HOW TO MAKE A SMALL BATHROOM LOOK BIGGER

HOW TO MAKE A SMALL BATHROOM LOOK BIGGER

I feel like I’ve been planning our bathroom forever!! Project bathroom began in January, but due to the need of a new boiler everything was put on hold.

 

Having this extra time to get lost on Pinterest, I must have completely changed my plans about 10 times.. but we have finally decided on our design!!

 

Living in London, space is always an issue! Our bathroom is super small, and I’ve been researching into ways to make your space feel more spacious!

I have collated my 5 favourite tips below I found on Pinterest for any of you also short on space and joining the project bathroom club shortly…

 

Colour Schemes

Always opt for brighter, lighter colour schemes!

I have had to resist from the rich navy and grey tones I wanted to incorporate originally and stick to the more muted shades.

Saying this, I am looking into injecting some richer tones with the towel rail and shelving so I get some contrast in the bathroom whilst still having a brighter, lighter colour scheme.

Gloss tiles vs Matt

Gloss tiles reflect a lot more light than matt.

If your bathroom is restricted with minimum natural daylight, be sure to choose gloss tiles for the walls for extra brightness.

For flooring though, matt is the best option as gloss tiles on the floor can get super slippy (definitely not for me – clumsiest person ever!).

Small Floor Tiles

Smaller tiles on the floor create the illusion of a larger space. Hexagon tiles are a great option! Giving an interesting finish to the room whilst still creating a brighter looking space.

Lay wall tiles horizontal

Horizontal tiles make a room look longer and wider, the best way to lay your tiles in a smaller bathroom.

Wall Hung Furniture

The more floor space you can see the better!

Our first plan included a boxed in sink and toilet, which was great for storage, not so great in the size of the room.

There are so many great floating furniture options out there to allow you to still get some storage whilst not jeopardising your space.

I am also a big lover of built in cubby holes (I don’t know the technical word) in the wall of the shower/bath. Great place to store your haircare and cleansers.

I hope you found this post useful!

I would love to know any tips you have on bathroom interiors, I still have a little time before our bathroom is fitted to change my mind for the 11th time…
