When the Color changes everything
Small bathrooms are not only decorated in light neutral tones. The most vibrant colors are very welcome, as in this project by Studio Livia Amendola. Here, subway tiles in turquoise color made the space happier. Note that the claddings were placed vertically, which created a feeling of greater ceiling height.

Betting on sliding doors in small bathroom cabinets is a good way to save space. In this project, signed by Tesak Arquitetura, the closet door runs from one side to the other, revealing or covering the part necessary for use.
If the idea is to bring more personality to the bathroom, why not bet on a different painting? Currently, paint brands offer specific products for wet areas, including.

Niches on the wall
From the Nop Architecture office, this bathroom has a niche built into the shower area. This feature is interesting for small spaces because, in addition to creating a harmonic look, it prevents the resident from bumping into a possible shelf while taking a shower.
It’s not because the bathroom is small that the mirror needs to be compact.

In addition, it is more comfortable for the resident when it comes to getting ready after a shower.
Signed by Up 3 Arquitetura, this small bathroom oozes style. Inside the box, wood covers the floor, wall, and ceiling. The black metals, as well as the stone on the bench, bring even more personality to the space, which has a wall covered with porcelain that imitates the texture of burnt cement .
For this bathroom, architect Marina Romeiro chose white finishes and light wood for the joinery, creating a Provençal atmosphere in the space. The light palette brings delicacy and makes the environment seem larger.

Enjoy the walls

In this bathroom, created by the Nop Architecture office, light colors predominate, which bring a feeling of spaciousness. Despite this, the professionals chose to leave the shower area well marked, with a black metalwork box.
All snapped together
In this small bathroom, designed by Gabriel Cordeiro Arquitetura , the joinery occupies all the available space without leaving the heavy environment. That’s because professionals designed open and closed cabinets. All in neutral colors.
Architect Marcela Wandenkolk has added color to this small bathroom through the blue cladding, which covers up to half of the wall – the rest has been painted in white. The cabinet was also covered in blue laminate, in the same shade as the tile.
