Classic Small Bathroom Decorating Ideas

small bathrooms decorating ideas , Whether your home is small and so the bathrooms are small, or if its just simply one of the extra baths or half bathroom in the house that are on the small size, almost every homeowner needs to deal with the task of decorating a small bathroom. But in addition to simply decorating the room, you often need to integrate some additional storage for bathroom linens or to accommodate the needs of guests using the room.

Storage Needs in a Small Bathroom

One of the extra challenges of a small bathroom is finding the storage space in these small quarters. Often in order to open up the room, there is not even storage under the vanity, instead the builder opted for a simple pedestal sink with no place to store anything.

Two solutions present themselves for storage. One is to use a simple tower storage closet for linens. These tall narrow storage racks can be found as simple open racks, or they are offered as beautiful wooden cabinets, becoming a featured part of the room decor. There are also corner versions of these tall cabinets, which occupy very little of the floor space as well.

The other space that is often unused in a small bathroom is the over the toilet area. While some bathrooms have a closet built in, most half baths don’t come with storage there. This is an ideal space, since it will take up almost no usable floor space to use this. There are a wide variety of over the toilet cabinets. Many are wall mounted, but these can be a major project to install if you are installing cabinets.

Sometimes we are just looking for something simple, like an open rack, and a simple chrome or metal finish is the ideal solution. But you can find some fine pieces of furniture that take advantage of this space, and are designed to stand over the toilet, giving you true shelf space while basically unobtrusively straddling the toilet. You can find them in white or other colors to match the fixtures, or fine wooden finishes to be a featured piece in the room.
