Small Bathroom Design Ideas For Your NYC Apartment
By Tiffany Smolick
There is plenty of secret space and beauty to be found in a small NYC bathroom design. Whether it’s a trick of the eye, extra storage, or just embracing the little nooks and crannies —MyHome has all the design tips to make you fall in love with your small space.
1. Use Vertical Storage
Consult one of our knowledgeable design consultants about myriad vertical storage options. There are many options for shelves that will fit perfectly tucked between two walls.
2. Create a Focal Point
Including unique tile colors, shapes, or patterns can serve as a focal point in your washroom. Creating a design with a focal point will allow your eye to move around the space. Choose a tile that has enough color that gives your bathroom character and charm. The incredible metallic backsplash in the herringbone tile design pictured below is paired with a set of attention-grabbing mirrors.
3. Use Wall Space Wisely
There might not be a lot of floor space in a small NYC bathroom, so using the walls wisely presents a clever design opportunity. Consider adding sleek shelving and mounted holders for bathroom necessities. These features will act as storage solutions without cluttering your countertops.
4. Prioritize the Shower Space
After helping hundreds of NYC homeowners make the best use of their small bathrooms, we know the importance of prioritizing the shower space. It’s absolutely worth it to make the shower the largest feature of the bathroom. Opting for a basic sink with no vanity and a no nonsense toilet will provide the extra inches you need to enjoy the shower to the fullest.
5. Add a Shower Bench and Niche
Shower benches are easily installed. They allow for extra storage and seating area, even when the shower is not in use. Adding a shower niche will give your shampoo, conditioner and other items a home.
