How To Make The Most Of Small Bathrooms ♥

Small bathrooms can often feel very cramped as there are so many different things that we need to squeeze into them. If you have quite a small bathroom, then you might be wondering if there is anything you can do to make the room feel a bit more spacious.

Well, you’ll be pleased to hear that there is - you might just need to make a few changes and tweaks to the bathroom decor. Here are a few more tips that should help you to get more out of your small bathroom.

Use A Shower Curtain
If you use a screen to stop water splashing out of the shower, then you might want to swap this for a curtain. Shower curtains are a lot more maneuverable, and you will find that pushing the curtain all the way back when it is not in use can help to make your bathroom feel a lot more open. This also gives you the chance to install a shower head over your bath, so that you don’t take up space by adding both a shower cubicle and a bathtub. I personally love the vintage style shower curtains from Farm House Fare - they'd be a real feature in a small bathroom!

Add A Corner Sink
It’s also worth reconsidering the position of your sink in the bathroom. If it is right in the middle or a wall right now, you should think about replacing it with a sink unit that can be placed right in the corner. You’ll be able to find these kinds of sinks online at www.drench.co.uk and similar stores. This corner sink shouldn’t ruin the path that people take when walking through the bathroom.

Go For A Light Color Scheme
Next time you need to redecorate your bathroom, it’s worth taking a look at www.dulux.co.uk for some paint. If your bathroom is currently decorated in dark colors, it’s worth brightening it up with a lighter palette. This should help create the illusion of space in it, which will make it feel a lot larger than what it actually is.

Hang Your Towels On The Bathroom Door
One item of furniture that can often take up a lot of room is the towel rail. Even if you hang it on a wall, it could still be jutting out and taking some of the room’s floor space. Instead, you will find it a lot more beneficial to hang the rail on the back of your bathroom door. This shouldn’t take up too much space compared to rails hung on walls.

Light With Wall Sconces
It could also be a good idea to consider changing the lighting in your bathroom. Many people find that adding wall sconces are a great way to make the bathroom feel a lot more spacious. This is because they will light the ceiling from below, which can make it appear higher than what it is. And that will help make the whole room feel bigger as well.

Hopefully, all of these tips help you to make the most of your small bathroom and maximise the space, so that you can enjoy it more.
