In addition, to achieve a contemporary look, it is advisable to use minimalist furniture, that is, with simple lines and designs. This will also help create a wider space, since furniture and accessories overloaded with details tend to create an approaching effect.
If you have flashy tiles, colorful wallpaper or extravagant light fixtures, although they play a key role in decorating the bathroom, it is important to keep things in balance, and this can be achieved with a minimalist closet. Decorate it with simple handles to make sure the space doesn’t feel too loaded.
Dark closets entered the kitchens last year, and now the trend is entering the bathrooms. Navy blue and pure black are going to be widely used tones this year. These bold tones look stunning with golden accessories or white countertops.

Accessories for Small Bathrooms 2021
The sink should not be huge, as small and classic as possible. Although it often has a storage place, we recommend those that do not have it, for a small bathroom.
If it is not a very tiny bathroom, a furniture under the sink is an excellent option to keep everything tidy and in place. Remember that it is advisable that the bathroom look as clean and as clear as possible so as not to create a feeling of overwhelm.
Wall Mounted Taps
Small bathrooms can use a smart space-saving trick, simply by mounting the faucets directly on the wall. This trend looks especially elegant in brass and black finishes, against white tiles or colored walls.
Mirrors are one of the most used decoration tricks to expand spaces optically. When the bathroom is small, longitudinal mirrors can double the feeling of space.
Mirror that occupies the entire wall
The mirrors should be as large as possible, since they give a greater sense of depth and dimension just as light or mirrored tiles do. Being a reflective surface, that surface is not delimiting, but acquires depth.
Putting the marble countertop at an angle to the mirror, completely hiding the wall, helps generate the feeling of space to support things.
Mirrors are a necessity, and this year the trend is round and as large as it can fit on the wall. You can go to a rustic or glam style depending on whether you prefer to frame them or leave them natural. Either way, they make the space feel much more glamorous than its square counterparts.
Why not turn your bathroom into your own private retreat? Personality is key in the design of the bathroom, and the addition of elements such as plants will help to achieve it.
The bathrooms are being treated like any other room, so you can use a carpet normally found in the living room or bedroom.
Color trends for Small Bathrooms 2021
Colors play a primary role if you are looking to create the feeling of spaciousness. Light colors are one of the best allies we can find, since they have the gift of moving away the walls of the receiver. If you combine them with vibrant colors you will achieve a revitalizing, energizing and very pleasant space, as we see in the photo below. However, it should be noted that modern bathrooms are characterized mainly by using a neutral color palette: white, gray, beige and natural wood.
The pastel color, earth color or neutral colors in light tones help generate the feeling of greater space. The same with the floor, we personally recommend a light color, with a bath mat in a soft and light color too. You can add touches of color in the accessories, such as a toilet lid, a row of colored ceramics, etc.
This is another trend: use a very dark color on one of the bathroom walls. It can be contrasted with natural textures, such as a jute rug and a mirror framed in wood, and you will have a space that will never go out of style.
Brass, silver and gold
These colors will continue to play a prominent role in bathrooms, but in darker tones. They look spectacular with pastel walls, modern cabinets and vintage accents.
Small Bathroom Lighting
To successfully complete this type of decoration, a good lighting must be incorporated. It should not be a dim light, but very bright, that adequately reflects the light walls and the touches of vibrant color. Remember that dark walls and objects tend to create the approach effect, and what you are looking for is to move away the walls and all the elements that are part of the decoration.
Natural light is always the best, otherwise it applies lights that illuminate a good part of the bathroom, pointing specific lamps at different points of interest, such as the mirror in front of the sink.
Why is the bathroom always the last room that receives attention? A beautiful and elegant decoration accessory will add important personality to the space.
Small bathroom with a shower
A small shower can leave room to place the toilet. This will help make the most of the space. They can be showers with completely glass doors, which will help create a feeling of greater space.

The use of space when it is reduced is essential. Do not hurry and you have to design the location of each element well; after installed, wanting to change it is very complicated, tedious and expensive.

The idea that those who have a small bathroom cannot have a nice, cozy bathroom, or a good bathtub is not correct. The techniques for the good management of space in the decoration of bathrooms exist and must be taken advantage of. Look below where we leave some images that show that it is possible.
