Small Bathroom Ideas: How to transform a small bathroom

If you’re limited on space in your bathroom, it can be difficult to get inspired by the latest bathroom trends and styles! In this blog, we’ve asked our bathroom experts for their top tips on how to transform a small bathroom, with plenty of small bathroom ideas to help you make the most of your smaller space. From the fixtures and fittings you need to the decor trends that will help open up your bathroom, settle in and get ready to be inspired.

Space saving bathroom storage

By combining different elements in your bathroom you can free up space that you didn’t know you had. One of the easiest ways to do this is by combining your basin and bathroom storage, our vanity units are great for this as you get the benefits of a luxurious looking basin with the practicality of bathroom storage. Opt for cupboards or drawers that can hide all of the bathroom cleaning products and toiletries that all to often give bathrooms a cluttered, cramped look.

Our Piana matte grey and black steel framed vanity unit is a great choice for a small space. The minimalist design aesthetic means the unit is incredibly unobtrusive, however, it offers ample storage space in the form of internal drawers. Coupled with wall mounted taps, this is a great space saving tips for those looking for small bathroom ideas!

The best lighting for small bathrooms

Lighting plays a huge part in the perception of space and by opting for smaller lights instead of one large lighting fixture, you can help make your bathroom look bigger. Spotlights in the ceiling or placed in the walls are a great option for those with limited space, bear in mind that bathroom lights need to be sealed to stop any water ingress. One of the key areas in the bathroom that requires good lighting is the mirror and a mirror that incorporates lighting not only saves space, it also makes sure you look your best on a morning! We offer a selection of mirrors with touch sensor LED lighting that will fit perfectly in any size bathroom complete with built-in demister.

Save space with a corner bath

If you’re planning on completely renovating your bathroom, a great way of freeing up space is to utilise the corners. Adding a corner bath is a great option for those lacking in space and will give your bathroom a luxury, spa-like feel. Traditional baths that go against the wall chop into the floor space that you have, by switching to a corner bath style you save around two-thirds of the length needed and give the impression of a wider space. At Lusso Stone, we decided to give the corner bath a modern twist! The Lissoni solid surface freestanding bath has sleek curves and smooth lines and is ideal for smaller bathrooms. Like all of our stone baths, the Lissoni corner bath is made from high-quality stone resin and is incredibly easy to clean and care for.

Shelves and wall mounted cabinets for small bathrooms

In a smaller bathroom, floor space can often be dominated by your bathroom fittings, so a great way to add storage without sacrificing more floor space is to choose wall mounted cabinets and shelves. Wall cabinets that also double as mirrors are ideal for smaller spaces, as are floating shelves that offer an elegant way to display bathroom decor items and your favourite toiletries. To save even more space, look for corner shelves that can be stacked to add both function and a striking decor point to your bathroom. Bath shelves are fast becoming essential in contemporary homes and can be used as additional storage for your favourite scented candles, lotions and other decor.

What is the best wall colour for a small bathroom?

One of the easiest ways to monopolise space in a small bathroom is by adding busy, patterned wallpaper or tiles. As tempting as it may be to add something bold to your space, a busy pattern encloses the space and can end up making a small space feel even smaller. When decorating your bathroom, opt for solid colours or choose a decor theme with one feature wall. If you want to add patterns or prints, save these for wall art, curtains or towels.

There are colours which help to give the impression of a larger space and are ideal for bathrooms, if you are planning on redecorating we advise opting for pale blue, soft greens, pearl grey or any other pastel shades. Flooring is another place were colour can really make a difference, if you walk into a bathroom where both the walls and the floor are dark, it can give the impression that you’ve stepped into a box. To make your bathroom feel bigger, go for a dark colour floor and light walls.
