5 Ways To Make Your Small Bathroom Feel Bigger Than It Is

Monday, April 04, 2016


Is your bathroom a little size impaired? Perhaps you’re lucky enough to have a larger master bathroom but a teeny tiny ensuite? Most people have had a small bathroom at some point in their lives and they’ll attest that a smaller room can pose a real challenge when it comes to making the room feel bigger than it is.

While there are times that you can physically extend the space, that is certainly not always the case and for many, the dream of a spacious bathroom is just not feasible for the size and layout of their home.

But fear not! The good news is that there are plenty of really clever ideas to make the most of the space you’ve got to work with.

Idea #1: Keep the lines clean 

Avoiding clutter is the number one thing you can do to make any space feel bigger. Simple modern fixtures, frameless or semi frameless shower screens and streamlined vanity units are just a few tactics to consider.

Idea #2: Colour choices really do matter

Keeping things light and bright will make the space feel more open but don’t be afraid to add a pop of colour here and there if you’d like, just make sure it all works together. Keeping the floor tiles the same throughout the room and shower also make the room flow better.


Idea #3: Consider downsizing

If your heart is set on having a bath but there’s no space for a “normal” size one, consider opting for a smaller version. There are lots of options on the market that are smaller in length but are deeper so you can still enjoy a bath.

Idea #4: Use what you’ve got

Is your room a strange shape? Got some architectural quirks? Use them to your advantage so you’re not wasting space. Think corner showers, wall hung furniture and inwall toilets to save you space and make those oddities work for you.

Idea #5: Create a focal point

We said in points one and two to keep things clean and bright, but it’s a great idea to add a touch of something special to the room to draw in the eye. Think elaborate mirror, eye catching light pendant, feature panel on the wall, big window or even an artwork if space allows.

No matter the size of your bathroom there are always things you can do to make it a more enjoyable, relaxing space. We hope today’s tips have given you some ideas for your next renovation. If you’d like to organise a free consultation with us to chat about your ideas, get in touch today.
