When it comes to making the most of the space in a small bathroom, the “less is more” rule is essential. A well-designed bathroom should be comfortable, functional, and attractive, which is achieved through proper separation between sanitary ware and furniture, as well as a good combination of coverings. In this article, we share five key tips to make your small bathroom comfortable and functional.
- Anthropomorphic measurements: the importance of getting proportions right
Design professionals use anthropomorphic proportion systems, based on human body measurements, to create comfortable and functional architectural spaces. A bathroom that does not meet these minimum measurements can be uncomfortable and impractical.
- Sliding doors to maximize space
Sliding doors allow for freeing up space by eliminating the need for additional space for the swing of hinged doors. For each sliding door, approximately 1.5 m² of free surface is gained. In addition, fixed or sliding shower screens are recommended for added convenience.
- High, low, and drawer storage to optimize space
High storage frees up floor space and makes it easy to access stored items without bending down. Low cabinets with pull-out drawers are a more practical option than hinged or sliding doors, as they allow for easier access to the contents.
- Decorative mirrors to create depth and warmth
Mirrors are essential in a bathroom, but their strategic placement can enhance the sense of depth and bring warmth to the space. Use mirrors with decorative intent to achieve a more welcoming atmosphere.
- Suspended sanitary ware and built-in cisterns to save space
Compact models of toilets and sinks allow for better use of space and facilitate cleaning the area. Built-in cisterns and storage can also be useful, as long as they do not reduce the useful surface. In this regard, installing a low-tank toilet instead of one not designed to hide the cistern can be considered.
