A small space doesn't have to look cluttered or feel cramped when you incorporate a few clever tricks of thetrade. Your compact bathroom can soon ooze style and sophistication, even if all you have is a shower room idea to experiment with.
A couple of space-saving tips mixed in with a splash of gorgeous accessories will turn the most modest of bathrooms into anenviable space in minutes. We show you how to create the small bathroom of your dreams.
Create a sense of space bydefining zones
Use the method of zoning to make a smallspace feel more generous. This smart bathroom is small and simple but feels much bigger, thanks to the clearly defined zones. The toilet is less than halfa metre from the sink but thanks to the wood wall panelling and the tiledsplash back the two areas feel very separate, which helps to put a sense ofdistance between them.
2. Position taps on the side of a sink
Don't let a narrow bathroom space mean you struggle to get the look you want – simply think outside the box. Choose a slimline, oblong sink that allows for plenty of volume, without taking up as much space due to its width. Adding taps to the side will help to eradicate any problems you might encounter because of the slim width, because the water will run away to the longest length.
3. Create the illusion of space with an oval bath
4. Think like an expert
Architecturally and visually, it is best tokeep a small bathroom feeling open by not crowding too many things into it. Edit your amenities often, hang your towels on bars or hooks, keep pattern to aminimum, and generally, make it simple.
The room will feel bigger if you use apedestal sink rather than a bulky vanity, a clear glass door rather than showercurtain and reflective surfaces such as glossy ceramic tiles in a large scale.
5. Work in a wall-mounted unit
Wall-mounted modular furniture remains afavourite for storage, due to its fuss-free, streamlined look. Available in arange of heights, widths and depths, it means that you can create semi-bespoke furniture that best suits your space.

6. Make use of an awkward corner
7. Buy freestanding and multi-functional furniture
A limited footprint shouldn’t impact onyour creative flair. If your bathroom is verging on the small side, considerusing freestanding furniture that you can move around at a moment's notice.
Going for freestanding storage and seating allows you to move your scheme around whenever you like and, unlike fitted bathroom units, you can take free standing pieces with you when it's time to move out.
8. Make it appear larger with mirrors
