Today, there are a huge number of options for unique small bathroom interior designs, each of which has its own advantages and disadvantages. It's no secret that when moving into a new home, each person immediately has a large number of questions, from the choice of the color of the tiles in the bathroom to the number of lighting sources?
There are doubts about which bath to choose, or maybe it is better to install a shower cabin?
And these are just some of the questions that are of concern at the first stages. Along the way, many other problems always arise, each of which can always be easily dealt with in a professional manner, and an optimal solution can always be found.
There are some principles for building a design project according to certain criteria. The first thing to consider when creating a bathroom design is functionality. As a rule, a small toilet is just in a small apartment, therefore, space is an important factor. And it often becomes very difficult to find the right proportions and variations to accommodate everything at the same time.
When creating a design for a small bathroom in the photo, for an example, which can be viewed below, it is difficult to place both a washing machine, a ceramic sink and an even larger 2-meter bath. Therefore, you have to sacrifice something. For example, instead of a large ceramic bathtub, install a shower stall or a screen, which will not only equip the room with the necessary element, but also save significant space for installing something else.
When composing a composition from the necessary components of a small bathroom, a photo of which is also available in this article, it is necessary to take into account their correct distribution. If the toilet, sink and bath are placed incorrectly, then it will be quite difficult to call comfortable washing and even just being in the toilet.
Therefore, it is necessary to seriously approach the solution of the issue and take into account all possible little things and nuances when creating a design for a small bath.
We divide the space of the bathroom correctly
So, with a bathroom of 2.5 to 3 m², what can be placed?
Yes, almost anything, if you allocate space rationally. In such a room, you can conveniently place a bathroom of standard dimensions 1.5 m long, a small sink and even a washing machine, if you are even designing a small bathroom in a Khrushchev. Everything becomes compact and at the same time harmonizes well enough.
It is important to remember that placing household appliances directly near water sources will become very dangerous. Therefore, it is better to install such a unit not in the bathroom, but in the kitchen. Where there is no likelihood of her naturally wet.
But the interior of a small bathroom is not always an eyesore, because often creative ideas are not enough for large areas. Truly unique and inimitable designs usually fit in just a few square meters, ideally combining everything you need for a comfortable life.
Stages of design formation
Here are several stages of design formation in a small bathroom:
- At the first stage, it is necessary to make small sketches on paper or even simulate an approximate interior of a small bathroom, which is full of a virtual network, or using a PC. Today there are a lot of means and opportunities to do this. A well-thought-out interior always favors and delivers only positive emotions.
- The next stage is the moment of lighting. It is important to correctly distribute the light sources so as not to create conditions for the operating room and not to shade the space. The designer bathroom is small in size, the photo is attached, along with amenities and comfort, it is fraught with some danger. If the floor gets too wet, the tiles become slippery, which can adversely affect the health of residents. And sufficient and at the same time moderate light will allow you to turn your attention to a spot of water in time and remove or step over it. In addition, sufficient lighting will allow you to see well the flaws on your body in order to carry out cosmetic care for it. But this is not the most important thing.
Light is the main thing in design
Light sources can be placed both in the ceiling and on the walls. It depends on the conceived design of a small bathroom, but the main thing is that they are closed and airtight. Many people use conventional spotlights, which can cause accidents. As a rule, lighting is planned even at the stages of creating a design for combined bathrooms, when the bathroom has only bare walls without any decoration and, of course, there is no ceiling yet. In any case, there should be good ventilation in the toilet and, at the same time, it is best to use an exhaust type so that the steam accumulated during washing quickly leaves the room.
When choosing light sources, the dimensions of the room must be taken into account. In a small designer combined bathroom of several square meters, one or two are usually enough with light scattering in different directions.
There are many bathroom designs available today, which can be either light or dark. Therefore, the luminaires must be of the same color. If the owner of the restroom has a preference for black colors and mirrors, then the lamps should be slightly hidden in the blackness of the ceiling, highlighting their presence with a small edging of different color. But if the priority is given to dark shades, then the mirror components will just perfectly fit into the design. Tiles on the walls, panels on the ceiling - everything will fit perfectly, even in a small designer bathroom.
Of course, people give more preference to light colors. In terms of eye comfort, this is the best option. Because the human eye always perceives the surrounding objects better in soft light lighting. But also, you should not make the interior design of the bathtub and bathroom in a whitish glare tone. If there is any craving for whiteness, then it is better to alternate it with black tones or dark tones of a different color. It can be like zigzags, checkerboard tiles, individual elements. White harmonizes well with all other shades, which cannot be said about other colors.
Wall and ceiling interior design ideas
The design of every new bathroom in a small apartment is always unique and inimitable, because there are no rooms with the same dimensions. There are always some deviations, which will lead to a shift in the pattern on the walls when laying tiles, and placing accessories and other things, especially if this is a small designer bathroom.
The number of lamps and their power directly depends on the selected tile color, therefore, at this stage, the first tile selection is also made. When giving preference to dark tones, the number of light sources, respectively, should be increased. With lighter colors, they can be used less, because the dark absorbs, and all the light reflects and sometimes even intensifies the light intensity.
After creating a rough sketch of the interior design of a small bath, lighting markup, the moment comes to choose tiles for the walls and floor. Ceiling design options are also selected. Undoubtedly, the tiles should be used in two tones or three colors. These can be either separate sketches in the form of paintings (drawn images on tiles), or skirting boards around the perimeter of the entire room at eye level. It is important to emphasize the zest in the design when laying tiles.
When decorating the ceiling, you can also consider many options:
- glass matte;
- mirror glossy;
- colored to match the walls and ceiling. and
But besides color, the material from which the ceiling is made plays an important role. It can be PVC plastic, glass, mirror tiles or metal panels. Moreover, the latter can also be mirrored, ideally combining practicality, reliability and extraordinary style.
Tile laying options
There are many bathroom tile interior designs today. Among such a variety, you can always choose the most suitable one. Laying of tiles can be carried out both in a checkerboard pattern, and with a shift, for example, as with brickwork. On the floor in a small room, it is better to lay tiles with a diagonal method. There are many small bathroom interior designs that use this method. The tile, of course, must be strictly regular in shape - square, rectangle, with or without inserts. The main thing is that the tile on the floor is not slippery, that is, it has a matte or embossed surface.
Choice of accessories to create a unique design
So the stage has come for the selection of accessories to create a unique interior in a very small bathroom. This is one of the most difficult steps in building a unique and comfortable design. A large room is a large bath, a small one is small. All clear. But how to do it most harmoniously.
Many people in the bathroom require a sink. If the area is not enough, then you can always resort to combination. The sink can be elegantly positioned above the bathtub itself in a narrowed area. Yes, for such a design in a small bathroom, you will have to run and look for another bathtub, but still. With no more space, this is the best option.
You can also combine the bathroom with a sink, install a mixer above it.
But this is not always convenient, because with frequent use of an imaginary sink, the bath will have to be washed more often from streaks and stains of soap, toothpaste or something else. And what to do if the mixer breaks down in the kitchen and there is no way to wash the dishes. Then it will have to be done in the bathroom, which is not always acceptable and convenient.
But having resorted to combining the functions of a bath and a sink, it becomes a little more spacious in a small room and in the place where the sink would be mounted, you can safely install a washing machine or even a toilet, if this was provided for by the project. But if you nevertheless decide to combine functions and install appliances in a small bathroom, then be sure to provide a protective fence or at least hard curtains. Oilcloth and other types of curtains will not become alternatives, because they quickly get dirty and lose their bright and rich color.
Small square is not a vice
Nothing increases space like optical illusion. Large mirrors on the walls in front of the sink double the area of the room, creating a sense of freedom.
Mirrors can be placed not only on the walls, but also on the ceiling, which makes it possible to increase the space also in height. If you make a photo ceiling in a small bathroom with an image of a bright sky with clouds, then even insufficient lighting will allow you to get the desired result.
A marble bathroom and gilded faucets are probably every owner's dream. Such accessories will not only be durable, based on both cost and brands, but, undoubtedly, will also decorate the restroom.
But you can't count on marble in a small room. Today companies have learned to make real works of art from acrylic. Moreover, they can be equipped with all sorts of attributes, such as massagers and everything else. The multitude of forms and options will never leave customers without what they want.
For those who prefer compactness, the interior of a small bathroom without a bathtub would be an excellent option. Instead, you can install a shower stall. There are also countless designs on the market today.
