Small spaces tend to look crowded or cramped when the decor or furniture of the room outweigh the dimensions. With a few clever tricks and tips from interior designers and decorators, it’s possible to make intelligent use of the space available in the bathroom. The simple use of colour, materials and textures can not only create the illusion of space but also make the bathroom appear appealing with the right balance of decor and practical features. Let’s explore some ideas on how to add beauty to the bathroom while making the most of its space!

Patterned tiles help to shift the focus from the dimensions of the bathroom. With the help of a suspended storage unit, every inch of space can be put to optimal use. Granite slabs are an excellent choice for the storage unit. A mirror to complement and a few accessories to decorate the ledge can complete the look.

A single color for the bathroom

Opting for the same set of tiles to line the body of the bath creates a holistic, singular look that gives the space a well-defined appearance. Lighter shades such as grey or dull white work well with wooden furniture or storage units. Another idea is to opt for wallpaper to alter the theme from time to time.

Play with colours

There’s no need to feel hindered by the lack of space in the bathroom. Simple additions such as a burst of colourful tiles can make all the difference in the world. Contrast the arrangement with an all-white ensemble and a wooden shower frame and it looks stunning! Mirrors or reflective surfaces can also help to create the illusion of space.

Make use of wall-mounted fixtures

Wall-mounted fixtures work well in compact bathroom designs as they allow for the pipework to be hidden and save floor space. The freed-up space can be used for shelving or a laundry basket. Sprucing up the look of the bathroom with the right accessories can liven the area instantly.

Make the mirror the centre of attraction

Making the mirror the focal point of the bathroom creates the illusion of space. A frame with intricate designs would be ideal. Another option is to install a mini chandelier for an opulent look.

It is best to keep a small bathroom open without overcrowding it with too many things. Making use of a pedestal sink as opposed to a bulky vanity helps to make the bathroom seem bigger than it is. Another trick is to make use of a clear glass door instead of a shower curtain with glossy ceramic tiles for the flooring to reflect light.

Wall mounted modular furniture is perfect for storage in a small bathroom. The dimensions of the furniture can be chosen depending on the requirements. Playing around with textures or darker colors can elevate the look of the area besides creating the illusion of space in the small bathroom.

Freestanding and multi-functional furniture

The limited footprint shouldn't stand in the way of creative flair. Consider the use of freestanding furniture that can be moved around to offer flexibility in the layout. Freestanding storage is not only versatile but also as efficient as fitted units for keeping the bathroom looking well organised.

Keeping the bathroom spic and span is also essential for great-looking bathroom design.  Browse through these ideas for inspiration.
