A little luxury never hurts a small bathroom. Natural materials, such as wood or stone ensure, a sensual and cosy atmosphere and give a graceful charm, which distracts from the square metre count! Quality materials are a great idea for small bathroom designs.

Tiled bathrooms

A small bathroom can be welcoming and generous, when the walls and floor are of the same material. The result is a unit that visually opens up a bathroom space.

The old rule says: dark = cramped, bright = big. So you should prefer to use the small bathroom and feel squashed at  the same time then by all means paint it black, otherwise you know what to do! 

Small bathroom lighting ideas

Proper lighting contributes greatly to the look of a room. In small bathrooms, it’s recommended that, instead of a single, central light source, you should install multiple lights that aren't so bright. Anyone who has the opportunity to bring skylights in the ceiling or to extend the window should absolutely do it; the more natural light falling into the bathroom the better.  

Small bathroom tiles

One advantage of having a small bathroom: you have little tiling to do. This means that not only can you afford a better quality tiles, than if you had a larger bathroom, it also means that redecoration projects will be quick and easy for the future. 

Storage for small bathrooms

Storage space is a must in any bathroom, but it can become a particular problem in smaller ones. So, take advantage of every nook and cranny, every corner and enclave you can find for your house towels and bathroom accessories. Bespoke fittings, which take advantage of every inch, are the ideal solution and look singular. 

Small bathroom shower ideas

Whoever has the opportunity to plan a new plumbing infrastructure in the bathroom, should dispense with a bath, because it takes up way too much space. With a walk-in shower has, however, you make the most of what you have. 

Shower cubical ideas

Shower doors can reduce or narrow the visual space gained in a bathroom; and especially a small one.Transparent sliding doors or glass partitions let the small bathroom seem much larger and look great!
