Tips for making the most of your small bathroom
If you have a small bathroom, listen up! A tiny bathroom, mini bathroom or a narrow bathroom can be a real challenge, especially if it's squeezing in an entire family every morning. But even if you have more than one, when designing a small second bathroom it's important to fully understand your options – and make the most of your space. In general, there are two ways to get inspiration for a small bathroom – the organisational-focused way and the creative way. We recommend you follow both.
Danish Design is fundamentally kind to small bathrooms
We often get asked, where do I find bathroom furniture in small sizes?
The organisational route - to free space
Although you can find mini shelves, mini sinks and mini closets, the trick to intelligent organisation is often an even better solution. Why not organise your bathroom needs around one single piece of bathroom furniture - the perfect bathroom cabinet? Keep all your bathroom items and gadgets in a spacious drawer - right where you need them. See our bathroom cabinets here.
An integrated sink inspires order
When a wall-mounted cabinet contains an integrated sink, you will feel like you've got plenty of space - even in your small bathroom. And because the cabinet top is all sink, you are naturally inspired to not leave items all over it. See our selection of integrated sinks here.
What are the best visual tricks for small bathrooms?
There are a few principles you should know; feel free to choose creatively between them - or try them all.
A small bathroom grows in all white...
This optical illusion also works with other bright colours – like grey. And sorry, we do not sell paint, but if we did, it would be in many nuances of white and grey because it pairs so perfectly with our Danish designs.
...and with mirrors
Mainly because the eye perceives a mirror as an opening to another room. So, a bigger mirror is better than a small one, but be sure it's placed in the right position. Our showroom consultants can guide you - and you can see our mirror selection here.
...and with great lighting
Great lighting doesn't necessarily mean excessively bright lighting. Especially in a small bath in white nuances, intelligent lighting solutions can do wonders when natural light is not enough. Ask our showroom consultants to guide you - check out our bathroom lighting here.
Is there a special kind of inspiration for small bathrooms?
Yes - and no.
In reality, the key principle in a small bathroom is to go out of your way to please the eye. In a monotone bathroom, you'll obsess over the confined space.
Your small bathroom begs for your creativity and a personal touch. Of course, we can't advise on that, but many might let loose and throw in a bit of everything. But, in the small bathroom, often a focused design with limited decorative elements works better.
Your personal style has time to shine in a small space - especially if you are selective about what you leave lying around.
3 inspiration tips for your tiny bathroom.
The smaller the room, the bigger role the details have. Here are some of our ideas
Even the simplest bathroom items, like toilet brushes, come in versions suitable for wall mounting. Anything that can free floor space is a win. And though you may not use that saved space for anything else, free space is an essential visual effect in a small bathroom.
