Do you think that your bathroom is too small for a switch up? Then you couldn’t be more wrong!

Regardless of size, there’s plenty of ways to make your bathroom more stylish and practical.

Whether it’s corner fixtures or lighting techniques, there are smart solutions to make a bathroom with limited space look bigger.

Read on and discover these functional bathroom ideas for those rooms on the smaller end of the scale.

Corner Sinks

When space is an issue, by installing either a wall mounted basin or a corner sink, you’re going to free up space for other bathroom fixtures and fittings.

Many wall mounted basins in fact, come without a pedestal, providing you additional space to store items underneath it, such as a waste-bin.

Both wall mounted basins and corner sinks come in various colours and styles, so you can choose one which best fits with your bathroom décor.

L-shaped Bath

Baths and showers are the main centrepiece in any bathroom. But as with many prominent features, they demand plenty of space.

For smaller bathrooms, L-shaped baths are a great choice. These fixtures are continuing to grow in popularity, providing easy access and convenience via both their shower and bathing features and ergonomic design.

L-shaped baths have the wonderful quality of being adaptable enough to fit any bathroom design and are available in various styles, making them suitable for any setting.

Wall-mounted Vanity Units

From new storage options to elegant designs, vanity units are an important part of any bathroom.

Wall-mounted or corner vanity units are ideal for bathrooms lacking in space as they give you more floor space to work with. In fact, these fixtures can even make small rooms appear bigger when accompanied by mirror.

All vanity units come with built-in storage space, helping you clear your bathroom of clutter, creating further space in your bathroom.

Illuminated Mirrors

Mirrors are another standout feature of any bathroom.

Illuminated mirrors in particular can boost your bathroom’s style as they exude comfort and luxury. A bathroom mirror with light sometimes comes with additional vanity storage, creating additional space for those who use them.

Mirrors can create the illusion of space, making small bathrooms appear larger. In fact, they work well with tiled walls and floors, as the reflection makes tiles look multiplied.

Other ways you can make your bathroom appear bigger include using glass panels, applying bright lighting and using a full white colour scheme.
