Ways To Make Your Bathroom Feel More Spacious

Effective colours and lighting

For a bathroom that appears spacious, carefully considering your colour scheme and lighting is a great place to start. Patterned wallpaper and busy patterns can make the room look smaller, on the other hand, choosing a white colour scheme alongside warmer features and fixtures can enhance the space. You can also opt for light colours if white doesn’t appeal to you, as pastel colours can work well when creating a feeling of light.

As well as your colour scheme, you should also consider your sources of light. Some small bathrooms don’t even have windows, especially if you live in an apartment, so creating a sense of natural light is important. Soft LED lighting effects – as well as ceiling downlights – can create good lighting for an illusion of space, especially when placed over a sink or under a bath panel. Opting for light shades of colour in your tiles will also reflect light, creating a brighter space.

Clever storage solutions & wall-hung features

Wall-hung furniture, such as a vanity unit or even a wall-hung bathtub, are also effective ways of creating space. However, if you’re only looking to make some minor changes to your space, investing in some clever storage solutions – to minimise the visual clutter in your bathroom – is extremely worthwhile. These range from wall-hung shelving and corner fitting cabinets, to simple solutions such as baskets, trays and hampers that can store your personal items, such as toiletries. Even just by keeping your space clean and tidy, you can create an airy feeling which is essential for making your bathroom more spacious.

Choosing the right shower and tiles

If you want a spacious bathroom, you should carefully consider your choice of shower and tiles during the design process. A walk-in shower can provide a spacious feel to your area, but sometimes a lack of space doesn’t always allow for this fitting to be added to a small bathroom. However, making changes like swapping shower curtains for glass shower doors or glass shower screens can go a long way. Another way to create a feeling of space is to choose a frameless shower design. As for your tiles, selecting larger tiles that require fewer grout lines will help to create a spacious feel. If you do like smaller, mosaic-style tiles, limit these to a small area, such as above your basin. At Boro Bathrooms, we have a selection of floor tiles and wall tiles available, as well as showers, and our team would be delighted to help you find the perfect style for your bathroom.
