Big Ideas for Small Bathrooms
Whether you are looking to redecorate your small bathroom or design one from scratch, today at Hasl Bathrooms Gold Coast we will offer some quick tips on how to do so.
You’ve probably asked how a small bathroom can be functional, without compromising in aesthetics. By combining practicability and visual harmony it’s possible and not so difficult. You must think of each and every element in your bathroom and how it interacts with the available space. Does any of them occupy a larger surface than necessary? In order to maximise a small bathroom, there are a few things you could do.
Investing in good storage will reduce visual clutter, instantly making your room feel bigger, replace wall shelves & cabinets with a spacious vanity.
Purchasing a small bath is also a great solution, especially when there are so many chic models out there, or if you have the room for a freestanding bath, this will also create the feeling of more space.
Mirrors are another great way to create the illusion of more space and brighten smaller bathrooms. Full-length mirrors offer real wow-factor, while mirrored tiles are a subtle way to boost reflections, bouncing natural light around the room.
Make the most of natural light with cleverly positioned windows & coverings. Showcase focal points with a mix of ambient and task lighting. Back-light shelves and vanities with recessed LEDs to add a sense of depth, illuminate the surrounds of mirrors to draw the eye around the room.
Fixtures & Fittings
Smaller Bathrooms can offer big benefits. With less space your budget will stretch further, opening up possibilities for bespoke finishes, designer tiles and tapware.
Choosing tiles in a light neutral palette is a simple design trick to allow walls to recede into the background and enhance the sense of space. In small areas, keep the majority of the walls and floor neutral so the tiles are not too overwhelming. For a splash of colour, do so with feature tiles on a splash-back or walls within the shower. Larger rectangular tiles are a good choice to enhance the sense of space. Laid in a brick pattern, they will elongate the room, while they’ll give the illusion of more height if placed vertically.
The more floor you can see, the larger the room will feel, so opt for floating vanities and wall-mounted toilets and accessories. If you only have room for a shower, ensure it’s as spacious as possible by creating a wet area with a frameless screen. Large floor tiles, as well as light colour paint or wall tiles give the feeling of space, whereas dark feels like the room is closing in on you.. Using light colors will make walls appear to recede, creating a bright and airy feel.
