Mistakes You Should Escape Making in a Small Bathroom

You can get a lot out of a small bathroom. In this article, we tell you what to avoid and what other things that you thought were okay you should banish.

1. MISTAKE: PUTTING FURNITURE TOO BIG OR TOO SMALL

Proportion: seek balance in sizes. The furniture very large in a small bathroom can be disproportionate. But if they are too small, the effect will be that of more compressed space. Keeping the proportions is essential. Everything must have a balance. A trick: take the sink cabinet from side to side and you will widen the front.

2. DO NOT PUT WALL TAPS

Many times we miss this idea, ideal for small bathrooms in which it is necessary to save space on the sink counter. It is a mistake not to take into account the reform to bring the water intake up to the height of the wall necessary to install a wall tap.

3. DO NOT CREATE CABINS WHEN DISTRIBUTING A SMALL BATHROOM

Depending on the organization of the space, a mini bathroom can also have cabinets. It is a mistake to think that they are not for him. The shape of the plant may even allow it. Do not rule it out.

4. MISTAKE: FORGETTING A BIG, BIG MIRROR

Don’t make the mistake of forgetting to install a large mirror in the bathroom. The mirrors visually expand the rooms and give the wall depth. They are like a window since, in addition, they favor the reflection of light. So put a large mirror in the bathroom, even on one wall from side to side, be it the sink or another.

5. NOT ONLY IN WHITE

White is a safe bet to use in bathroom wall tiles when you want to gain a feeling of spaciousness, but not the only one. It is a mistake not to think of other shades. Incorporate other colors that create some contrast on walls or furniture. Have no fear: the earth tones, neutral, medium gray, and pastel are very appropriate.

6. DISCARD TEXTURES AND PATTERNS

As in the previous case of color, a mistake that you should not make when decorating a small bathroom is to think that all the coverings have to be smooth. A smooth surface is visually lighter but it is possible to incorporate wall tiles that provide texture, even discreet patterns – as in this bathroom with the metro wall tile and the geometric hydraulic floor tiles. In the right colors, it will enrich.

7. DON’T MAKE THE MISTAKE: YES TO WOOD

Did you forget that wood is also for a small bathroom? It will give warmth. Combined with white in a natural tone it is light and comfortable. In addition, there are ceramic coatings that imitate this finish with a very pleasant effect (without worrying that it is a variety that withstands contact with moisture and water). Don’t forget the wood!

8. NEGLECT LIGHTING

And there was light. Lighting in a small bathroom is essential. It can make a difference. The rule is that you install spotlights on the ceiling, but you also create other points of attention. Take care of the light in the mirror area, which does not dazzle or cast shadows. Spotlights, wall lights, and pendant lamps will help you in this space. As for ambient lighting, installing an LED strip under the sink unit (if it does not reach the floor) will make it seem lighter.

9. DON’T CONSIDER SLIDING DOORS

Both for opening the screen in the shower area and for the access door. In small bathrooms grant meters. One square meter is gained with a sliding access door. And in the case of the screen, there must be a free space of 70×70 cm to enter and exit. A sliding design will facilitate this point. You should know that there are visually very light sliding designs that are easy to clean.
