Fall In Love With Your Small Bathroom

Small bathrooms often feel cramped, uncomfortable and, more importantly, unwelcoming. As if it weren’t enough, small bathrooms can dramatically impact on your mood. They make you feel queasy when you’re getting ready in the morning, force you to rush through your morning routine so that you don’t have to spend too long in a confined space. Rapidly, you can’t imagine anything more horrible than taking a warm shower in your tiny bathroom. In fact, regardless of the quality of your boiler, the warm shower will always feel too cold if you can’t make peace with your surroundings. So how do you learn to love your tiny bathroom again?

It’s not small; it’s poorly organised 

First of all, there’s a universal truth about bathrooms. Unless you live in a manor house, they will always be smaller than anything you can find in your favourite home design magazine. But it doesn’t mean that your bathroom is TOO small. It’s just not fitted properly to fulfil its function and match your needs. A small room that doesn’t maximise the space becomes automatically uncomfortable. So, ditch your space-hungry radiator for a slim heated towel rail and replace your full-size sink with a practical corner sink. You’ll immediately notice the difference!

And there was light 

Did you know that dark rooms appear smaller and less inviting that rooms that are filled with light? Admittedly, small bathroom means small window, and consequently not much direct sunlight. However, you can brighten up the space with an LED lighting solution from https://www.simplelighting.co.uk. A light panel in the ceiling can ensure that the entire room is bathed in light so that you don’t need to choose between a dark shadow and a bright mirror area anymore.

Use happy colours 

What the most common colour in British bathrooms? Magnolia. What’s the least favourite wall colour in Britain? Still magnolia! So what’s stopping you from painting your walls in something else than this dull beige whiteness? (or white beigeness, depending on how you choose to look at it). For a seaside feeling, you can pick a nice shade of blue – Dulux has some great bathroom paints for that. Pale green is a nice choice to bring more colour and energy to the room. Or for a healthy look in the mirror, you can use alight pink tone for the walls as it makes your skin appear fresh and rosy.

Find the best towels and make it yours 

You can have a luxury feel in your bathroom without needing to add a jacuzzi. In fact, luxury comes from your selection of products. You’ll find that organic beauty products make you instantly feel more conscious about your environment, and ultimately you can’t help to feel prettier in the process. You’re making the planet greener and using the best of nature for your skin. Another great transformation is the purchase of quality towels that are deliciously thick and soft. Contrary to the common belief, you don’t need to break the bank for luxury towels. You can get the luxury feel from Marks and Spencer for less than £20.

Ultimately, don’t they say everything that’s small is cute?
Make your bathroom cute again to rediscover how pretty and inviting it can be!

    I was always lucky to have quite big bathrooms. Even in my one bedroom flat, the bathroom was very large. I agree that light and pretty colors do make a difference in how a bathroom looks like.

    I am quite lucky that our bathroom is quite big and airy. I like jazzing up the colour with bright towels

    I quite like how my current bathroom is but can’t really make many changes as it’s a rented property. I’ll keep all these ideas in mind and implement them when I’ll get my own property.

    These are some great tips. Very well organized. I need some renovation in my bathroom.

    Oh I’m coveting some lovely white bathroom fittings. Ours are sadly miserable grey and beige – only slightly better than avocado of the 90’s

    Shelves and installing a small, functional corner sink are great ideas. Using white color would always make a space look bigger.

    I just stayed at an AIRBNB with the smallest bathroom ever. Let’s just say you had to sit sideways to go the bathroom. Not sure why they put the toilet in at that angle. Small doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy regular comforts. Just takes a little more planning.
