How to manage space in a small bathroom

 

 If we exclude bedroom, bathroom is probably the most used room in our home. We do not even realize how much time it takes for putting make-up, taking showers and performing other hygienic necessities. At the same time, this is the room where we like to come and relax and perhaps the only place in our home where we are completely alone.
For some people, having a small bathroom doesn’t represent any problem. However, there is much more for those who would prefer having more space, a bigger bathtub and additional cupboards and cabinets where they can place all their cosmetic products.
Luckily for us, there are numerous ways we can address this issue. At the same time, even if you have a small bathroom, that doesn’t mean it needs to look bad. Instead, you are able to apply various tricks which will provide more space to your bathroom without losing its charm.

1. Focus on one object
When designing a bathroom, we usually focus on overall theme. Like with any other part of the house, this is the best option. If you have a small bathroom, there is a high risk that it will look bad regardless of your efforts. But, there are other tricks which can be used to improve interior design. Instead of putting emphasis on a bathroom as a whole (which is most likely cluttered), try focusing on one item. This way, your guests are less likely to notice limited space within it. Mirror is always a good choice. People have a habit of looking themselves in a mirror as soon as they step in a bathroom. If it’s big, with a nice frame, they are less likely to notice the rest of the room. Same goes with the shower. It takes largest space within this room. Clean, chic shower will attract enough attention.
