Small Bathroom Designs

With space at a premium in many homes, the bathroom is often the smallest room in the house. However, good things often do come in small packages and, with a bit of creativity and an eye for detail, you can really make the most of what you’ve got.

Use your space wisely

Choosing the right furniture and fittings can have a huge impact on the appearance of your bathroom. Installing features such as recessed shelves and ‘floating’ furniture can really open up a room. Similarly, selecting furniture such as half-size baths and small corner basins can help you to make the most of the space available to you.

You could even think about eschewing the traditional bathroom layout in favour of a wet room. After visiting some bathroom shops in Essex, I learned that the key is to use stylish small units with colours and light to enhance space.

Be clever with colour

Clever use of colour is a simple and effective way of making a small room look bigger. Whites, neutrals and pastel tones are a great choice – they reflect the light, creating the illusion of space. Try using the same or similar tones across the whole room for a clean and cohesive look. Strong contrasts can make a room seem smaller so, if you like bright colours, it’s best to save them for accessories and key focal points.

Clear the clutter

Lots of clutter can make your bathroom seem smaller than it really is. Clever storage solutions can help you to streamline the space for relatively little cost or effort. Funky dispensers and glass jars are great for smaller items, and also double up as stylish accessories. Meanwhile, wicker boxes and baskets can help you to keep larger items, such as towels and cosmetics, out of sight.

Making the most of your bathroom doesn’t have to entail major home improvement works. There are a wealth of clever design ideas out there to help you create a spacious, stylish haven where you can relax in style.
