Indeed true that the business in bathroom is plain necessity, it brings in great joy to indulge in a hot tub bath for hours if the atmosphere is right.

4 Handy tips to uplift your bathroom interiors by giving it a makeover under budget- 


1. Move it and get some floor space-

Huge vanity in bathroom looks stunning but can consume a lot of space. Vanities are a good option for big bathrooms with enough space for mobility.  However, the same good-looking vanity can become cumbersome in small bathrooms occupying most of the space. 

You can optimize floor space in small bathrooms by replacing vanity with modern sleek pedestal sink. This helps you save huge on your budget as well. Or the other way is to have floating vanity that still keeps the floor clear while retaining the look of sophistication. 

Petite wall mounted toilet is another way to add more room in your bathroom. Further if you want wet and dry area to be separate then a shower curtain should suffice. This not only makes it easy to keep it open when not in use but also fits in budget. Having a closed shower room can make your small bathroom too congested. 

2. Create storage space tactfully-

Storage in bathroom is so much more important than just having it done beautifully. You might not have all the space in the world to consider a closet inside the bathroom but having a few selves shouldn’t be so difficult. Sometimes it seems like it’s just not going to work and adding shelves would steal the look. However, with little planning and smart execution you solve the problem just-like-that.

Have a small mirror above the sink and install a shelf below it so that you can accommodate all your daily essentials. The space above your toilet is the most neglected area, utilize it and use it for storage with a chick cabinet or a couple of shelves. You can also squeeze in more storage space by mounting a shelf above the door or double the mirror so that you can hide away stuff behind it with a recessed cabinet or you could even have a full-length mirror that blends in with the style of your bathroom. 

3. Make it feel roomy –

Is your bath smaller and look like a cluttered cage? Here are few things you can do to make it feel bigger and better.

Go for a single tone when it comes to colour. The theory being that lighter is better, uniform color from ceiling to wall to floor makes it feel bigger. Contrast in color can chop off the space making it visually look smaller. Choose uniform colour for flooring, tiles on the wall, sink, bathtub, etc. But you can still play with colours by highlighting the hues of shelves or accessories. 

Make use of larger tiles on the floor as well as on the wall. The smaller the tiles the more the grout lines which tend to break the space and add bulkiness.  Get in some movement with pattern tiles on the floor such as herringbone pattern, which attracts the beholder to the width making it feel wider.

Bigger mirrors give it a more roomy feeling and also make your bathroom grander. You could also use mirrors or glass on top of wall cabinet to give it an illusion of depth rather than bringing it on the face with woody opaque cabinet doors.  Use clear shower curtains or clear glass to separate wet and dry area so that they don’t cut the space visually. 

4. The art and science of lighting your bathroom interiors-

Yes privacy is key in bathroom but don’t let your fear (of being seen in the state) creep in so much that you end up covering your window with dark or shady blinds. Let the light in by covering it with sheer curtains or frosted window glasses. Make use of mirrors to reflect the lights so that your bathroom makes the most from natural sunlight during the day.

When it comes to lighting your bathroom, you might want to use at least 2 types of lights- task lightand ambient light. Task lighting, like the one beside the vanity mirror or top of it helps to see yourself better. When you use the mirror to shave or for other purposes it gives a clearer reflection.You can add ambient light in the center of the bathroom required to illuminate the entire area.  Accent light and decorative light areluxurious options depending on the size of the bathroom, your bathroom décor as well as your budget. 

Conclusion-


Smart design and styling can rock even the smallest of bathrooms all under budget. You can transform your bathroom into a space that grows visually and adhere to functionality with few tricks like the ones mentioned above. A newly done bathroom is just so much more than increasing resale value. It’s a place you want to be in, relax and bath in sophisticationwithout making you claustrophobic.
