Just because your bathroom lacks square footage doesn’t mean it’s destined to remain a strictly practical room. It can and will be stunning, with a little visual magic. Our design experts have put together a guide to show you how you can make the most of your small bathroom. From floating shelves to mosaic tiles, our tips will help you maximize even the smallest of bathroom spaces.
#1 Choose a Bold Color
Choose bright turquoise blue walls to provide a stylish contrast to traditional white tile floors in a tiny bathroom. A bold shade of bright fuchsia wall paint can turn even the smallest of powder rooms into a glamorous scene. Whimsical wallpaper can make a big statement in a small space. A dark-colored wall allows flashy gold fixtures to shine. Don’t be shy – choose your favorite color or pattern and let the designing begin!
#2 Floating Shelves
A pair of wall-mounted shelves can turn a cramped bathroom corner into a storage-savvy scene. Little to no storage space on your pedestal sink? Mount a picture ledge above your sink to store cosmetics, perfume bottles, and other small necessities. A slender floating glass shelf will also offer space for stashing a range of toiletries without cramping up a small bathroom. Floating shelves or picture ledges can also be installed on the wall above your tub to store shampoo, conditioner, and soap.
#3 Add Some Tile
Adding mosaic tile to the walls surrounding your bathtub or shower can create an artful display in any small bathroom. It will also divert attention away from a bathroom with an awkward design or layout.
#4 Add Texture
Mix textures such as a woven rug and a linen shower curtain with rattan baskets to add flair to a small bathroom. A beautiful woven basket provides more than enough storage room for rolled towels, bathtub toys, and other bathroom accessories. Chevron-style marble walls will also bring a touch of texture and movement to a tiny bathroom without taking up any floor space.
#5 Swap Out the Mirror
Replacing the current mirror with a more sophisticated or unusually shaped one is an easy and budget-friendly way to upgrade your small bathroom and elevate your bathroom’s entire ambiance, no renovations necessary. An oversized mirror reflects light and creates the illusion of more space in a tiny bathroom. Make mirror magic by creating a gallery wall composed of small, yet stately, mirrors to bring a touch of grandeur to a small powder room.
#6 Add Personality
A gallery wall filled with eclectic artwork or statement shower curtain can create an artful display that adds color and personality to any small bathroom without taking up any floor space! If you don’t have a lot of wall space to work with, prop a piece of art above your toilet tank. Let it lean against the wall for a sleek, nails-free display.
