2. Shower Instead Of Bathtub
The bathtub not only takes up a lot of space but also is much less sustainable. Plus it can give people with reduced mobility access and exit problems. By replacing it with a shower tray you will not only gain surface area, but you will also be contributing to the protection of the environment and removing architectural barriers.
3. Versatile And Custom Work Structures
Work structures allow us to adjust to the available space whatever this is, and to the shape that it has, as well as eliminates expendable elements such as cornices, frames, doors…
4. Under Sink Furniture Adapted To Space
If you have a very narrow bathroom, for example, you can opt for a narrow sink and a washbasin unit that extends along the entire available wall.
5. Drawers And Cabinets Without Handles (and without doors)
The objective is none other than to prevent them from protruding from the furniture, and therefore lighten the space and avoid possible blows when moving through the bathroom. The nail opening and pressure systems, that is, those that open when pressed by hand, fit perfectly.

6. Mirror Cabinets
Mirrored cabinets allow you to have two elements in one and save space. With only 10 centimeters deep you already have enough to locate daily cosmetics and hygiene products.
7. Light And Bright Colors
The choice of color is an indispensable tool to give a feeling of spaciousness with the same available meters. The white, light blue, beige, raw, bright, relaxed and combined coatings without stripes reflect the light and make the space appear larger, mirror walls could also do the trick.
8. Suspended Items
Exempt sinks, suspended furniture and suspended toilets are visually lighter and keep the floor clear, which facilitates cleaning (something essential in the sink).
9. Separators And Glass Elements
If you opt for separations, screens and even glass countertops, you will have a much clearer and more zoned space without losing any light, which contributes to give a greater sense of spaciousness. This is a common element for small bathroom ideas!
10. Towel Rail Radiator, A Perfect Two In One
The towel radiator is an ideal element to heat the bathroom and leave the towels at the same time. Keep in mind that there are mini models, with barely a horizontal bar, and that the electric ones can be installed without having to have heating throughout the house or do construction work.
11. Store Vertically
Take advantage of furniture sides and empty walls to put hangers, fabric organizers, cabinets and shelves that reach the ceiling, or you can even lean an old wooden ladder on a dead wall to place towels or baskets where you can leave toiletries and accessories.
