Evaluate the available space

Is your bath big enough, or do you constantly bump your elbows while taking a shower? Can you freely enter without the door bumping into any of the fixtures? If you have to squeeze yourself in just to get past the door because of the limited space, you might want to consider relocating the sink or a cabinet, or change the way the door opens from inwards to outwards, so that you and your guests can enter without trouble.

For the shower stall, instead of using a divider, why not use a shower curtain? There’s no change in the available space, but at least you won’t bump into the divider. Plus, shower curtains come in all colors and designs.



Identify your bathroom’s present functions

Think of what you do in your bath. Do you just take a shower, brush your teeth, and use the toilet? Do you shave inside the bath and change clothes? Do you put on aftershave in the bath? Do you read a newspaper or magazine while using the toilet? Once you name your room’s current functions, you’ll have a clearer idea of what to use the remaining space for.

Also, it will help you realize other things that you want to be able to do in the bath that you’re unable to at present. You might realize that you’d love to soak in a bathtub after a tiring day, or if you do take your time in using the toilet, you might like to use a soft seat for more comfort and a thick rug for you to sink your feet into.


Consider your clutter

Clutter includes toiletries like soap, shampoo, toothpaste, lotion, and shaving cream. Your toothbrush, razor, comb, towels, and toilet paper are also included. You also might keep cleaning agents in the bath. If you have lots of clutter but have limited space, then take a good look and think of storage options.

For example, instead of having a mirror over the sink and your clutter placed on top of your toilet’s tank, you may want to replace the mirror with a cabinet just deep enough to store your toiletries. Either you pick one that already has a mirror or you can improvise and use your old one. Another example is to place a cabinet under the sink for cleaning agents, and a rack over the toilet tank.

If you prefer your shampoo to be within easy reach while taking a shower, you might want to use a hanging rack on your showerhead and a towel ring near the shower curtain, but far enough that it won’t get wet.


Settle on a theme or color

After you’ve planned out what fixtures to add or change, and what storage system to use, it’s time to dig into decorating. It doesn’t have to be grand, but it does have to work with your bathroom’s space, fixtures, and accessories. Best choices for a small bathroom are light colors, minimal clutter, and sleek fixtures, cabinets, and accessories.

To make the bathroom seem bigger, use vertical stripes on the walls and a large plain mirror. If it’s a big bathroom, you can use richer tones or darker tones that suit your style.

Some more bathroom decoration ideas are the use of themes. Suggestions for themes are sports, seaside, Asian, and western. You can browse for inspiration in online stores or department stores. You might find a bathroom accessory that you like, and you can build a theme around that.


Light up your bathroom

Use adequate lighting for your bathroom’s functions. You don’t want to nick yourself while shaving because it’s a bit dark, right?

On an end note, your bathroom is also your personal space. It feels good to be able to relax in it and appreciate it as well. Just don’t forget to maintain your bathroom’s cleanliness, because no amount of bathroom decoration ideas is enough to fix a dirty bathroom.
