The use of wood in small and beautiful bathrooms is not so conventional. However, it is able to leave these wonderful environments with a simple and cozy air.

Using wood as a sink, supporting a white tub, or using cabinets made of hard-wearing material are just examples of what can be done to rock.

Don’t forget that the bathroom accumulates moisture, so the wood must be treated with varnishes and sealers to ensure that it doesn’t spoil in a short time.

Decorating small bathrooms  with paintings and decorative items is allowed, provided it is limited so as not to create visual pollution and a feeling of disorganization. Opt for small frames, but that emphasize the chosen theme.

Also keep personal hygiene items organized, preferably stored in closed cabinets to improve the feeling of spaciousness on the countertop and not compromise the uniqueness of the environment.

The 3D coating, with dynamic effect reliefs and wefts, also adds sophistication to the space, especially when applied to the wall in front of the entrance door. Porcelain tile and 3D wall cladding are resources widely used in bathrooms of daily use as they guarantee the practicality of cleaning and the protection of the wall against humidity.

11.Choose shelves to compose

Shelves can house both decorative and personal hygiene items, offering more charm or even a mix of tones in the space. In the image, we can see the mix of dark and lighter tones and the inclusion of green, following the Urban Jungle trend, which makes the space even more cozy and cheerful.

The use of a glass box also favors natural lighting, which helps to save on electricity bills, is sustainable and inhibits the spread of fungi in this environment, which is always humid.

12.Choose the sliding door

Project @renataborges.arquiteta – Product Stelle Fendi 32×60

The opening and closing of a traditional door can be quite inconvenient when it comes to decorating small bathrooms. This is because the opening angle demands a larger internal space, which could be optimized with a small closet or a large mirror. The alternative makes the decor more modern and even avoids accidents.

13.Have custom-made furniture

Project @arquitetura.iv – Product Capraia Lux 120×120

Taking advantage of every available inch is essential for those who live in small properties. In the bathroom, this translates to: custom-made woodwork cabinets (often following the design of the sink countertops  ), narrow cabinets or bookcases that fit into recesses in the masonry, and shallow shelves.

In addition to being perfectly suited to the proposed space, they are functional, as they store everyday items and decorative accessories. Take advantage of the lighter wood fashion and invest in lighter looking cabinets — marine plywood or pine wood are good options.

But if your goal is to create a feeling of spaciousness and uniqueness, don’t be afraid to create an entire porcelain tile countertop, which can even have the same design or color applied to the walls and floor. The tip is to use porcelain tiles that imitate marble,  which in addition to providing the effect also leave the environment extremely sophisticated.
