The bathroom is one of the environments that has the most restricted footage in the residences: therefore, many find it difficult to decorate this type of space. As the trend of apartments and homes with increasingly restricted areas has come to stay, it is more than necessary to use up techniques and creative approaches when decorating the small bathroom.
With some basic tips, it is possible to assemble a small bathroom with a beautiful, elegant and simple decoration. Remember that all elements can make a difference in this environment: the floor, the coverings, the colors, the sanitary equipment, the decorative accessories and the arrangement of the furniture.
A key tip for leaving the bathroom clean is with the use of light colors on the walls - among them white, light gray, nude, fendi and other similar shades - leaving the environment well highlighted with lighting and a greater sense of spaciousness. For those who prefer to create a contrast and highlight a punctual area, the recommended is to use a darker or colored floor or furniture. The touches of color can also be added through glass inserts or with modern and irreverent accessories. Another important artifice is the use of mirrors along the length of one or more walls, in addition to being functional, creates an optical illusion of space extension.
The most common coatings are glass pellets, hydraulic tiles and ceramics. The ideal in small bathrooms is to make the application horizontally, in the extension of the bathroom or add a detail in the box to ensure a little depth. Tiles and ceramics can be used with large pieces, without many details or drawings, so as not to pollute the look. In these cases, the less information, the better.
Cabinets and shelves
A cabinet or cabinet set under the sink helps you segment and organize toiletries and day-to-day bathroom amenities. The shelves can be fixed above the toilet or in other free areas without disturbing the circulation. In these cases, choose a light material such as glass or acrylic.
An excellent tip that can yield a good extra space is to leave a traditional door and choose a sliding door at the entrance of the bathroom, after all, they do not need an opening angle and do not occupy the internal space, besides being a modern alternative in the decoration.
