How to make small bathroom look larger

It’s challenging to decorate a small bathroom in a way that makes bathroom space look larger than it is. However, with a few handy tips below your bathroom will look a bit roomier. Let’s troubleshoot that tiny bathroom!

​ Problem: Clutter 

A bathroom sink

Solution:
Utilising upward space is the key! As well as looking great, wall-mounted jars keep little bits and pieces together and out of the way. Store the less stylish-looking items higher up, well above the natural eye line, to ensure they don’t cramp your bathroom’s style! Hidden storage, such as shelves mounted above the doorframe or hanging storage on the back of the door, is also a great way of making it look like you’re not a hoarder.

 Problem: A classic bathroom suite is too big

Bathroom sink-and-storage comboSolution: Avoid bathroom suites that takes up too much space in your tiny room. Try a sink-and-storage combo. A vanity unit will give you the perfect place to store cosmetics or linen, and it looks stylish too. Make a decision whether you can declutter your bathroom. In the end, there could be no need for a big storage unit.

 

 Problem: Dark walls or flooring makes the room look smaller

Solution: You needn’t stick to pale colours to achieve a light and airy finish (although it is always an option), just be clever with your finish. If bright, dark or colourful bathroom tiles or flooring has a slightly reflective or iridescent finish, it’ll bounce light around the room, helping to counteract the light-absorbing issues associated with darker shades.
 

 Problem: You worry that bold accessories are taking over

Bright bathroomSolution: Don’t let a small space hold you back from expressing your love of colour! A predominantly light-coloured bathroom can really benefit from a pop of colour – and the best way to do this in a small room is to choose essentials in bright colours, rather than adding unnecessary bits and bobs just for decoration. This colourful towel display is perfect.

 

 Problem: A room that looks disorganised

Organised small bathroomSolution: Even if you only have a few must-have items in your bathroom, it can look messy and more cluttered if they don’t sit in a logical space. This organisational rack is a great idea, and whether you put flowers, a candle, or some beauty essentials on top, they’ll look like they belong.



These are some of the ideas you could use to make your small bathroom look a bit larger. Don't be afraid to experiment with the decoration and small accessories. Sometimes smaller details create bigger impact rather than making huge changes.
