Some of the other small bathroom ideas you may be interested in trying out include setting up a wall-hung sink and toilet. Also, if you are skillful in plumbing, why not change your entire plumbing arrangement in order to make maximum use of room space. Perhaps, you could fit in a corner shower stall into the area opposite the entryway, instead of placing a sink here, as is the norm. Mind you, these projects are labor-intensive; having said that, they are probably the best ways to correct design that utilizes space poorly.
Walls – Although water resistant wallpaper is still a reliable choice for the walls of a bathroom, tiles are becoming more and more popular as a fashionable and durable replacement. The only drawback of tiled walls is that they don’t do well with condensation and can make a regular bathroom feel like a steam room. To solve this problem you can install under floor heating and/or quality ventilation. If simple paint more aptly fits your needs, alternating vertical stripes of similar colors is a great way to make a small bathroom look significantly larger.
If major renovation is not possible, there are still many tips and ideas that you may be able to utilize in order to give the appearance of a bigger room. First, consider the bathroom door. Can it be changed to swing in the other direction? That alone may lessen the feeling of claustrophobia. Or you may wish to consider changing it to a sliding door or even bi-fold closet doors in order to save some space. In most bathrooms the vanity cupboard and sink take up a lot of space. You may wish to replace this with a stand-alone pedestal sink, which will increase the look and feel of the room and make it seem less cluttered. If you are worried that you will be losing storage space, consider hanging wall units, shelving or hanging baskets to hold supplies. The more floor space that you can see will make the room seem bigger.
Mirrors can literally double the perceived space of a room, so a big mirror is absolutely essential for a small bathroom. This is the only case where bigger is better, so look for a mirror whose size borders on being excessive to the space allotted to it.
Baths – Baths are usually the first thing you notice when you walk into a bathroom, and there are many options available for any renovation. For larger bathrooms a modern roll-top bathtub is a great choice. These baths are sometimes mounted on blocks or in a cradle, and they are designed to sit in the middle of the room and act as the centerpiece. For smaller bathrooms the tub can be built into the surrounding material, and for exceptionally small bathrooms, renovation specialists can build a recessed shower that opens up the space to other amenities such as toilets and vanities.
