How To Make The Most Out Of A Small Bathroom

There is such thing as a small bathroom but there’s also such a thing as not knowing how to utilise square footage to its utmost potential. Thing is, a lot of people decorate with the most standard of bathroom fittings and this can massively impact the use of your tiny bathroom. To get the most out of small bathroom try installing corner sinks, wall-hanging units and decorating with free-standing, tall tiered storage furniture. In a small bathroom, furnishings and decoration matters!


Top tips on how to maximise space in a small bathroom:

        1. Corner Sinks

Also, consider how you will use your bathroom, if you have your shower opposite your sink, you won’t want to be opening and closing the door onto it, so consider the correct placement to ensure optimal functionality and fluidity throughout your WC.

        2. Wall Hanging Units

          Floating fittings and cabinets can trick the eye and make a small bathroom look bigger. It will offer you more floor space too because you will have the area underneath these floating furnishings, ideal for laundry and wicker baskets.

        3. Tall Tiered Storage

          Keep your lotions, shampoos, conditioners and shower gels neatly in one place with a nifty tiered storage unit. If space truly is limited, purchase a lightweight, metal stand that can be carried to and from the bathroom.

        4. To-Scale Furnishings

          Tiered storageChoosing large, cumbersome, heavy wooden fittings can dwarf a pokey room, buy furnishings that are to-scale, to ensure you’re not overwhelming a limited space. Make your statement furnishings the bath or shower – rather than a large cabinet because really, that’s the better luxury.

        5. Use Storage to Avoid Clutter

          A small and cluttered bathroom may as well have a sign on it that says ‘out of order’, if you want to work with your small bathroom, you must use the storage you have and tidy/bin any unnecessary clutter.

        6. Natural Colours

          Avoid dark colours in your small bathroom. Use lighter colours, natural colours, that will open up dark corners of the room and allow the natural or artificial light to bounce off the white walls and mirrors. A dark and dingy bathroom will only look smaller and uncared for.

          Use the same times on the walls, as you do your floors. A natural stone will offer a luxurious spa style and trick the eye into thinking the room is much more spacious than it really is.
