How to plan a small bathroom
From light-enhancing mirrors to smart storage solutions and wall colours to make the space feel bigger, we've got all sorts of clever tips to help you make the most of your small bathroom.
Maximise space in a small bathroom with these furniture ideas and design tips.
2. Wallpaper the walls
Wallpaper works really well in cloakrooms and en suites and is an easy way to add visual impact. Nautical motifs and navy and white stripes are a popular choice, but don’t be afraid to try out more daring and adventurous designs.
3. Use the space beneath the sink
Consider buying a sink with handy storage built in, or if you already have a pedestal sink, try placing a shelving unit or cabinet underneath. This is a great way to add extra storage to a bathroom or downstairs toilet without sacrificing floor space. It also gives you a convenient place to stash your cleaning products.
4. Utilise corner space
If you want to make use of empty space, converting corners into storage areas is a great idea. Many cabinets and shelving units are designed to tuck neatly into these awkward spaces, ensuring that no nook or corner goes to waste.
6. Pick an all-white scheme
White décor is especially effective in small bathrooms as it opens up the space and makes it more appealing. Having a white or neutral base also gives you the freedom to experiment with colour and pattern elsewhere.
7. Turn walls into storage
Smaller bathrooms lack floor space, so consider storing things in wall-mounted units instead. These take up far less room than free-standing units and come in shapes and sizes to meet a wide variety of storage needs.
8. Create a wet room
With a shower system installed, you can turn even the smallest of bathrooms into a sleek and modern wet room. Simply separate the toilet and basin from the shower area using a screen and waterproof the walls and floor. This will give the space a more spa-like feel.
9. Make the most of door space
The back of a bathroom door can be turned into useful storage area with the addition of a hanging shelf unit. Use it to store small toiletries and other bathroom items like face cloths, towels and spare toilet rolls.
