1. Make use of wasted space
Choose a basin which has storage space underneath it, rather than a freestanding basin unit or purchase a mirror which also has a cupboard to have a practical but functional place to put your toiletries. This is the perfect way to make use of an item you might already have in your bathroom and eliminate the need to also have a separate storage unit. The other great choice about choosing a mirrored unit is that the mirror will also help to create the illusion of the bathroom being a larger space than it actually is. If you do find yourself needing extra storage then use open shelving with attractive baskets rather than investing in a cabinet which will make the space feel smaller.
2. Keep items off the floor
Making sure you fold the bath mat over the edge of the bath, store your toilet roll in a basket or installing somewhere to place your towels such as one of Designer Radiators Direct electric towel radiators is another great way of making the most of the space you have to work with. Even having just a few things on the floor can instantly make the space feel cramped and small. Having a designated place for everything will help your bathroom to appear cleaner and bigger than it might actually be; it also means that it makes your job much easier when it comes to tidying up, especially if you are short on time.
3. Control your clutter
Although a decorative item can really help to set your bathroom off and bring a sense of personality to the room, if you have too many knick-knacks you might find that it overpowering the space rather than adding to it. Keep the clutter to a minimum and maybe only showcase a few special pieces. Even just having clear surfaces can really help the illusion of having more space.
4. Clever appliances
A bath which is slightly shorter than the standard size, a smaller sink or a shower without a door…all these little tricks can really help when you are working with a bathroom which is perhaps limited on space. You need to be realistic about the space you have available, whether this means compromising on having a separate shower unit and bath or looking for appliances which are slightly smaller than the standard to make sure they fit into the space without dominating.
5. Go outside
If storage space is really an issue, why not consider placing a cupboard just outside the room? An attractive cupboard or armoire could add something to your hallway whilst being practical for your bathroom needs as well.
