Small space living in the city? From London to NYC, if you’re living in a small apartment, you know it calls for creative design solutions.
Many city apartment bathrooms can be small and cramped. There are simple ways though to make your bathroom feel and appear more spacious.
Caroma offers these 5 small bathroom design tips:
1. Choose light wall colors:
“Pale colors, especially pastels and off-whites are appropriate choices, since they reflect light and increase the room’s brightness. If you are using wallpaper, make sure they are not heavily patterned with dark colors.”
2. Brighten up with lights:
“Additional lighting can definitely add some openness to the bathroom without taking up any space. Try incorporating natural lighting through skylights or bigger windows. Consider additional light fixtures in low-light areas.”
3. Add mirrors:
“A strategically-placed mirror, for example, placing a mirror opposite an outside window, will help capture the incoming light and reflect it back in the room. Full-length horizontal mirrors will produce an effect of a wider space, while vertical mirrors give a sense of a raised height.”
4. Replace floor cabinets with wall cabinets:
“Swapping floor cabinets with storage units that are suspended on the wall will dramatically help create more floor space. Installing floating shelves in the shower and around the toilet is a great place to store shampoo, toiletries and other bits and pieces.”
“Try to eliminate as much clutter as possible. Instead of storing your beauty items on the vanity, store them in the cabinet. Make an effort to make only necessary items or simple decorations visible.”
