At Aquatic Bathrooms, we know that for small bathrooms, design and layout is crucial. For homeowners, designing and renovating a small bathroom on your own can feel a little bit like a game of tetris. Figuring out how to squeeze in a toilet, towel rack, sink, shower, a tub, enough space to navigate around everything, while still making it functional and stylish. That’s why at Aquatic Bathrooms, we work with the ideas you already have, but also rely on our experience to create the best possible outcome.
Small Bathroom Design Challenges
Despite the challenges that come with having a small bathroom, it’s worth the effort. According to Open Agent, renovating the bathroom can be one of the fastest ways to increase the value of your property. Bathrooms can also largely influence a purchasing decision. This is important to consider particularly if you are selling an older home in a more expensive location, now or in the future.
As a Brisbane based company, Aquatic Bathrooms has completed over 700 bathrooms in Brisbane alone. We know that it’s important to combine practicality, functionality, but also beautiful, high quality and individual style. The bathroom is a high use area of the house and it’s important to get it right.
In the initial stages, we first meet with the client to understand requirements and ideas, and then to view the space to see what we are working with. From here, we compile a design solution and proposal for the client to view prior to agreeing on a contract. While we work closely with you on the design of your small bathroom, here are a few great small bathroom design ideas.
Pick Fixtures with Storage
It is possible to create a stylish space, but also a practical one. In fact, storage space in any bathroom is vital. Having tubes of toothpaste, lotions, bottles, spare towels and soaps cluttering the limited bench space is not only annoying, but will make a small bathroom look even smaller.
Colour can play a large role in the size of the space. White or neutral colours are best for small bathrooms as they can make the room seem larger than it actually is. If you do want to add a little bit of colour, you can do this with towels or other accessories.
Keep It Simple
While we recommend adding your own accessories and individuality to your bathroom, you’ll also want a small bathroom to be kept simple. By choosing furniture and accessories with clean lines and a simple colour scheme, there will be a feeling of having more space.
The choice of colour, shape, size and placement of the bathroom tiles can make all the difference. Depending on the bathroom, larger tiles that carry on from the floor and continue up the walls, can work well. Another common way to create the illusion of space is to have the tiles finish half way up the wall. Tiling choices are extremely important and your choices will depend on your style preferences, space available and the layout of the bathroom.
