Most of us dream of having a large, luxurious bathroom where we can relax after a hard day’s work. Lovely if we have the space, or can extend, in order to make that dream come true. However, if that’s not possible, there are ways to make your small bathroom look bigger and yet stylish.
Have a look at our list of top tips for inspiration:
Wall mounted toilets and basins
Serve to free up valuable floor space in a small bathroom. They are available in various shapes, sizes and styles. They have the added advantage of being versatile, when it comes to positioning. They can be hung at whatever height is practical or desirable eg to accommodate children or wheelchair users. Just Tiles N Bathrooms offer a wide range of sanitary ware to suit all spaces.
Baths and shower units
In a small bathroom, the dominant feature is the bath or the shower unit. Traditional baths, whether fixed to the wall or free-standing, still have their place in today’s home but can limit space in smaller bathrooms. Consider how many times the bath is used and decide if it merits all of that valuable space. Removing the bath and replacing it with a large stylish shower unit can optimise your space. Alternatively, fit a shower above your bath with an on-trend shower screen. Or speak to our experts who can guide you through creating the perfect, up-to-date wet room which will be the envy of all your friends.
A concealed cistern is designed to be built into an existing wall or behind a new purpose-built wall. This also means that waste pipes are hidden from view, keeping visual clutter to a minimum. The new wall can then be extended and tiled, creating a shelf on which to place a basin and to hold all those necessities or decorative pieces.
The use of cleverly placed mirrors can create the illusion of space and greatly enhance the look of your small bathroom. They reflect natural or artificial light, so the larger the mirror the more pronounced the effect. Place the mirror on the wall directly across from the window, if possible, to create the illusion of another window. Also, consider placing it where the eye is drawn to first for maximum effect. A mirrored cabinet can double up to also provide much needed storage in a small bathroom. At Just Tiles N Bathrooms you can find a wide range of mirrors and cabinets, to help you achieve a bright airy look.
Use of tiles
With the huge selection of tiles available on the market today, it is important to choose the right tile to enhance your small bathroom. Consider using the same wall and floor tiles. This creates an uninterrupted flowing effect, making it feel more spacious. Stick to lighter, more neutral tones, as they open up and maximise the space. If choosing a darker tile, use it on the floor with a lighter tile on the wall. Clever use of mosaics in specific areas will add interest to your bathroom. Also think about using larger tiles as fewer grout lines creates the illusion of space. At Just Tiles N Bathrooms our experienced staff will be happy to share their vast knowledge on which tiles to use to achieve maximum effect.
