Your downstairs toilet may be the smallest room in your home but by no means is it the least important. We bet it sees more visitors than most of your other rooms in your home. All considered, the downstairs toilet is still often one of the most neglected spaces. Say goodbye to your dull and dingy downstairs toilet with these effective design tips.
Avoid clutter at all costs
Clutter in any space can make it unattractive and feel cramped, but it’s even more noticeable when there isn’t much space to begin with. Therefore prioritise storage and make sure everything has a home. This will not only make the space appear more attractive and organised, it will also improve the flow of the space and make it more practical. Such as access to replacement toilet rolls and toiletries for guests when they run out etc.
Open up the space
Illuminating mirrors are perfect for opening up your small downstairs toilet. The reflective surface makes the space appear bigger, lighter and brighter whilst the glow from the LED light adds to the aesthetic and provides a subtle focal point to the design
Don’t be afraid to be bold
Small spaces give you the opportunity to be creative. Bring personality and drama into the space with striking wallpaper, tiles or a strong paint choice. Ensure the theme is extended across the rest of the interior finishes such as complementary brasswear and accessories for a cohesive aesthetic.
Keeping floor space clear is a great way of creating the appearance of space, therefore consider opting for wall hung furniture. If you’re working with a really small space, take advantage of compact furniture or even combination units that accommodate easy movement in and out of the space. There are lots of compact options available that will make your space look great whilst also serving you functionally.
Comfort is everything
When designing your downstairs toilet it’s common to prioritise space saving, which is incredibly important, however don’t forget the importance of making sure the space is comfortable and inviting to guests and family members too. There is nothing less welcoming than a chilly bathroom. Consider incorporating a slim radiator or a heated towel rail into your design as a stylish way to maintain a toasty and comfortable environment throughout the winter months.
