Just because this is a studio apartment bathroom, you should not be able to express your individual and personal style.
For instance, the photo shows painted designs on every inch of the small apartment bathroom — and with astounding success. Most people would be apprehensive about making a bold, decorative statement in such a small space, but it makes absolute sense.
At the end of the day, why not do something that is really worth ogling at —- if it will be an alternative to bare walls closing in on you?
Given that bathrooms are occupied for a brief period of time, we have the liberty to incorporate fantasy decorative themes. A touch of whimsy here and there can create a big impact in a small space.
But, as you are already adding these creative touches, it is important, again, to emphasize proper lighting. Even in a small space, fitting a single overhead pendant would leave out dark areas in the corners.
The solution to this is to wash the bathroom walls with light from ceiling-mounted spots. To bounce it into the corners, it is advisable to use white bathroom fittings.
Add the Perfect Mirror
In a studio apartment bathroom, a huge mirror can work wonders. Aside from stretching the limited space and turning clusters of objects into impressive focal points, people of all ages can use the mirror.
But be careful as limits do exist with the amount of mirror you can add in your bathroom. Case in point: full-frontal reflections are generally not welcomed by everyone.
Replacing some panels of your window with mirrors will increase your privacy, but at the price of reducing the amount of daylight filtering in the room. As seen in the photo, the best option is to screen the window with blinds.
Accent and Storage
Because of limited space, there is a tendency to forego little accent pieces. A solution is out, for example, put glass shelves across the window, and use the additional space to showcase decorative objects and steam-loving plants. Just ensure that the shelves you choose are removable for cleaning.
If you are thinking of storing everyday items in your bathroom (such as toiletry), check that these are within your reach. It is also essential that they are secured so as not to get wet by splashes during a shower or your soaps destroyed by unnecessary moisture.
