Maximising style and space: 5 Design tips for a Small Bathroom

"When I began my design journey, The Blue Space stood out as an essential element for realising my ideal space, offering a collection of the top brands i'd admired for so long. I engaged with their in-house design team through a virtual consultaion who provided expertise, which ensured a cohesive design within my bathroom. I couldn't recommend The Blue Space enough with their incredible customer service and range of gorgeous Australian brands." Sammy - First Time Renovator

1. Make the most of limited space


Opt for Space-Saving Fixtures in your bathroom: Choose compact and wall-mounted fixtures like toilets, vanities and wall tapware to open up valuable floor space.

With limited bench space, additional storage options such as a shaving cabinets and shower wall nieche can really make all the difference.

2. Large Tiles in a Small Space


Large-format tiles, especially in light and neutral colors, can work wonders in a small bathroom.

The larger tiles have fewer grout lines, which creates a more open and spacious appearance. Light colors, such as soft whites, pale grays, or light blues, can reflect more light, making the space feel brighter and more open.

Additionally, consider the direction the tiles are layed, which can create a sense of depth and visually expand the room. This tile choice not only enhances the aesthetic of the bathroom but also gives the illusion of a larger, more open space.

3. The crucial role of lighting


In a compact space, proper lighting is essential to make the room feel more open and inviting. The right lighting can eliminate shadows and dark corners, creating a well-lit environment for daily grooming and tasks.

This bathroom features a gorgeous skylight, soaking the room in natural light, accompanied by accent LED strip lighting which adds a touch of warmth and style.

With the right combination of lighting fixtures and well-planned placement, a small bathroom can not only appear more spacious but also become a more functional and inviting space.

4. The space enhancing benefits of a frameless shower screen


Frameless shower screens create an open and seamless look, making the bathroom appear larger and less confined. The absence of bulky metal frames or borders allows for a more spacious and airy feel.

Frameless screens allow more natural light to penetrate the shower area, which can brighten up the entire bathroom. The transparency of the glass also helps in maintaining an open ambiance.

As a side note, the gorgeous curved shower screen, really compliments the curve of the ADP Waverly Vanity.

5. Thoughtful layout


In these confined spaces, every inch matters, and a well-considered layout can make a world of difference. The placement of fixtures, such as the toilet, vanity, and shower, can significantly impact how efficiently the space is utilised.

To help with your bathroom layout, use tools such as 3D planners and Style Sourcebook to help with product selection and design.
