How to Make your Small Bathroom Look Bigger, brighter and Open

A Large bathroom is considered a luxury

but a small washing area can be considered as such with a few simple tweaks. The bathroom is a room you mostly use alone, there isn’t need for much more than than basic sanitaryware.

Invest time to plan

Investing time to plan at the start of the process: firstly, a small bathroom must be structured and practical (form follows function). This means you have to consider every possible configuration for your toilet, bath, basin and shower, as well as how best to hide pipes etc and where you can fit in storage.

Think outside of the box

Sometimes, thinking outside of the box really helps with small spaces, building out a wall in order to install a hidden-cistern toilet for example, this can help create more space and a better choice of layout.

Rethink your space

Light bathroom

If you’re trying to fit both shower and bath into your bathroom, it’s important to consider how both of these will have a huge impact on the overall feel of the space. Choose a ‘frameless’ shower screen, light is able to pass freely through the glass and the cubicle itself seems far less imposing.

Install a wet room

With small bathrooms, waterproofing the entire space to create a full wet room gives you the full freedom to plan a bathroom which wouldn't have been an option in a standard bathroom.
