Creating Space in Small Bathrooms!

Our Bathroom is one of the most sacred and yet under designed rooms in our homes. Wouldn't you just love to have a nice place to wash your face, grab your favorite warm towels and just relax in the tub without all the clutter? I have remodeled hundreds of bathrooms in my career, but the Rustic is my favorite, so today I am going to show you Rustic Bathrooms that Inspire Change! But Most of all, showing you how to pull this off in the smallest of bathrooms. Yes, You will want to get started on your projects yesterday once you see some of these amazing ideas!

Inspiration is easy, but finding what fits in your space and what inspires you is another story. For some, the Antler Vanity Lights would be a bit to much, but for others it is that special touch that makes the room pop. For me, I love Custom Made Green Sink and the Copper Bathtub, I mean how unique is that! Even the Faucet is a Rustic Charming Accent.

The Round Mirror In a Rustic Western Themed Frame is a great touch to this Amazing Rustic Western Bathroom. Now Let's talk about the Accent Rug and those Amazing Copper Floor Candle Holders! Choosing the Right Accents can make a room go from chaotic to calm in the matter of moments. Make sure they are subtle pops, nothing to over powering or the focus will be on the wrong things.

Smaller Bathrooms do Not have to be Such a Challenge!

Most of us do NOT have Luxury Bathrooms to remodel. We have small spaces that can easily get cluttered. But there are so many ways to make that untrue, by being creative with how we store things. Small Bathrooms have their charm, but they do tend to stay cluttered and pretty much an eye sore. Change Your Sink Out to a Top Mounted Bowl Sink and the Vanity Base Cabinet into something with Drawers as well.

Your sink is another focal point of the room, so if your going to showcase your Custom Sink, Keep the mirror a simple chunky wooden framed mirror and coordinate the Vanity lighting over the mirror to match the Raised Sink and the Unique Waterfall Faucet.

Grab Yourself Some Shelving!

The Shelving in your bathroom can be a place that actually stores so much of your personal items in a way that noone even notices. Like Grabbing a black wire basket and filling it with your toilet paper. Then Layered a Nice Thick Succulent with a few smaller tealights, hides the fact that it is even toilet paper at all there. Add in a few designer Turkish Towels to give it that perfect depth and your all set with your first shelf.

Then You can take a few major essentials like your cotton balls, QTips and hide them in place site with a nice Rustic Display Tray. Add In your favorite Perfumes that match the decor and your favorite Beauty Products, then place a Large sweet succulent in front of them, to set off the decor factors.

How to utilize the Blank Wall - Wall Hooks

Hooks in the Bathroom can be a classy way to Hang your towels and yet let them dry without draping over the shower rod. In My Bathroom, I have 6 individual Wall Hooks as shown below....

The First one On the left I have a Turkish blue striped towel hanging from. The 2nd one I have a Beige Cotton Mesh Bag filled with all of my bathrooms toilet paper! The Next is hanging a Beige Turkish Beach Towel with a Body Brush Laying on top of that. The Last Two are layered with Subtle Colored Turkish towels to give it some depth.

Hung Evenly Over The Hooks I have 3 Framed 8x10 Matted Print Art that really shows off he rustic nature of the bathroom. Decorating to display the things we use is a genius way to get things off the floor and out of crowded cabinets and still have the room look amazing.

Now What to do with those Dirty Clothes!

Throwing Clothing on the floor is a norm, but how do you declutter a room, when it is so easy to just toss things in a corner? Personally, I use Baskets. I have two in the corner of my bathroom, One is super Huge and that is where I hide my Giant Makeup Case and hair Accessories, while it is draped with a Turkish Towel and a dried lavender flower bouquet. The smaller one in front is filled with the dirty clothes, I just make sure one towel drapes over the corner to make it look a tad neater.

Accents to make the Room Complete!

The Shower Curtain (if Needed) Can make or Break the Room Design, Just like a Floor Rug can! Too much or too little will make the whole thing fall apart. The Best Type of Shower Curtain is one that is more Simple yet well made.

Stick with a Curtain that is a Solid Color or two at the most. You want it to show off the fabric and textures instead of the designs.

These subtle details will be noticed and enjoyed a lot more then a loud noisy statement, that is for sure. The Best ones will show off your personality and still match the theme of your bathroom. Like all the turkish towels I have in mine. This Shower Curtain would just do lovely matching with those.

Just Remember, Your Shower Curtain is almost like the Wedding Cake, it is the focal point of your bathroom, so be careful in what you choose as it can make or break that room.

I could show you so many designs that would change the look of the room, just by changing out the curtain. Imagine the look above, then put this Curtain on it instead! It is a different bathroom all together now, don't you agree?

The Rug Choice should be as subtle as the shower choice. The best advice I will give for bathroom rugs is to keep it simple. Pick your main color and vintage it out. Think outside the box, a rug doesn't have to be a "Bathroom Rug" Just have to make sure it dries out is the key. Pull them up and dry if they get wet.

The Tiny Details

When designing, just remember less is more! This does not mean we have to have less, it means we should See less. Find a way to display and hide in plain sight is the classiest way to pull off any small space bathroom look.

Adding in Plants of all sizes from Large Floor ones to smaller succulents and mixed with Tapers and Pillar candles will make just about anything blend into the background, as the focus is now on the nature. I hope this has brought you inspiration for change in your bathroom. Subscribe and follow for more inspirational ideas. xoxo Haley
