How to Design a Small Bathroom | Tips & Tricks

Exciting news! A couple of months ago I moved into my own flat for the very first time! I have always dreamed of having my own place, with lots of space for bookshelves, decorating it like Mindy Lahiri from The Mindy Project, but the reality of it is well... much smaller. As much as I love my tiny, little flat I've have had to get creative with space.

Today I've teamed up with Harrogate Bathrooms* to share some of my new found wisdom for making the most out of small bathrooms, but a lot of these tips can be great for maximising any room in your home. I'll be including lots of Pinspiration so feel free to Pin some of these ideas for later!

Keep It Neutral

Coming from a girl who loves colour, neutrals don't have to mean boring magnolia, and can actually make rooms feel a lot more spacious. Mixing and matching textures and patterned tiles help to create something that feels more luxurious and contemporary. Harrogate Bathrooms have a fab selection of natural stone tiles, my favourite being the walnut and honey.

I personally love cool toned greys in a bathroom. They give me total Blair Waldorf vibes. Or why not go for classic black and white? It looks ultra modern and really opens up the space.

Mirrors Are Your Best Friend

It's an age old tip that mirrors help to make a room look bigger and it's a tip I swear by. I am currently obsessed with the circle mirrors I see all over Pinterest and Instagram. Paired against minimalistic tiles, they look incredibly stylish. Geometric mirrors work really well too. Urban Outfitters stock fabulously quirky mirrors with added shelves and storage. Practical and pretty! You really can't go wrong. Which brings me on to my next point...

Be Sneaky With Storage

Bathroom storage doesn't have to take up lots of space and, if added in the right places, can help your bathroom to feel less cluttered. Creating shelves in the shower/nooks in the wall work really well and look fantastic, as Harrogate themselves show. Or if that's not possible, simply using shower caddies and adding floating shelves is better than having a separate set of drawers taking up precious floor space.

Make It Yours

Maximising space is only half the battle and there's only so much you can do to make a bathroom look bigger. But there is plenty you can do to make it look beautiful. Moroccan tiles and copper fixtures always look amazing. Framed prints and pendant lights add extravagance, whilst terrariums and hanging plants help it to feel less clinical.
The possibilities for a beautiful bathroom are endless and I'd love to hear some of your tips and tricks! I can't wait to share photos of my home once it's all fully up and running. I'd love to do mini room tours at some point. Let me know if that's something you'd all be interested in, in the comments below!

  1. I LOVE this post so much! I love my bathroom but I would love to change it in the next year or so. It's tiny so I can't really do much, I but I love all these ideas. It's actually funny, me and my boyfriend were just saying to each other how we want to try and have some better storage for toilet rolls, I love that wall idea for it where you stack them! :D

  2. Your blogs and its stuff are so notable and worthwhile it can make me
