For city-living in the UK, having a small bathroom is a common issue. There is nothing more frustrating than the clutter that comes with having little space. Odds are, you are probably in need of some storage ideas to keep the clutter hidden away and your bathroom looking clean and organised.
Selecting Your Bathroom Furniture
First things first, select bathroom furniture that provides storage and utilises the bathroom space well. For those of us with little space to work with, make your walls do all the work. Find a wall-hung unit that fits the space you have. Shelves, multi-purpose mirrors, and hanging cabinets are a great place to start and provide subtle storage without taking up additional space. Another great option is that of a vanity unit. They not only disguise necessary plumbing components, but host the additional bonus of storage for loose items. For slim fit bathroom furniture designed to maximise a small bathroom space, brands such as iflo provide a variety of bathroom components and furniture pieces to choose from.
Pick Up a Paint Brush
It is amazing what a coat of paint can do. A common problem with small bathrooms is the colour choice. The wrong colour can make the room feel boxed in, and even smaller than it already is. Selecting a neutral colour tone for the walls and flooring allows the room to feel infinitely larger, as it has the effect of a never-ending space. If you are unsure, you can download augmented reality apps (Dulux have a good one) which will show you what the room will look like in different colours. Another option when it comes to decorating your bathroom is that of a feature wall, so consider a brighter pop of colour or water-resistant wallpaper.
Make It Unique
Don’t forget to make the space your own. Whatever your style, clever storage and good use of space will make it work. Add a personal touch, such as a plant or piece of art, to bring some character to the room. Many art pieces also have the added advantage of playing with a person’s perception and can be used to make the room feel more spacious. The greenery of plants have a similar effect so add the odd leafy botanical to brighten up the space and add a touch of your personality.
Whether you are starting from scratch, renovating, or just looking to get rid of some clutter, these simple tips will get you started. Get organising, have a flip through some interior magazines and book your appointment at one of iflo’s showrooms to get your bathroom underway.
