As a girl that likes to spend a lot of time in the bathroom doing self-care routines, I consider it to be one of my favorite areas where I usually start and end my day. That is why the tiny bathroom was one of my biggest concerns when I moved into a new small studio. I already knew that giving my bathroom a makeover in order to make it more functional was one of the first projects I needed to undertake. After doing some research and consulting with a few professionals, I realized that the lack of space shouldn’t be a problem for creating a bathroom that is both practical and visually pleasing. If you are also facing the same issue, read on to find out some of my solutions that you can also try.
First things first, you might want to ditch the bathtub as it can take up a lot of space, and you may not be even using it as often. You can get a fairly large shower cabin and still end up with some space left over after removing the tub. A shower cabins with a glass door would also be perfect, as it can let more light in the cabin and give your bathroom a more modern look and appearance.
Another good space-saving technique is adding shelving on the walls. They can make for a useful storage space where you can keep towels, personal hygiene products, beauty products, or maybe place calming candlelight and soothing scents.
Mirrors could also work perfectly for a small bathroom as they reflect light thus making the area look larger and more open. There are countless of types of bathroom mirrors Australia homeowners can choose from. They come in a variety of forms and designs – from sleek LED lighted frameless mirrors to some quite flashy ones. You just need to take your time go thoroughly through the different types of bathroom mirrors Australia stores offer, be it offline or online. A frameless mirror can make the bathroom seem larger as without the frame it can reflect more light around the bathroom, bringing life and creating an illusion of a bigger space. If you get a framed mirror, on the other hand, that looks chunky or overpowering, it will minimise the amount of light that can be reflected.
You can hang a large mirror on the back of the bathroom door or install a wall-mounted mirrored cabinet. A well-chosen, stylish mirrored cabinet unit apart from being a design feature can provide you with the much-needed storage space in a small bathroom. That’s actualy what I chose to do and it now serves me perfectly when it comes to storing all of my makeup, hair products, creams and other necessities I love to have at hand when I do my morning and night-time routines.
