The design of a small bathroom: the idea of ​​increasing the visual interior

Creating an interior design for a small bathroom is a very exciting experience. There are even more options than it may seem, consider the 50 best photos of bathroom renovation ideas.


Interior design bathroom with toilet

Can a house be cozy and stylish without a sparkling and inviting bathroom? Most likely not. Boring old tiles and rusting pipes do not cause the desire to enjoy a bath, but I want to quickly wash and run. Even more scary is in this room, if the bath is combined with a toilet. Therefore, it is very important for a good housewife to select the design of a small bathroom so that it is pleasant to be in it and could be proudly displayed to guests.

In the spacious bathroom you can roam and apply various design ideas and modern technologies. But also those who have a very small bathroom, also want to arrange it in a stylish and most useful way to use every corner.

A small combined bathroom is a problem for many owners of Soviet standard apartments . What is there to do? I want to live beautifully! So, we will think how to add such a bath of chic and glitter

Rearrange the toilet and bath to other places can not. This will require agreement in the BTI, and there they will not give permission. Let’s leave everything as it is, and we will work with walls, floor and ceiling, as well as consider various models of plumbing.

Tip! What materials can cover the walls and floor in the bathroom? The standard answer is tile ! But, fortunately, not only! Now there are many materials to create a gorgeous, sophisticated bathroom design.

Popular materials for the interior:

  • decorative plaster;
  • mirrors;
  • mosaic;
  • marble;
  • ceramic tile.

In our opinion, for a small space it will be very successful to use mirrors or decorative plaster . Mirrors will increase the space, this is understandable. They can be placed around the perimeter of the room. Thus, the effect of volumetric space will be obtained. Mirrors can be combined with any other material, because it is not practical to completely trim the walls with them: this will require careful daily care, otherwise splashes, smudges and stains will literally destroy all magnificence. An alternative to conventional mirrors can be frosted or corrugated glass.

How to enlarge a small bathroom with a proper ceiling

Pondering the interior of the bathroom, we can completely forget about the ceiling . It seems that no one is looking at him. But it is worth making a mistake, and it immediately catches the eye. What should not be allowed in the design of the ceiling of a small bathroom?

  • With a small height you can not coose dark colors.
  • Give up the temptation to make multi-level ceilings.

If suddenly the ceiling height is “good” (this happens in old houses), then you can beautifully beat the contrast of colors. For example, we make light “bottom and dark” top. But when the ceiling is normal, at the entrance to such a room it will seem that he is about to crush us. These are unpleasant feelings and should be avoided.

Modern interior design

Fashionable and, of course, beautiful multi-level ceilings in a small bathroom will look cumbersome.

We want to achieve at least some open space, even a visual one.

What will help us in this?

  • Use of light tones or transparent materials.
  • Bright lighting.

With this in mind, you need to choose the right options for finishing the ceiling in the bathroom. The material must withstand constant exposure to moisture, temperature extremes and be durable. It is unlikely that someone will want to annually make repairs and reflect on the next design project. Therefore, you need to focus on proven and popular ways to design the ceiling:

  • stretch ceiling ;
  • lath aluminum ceiling;
  • mirrored ceiling.

If the decoration is a bit sorted out, then you can think about the furniture.

Choosing furniture

We love this part of the apartment very much, and we want to place there some necessary things behind which it is completely inconvenient to constantly run into the room. It would simply be ideal to put a spacious bedside table in the bathroom and hang shelves .

The main requirements for furniture:

  • compactness;
  • ease;
  • strength;
  • moisture resistance.

Where to put the washing machine

We, the housewives, it is very convenient when the washing is traditionally in the bathroom.

In addition, there are narrow models of machines with a vertical load, it can be squeezed between the sink and the wall. But just not quite close, a small gap must necessarily remain for ventilation.

With the placement of a washing machine in a small bathroom, there are few options. If there is a place, then you are very lucky. If not, invent something else. At least you can donate a sink.

Without a mirror in a small bathroom, nowhere

Indeed, is it possible to do in a large bathroom without mirrors? Even if we choose a mirror finish as the design, and it doesn’t appear above the sink, we still have to hang it.

Discussing the furniture, we said that all possible cabinets would be well placed on the wall. Here they are practically equipped with mirrors. Buying one of them, we solve two questions at once.

Putting everything you want into a compact bathroom does not work. Always have to sacrifice something. If you do not put the washing machine along the wall, then there you can hang a large mirror full length.

Mirrors can be of different shapes and “work” on the basic idea of ​​design. With a pronounced marine theme, it would be good to find a mirror in the form of a fish or sea animal.

What important details should be considered when choosing a mirror?

  • Whether the mirror will be well lit (take care of the lighting).
  • Who will take care of him (maybe buy a heated model and forget about stains?)
  • How long it will last (for the bathroom there are special mirrors that are resistant to moisture, and the usual will quickly lose its appearance).

REMEMBER! A successful mirror will “save” any interior!

If the bathroom shower

The shower cabin for the house – the ingenious invention. This is what you need for a small bathroom. There are a lot of models of such cabs, angular or simple but compact ones will suit us the most. Fortunately, their mass is on sale.

The shower cabin provides the following benefits:

  • space saving;
  • saving water (when taking a shower it consumes less);
  • comfortable washing process (especially if the model has a hydromassage function);
  • modern, stylish bathroom.

Replacing the bath shower, we can find a place for a washing machine, and for some small closet. However, I want to warn fans to force everything and litter!

Even the most spacious bathroom can be so cluttered up, then it will seem like a shed. In a small room, this risk increases many times.

No need to put something in every corner. Better we put in the bathroom only the most necessary. And only then it will look more spacious, and go into it will be much nicer.

The only disadvantage of this decision is the lack of space for bathing young children. Here you can offer two ways:

  • or put a small bath on the bottom of the cabin;
  • or wait for the children to grow up.

Another siding is a bath with a shower, they are ideal for a large family, in which there are lovers of shower and bath. But putting it in a cramped room, we will not save space. Although, in general, such a combined version is very convenient.

Project with shower and bath

The decision on the feasibility of all this must be made individually. And this time you have to choose between comfort and space.

Repair ideas for residents of Khrushchev

In the apartments with such a sonorous name we designed two types of bathrooms, so in three-room apartments we have a separate bathroom with a tiny bathroom, and in one-roomand two-room apartments there is a toilet and a bathroom combined.

The tiny bathroom “treshki” destroys in the bud all attempts to dream up over its arrangement. All the tips that we gave about the design of the walls and ceiling in such a room are applicable here.

Basic moments:

  • use several spectacular mirrors;
  • make a glossy stretch ceiling with spotlights;
  • give up dark shades;
  • do not hang shelves and cabinets (one above the sink will be enough);
  • if possible, change the bath on the shower.

The successful design of such a bathroom implies maximum simplicity, the absence of unnecessary parts and heaps.

Combined bathroom in Khrushevka more spacious. Opposite the entrance door there is a toilet, a sink and a bathtub are nearby. Near the door remains free space, which is usually allocated under the washing machine.

What can be done with this prosaic situation? How to add her chic and glitter?

Option One

We change the plumbing. Choose a toilet, sink and bathroom square shape. It is desirable to find the sink with a long tabletop, rolling on the bathroom. It is possible to place all the hygiene products and other necessary stuff.

It is also advisable to hang square mirrors over the bathroom and sink. Ceiling trim aluminum rack panels. Lay the floor and walls with mosaic tiles.

Option Two

Install the toilet with a mount in the wall, select a flat sink complete with a washing machine, above them hang a large mirror. We replace the bathtub with a corner shower cabin, between it and the wall we place a narrow tall rack. We leave the wall next to the door free; there you can put only a small laundry basket.

We propose to cover the walls and ceiling with decorative plaster of pastel shades, and lay the floor with tiles of a contrasting shade.

Ideas for the design of a combined bathroom in the bathroom can be very much. Fortunately, now there are all materials for the realization of any dream.

Bathroom in a private house

Designing a bathroom in your home, you can plan in advance where to put the plumbing and furniture. There are no restrictions of an apartment building.

If the house is wooden, then both the walls and the ceiling can be sheathed with a moisture-proof wooden lath. The floor is best covered with plain tiles in the tone of wood.

Well, if there is a window in the bathroom, in a small room it increases the space perfectly. It can be originally decorated with roller or Roman blinds . This will add comfort to the bathroom, which sometimes seems to be “cold” and damp.

An important function of the window and in the possibility of airing and drying, which is especially important for wood finishing.

In a brick house, it is advisable to “ennoble” the walls of the bathroom with ceramics or stone. The ceiling in this case can be decorated with any kind of suspended ceilings: they are aesthetic, reliable and inexpensive.

A private house is good because repairs in it can be done and altered forever: the neighbors can not hear anything. However, I want to perform repairs with high quality so that all the elements of the interior serve for many years, until they get bored.

To do this, just use reliable materials and follow our advice.

WAYS TO INCREASE THE SPACE OF A SMALL BATHROOM
Ceiling Use light shades, make tension with spotlights
Walls To decorate with decorative plaster or mosaic tiles
Mirror Hang one large or several medium size
