According to a recent study, the average person spends about a year and a half of their life in the bathroom. It is therefore a bit surprising that, when it comes to decoration, this all-important room is often overlooked. The majority of people choose simple and practical solutions, disregarding the myriad of unique and imaginative options available. This needn’t be the case, however! With a little bit of creativity you can transform this humble corner of your home into a calming, refreshing and beautiful space. The most important thing of all is ensuring that your bathroom is warm, bright and has proper ventilation. A dark, cold and cramped-place won’t do – it’s not only uncomfortable and depressing to look at, but will also have a negative effect on your health in the long run. Even if your washroom is very small, there are ways to make it look less confined. For example, opt for lightly colored walls or bright tiles, add a large mirror, and choose several different light sources to create a calming ambience. Be careful not to use very bright lamps though – these can be very harsh to your eyes during nightly toilet trips. If you are looking for some small bathroom ideas for your home, take a look at our selection. We have 40 amazing suggestions, ranging from more traditional options to truly unusual solutions. Our advice is – don’t be afraid to go off the beaten track and experiment.
