Easy Interior Design Tips For Your Small Bathroom

While many people think bathroom design ends at making sure all your fittings match, it is actually a lot more intensive than that. If you are lucky enough to have a window in one of your bathrooms you should definitely consider utilizing it for a source of natural light. Coupled with effective positioning of your bathtub, you can really make your bathroom space come alive.

Utility is also a big concern for those with smaller spaces and putting in compact and useful shelving will open up other areas and maximize your comfort while minimizing the potential for countertop clutter to take over. Other popular concepts we often see in succesful bathroom designs are recessed lighting and hidden compartments where toothbrushes and other accessories can be stowed. You’ll rarely see a raised sink unit if your dealing with a small condo sized bathroom.


With so much information on the net, it can be overwhelming deciding what the best options are for each element of your home can be hard. We highly recommend investing in at the very least, an on-site consultation with a qualified interior designer.
