Professional designers really know how to make the most of a small space, so we've taken a look at some of the more ingenious approaches and clever projects that have been completed for a little inspiration. 

If you want to tap into some of these genius small bathroom ideas, read on!

1. Don't have any cupboards

So you don't swallow up space unnecessarily.

2. Make it super light and bright

And the room will feel much bigger.

3. Stick to pale neutral tones throughout

For a cohesive feel.

4. Don't have a vanity unit

They just take up lots of space!

5. Always have a large mirror

To create a larger perceived area.

6. Use a transparent shower door

As they prevent a small room looking too sectioned off.

7. Make sure the door opens outwards

To keep the room unimpeded.

8. Add clever wall storage

That makes the most of already accounted for spaces.

9. Have a bath/shower combination

Instead of two separate installations.

10. Make the bathtub the unapologetic star of the show

Then minimise everything else.

11. Opt for compact suite items

That fit together perfectly and disappear into the background.

12. Be as clean as possible!

A clean, organised room always looks and feels more spacious.
