How To Make Your Bathroom Feel Bigger

CREATING A SENSE OF SPACE AND LUXURY IN A SMALL BATHROOM MAY FEEL TRICKY, BUT ALL IT TAKES IS A FEW CAREFULLY APPLIED TOUCHES. FROM DECORATIVE BASINS TO DRAW YOUR ATTENTION, TO A DESIGNER BATHROOM MIRROR TO REFLECT LIGHT, THERE’S NO SHORTAGE OF SMALL BATHROOM IDEAS THAT CAN BRING A BATHROOM TO LIFE. HERE ARE OUR FAVOURITE TIPS FOR TRANSFORMING A SMALL BATHROOM INTO AN OASIS OF CONTEMPORARY STYLE.

Start Small

When it comes to small bathroom design, fixture size and placement should be top of your list. Opting for smaller fixtures and fittings will maximise floor space and create that sought-after sense of openness.

Begin by ensuring there’s an obstructed path from the entrance to key features, such as the bathroom sink, shower, and toilet. Next, think about these features themselves. By carefully selecting compact yet efficient designs, you can enhance functionality and flow while making your bathroom appear larger.

Our Mini Aubrey luxury basin – pictured below with a Mini Theo Tap in polished brass, Theo Waste & Bottle Trap in polished brass, and Mini Finn support bracket in gold – subtly nestles into cosier spaces without restricting the surrounding room. The elegant colour and patterning, meanwhile, are understated enough to prevent any feelings of overcrowding.

If you’re searching for small bathroom ideas then our mini collections are a great place to start. As well as our beautiful array of mini luxury basins, we also have mini vanity units, taps, and support brackets. Below, the Mini Madeline basin presents another stunning example of how smaller bathroom fixtures can maximise space.

Materials

It’s no secret that carefully chosen materials can influence the visual appeal of a bathroom, but if used intelligently they can also affect the perceived size. Reflective, light, and translucent materials are all great at injecting stylistic flair while enhancing a room’s flow.

Consider a decorative basin that will add a layer of depth and expansiveness to your bathroom. Below, our Lucia countertop basin in green makes a beautiful statement against the lighter shades of the Felix vanity unit and surrounding furnishings in such a way that brings the bathroom to life.

Mirrors

Mirrors are a best-kept secret of small bathroom design. By strategically placing mirrors around your bathroom, you can bounce light and create the illusion of depth. This in turn makes your space brighter and more inviting.

Try installing a designer bathroom mirror above a decorative basin or bathroom sink, or even across an entire wall for maximum impact.

Wall-mounted Fixtures

One of the most effective small bathroom ideas to create a sense of spaciousness is utilising wall-hung fixtures. These sleek and stylish units can free up valuable floor space and create an airy ambience. Support brackets are a great option for suspending a luxury sink for an elegant floating effect and can be combined with wall-mounted taps as seen with our Mini Bryony basin and Mini Finn support bracket pictured below. We offer support brackets in both full-size and mini versions, perfect for small bathrooms no matter what size basin you choose

Curves

When it comes to making a small bathroom feel more expansive, curved designs can work wonders. Opting for curved luxury sinks, countertops, or designer bathroom mirrors will soften the lines of your bathroom and create a fluid and spacious feel. The Celestine decorative basin below, with its distinctive and flowing rim, takes this ethos to the next level. Combined with the Arlo Tap in polished gold, you have the perfect accompaniment for any small bathroom design that’s aiming to avoid harsh angles.

Light Colours

The power of colour should never be underestimated. Light, neutral shades, such as whites, creams, and pastels, can visually expand the dimensions of any space. For a small bathroom idea, consider using light-coloured paint, tiles, and accessories to create an airy and fresh atmosphere. You can also carry this theme across to your bathroom sink. The Angelica countertop basin – visible below in white – produces a refreshing sense of life against the pastel, floral-themed background.

Make A Statement

Finally, don’t let a smaller bathroom prevent you from achieving that showstopping look. A bright, maximalist statement piece can still create a striking impression in all the right ways – you just need to be a little careful in your approach.

Aim for a simple bathroom interior to avoid overcrowding and utilise the lighter colour themes mentioned above. Next, pick out a stunning luxury basin that really pops. This will draw attention towards the visual appeal of your bathroom design choices, all while overshadowing its more-limited size.

For inspiration, look at the Marnie decorative basin below. Taking inspiration from India, its vibrant pinks, blues, and greens come to life against the relatively simple backdrop.
