When you have little space to design in, a powder room’s pipe work may have to be on show. Boxing it in, to hide it, can take up valuable floor space. In such situations make a virtue of the necessity and accentuate what you would normally prefer to hide, like down pipes and waste pipes. Select brushed stainless steel faucet fixings and a towel rail that matches your basin’s waste pipe. Why not extend the idea and use metalwork for your basin, too? Chrome works well as an alternative to stainless steel. If your powder room is located under a stairwell it can be even more pushed for space than elsewhere. Don’t be put off a clear design ethos just because the ceiling may slope or because the room has an awkward corner to negotiate. Site the toilet at the place where headroom is most restricted. Keep the color scheme light in tone and hang a large mirror to give the feeling of more space. Another good tip it to install a hand wash basin that sits in a corner, so guests don’t have to squeeze past it.
Remember when shower curtains weren’t fashionable and they only came in a few colors and styles? What was once associated with college dorms and small apartments have now become fashionable and attractive. Depending on your bathroom decor a ruffled fabric will work nicely with your romantic-inspired bathroom or a high contrast colored variety will match the rest of your sleek and modern bathroom nicely. Shower curtains can be pulled back to add visual space to your bathroom interiors and pep up you interiors styling.
Having a bathtub in your small bathroom means taking up more space but if your tub is such that comes with empty surrounding areas by both sides, then it can ultimately serve as storage for most of your toiletries. Even washed and dried towels can be folded and kept in the spaces beside the bathtub. There are also customized designs that come with recessed handles by the sides of the tub which if pulled down, exhibits out-of-sight chrome baskets where you can keep a good number of your toiletries, bath supplies and other items needed in the bathroom. Have it at the back of your mind as you remodel your bathroom that the more storage ideas you are able to create from the fixtures in your bathroom, including sinks and bathtubs, the more convenient your bathroom will be. Apart from being functional to the core, these designs are also aesthetically pleasing and will help you enjoy you bathroom that much more!
Most powder rooms will be short on space and have enough room for a toilet and wash hand basin only. Toilets don’t vary very much but by introducing a non-standard basin into your room’s design you can set the tone for the rest of the decor. If you find the right hand basin, that suits your tastes, it will be a good starting point for the rest of the design. White porcelain hand basins are perfectly fine, but they are ubiquitous. Consider another material instead. Wood, plastics and brushed metal are all very good alternatives. And if you decide that you want to stick to the classic porcelain basin, why not go for a more unusual shape to make it a bit more of a feature?
