Designs for Small Bathrooms - Creative And Affordable Ideas
Looking for a few good ideas and designs for small bathrooms? Then read on for a few tips you can incorporate to create a bathroom that will match your decorating style. There's also a short video at the end that will give you some tips on how to transform if you can't remove the tile and other bathroom components.
First of all, walls can be painted, papered, paneled or tiled, or a mixture of any of these.
Paper will need to be from a waterproof range, and paint should be a washable finish such as eggshell.
Tiled splash areas around bath and wash basin are a good idea. But if you decide to tile the walls completely, choose large tiles to add a greater sense of space. A wall of very small tiles will look too dense and visually confusing in a small room.
A solid run of obviously patterned tiles should also be avoided for the same reason - it's better to use mostly plain tiles and add a few patterned ones as an occasional feature.
Because designs for small bathrooms have a large proportion of wall space in comparison with the room area, they look better if this is broken up by creating a border line half-way up.
Wood paneling has taken over in popularity from tiles for this -and is particularly good if you have uneven wall surfaces you want to hide.
The paneling can be topped with a narrow shelf to provide extra storage for toiletries.
And extending it to box in the bath will give the whole room a neat, streamlined look.
Make sure that the wood is well sealed so that it won't be affected by damp and steam. Finally, be sure to paint it in a washable finish.
