Tips to improve the design of small bathroom:

Use light colors in the tiles or ceramics, even in the areas where the paint goes as the ceiling. This is an old trick but it always works to give amplitude to space and more, when it comes to areas as small as the bathroom.

If you put items such as the sink, toilet, and shower along with a wall you can save some money in sanitary ware.

Do you want a well-lit bathroom? Although now there is a tendency to make larger windows, in small bathrooms the most recommended to use a small one. This will allow you to place more elements inside the wall. The lighting can be solved with spotlights or fluorescent (daylight) with more power watts.

If your bathroom is too small, do not try to buy large toilets, even though you liked them a lot, it is better to sacrifice this element for functionality.

Preferably choose two colors in ceramics or have gradients in shades of a single color, the design of the small bathroom forces to be also minimalist.

An ideal place to store your towels and other bathroom products are under the sink. In the photos that we publish below, we show you different designs.
