We understand just how difficult it can be to renovate or design small spaces. You shop kitchen and bathroom cabinets online and search for the perfect fit, only to realize that the cabinets are too big for your tiny bathroom. Or a hundred other potential problems might rear their ugly heads and it's frustrating to say the least.
So, how do you redesign small spaces (particularly bathrooms) and pull off the perfect interior design? It might seem difficult on the surface if you're redesigning a bathroom for the first time. But have no fear because professionals have been thinking about this problem for decades and they've discovered some truly wonderful solutions that we'll share with you right now.
1. Put in a Pedestal Sink
Believe it or not, putting a pedestal sink into a small bathroom is a wonderful idea for one big reason. They hardly take up any space on the floor. And whether you know it or not, the extra floor space provided by a pedestal sink will come in very handy.
When your bathroom is small it often lacks storage space. An additional floor space might allow for a stylish basket or two on the floor which you can fill with extra towels, toilet paper, soap, shampoo, and other toiletries. You need to utilize every nook and cranny to make the most of this tiny room.
2. Vertical Space is Your Best Friend
Vertical space? What's that? It's the blank space on your wall that would perfectly fit tasteful vertical stacked shelving.
Maybe your space doesn't have too much room on the floor for storage baskets. Don't worry about a thing because vertical shelving can solve this problem.
This shelving is excellent because it provides so much additional room for storage. You can place towels and toiletries on it, or maybe add some potpourri or another decoration and before long your tiny bathroom feels larger and looks amazing.
3. Cabinets Make a World of Difference
You might be missing a medicine cabinet and have no room to add one above your sink. In this case, your best bet is to hang a cabinet above your toilet bowl.
This extra space is perfect for a cabinet. You can place all of your bathroom amenities there plus all of the things you'd typically find in a medicine cabinet including toothpaste, mouthwash, aspirin, prescriptions, and other odds and ends.
4. Extra Shelving Below the Sink
People often forget to look down when redesigning small bathrooms but you won't make this mistake. In fact, you may have just enough space under your sink to fit an extra shelf or two.
These low shelves are great places to store things like makeup, products for your hair and daily beauty regimen and even toiletries. Do something with this space instead of wasting it!
5. In-Drawer Outlets
Countertops can be prime space in a small bathroom. Adding an in-drawer powering outlet (like Docking Drawer's Style Drawer Blade) allows you to keep countertops clear by creating a dedicated space to neatly store and power hair accessories. These particular outlets are easy to install into new or existing cabinets and come equipped with a patented safety feature that cuts power when temperatures exceed 120 degrees - making them the simplest & safest in-drawer electrical outlet solution on the market.
Redesigning a small bathroom may seem like a nearly impossible job but it definitely doesn't have to be. Use the tips and helpful suggestions we've shared today and you'll have no trouble turning your tiny bathroom into a quaint and cozy room that feels absolutely perfect in your home.
