How To Make A Small Bathroom Look Bigger

September 28th, 2021

Are you struggling to get the most out of your space in a smaller bathroom? Well, Boro Bathrooms have a few tips for you. The team has compiled a list of 5 things we recommend you do in order to make your smaller bathroom appear bigger. 

Ditch the shower curtain 

If you’re tired of your shower curtain constantly sticking to you when you’re wet, it’s time to think about opting for glass instead. Not only will it make your shower space more stylish, but it will also make the space feel bigger. This is because being able to see all of a space tricks our brains into thinking that the room is larger than it really is. 

If you have fallen in love with a particular shower design, the team at Boro Bathrooms will do their best to deliver it. Our design team will help you choose the perfect shower screen for your room to give you the space you desire as well as a stylish look.   

Go all white

An all white bathroom will never go out of style. It is a timeless design and extremely versatile, with the added benefit of making your bathroom look bigger. This comes down to the fact that it’s light and bright and reflects light around the bathroom better than any other colour. You can also create a more seamless look in your space by opting for white bathroom fixtures. 

Consider coming down to one of our showrooms to truly understand the range of designs Boro Bathrooms has on offer. Speak to a member of our team to get some advice about choosing the best fixtures for your white bathroom and find out how you can get a sleek look by avoiding breaks in texture. 

Choose bigger mirrors

If you’re wondering how to decorate a small bathroom, one of the simplest ways to do it is to invest in mirrors. The bigger the better as far as small bathrooms are concerned. If you wanted to double the appearance of your bathroom, we suggest a mirrored wall, though we understand that not everyone would be able to cope with that. Boro Bathrooms offer a free design consultation if you did consider this an option. 

An alternative to the wall of mirrors could be hanging a large bathroom mirror above the sink. The key, once again, to making your bathroom look as large as possible is to reflect as much light as you can. Be sure to place the mirror somewhere it will reflect a nice view. Better to reflect a lovely piece of decor than something mundane like the toilet. 

Consider how you install tiles

Your tiles can make your bathroom look huge or completely ruin the space. There are lots of ways you can make tiles work in your favour, like running the same tiles from the floor to the ceiling, leaving you with no horizontal dividing lines on the walls. This gives the impression of your ceiling being higher, thus “creating” more space. Use large, plain-coloured tiles on the floor to give the impression of more floor space and create a cleaner, less cluttered look. 

Boro Bathrooms specialise in ceramic, porcelain and mosaic tiles. We are dedicated to delivering our customers the tiling they need to create their own unique space. 

Make use of wall space

The worst thing you can do in a small bathroom is create a cluttered environment. Open plan bathroom designs are here to stay because they’re so easy on the eye and make it easier than ever to display all of your beauty products. Just make sure you keep everything tidy because your items will constantly be in view. 

Consider building your shelves into the walls to free up a bit of space. With nothing protruding from the walls, all of your lines will be unbroken and the room will appear bigger. At Boro Bathrooms, we are more than qualified to install these shelving units for you
We hope that you have taken some tips from us to get your bathroom looking bigger. Remember, Boro Bathrooms offer a free consultation service that includes a CAD design service to help you to visualise your bathroom.
