How To Use Tiles To Create The Illusion Of Space In Small Bathrooms

If you only have a small bathroom, the challenge can often be how you can make it feel more spacious and a little more luxurious.

Luckily, there are some great tricks you can use with bathroom tiles in Kent, or wherever you live, to create the illusion of space even when you don’t have much room.

Last month, Real Homes shared some of its top tips for using tiles and other decorating techniques to make a small bathroom look bigger.

One of the best places to start is by finding ways of reflecting light around your bathroom. Using tiles that reflect light is a great tip, as this will make your bathroom feel bigger and brighter.

Another of the website’s top pieces of advice is to use the same tiles for both the walls and floor, because this will not only “stretch space visually”, but also delivers a “smart, contemporary look”. It’s an option that can work particularly well in wet rooms.

For bathrooms with low ceilings, the best way to go is to fit tiles in vertical columns. This has the effect of drawing the eye upwards and will make the room feel taller than it really is. When it comes to colour, the best options are light, toning shades to pull off this trick.

Diagonal patterns, meanwhile, also have the effect of lengthening and widening walls to the eye, so if you can, pick tiles that feature this kind of pattern or lay plain tiles diagonally to make your bathroom instantly feel larger.

Research from Halifax last month revealed that installing a new bathroom is the most popular home renovation project among Brits, with more than 38 per cent of homeowners revealing that they’ve revamped this part of their property in the past three years.
