Tips for decorating small decorated bathrooms
1. Free the floor and put everything up
Take advantage of the bathroom walls to accommodate hygiene items, towels and decorative objects. This use can be made with the use of niches, shelves and supports. The important thing is to free the floor and the lower part of the bathroom, increasing the free circulation area and creating a greater feeling of space.
The doors, whether in the cabinets, shower stall or even the main bathroom, should preferably be sliding. This type of opening frees up space for other objects and facilitates internal circulation.
Bathroom cabinets must be proportional to the size of the bathroom. No huge offices to hinder movement. Opt for more compact models below the sink. Or simply, eliminate them from the decor and replace them with shelves and other types of organizers.
4. Shelves and niches
Shelves and niches are in high decor, including bathrooms. In them, it is possible to accommodate objects of daily use, in addition to purely decorative pieces. However, as the bathroom is small, give preference to few niches / shelves and use few objects inside them. Select the most important ones for the day to day and the others keep it elsewhere. The accumulation of objects in small places further reduces the feeling of space.
5. Enjoy the smallest spaces
Do not overlook the corners of your bathroom. They can be very useful in both decoration and object storage. You can, for example, use the top of the toilet to place shelves or fix brackets to the back of the door. Also try to take advantage of the space inside the box and below the sink, if it doesn't have a closet.
6. Floor and walls
Give preference to larger, wide, light-colored floors and coverings. It is possible to use tiles and other types of more decorative coatings, but choose only a wall or a part of the bathroom to apply the effect.
Choose a light color to make up the base of the bathroom. It doesn't have to be white, nowadays the palette of Off White and pastel shades are on the rise. Make the colors stronger and more vibrant to compose details inside the bathroom.
8. Decorative objects
You can decorate the small bathroom with decorative pieces, yes! Use comics on the wall, flower pots on the sink counter and pots of foliage on the floor or hanging on the wall. And, as you can't escape the use of cosmetics, shampoos, lotions and creams, consider the possibility of using other bottles for them instead of their own packaging. Choose more beautiful bottles, like glass ones, for example.
Use mirrors in your bathroom. They are great for creating depth and breadth. However, prefer models without a frame or with thin frames. Another option is to use mirrors, in addition to having a mirror, they have an internal compartment where it is possible to store hygiene items, for example.
A bright environment is everything, especially when it comes to small spaces. Invest in this item in your bathroom with direct and indirect lights.
11. Brackets and hooks
Like shelves and niches, brackets and hooks are very useful for keeping things in place and getting them off the floor. Use support for towels and toilet paper and, if you have a closet, use the inside of the doors to attach hooks.
12. Capriche in the trousseau
Towels and rugs are part of the bathroom decor. Keep this in mind when setting up your trousseau. Combine colors, textures and patterns with the rest of the bathroom. For example, if your bathroom has a rustic style, use a rope or sisal rug, for a more modern bathroom, prefer a layette of sober colors and geometric prints.
Mess definitely doesn't match small environments. Clutter makes the bathroom even smaller. Therefore, keep everything in order, especially if you use niches and shelves, since in these places objects are exposed.
