Guest Post on Small Bathroom Design Inspiration

September 26, 2011

Hi, I'm Susi, a writer for Design Shuffle, a fabulous social media site that promotes interior designers and their work from around the world. Frances of 400 Square Feet was nice enough to invite me and Design Shuffle to come visit this week to guest blog about small bathroom interior designs. So I'm sharing tips and tricks on how to turn these closet size rooms into well designed jewel boxes. I hope you enjoy these small but stylish bathrooms.

  Storage Shelf Design

 Storage is key in a small bathroom. Building in storage shelves between studs or creating shelves around the tub adds more storage to a tiny footprint.

  Dark Bathroom Design

 Dark walls, like really dark navy or black, will recede and make a small bathroom feel larger. White matted artwork and gold accents stand out more against the dark walls.

  Tiled Bathroom Design

 A trick to make a small bathroom feel bigger is to carry the shower tile along the walls. This gets rid of the visual break between shower and the rest of the room. Glass enclosures and shower doors help too.

  Bathroom Design

Along with patterned wallpaper, add some big design statements, like an ornate mirror or chandelier, to make small bathroom designs feel like a jewel boxes instead of closets.

  Wallpaper Bathroom Design

 Tiny bathrooms and powder rooms are perfect places to go bold with a wallpaper or paint color. Hang artwork to add interest.

 Striped Bathroom Design

 Carry color onto the ceiling. Adding stripes to the ceiling draw the eye to the vertical space of a small room. Bold vertical stripes can work in a small space.

  Bathroom Design

 A vanity with an open base feels visually lighter in a tight space. Adding mirrors opens up the room and reflects light. Both are clever bathroom design ideas.

  Pattern Bathroom Design

 If wallpaper seems like too much of a commitment or you are a renter, add bold pattern and color in a stylish shower curtain. Love this one!

I'm a fan of the white bathroom design. I've always wanted a peaceful ambiance especially when I'm in the tub. cornerstone apartments colonie ny

How beautiful, these bathrooms all look lovely. A good way to add a bit of style to a small bathroom is to buy some taps which will stand out, they can make a brilliant addition to the design of the room.

An all white bathroom is not that bad at all just as long as you know how to maintain it.
