Maximising Small Bathroom Spaces

Need help finding space in a less-than-ideal bathroom? Or are you looking to maximise functionality in your downstairs cloakroom? Well, no matter your bathroom renovation needs in Sydney, we’ve got you covered. Let’s dive into some of our tips and tricks for getting the most out of your small bathroom spaces!

Dual Purpose Products

When designing a bathroom in a smaller space, it is vital to make the most of the elements that have multiple functions. As a top renovation specialist in Sydney, AAA Handyman has seen some exceptionally tiny spaces be transformed by the use of some clever features. For example, a mirror with built-in storage can serve as a dual-purpose product, providing a reflection and a space to store toiletries.

  • Combination units: Combination units are where you have the sink integrated into the toilet tank, recycling water from hand washing to be used for future flushes. These handy units are ideal for small spaces in Sydney!
  • Hidden storage: Avoid open shelves filled with clutter and opt for sleek, built-in designs custom-made to fit your space. The doors will hide clutter, improving the appearance of even the tiniest spaces! Opt for a sliding door with a mirror to really get the most out of your space!
  • Mirrored cabinets: Feature a cabinet with a mirror above your sink to improve storage without compromising on floor space!
  • Shower over the bath: By combining a bath and shower, you can get the best of both worlds from your Sydney home without letting go of any precious floor space!

Light and Airy

When completing any renovations in Sydney, it is crucial to consider the overall feeling of your home regardless of space. Here at AAA Handyman, we have found the light and airy approach to be one of the cheapest and most effective ways to create the illusion of space.

  • Light colours: Think pale blues, delicate greens and splashes of white to create an ethereal space oozing elegance.
  • Trick the eye: Textures or stripes that force the eye to examine the length of a room can help to create a more spacious appearance when done correctly!
  • Crafty paintwork: Painting ceilings white with extra stripes of white going lower down the wall than usual can trick the eye into seeing a vaulted ceiling. This effect can be especially powerful in smaller bathrooms.
  • Floaty fabrics: Avoid the heavy, blackout-style curtains found in bedrooms and opt for a lighter window covering or blind made from natural materials. Or choose a frosted glass for privacy and do away with any window coverings at all if you’re really stuck for space!
