Design Tips for Small Bathrooms

September 2, 2019

Trying to make the most of a small space? Having a smaller-than-you’d-prefer bathroom in your home isn’t ideal, but with a few clever design and storage tips, you can enjoy a beautiful, comfortable bathroom at almost any size! Here are a few of our favorite bathroom design hacks for small spaces.

1. Choose light colors for your floors, walls, and counters.

You’ve undoubtedly heard this before, but it’s worth mentioning again—great lighting and light colors go a long way. Designing with white tiles and countertops will help make your fall space feel much bigger and airier.

2. Go big with mirrored surfaces.

Much like our tip about light colors, mirrors make your room feel bigger without much fuss. Decorating with a big statement mirror will add even more appeal to your bright, light bathroom.

3. Use cabinets and shelving to create vertical storage.

You can’t do much about the length and width of your bathroom, but you sure can make the most of the height! Ask us about installing custom cabinetry to maximize your vertical space. You’d be amazed by how much unused space you probably have in your small bathroom!

4. Opt for subtle, sleep design.

Choose design elements that are subtle and sleep—wainscotting, crown molding, and subway tiles are all great examples of this.

5. Stick with quality over quantity.

When you’re working with a small room, you have the luxury of choosing just a few pieces that you absolutely love. Focus your attention (and your resources) on making sure you get the sink, showerhead, countertops, toilet, etc. that look the best, and skip all the clutter and extras that you don’t really need.
