Small floor plan in the bathroom

If you have a bathroom with very little space, you are familiar with the problem. The bathroom should really be a place of retreat and relaxation, but the floor plan is small, storage space is at a premium, and the design possibilities are limited. So how can you transform a small bathroom with little square footage into a genuine dream bathroom? That’s where a carefully thought-out room design comes in.

Various surveys and studies show that the bathroom is a place where people want to enjoy some peace and quiet and just relax. But if a room is average-sized, there’s not much space left for a real oasis of well-being. If there is space available for decoration or furniture in a bathroom, in addition to a toilet, a sink, and a shower or bathtub – things start to get tight.

And things get even more difficult if there are roof pitches to be taken into consideration. But there are ways of upgrading a small bathroom – even on a small budget, and even if your mini bathroom does not come close to the dimensions and floor plan of a modern bathroom from a glossy magazine.

Little space in the bathroom: proper planning and furnishing

Apps and planning tools can help you find the perfect design for your bathroom. A good idea can make a small room appear more spacious and cosy.

To get as much as you can out of a small bathroom floor plan, the trick is to reduce the solely functional elements to a minimum. For example, it helps to conceal things such as the toilet tank behind the wall. It is also a good idea to opt for a suitable, space-saving sink cabinet. This can solve two problems at the same time: you no longer see the tank, and the furniture provides additional storage space under the sink.

Another possibility is to use half or room-height installation walls. These walls conceal the plumbing hardware. This can increase the comfort factor in a small bathroom.

Seven design tips for small bathrooms

  • Using space-saving ceramic fixtures with slim dimensions is a good idea in a bathroom with a small floor plan. The better the furniture is coordinated with the appliances, the calmer and more harmonious the room appears.
  • Tidiness creates space, which is why bathroom furniture with clever storage space is a good solution for a small floor plan. Sink cabinets with drawers or mirror cabinets with storage space are particularly useful in such cases.
  • Large tiles are the perfect choice in a small bathroom as there are fewer joints. The wall structure appears calmer in a small room and the bathroom thus less cramped.
  • It’s well worth paying attention to the right lighting in the bathroom. With optimum lighting conditions, even bathrooms without windows can appear larger, warmer, and more inviting.
  • Light and warm colors make more out of a small bathroom. In combination with the right lighting, the room will appear larger.
  • Free areas make more space and make the room appear larger. This is why wall-hung fixtures and furniture are suitable for bathrooms with a small floor plan. A wall-hung toilet not only makes a room appear more airy and spacious, but also makes it easier to clean.
  • Natural materials such as stone and wood are highly recommended in a small bathroom. They help make the room appealing and cozy.
