Small bathroom ideas
Small bathrooms are the standard in apartments, therefore you will need expertise and inspiration for a decoration project. Clever space management, selecting the appropriate sanitary ware and connecting them with the existing pipe system are all complex activities and the final result is influenced by bathroom’s utility.
Bathroom natural stone flooring is the right choice, because it is the most durable flooring, so you will avoid the need for re-decoration in a short time. The project requires tiles with different size, usually up to 1-2 cm thickness. Travertine tiles with 1.2 cm thickness and brushed finish (slip-resistant) are suitable both in terms of thickness and also appearance. Another suitable choice is limestone, tiles of 1.5 cm thickness with brushed finish, besides marble tiles with a brushed finish and 2 cm thickness. Honed, bush hammered, tumbled or brushed finishes are standard for high friction coefficient, thus reducing the slipping risk, while the polished finish increases the slipping risk.

Always waterproof yokur natural stone flooring. Usually, unpolished finishes must be protected against water splash and staining. Professional sealing solutions and cleaners are required.
Ideas for small bathrooms decoration projects focus mainly on clever space management, based on local conditions. Here are our recommendations:
1. Suspended bathroom furniture – it will provide sufficient space for storage, but easier aftercare of flooring beneath the furniture. And placing it beneath the bathroom sink helps to save space.
2. Larger mirror – will increase the surface of light reflection by creating a sensation of a larger space. A bathroom mirror is natural and necessary, with a width to match the bathroom sink and a height depending on the wall and sometimes the location of lighting sources. Enlarging the reflection surface has a beneficial effect on the small bathroom, maximizing spaces and bringing more light into the dark areas.
3. Glossy Chrome Finish Fittings – extra reflection and a touch of modernism in the bathroom. Shiny chrome-plated sink faucets and glossy chrome-plated metal fittings (toilet paper, towel rack) illuminate more, also by reflection.
