It can be hard to be creative when space is limited. Designing a small bathroom, especially if it’s the only one in your home can be extra tricky, but limited space doesn’t have to mean sacrificing style or functionality. At The Installation Centre, we believe that every bathroom, regardless of size, can be transformed into something stylish that works for your family. Here are some creative solutions we use for maximising small bathroom spaces:
1. Use your walls
Have you considered wall-mounted “floating” toilets, sinks or even vanity units? Not only do they free up floor space, they create a feeling of openness. You can also install built-in storage to keep toiletries neatly tucked away and stop surfaces looking cluttered.
2. Embrace Minimalism
The less “stuff” that you can see in a compact bathroom, the bigger it will appear. Stay away from fussy shapes and go for clean lines and minimalist fixtures to avoid overwhelming the space. Choose a streamlined toilet, sleek taps, and simple accessories where possible.
3. Get Strategic with Mirrors
Mirrors are your best friend in a small bathroom. They reflect light, create an illusion of depth, and make the space feel larger. Unlike the rest of these tips, with a mirror, bigger is better! Try a large mirror over the sink, or use mirrored cabinet doors to double-up on space.
4. Can you Have a Niche?
Set into the wall, even a narrow niche in a shower can make a big difference. Instead of bulky shower caddies or shelves that stick out, it can free up a lot of space.
5. Look Up
Use the vertical space to its full potential. Install shelves or cabinets that stretch from floor to ceiling. This will give you all the storage space you need, and it will draw people’s eyes upward, giving the room a sense of height and space.
6. Go for Gloss
By incorporating reflective surfaces like glass or glossy tiles you will help to bounce light around the room. This adds depth and dimension, making the bathroom feel larger than it is.
