A small bathroom doesn’t have to be a problem with our tips on maximising space.
Natural light is the best kind for brightening a space and making it seem bigger, so wherever possible make the most of it. However, we understand that if you have a small bathroom you are likely to also have a small window. Use mirrors to bounce the light around the room, but not too many as it can be overwhelming. Choose light, reflective tiles to give a bright look and a glass shower screen to avoid blocking off any space.
Colour plays a big part in the look and feel of a room, and with all small spaces a light colour is your friend. Soft pastel shades are a nice alternative to whites and magnolias, while neutrals will keep the clean look. Textured tiles can add interest to one colour rooms and you can add well-placed accessories to add a splash of colour.
If you’re more partial to a shower than a bath it might be worth removing it completely. A walk in shower will give you plenty of extra space as well as a sleek and modern looking bathroom. A wetroom is also a great option for small spaces, but make sure towels and toilet paper are not too close to the shower area.
It might sound obvious but cluttered surfaces will make the room feel smaller. Hide away cosmetics and toiletries in compact cupboards where possible, and try to get into the habit of putting things away as soon as you are done with them. Use wall mounted storage to free up floor space, but make sure it is not too deep or the room may look cramped.7
