A too-small bathroom can lead to daily frustrations. Constantly struggling to complete your daily tasks like applying makeup or shaving can leave you in a foul mood to start the day. No one wants to spend their private time feeling cramped in a small space.

Luckily, these problems have solutions. The way to save your small bathroom is to think creatively about your space and storage needs. If you're done with your crowded bathroom, here are some ideas to get you started on your renovation plans.

Thoughts on the toilet

Space-saving ideas include wall-mounted or one-piece toilet. Both free up floor space, and the one piece design has a lower profile, which makes the room feel less cluttered.

You can also switch up the type of toilet bowl you have. Elongated bowls protrude several centimetres further from the wall than round bowls. If the bathroom door opens into the bathroom, the shape of the toilet bowl can make all the difference.

Rethink your basin

A small basin is also a good idea for a small bathroom. Opting for a narrow basin with a rectangular bowl can save lots of space. If you never fill the basin all the way up, do you need one so large?

If you don't need much counter space around your basin, a pedestal basin is another excellent option. Taller, mixer tap can make your basin look less crowded.

Custom cabinets for custom storage

Have you ever bought a cabinet for your bathroom, only to find it doesn't fit or takes up more room than you thought? Custom built cabinetry solves this problem. A custom-built cabinet will fit into the tight corners of your space and use up every centimetre.

Built-in cabinets are another option. With built-ins, you free up limited floor space and create new storage areas. Using the space in your walls pairs especially well with other space-saving ideas like a pedestal basin.

Switch up your shower

When renovating the bathroom, many people forget about their tub or shower. However, as the largest fixture in the bathroom, a change in that area can make the biggest difference. If your bathroom has a tub, switching to a shower can free up space for cabinetry or shelving.

If you already have a shower, there are still ways to make it better fit your bathroom. Sliding doors take up less room than doors that open into the bathroom. Clear glass doors can open up the area visually, making the whole bathroom seem deeper and larger.

If you need a lot of space, or you're especially daring, consider a wet bathroom. In a wet bathroom, the toilet, basin, and shower occupy the same space. This allows you the most function per square meter.

Shelves in unexpected places

When you're thinking storage, you're thinking about shelves. Store-bought shelves come in standard lengths and depths that don't work for every bathroom.

Custom and creative shelving can increase the amount of storage space available to you. In the right place, even a small shelf can be enough to hold a few daily necessities. Shelves can also help you use vertical space, such as the space over the door.

You can also use shelves in your shower. If you're renovating your shower, ask about the installing shelves in the shower itself.

If these ideas sound great, or have got you thinking about what you need for your bathroom renovation, then it's time to take action.
