5 Tips to Improve Your Bathroom | Small Bathroom, Big Ideas

One of the most used rooms in the house tends to be the bathroom, it can be nice to give it a fresh touch-up of paint or a mini refurbishment one in a while. Luckily with some minor changes here and there, you can make your bathroom feel spacious, stylish and modern. Here are five tips on how you can improve your bathroom;


A fresh coat of paint can go a long way when you’re looking to transform any area. TIP – Don’t forget to make sure the paint is anti-mould and mildew. A good solution is to go for a more neutral colour and add features or towels for a pop of colour. If you have a tiled bathroom and would prefer to replace them, stone is a great option as it gives off a homely feel and gives a more modern twist on the bathroom.


Instead of replacing the whole bathroom why not consider upgrading? This can be a great solution if you’re working to a budget, instead of replacing the whole shower or toilet consider just replacing the toilet lid or the shower door/curtain or head. This can give a dramatic amount of change without having to refurbish the whole bathroom and you don’t even have to spend a fortune! This is a very simple and easy way to change the bathroom without hiring a professional or going over budget. We also tend to get bored very easily, therefore, this way you could change it around when you fancied.


Mirrors help create the illusion of a brighter and bigger space, long and tall and round mirrors all have the same effect and equally exaggerate the size and space, therefore, the choice is yours to opt for a style that will suit your bathroom. TIP – Adding the mirror directly in front of the window will have huge benefits during daylight and will give a spacious feel to the bathroom.

Storage Solutions

Like all spaces bathrooms can become very cluttered, therefore decluttering should be one of the first steps to improving your bathroom, this means getting rid of all the empty products that have made their way back into the cupboard and donating any unused bath and body gift sets. Once you have done that prioritise maximising space with clever storage solutions. Every corner should be used to create some kind of storage space, for example you could add a robe hook on the back of the bathroom door, this would also be useful to hook bathroom towels on, this will be practical yet still subtle.


Just like colours of the bathroom lighting is another important factor – unsure what type of lighting to choose? You need to make sure the bathroom feels spacious, if you have a low ceiling in the bathroom make sure not to choose lighting that draws people’s attention to the ceiling. A more modern option for bathroom lighting would be various spotlights fitted into the ceiling this would create good lighting and give a clean finish.
