Generally, never the largest room in the house, the bathroom requires a series of tricks to meet all the demands – such as storing products, implementing mirrors and sanitizing areas – that fit into the space.
But, even with its reduced square footage, the space can be fully utilized with creative and optimization solutions, ranging from the use of cabinets to the choice of certain coverings, which can bring a feeling of spaciousness to small spaces.
“Working with the organization in a personalized way is ideal for ensuring a practical environment on a daily basis,” says the architect Leticia Nannetti. “Tailor-made items will ensure better use of spaces without hindering circulation and operation”, he adds.
Niches and shelves
Between them, Furniture that takes advantage of vertical spaces, such as niches and shelves, is a good bet for supporting hygiene and beauty items and products without giving the environment a feeling of obstruction.. By occupying the gap above the toilet or higher points in the room, this option also makes it possible to make use of every free corner of the room.
“Another solution is to invest not just in a mirror, but in a closet with mirrored doors, which allows you to store everything.,” adds the architect Carina Dal Fabbro. The reflection of these furniture also refers to the feeling of depth and a larger space, in addition to allowing organization inside through boxes and baskets, which can hold toothpaste, medicine, makeup and other items.
Furthermore, accessories such as hangers behind the door and organizing boxes – ideally embedded in the joinery – are a resource proposed by the architect, along with the use of furniture with little depth.
Less is more
“However, avoid excess and accumulation of items: decorate only with items that are essential and indispensable for the functioning of the space,” recommends Leticia. Mixing materials and colors is also not recommended, as the break in tones and textures gives the feeling that the space is even smaller.
Invest in soft colors and the right boxing
As for coatings, Investing in light colors is a precaution that can also optimize space. Carina reinforces: “The less information and prints, the larger the room will appear. Therefore, give preference to using the same covering on the floor and walls, providing unity.”
If possible, Choosing a sliding box instead of an open one also helps to make the most of the space.
