Small Bathroom Design Ideas and Tips

You spend a great deal of time in the bathroom getting ready for the day and ending your night and so does the rest of your family. Unfortunately, many homes have bathrooms with very limited space, making the room look cluttered or making you feel claustrophobic in your own home. However, with a few simple tips, you can make the most of your space.

1. Install a Counter Over the Commode

In a small bathroom, you're limited on the amount of space you have to install counters and shelving. Instead of forgoing on a place for decorations or storage, place the shelving or countertop over top of the toilet.

2. Choosing a Vanity

When selecting a vanity, choose one with a shelf underneath. You can use the shelf to store towels, soap or any other toiletries that would take up space in another location. Although a floating vanity doesn't do much for storage, it does make the room look larger due to the extra space in between the vanity and the sink.

3. Choosing a Sink

Opt for a version without a faucet on it already. Find a faucet that mounts to the wall instead. You'll save yourself a few inches of space by not having it attached to the sink.

4. Positioning the Vanity

Purchase a rounded vanity or a corner model to reduce some of the wasted space in the bathroom.

5. Selecting a Shower/Tub

Look for a seated tub, or you may want to find one with a thin shape. They come in a variety of shapes, so you'll be able to find one that makes the most of the space. Corner tubs or freestanding ones save space. Make sure you take measurements before making a final decision.

6. Wall Mount the Sink

Wall mount the sink to save space underneath and give the illusion of more space. You could always install a sleek cabinet or shelving underneath the sink to save even more space.
