small bathroom

Bathrooms are one of the most used rooms in the house. In the situation where your bathroom is not as large as you would like you can still make it a great room with some simple adjustments. We’ve got some great tips on how to work with a smaller bathroom below:

  1. Less is more

Cramming your bathroom with as much as you can will most definitely make it feel small and uninviting. Try to keep furniture to a minimum as well as products on display. Consider floating cabinets and vanity to give more room underneath, a rectangular bath rather than a circular one, and consider a shower curtain rather than a door to maximise your space. A mounted towel rail is another great space saver to consider.

  1. Mirror mirror on the wall

Consider utilising mirrors in your bathroom to create the impression of space. You could also use a cabinet that has a mirror on to serve a dual purpose – a mirror providing the illusion of space and also a cabinet for storage. Alternatively putting a mirror over your bath will help to make your bathroom larger.

  1. Big and neutral for tiles

Installing large tiles for the floor rather than small ones will help make your bathroom look wider than using very small tiles. If you install them on an angle rather than straight from the door it will give perspective and the impression that the room is larger than it is. In addition when considering colour, using fairly neutral colours and not a bright colour or patterned tile will again help the bathroom feel spacious.

  1. Neutral colours and light

As with the tiles in tip number 3, sticking to fairly neutral colours on the walls in your bathroom and furniture will help create the illusion of a larger room. Using too many dark colours will actually make your room feel smaller. In addition if your bathroom does not have much light consider adding more to help it feel brighter and more spacious.

  1. Remove your bath

If your bathroom has a bath in it that you don’t really use – you could consider getting rid of that arrangement and replacing it with a shower – which would potentially take up half the space that the bath does, giving you some more space in your bathroom.
