Ideally, if you have two separate vanities in the bathroom, each should offer some sort of storage for basics such toothpaste, a soap dispenser, a hand towel, etc. Usually these would go in the cabinet under the sink but this design is a bit different. We should also mention that double sink vanities come with a few disadvantages as well, the biggest one being related to space. A bathroom like this one, for example, is quite large, bigger than most standard bathrooms so not everyone can enjoy its benefits Another concern could be the reduced counter space. The second sink takes up considerable space on the counter so you might not want to give that up. Of course, it all works out if there’s plenty of space to go around, like in this case. The bathroom backsplash is a great focal point here.
Bathroom Layout Tip 3: Provide sufficient space. When you consider the heavy demands of a small bathroom, it might be tempting to try to squeeze more than what`s wise into the hard-working space. But more features in less space doesn`t actually translate into a better bathroom layout. In fact, the opposite is true. For example, toilets need 30” of space. The smallest shower size allowed is 30”x30”. The center of a sink should be 20” away from the wall. Generally speaking, double sinks do best with 36” between them. If you simply don't have the space, realistically, for all the things, it's time to reevaluate the functionality and eliminate the components you don't absolutely need.
The shower curtain is another important element in a bathroom’s interior design and decor. A lot of times it`s a must-have, not just a decorative element. That being said, it`s totally understandable to want to customize this element. A particularly interesting idea in this sense can be to make a macrame shower curtain by gluing lace onto a plain and regular curtain. The inspiration for this comes from abeautifulmess. Another idea can be to paint a plain shower curtain. You could create an ombre effect and you could even use a stencil to paint something on top, like this “I woke up like this” text featured on abeautifulmess. The project is not as messy as you`d think and it really encourages one`s creativity.
Sometimes a neutral bathroom color can turn out to be the best choice, depending on the style and the materials you`ve chosen. A beautiful shade of gray will not look boring or austere as long as you manage to make the bathroom look welcoming and stylish in other ways. A few wooden accents and a soft, fluffy bath mat should do the trick. Another option is to give the bathroom a tropical look by using certain colors mixed with various different patterns. A nice combination can be between turquoise and green displayed on a crisp white backdrop. If bathroom tiles are involved, there are a lot of different options to consider in this case as well. A particularly interesting idea is to use tiles that have a less than common design, like these ones. You can create a scalloped tile pattern that doesn't really need color to stand out.
Perhaps your countertop could use a makeover too. Replacing the counter with a new one can often be an expensive project plus that would mean you’d have to make other changes around it as well and at the end of the day it’s just not worth it. On the other hand, simply change the look of the existing counter sounds like a more appealing option. Perhaps you’d like to try this faux marble countertop look. Spoiler alert: it’s actually concrete. If by chance there’s any space next to your toilet, you could fit this brass toilet paper holder in there. Well, the actual top holder is actually just a small part of this wooden organizer but you get the idea. There’s a compartment in there for the brush too so you don’t have to keep it on the floor anymore. Right now you should have a general idea of how you can decorate and personalize your bathroom on a budget and we hope you’ll try some of the projects we showed you here today. Remember that the finishing touches are important and that the little things matter.
