9 Innovative Small Bathroom Design Ideas

Shall bathrooms can often present an interior design challenge. While smaller bathrooms are compact and can save you money on materials and decor, they can also often feel cramped and lack storage solutions to help keep organised.

Thankfully, with a little reorganising and a few design tricks, you can help make your bathroom look and feel more spacious. We have a look at nine design tips to help make the most of a small bathroom.


  1. Clever mirror placement

Mirrors are a tried and tested method of making any room feel larger. By placing mirrors where they capture the most light, you can help make the room feel brighter and more spacious.


  1. Use bright and airy colours

The use of lighter hues in the bathroom can help improve the sense of space. Keep in mind that neutral colours need not be dull, and play with lighting, decor, and fixtures to add depth and visual appeal to the space.

Think beyond just white, neutrals can include; shades of grey, nudes, light blues, pale greens, and so much more.


  1. Make a statement with wallpaper

If you want to add a decorative element, but lack the space to make the statement, then try a wallpaper accent wall instead. Choose one of the walls to add colourful or playful wallpaper that complements the overall style of the bathroom.


  1. Use greenery as decor

Natural accents can make a huge difference to the bathroom, and they can add visual integrates without overwhelming the room. Plants and greenery help elevate the look of a small room.

Orchids, snake plants and air plants will all thrive in a bathroom thanks to their humid environment, but faux greenery accents will also help bring the outdoors indoors without the need for plant care if you’re not green-fingered.


  1. Avoid pedestal sinks

There is nothing wrong with pedestal sinks, but with smaller bathrooms having limited floor space, the pedestal can take up valuable room. The space can be used for storage instead, helping to eliminate clutter.


  1. Use the same tile colour for walls and floors

A clever design trick to help make the room feel more spacious is to use the same colour tile for the walls and floor. By removing the separation, the eyes are tricked into believing the walls are further away than they are, giving the illusion of a larger space.


  1. Declutter

With a small space, you have to take the time to declutter as much as possible. This means only keeping necessary beauty products, toiletries and cleaning products in the bathroom. Anything else should be stored in your bedroom, the pantry or the laundry room to use as needed.


  1. Go dark

While bright colours can help make a space feel bigger, so can a daring dark and cold colour palette. Try to keep the floors and the lower portion of the room in lighter colours to create the illusion of space, but play with lighting and dark colours to tie in the different elements.


  1. Go for glass doors

Adding glass doors to the shower instead of curtains will make the shower feel more like part of the bathroom while extending the length of the space. However, ensure that you use innovative storage in the shoer to avoid a clutter of shampoo and shower gel bottles from spoiling the clean aesthetic.
