Small rooms with cramped spaces can be a colossal challenge when trying to figure out how to integrate everything you need while, at the same time, not overlooking what you want (the little design touches that elevate your style).
We recently did a small space remodel for Angela Elias, Content Director for Popsugar Living. She and her husband were looking for a much-needed update for their garden apartment bathroom. With full creative license to virtually transform the space, we made a list of the design tricks we used to optimize space, storage and style.
So, if you face a similar design challenge with your small space, consider these four resourceful strategies for getting the look you want. We firmly believe that, though a room may be small, it shouldn’t be overlooked for its potential to be a gorgeously stylish space on par with the rest of your home.
1. Have a storage strategy
Storage needs are especially critical in a small bathroom. With a pedestal sink or vanity cabinets on the smaller side, look to shelving to house your essentials and showcase decorative objects that add a designers’ touch. Coated canvas and woven baskets are indispensible for stowing linens and toiletries out of sight.
