If you are limited on space in your bathroom here are a few tips to make your bathroom look stylish and spacious and to utilise the space you do have more effectively.

A Fresh Splash of Paint

One of the simplest things you can do to make your bathroom appear more spacious is to give it a fresh lick of paint.

Dark coloured paint or patterned wallpaper tends to make the room seem crowded and smaller, so switching to bright, fresh and simplistic colours / designs will instantly help to make your bathroom feel and appear more spacious. The benefit of using white based colours is that you have a blank canvas for which your bathroom furniture / accessories will provide the colouring.

If you like bolder colours, you could opt for a feature wall. This would be the perfect way of bringing the decor to life without it being completely overwhelming in a small space. Firstly, choose the wall you are going to use. This should ideally be a wall that has nothing on it (i.e. no windows or doors) providing a blank canvas in which you can create your feature wall. Then use a bold colour or a pattern effect to make the wall stand out.

Use The Wall, Not The Floor

A clever way of increasing the space available to you in your bathroom is to use back to wall and wall hung sanitary ware, such as toilets and sinks.

These items are designed to be compact, increasing the floor space in your bathroom, making your bathroom appear instantly more spacious as well as concealing the cistern and providing an aesthetically pleasing streamlined effect.

Drawers or Shelves?

When trying to make your bathroom appear more spacious open shelves are a great thing to have, as they provide you with lots of storage, whilst at the same time visually opening up a small space. Using inspiration from design magazines can also help to create a bathroom that looks more stylish, inviting and relaxing by using shelves to add your own ornaments and personal effects.

If you want more of a clean line look you may want to consider a bathroom vanity unit. This would be a great option to combine your bathroom sink with lots of storage underneath. This would free up floor space and enhance the feeling of spaciousness in your bathroom.

Tiling Tricks

The tiles you choose for your bathroom can create a feeling of space.

Using smaller or patterned tiles can often give the appearance of a smaller and cluttered bathroom. The best tiles to use are large, plain, light coloured tiles, which show less grout lines and make your bathroom seem more spacious, clean and elegant.

Bath or Shower or Both?

Possibly the most important features in your bathroom are your shower enclosure and / or bath.

If you would prefer a shower and a bath, but do not have the space for them individually, the best solution is to get a shower bath. Like a normal bathtub, they save space by sitting flush to the wall whilst still working as an excellent focal point.

If you decide that all you want is a shower enclosure in your bathroom then you are probably better off getting an enclosure with some form of sliding shower door or bi-fold shower door, such as a quadrant shower enclosure or a bi-fold shower door.

These shower enclosures are ideal in smaller bathrooms, saving space by using different shower doors. We have 2 options - the bi-fold shower door, which folds in on itself instead of opening outwards, and sliding shower doors which simply slide along the rails of your enclosure without needing any additional space to open.

If you are lucky enough to have a large bathroom space, you may want to utilise this space by making a wet room / large walk in shower area.
