Looking for small bathroom design ideas? Small bathrooms can be practical and efficient, require less cleaning and maintenance than larger rooms and still look just as stylish. Read on for our top design tips when it comes to making the most of a smaller bathroom.
Using wallpaper in a bathroom can give the room that unique, unexpected look that will help to disguise a smaller space. Wallpaper made specifically for the humid conditions of kitchens and bathrooms is available at most homeware stores like this one from B&Q.
Freestanding furniture such as storage racks and cupboards allow you to move them around so you have more options with how you use the space. Tall tiered storage is also a good option for maximising the space as it will naturally draw the eye upwards and make it appear bigger.
Make the most of wall hangings
The unused space on your walls is ideal for adding shelving or a towel rail to keep your small floor space free of clutter and give you the storage space your bathroom needs.
Wall-hung units make more of the floor space visible, which can make a small room look bigger or can make an attractive storage space.
If your space is limited by your door openings, another option to consider is installing pocket doors, which work in partition walls to keep your floor space free.
A hint of colour
White is often the colour of choice for smaller bathrooms as it will make the room look lighter and bigger, but you can still use bright colours in your accessories such as towels and mats as this will appeal to the eye.
Matching your floor tiles to your wall tiles is a great trick to create the illusion of space in small bathrooms as it keeps the space open visually and makes it hard to tell where the floor space ends.
