Looking for small bathroom ideas?

We have 5 top tips to get the most out of your small space.

When it comes to remodeling a small bathroom, it can be hard to know how to get the most out of the space. If you are looking for small bathroom ideas that will make your whole space look bigger, we have five top tips to help you achieve this.

1) Colour matters

Colour matters when designing a small bathroom and it’s the easiest way to make your small bathroom look and feel bigger. You don’t have to keep it magnolia, using soft blues and soothing greens are not only great for reflecting natural light from the window, they are also great for people who are seeking to enhances a bit of wellbeing and tranquility to their home. If you want to add value to your property then blue is the colour for you! According to Homes & Gardens, this colour could add 1.3% to the value of your home!

Don’t just think about the walls, opting for a lighter colour shower curtain, or glass shower doors will allow for maximum light in your small bathroom.

2) Chose the right cabinets

Storage is key to keeping your bathroom looking clutter-free. Keeping things off the floor will ensure your bathroom looks and feels much bigger.  Before you start your project it’s worth thinking about what kind of storage you need.  Bespoke units are great for utilising awkward spaces especially if you don’t have much room to work with.  Bespoke cabinets are also made to fit perfectly into your room instead of trying to get off-the-shelf bulky units to fit. Another tip is adding a shelf into the shower and elevating your towel rail to free up that much-needed floor space. 

3) Go slimline

In a small bathroom renovation, it’s what’s behind the scenes that matters as well.  There is absolutely no reason why you would consider putting bulky toilets and sinks in a small space especially when there are slimline units available from most bathroom suppliers! In a recent small bathroom renovation, we used a slimline concealed toilet cistern and a compact sink along with tailor-made bespoke units to give that much-needed space without compromising on design.

4) Use a sliding or pocket door

Sliding and Pocket doors

Another option when looking for small bathroom ideas is the door which is a feature that is often overlooked. Adding a sliding or pocket door can really change the use of space and is not as expensive as you may think. There are two options when considering a space saving door. The first is an exposed sliding door which is a great option if you don’t want to knock down your wall but still want to enjoy the benefits, however, you do have to leave wall space free to allow the door to slide.

The second is a pocket door which slides into a frame built into the wall. Although both options save on that much needed space, installing a pocket door gives you even more wall space either side of the door. A pocket door can be added for as little as £400.

5) Choose the right bathroom fitter.

As with everything, it is worth doing your research when choosing a bathroom fitter. Small bathroom renovations can be tricky, especially if you need bespoke cabinetry, so you need to look for someone with the right skills to do the job. Online reviews are a great way to check out how reliable, safe and suitable your bathroom fitter is. At Heritage Joinery we get lots of reviews on rated people that give our potential clients that peace of mind they are looking for.
