It is like a giant crossword puzzle when you have to make everything available in a super small bathroom space. The challenges include allowing enough clearance for a shower, configuring the toilet and sink to code and where to put the towels and t.p. Here are some tips for designing the small bathroom.
1. Install a Corner Sink
Sometimes, the available traffic lane in a bathroom can be disrupted by a pedestal sink. It is better to place a corner sink across from the toilet than from the shower. An awkward walk-around condition is created by the opening and closing of the shower door.
2. Use a Shower Curtain
Space is saved by a shower curtain that moves back and forth over a glass door that moves in and out. Shower-tub can fit into small spaces with 60 inches in length.
3. Float The Vanity
There becomes free space for small items if you mount a vanity above the floor. It also makes you bathroom appear bigger.
4. Round the Vanity
Opt for a rounded style vanity if corners of it would get in a way as sharp corners of it can make hip hazards. In a square space, a round vanity can work which will prevent bruised hips.
5. Extend The Counter Over The Toilet
With stone or a wood slab, this banjo-style arrangement can be done. Enough space is created by the extended counter for a few needed items. Placement of toilet is not affected, and the look is clean.
6. Use a Large-scale Pattern
Large scale pattern can make look like an expanded space in your bathroom. The bathroom may feel bigger, despite the same square footage.
7. Skip The Shower Door
5 feet wide bathroom has just enough space to squeeze in a toilet and a 30-by 60-inch tub. Instead of a glass shower door, consider a glass panel in such tight conditions. This will free up needed elbow room and keep most of the water in the shower.
8. Expand The Mirror
In the vanity, two people at once can use the mirror if you have a mirror stretch across the wall. Every inch helps in less-than-ideal space conditions.
9. Mount The Towel Bar on a Door
Mounting a towel bar on the shower door keeps towels handy when space is at a minimum. In a nearby linen closet, you might need to store the bulk of your towels but to dry off, one towel close by is essential.
10. Install a Trough Sink
A good-looking space solution is to have the narrow, clean styling of a trough sink. These sinks have a low profile. They free up floor space if they are wall-mounted.
