While we’ve all been spending more time at home, so many of us have been looking at creative ways to make our spaces feel roomier.
This particularly rings true when it comes to small bathrooms. For those who live in a flat or an older house, you likely have a smaller, boxy bathroom. There’s maybe not much you can do about the physical space, and a can knock thousands off the price of your house.
Luckily, there are ways to maximise your bathroom with some clever design. If you’re looking to expand, we have a few tips to make any bathroom feel bigger.
Go Back to Basics
Consider what you actually need in your bathroom, and go back to basics - a toilet, a shower, and a sink. Anything else is additional clutter, so be harsh when it comes to clearing it out. Anything that rests on the floor - towel rails, etc - could be fixed to the walls instead.
Make a Mirror Wall
Mirrors are very good at exaggerating the space, and simply hanging a large mirror in a small bathroom will instantly make it feel much larger. Combining a mirror with a dark or dramatic colour scheme will help too.
Different kinds of frames will help shape the space you want – round mirrors will create a softer feel whilst frameless ones will feel luxurious. Mirrors are one of the easiest, and most effective, ways to make a room feel bigger.
Go Big with Tiles
If you think that a smaller bathroom would mean smaller tiles, you’d be mistaken. When it comes to compact bathrooms, the bigger the tiles the better. Smaller tiles mean more grout lines, which will make the space feel grid-like and tight. Wider tiles will make a bathroom feel bigger, especially if you choose light colours.
