up in the morning easier. So arrange any moveable bathroom furniture to make the most of daylight.
But If You Can’t Make it, Then Fake It
If the amount of natural light in your bathroom is limited, it’s okay to fake it. While functionality is crucial in small spaces, when it comes to creating your own slice of heaven, a touch of luxury doesn’t hurt. Take it up a notch by hanging a mini chandelier, instead of a standard light fitting. Pure paradise.
Plant Your Sanctuary
Plants won’t just give your bathroom a lush straight-out-of-a-magazine look but they also help purify the air and get rid of stuffiness. Small air plants like mother-in-law’s tongues (sansevierias) thrive in low light and love humid conditions, but for a grander statement, opt for a peace lily (spathiphyllum).
