How to equip a very small bathroom: 10 tips with examples

If you are not the owner of a spacious bathroom, it seemsthat it is simply impossible to make it comfortable, beautiful and comfortable. We are sure that this is not the case. Today for you - the best tips for arranging a small bathroom It can even be roomy, ergonomic and aesthetically pleasing. The main thing is to use all your ingenuity and an objective approach in its design at the same time. In this article, we talk about what you can safely get rid of, what, on the contrary, is better to add to the bathroom and, of course, what plumbing to choose for a small area, without losing comfort. Correct finishing Renovation of any room begins with finishing, and the bathroom is no exception. It is very important here not only not to be mistaken with the choice of texture, color and other details, but also to make the most of the opportunities that this finish gives. Small tiles will visually make the room more spacious, vertical lines will stretch it up and "raise" the ceilings, and a light palette will also play into your hands. And the tiles can also be used for zoning, which is especially important in a combined bathroom: for example, with a general neutral background, you can highlight a washbasin, toilet, washing machine or shower with a strip of brighter tiles. Our opinion:- Remember that tiles are not the only option for finishing a bathroom. You can try special plaster, paint, or even wallpaper. In the article, we consider in detail examples of the use of the latter, and discuss which material to choose for finishing the ceiling in the bathroom. Built-in elements The more individual small items in the bathroom (shelves, hooks, baskets, stands, cans and bottles), the more cluttered it seems. To avoid this, install built-in furniture in the bathroom. Try to hide any open shelves and towel holders, for example, in a cabinet behind a mirror. If the bathroom has niches, even very small ones, fit shelves in them and cover them with frosted glass. This will create additional storage space that won't take up extra space and create a cluttered feel. Free floor The more free space in the roomfloor, the more spacious it looks. Accordingly, in a small bathroom, floor furniture and plumbing should be avoided as much as possible. Pay attention to hanging options, since today manufacturers in abundance offer wall-mounted toilets, sinks and bedside tables. If your bathroom will definitely have a bathtub, then do not cover it with a screen, but choose a model with legs. Smart lighting Ideal for your bathroomthe room has at least a small window - natural light makes the space lighter and more spacious. If it is not there, which is almost always found in old typical houses, do not be discouraged and create the right light yourself. So, for a small bathroom, spot lighting, evenly spaced around the perimeter, is suitable. Another plus is the mirror illumination. Remember that there should be as much light as possible, but at the same time it should remain comfortable for you first of all. Niches and corners When arranging rooms, it is the corners andniches are most often unused and unfairly forgotten. Meanwhile, it is with their help that you can place almost twice as many interior items in a tiny bathroom. What can you do with them? Niches are great places to install a washing machine, water heater, bedside table or laundry basket. And in the small recesses, you can organize shelves for storing small items or towels. Do not forget about the corners: a sink, toilet or even a bathtub may appear in them. Angle sinks - the perfect solution for the mostSmall bathrooms. They save space, are absolutely comfortable to use and are available in any price categories. In order to install them, it is enough to have at least 35 centimeters on each side of the corner. As a rule, they are hinged, although models with a pedestal in nature also exist. We studied the range of compact corner washbasins and selected several examples from different manufacturers.

But we are not looking for the truth, especially since in this case everyone has their own truth. How to make a choice? For example, asking yourself when was the last time you took a bath. If you are at a loss to answer, then the shower cabin is definitely your option. With its help, you will not only free up additional space, but also. For heightened effect, choose clear glass doors instead of frosted ones. As a rule, the minimum size of shower rooms is 70 x 70Centimeters, but experts recommend choosing models at least 90 x 90 cm, so that the inside is not crowded. You can buy a ready-made cabin, and build it yourself, fitting it to the desired size. Compact models for every taste and purse can be found in the brands Delafon, Roca, Heritage Bathrooms, Duka, Glass, Dorff, etc. Shower cabin Duka Pura 5000 Shower enclosure Teuco Soft Profile G03-G05 Or shower+ bathtub For those who still cannot choose between a bathtub and a shower cabin, the combined option is suitable. It is multifunctional and at the same time compact, which is simply irreplaceable in a small bathroom. Just like a shower corner, the combisystem can be assembled independently, based on the dimensions of the bathroom and the features of the layout. Of course, it will take up a little more space than a regular shower stall, and most likely you will have to sacrifice space for a washing machine or a full-fledged sink with a pedestal. But you will get everything you need for washing and spa treatments. Quite a lot of brands produce ready-made solutions for combining. Among them - Roca, Golf, Teuco, Albatros and Kohler. The cost of such combinations varies from 50 000 to 500 000 rubles.

As we said earlier, to create space, it is imperative to empty the floor, which means that wall-mounted toilets, bidets and sinks are our everything. The installation system is needed in order to hide all the pipes and hide everything unsightly behind the false wall. Thanks to this, even a small bathroom will look aesthetically pleasing and will not seem cluttered. Versatility In confined spacesevery thing must be a superhero: perform not one, but two, three or even four functions. Fill in every free centimeter, leave no empty corners - let everything in the bathroom work for you. For example, if you do decide to put your car in the bathroom, then use the space above it for shelves or mini-dryers. The same goes for the toilet. Are you going to hang a mirror over the sink? Let it not be simple, but become a door for a small cabinet. Our opinion:- Be sure to find a use for the place under the sink. If the size of the bathroom allows, organize a cabinet with several drawers. If the bathroom is very tiny, we recommend that you pay attention to the "lazy Susan" (lazy Susan). So abroad they call rotating, divided into sectors, stands. Most often, these are trays for spices or snacks, but they can be used not only in the kitchen. For example, you can make your "lazy Suzanne" under the sink and store shampoos, powder, or cleaning products there. Compact plumbing Have you used all the previous tips, but still does not fit the required minimum into a bathroom with an area of ​​several square meters? There remain radical measures - for example, to reduce not the quantity (and by no means the quality), but the dimensions of the plumbing. Fortunately, manufacturers have taken care of those who do not have spacious bathrooms, and regularly produce lines of compact models of sinks, bathtubs and even toilet bowls. If you decide to install a compact in the bathroomToilet, then you can use either hinged, or specially reduced models: with a flat cistern or a small bowl. Such toilet bowls produce factories Laufen, Jica, Roca, Ideal Standart and others. The price range ranges from 1,000 to 10,000 rubles. Flaminia Minilink compact toilet bowl Mounted toilet Laufen Mimo Mini-bath -An ideal solution for those who are not ready to trade leisure in the environment of foam and warm water for quick washing in the shower, but the area does not allow you to put a full cup in the bathroom. Of course, in a compact bath an adult can only wash while sitting, but such a model, as a rule, is deeper. You can find small baths from Glass Design, Roca, Ravak, Jacuzzi and Teuco.
