From double basins to separate baths and showers we’ve all got an ideal bathroom in mind. By implementing our 4 simple tips your small bathroom will soon look like the spacious room you’ve always dreamed of having.

1. Go Pale With Your Bathroom’s Colour Scheme!

The simplest way to make your bathroom appear bigger? White walls! Keeping your bathroom colour scheme neutral and soft - by avoiding bold colours or tiles can create the illusion of a larger space.

This, when combined with the fact your fixtures are most likely already white, will get you well on your way to a larger feeling bathroom, with little to no effort.

Gloss white metro tiles combined with clean white walls can work to provide a stylish yet spacious look to your bathroom. They’ll also easily complement your bathroom suite, without compromising on character.

Not a fan of white? Not to worry. Other neutral colours, such as soft greys and seafoam greens, will work just as well.

2. Small Bathroom Units

In smaller bathrooms, you may have trouble finding storage cabinets that don’t overwhelm. However, we’ve found a couple of ways to ensure you get enough storage without compromising on the style of your bathroom.

First up? A wall hung vanity unit. Hanging cabinets don’t take up any floor space, giving the impression your bathroom is more spacious.

Having this additional space to plant your feet can really give a big sense of space in your bathroom.

Next up, tall storage units.

In smaller bathrooms, it can a challenge to fit all of your storage essentials into small corner cabinets. However, by utilising vertical space you’ll able to fit a nifty tall cabinet in your bathroom without it encroaching into your bathroom space.

Plus, by having this additional storage your bathroom will appear larger as it’ll be clutter-free.

3. Stunning Small Bathroom Mirrors

Nothing makes a small bathroom feel more spacious than a mirror. By adding a single large one or a number of small bathroom mirrors you will be right on your way to making your bathroom seem roomier.

From mirrored cabinets to illuminated bathroom mirrors you can find the right style and size for your space, depending on your bathroom colour scheme of course. We recommend long wall to wall mirrors, as these can help visually double the size of your bathroom.

4. Bright Lights

Great lighting is so important. It not only helps when you’re getting ready but can also help make your small bathroom look big and open. In bathrooms, natural light can be lacking so having lighting that can make up for this really helps.

As previously mentioned, illuminated mirrors are a really great way of making your small space seem much larger. But have you ever considered spotlights in your bathroom?

While normally associated with kitchens, spotlights equally share the light across your bathroom, thus making each corner appear brighter and more spacious. Alternatively for a more simple approach why not consider a multiple spotlight plate.
