How to Make a Small Bathroom Beautiful

Cif believes that beautiful homes and beautiful places make us all happier. Here is a guide on how you can make a small bathroom beautiful and enjoyable.

Beautiful small bathroom design ideas

Playing with light and the boundaries of perception is a great way to create the illusion of space. Here are a few bathroom ideas for small spaces:

  • Neutral colours like off-white, beige, and tonal grey can make a small bathroom look bigger and create a sense of space

  • Consider adding a skylight or lights around the mirror to create the illusion of a bright and airy space

  • Decorating the side of your bathtub and wall with the same tiles makes it tricky to distinguish where one ends and the other begins, making your bathroom feel larger

  • Inject a hint of colour and personality with a few choice accessories to add character to neutral palettes and make your bathroom more joyful!

The trick with a small bathroom is making the best use of the space you have and using light to your advantage. If lighting is on your list of small bathroom design ideas, remember to make sure all light fittings have the correct IP rating for safe use in wet areas.

Small bathroom storage ideas

With clever storage, a small bathroom doesn’t have to feel cluttered. These narrow bathroom ideas will ensure your bathroom is practical, space-efficient, and stylish too!

  1. Tall, tiered storage saves space while providing extra room for all your lotions and potions

  2. Add a shelf above the sink to keep the floor clutter-free, and to provide easy access to the things you use every day

  3. Make use of the space above your toilet – how about a floating cabinet or a wicker basket of toiletries on the tank?

  4. Put cabinet doors and bathroom doors to work with hooks, handles, and storage bins.

  5. Stacked shelves and hanging jars or baskets make great vertical storage solutions for small spaces
