The small bathroom design keyword for 2017 and beyond is: floating. Float everything including the toilet from your walls. It’s a great way to make cleaning easier when you can access the floor below. Not to mention the space looks bigger because our eye tends to judge space by analyzing the floor area. You also maximize valuable wall space which is often left bare. And let’s be honest it looks pretty fresh and cool!
Create a look that’s twice as stunning by duplicating the style two (or even three) times. This is most commonly done over double sinks but multiple mirrors could be used over a long single-sink vanity as an alternative to one large mirror.
Gather different sizes and/or styles of mirrors and hang them in a gallery-wall-style arrangement. Be sure to vary the mirrors so that they complement instead of compete against one another. Keep them all on one wall or you’ll risk a funhouse effect.
Inspiration for a luxury marble bathroom comes from different sources like the one above seen in the Penthouse Suite Garden Court Hotel in Palo Alto. Every detail decorating this fabulous bathroom adds depth and a sense of comfort. Candlelight and roses alongside fresh puffy towels are something you’d want to see permanently in your bathroom.
A simple mirror can get a glamorous update with the addition of backlighting. You can purchase mirrors with built-in lights or add them yourself to the mirror of your choosing. Illuminated mirrors are ideal for applying makeup and seeing your face in a detailed (but flattering) way. They’re great for bathrooms with low natural light. Just be sure that your lighting is soft not harsh or fluorescent.
Small bathrooms may seem like a difficult design task to take on; however these spaces may introduce a clever design challenge to add to your plate. Creating a functional and storage-friendly bathroom may be just what your home needs.
