Small bathroom layout: some tips for a design and functional space

In the small bathroom space is limited. We can not afford big furniture or too many decorative objects. It is necessary to be satisfied with a minimum of furniture and necessary objects. The bathroom is a place of personal hygiene, but still a place of relaxation. It is therefore not only functional, but also Zen atmosphere and relaxing.

The lighting is of great importance to create a pleasant atmosphere in the bathroom.

Of course, we will not choose the same lighting for the small bathroom as for the large one. Three things to consider when choosing the lighting for your bathroom, or any other room:

  • always give preference to soft lighting (except for the kitchen worktop where you need lighting a slightly stronger idea)
  • avoid bluish lighting that tires the eyes
  • favor economic and ecological lighting solutions
  • lighting can visually make space bigger than it actually is

Since the bathroom is a place that is zen, so it makes sense that we opt for a dim lighting and soft. A luminaire will be installed above the mirror. Also, we will install a fixture (suspended if you want) to the ceiling, usually above the bath or shower stall.
