Most of us have to work with limited square footage in the bathroom. This means making use of every inch of space on offer to the hilt without ever sacrificing on aesthetics. Getting this elusive balance between functionality and form right is what will define and enhance the appeal of your bathroom. And when space is such a premium, those desolate corners can come in handy indeed! Putting that empty bathroom corner to use is a lot easier than you think and there are plenty of ways in which you can get this done.
Bathroom corners are often ignored because they throw up some really hard angles to deal with. Yet, with a hint of creativity, the right design plan and a smart modern bathroom accessory or two, you can easily overcome this perplexing geometric challenge. Today we have 25 gorgeous inspirations that will hopefully change your perception of that dull corner in the bathroom forever!
The corner shower is no longer a cutting-edge innovation that most of us marvel at. It has become so popular in contemporary homes that most homeowners actually opt for one even when they have a spacious bathroom that can accommodate a shower anywhere with ease! The corner shower stall creates a more open and airy ambiance in smaller bathrooms and this appeal is enhanced by showers with glass doors and walls. In a moderately spacious bathroom, the corner shower area allows you to add an additional bathtub or Jacuzzi, turning the mundane bathroom into a stylish home spa of sorts.

If the small corner shower sounds a touch too claustrophobic for your liking or if you already have your shower area set in the bathroom, then why not add a freestanding bathtub to the empty corner. Corner bathtubs can break visual monotony in contemporary bathrooms and their stylish curves and unique design bring contrast to a space dominated by simple, straight lines. The revival of freestanding bathtubs in the last few seasons means it is an addition this is both trendy and practical. Vintage claw-foot bathtubs and hip, colorful also promise to usher in a whole lot of fun!

Depending on the size of the bathroom and the available corner space, consider a sleek vanity or sink to fill up this empty space. Those with a really small bathroom can opt for a full-fledged corner vanity that comes with sink and a few storage options. If the vanity seems a touch unnecessary, then try out sleek corner pedestal sinks that come in a wide range of shapes, styles and hues. The corner sink is indeed a brilliant way to save up precious space in the tiny bathroom!

Floating shelves are a super-efficient and ultra-easy way of enlivening the bathroom corner even while adding additional shelf and display space. This is one idea that will require very little effort, will not force you to undertake any major renovations in the bathroom and is a project that can be completed in absolutely no time. Apart from acting as storage space for your bathroom towels and accessories, these shelves can also showcase a couple of artistic pieces that will add color and character to your bathroom.

Unlike the simple floating shelves, adding an upper cabinet or a stylish medicine cabinet can be a bit more taxing. But it is well worth the time as these lovely cabinets fill up the empty corner elegantly and provide plenty of shelf space. It is the style of the bathroom, the position and shape of the counters and the lighting that define the depth and overall design of these angled cabinets.

We talked earlier about the shower taking up one of the corners in your bathroom, but what if you could make the corner even more useful! A corner shower bench does not sound like much, but it does make your life a lot more comfortable. These cool corner benches are not extensive and do not get in the way when you are standing up. Just add a couple of shelves next to it for all your hair care and grooming products and you are all set.

Bored with the conventional? Here is a solution for the bathroom corners that is truly out-of-the-box. The use of large glass windows has become something of a norm in most modern homes and you can bring this charm to the bathroom as well by opening up the corner. Corner windows, large glass walls or even few smaller windows can bring the view outside indoors and alter the lackluster corner dramatically.

Finally, here is a solution that should almost cost you nothing, takes literally the minimum possible effort and is great both for the aesthetics of your bathroom and your health – a lovely, potted plant. That’s right; instead of searching for complicated alternatives or filling up the corner with unnecessary shelves, just turn to nature for the perfect, pleasant solution. If not a flourishing topical plant, then freshly cut flowers in a vase or a small orchid can do the trick.
