Stack floating shelves to add storage in a fashionable way. Colorful storage ladders showcase personality and are a great place to store containers. Sink skirts add flair and hide cleaning products. Wooden crates can be stacked, drilled into the wall or placed on the ground for accessible storage. Functionality is key for a small bathroom. Small rooms can easily lead to unwanted clutter, so make sure you're adding only design elements that are functional. Don't add knick-knacks or objects that don't serve a purpose. Store cotton balls and swabs in glass jars on floating shelves. Install a hamper under the sink. Minimize counter space by storing (rather than displaying) personal products. Add stackable baskets underneath cabinets and above washer/dryer units.
Which colour to use in my bathroom? Before making irrational decisions with towels and floor mats, you should be aware of what colours you want for the larger elements in your bathroom. Don't forget that the colour you choose will affect the overall ambience and feeling in the space. White is the go-to colour for most homeowners as it can be combined with other colours to create different effects. Combined with blue, it will house an adventurous underwater flair, whereas if combined with black, it can create a dramatic and romantic appeal. Also, you must take note of the amount, or lack thereof, of natural light that penetrates the space, as in the end, this will decide the colour scheme of your bathroom. As a general rule of thumb, dark or bright colours should not be used in small bathrooms, with the exception of small accessories.
If you're not sure you can afford an entirely new bathroom, there are ways to give your existing one a fresh new look on a budget and without replacing the sanitary ware (the toilet, bath, sink and shower). First, you'll need to do a thorough clean. If the grouting is mouldy, try using a specialist cleaning product, available from supermarkets and DIY stores. If that doesn't work, buy an anti-mould grout-reviving pen, which you can get in black or white depending on the colour of your grouting. If you choose to redo the grouting altogether, use a sealer that will help prevent staining and mould growth in the future. To help prevent the mould coming back, try to leave the bathroom window open after showering or, if there isn't a window, install an extractor fan and leave the door open when you leave the room. If you are lucky enough to have a cast-iron bath but the ceramic covering has started to crack, consider buying a resurfacing kit or hiring someone to do a professional job for you, rather than replacing it. When you come to sell your home, buyers tend to rate period features.
