5 top tips for maximising small bathrooms

When it comes to the bathroom, we want it to feel like a spa-like sanctuary where we can clean, relax, and refresh. It sounds ideal but what if you don’t have the luxury of a big room? And what can you do to make it feel more spacious?

Thoughtful design and smart storage are among some of the key solutions to tackling this issue – while making your bathroom look as stylish as it is functional. Need guidance on maximising your small bathroom? We’ve got you covered.

Together with the experts at bathroom brand VitrA, we’ve collated five top tips to help you transform any small bathroom into a restful retreat…

1. Stay simple

Keen to redecorate your bathroom? Ensure you keep it light and fresh by using neutral tones. We’re talking off-whites, creams, and soft greys – all of which can make your space feel bigger and brighter.

Natural materials, from stone and wood to cork and bamboo, are ideal for adding depth and texture to your bathroom while enhancing that calming retreat feeling. Avoid anything too fussy and just stick to basics with a simple aesthetic.

2. Let’s hang

Why let any vertical space in your bathroom go to waste when square footage is at a premium? If you’re planning a total refurb, consider wall-hung designs such as VitrA‘s Voyage furniture and sanitaryware by Arik Levy.

The range is entirely wall-hung and can be positioned anywhere in the room to suit individual needs. It works particularly well for tight or awkward spaces – with both open and closed storage options.

Alternatively, you can also try the ArchiPlan wall-hung washbasins which are available in 28cm and 38cm projection.

3. Prioritise bathroom storage

Every bathroom needs good storage to help create a clean, clutter-free zone. Designed with compact living in mind, VitrA‘s modular furniture ranges – including Equal, Plural, and Sento – are the go-to choices.

These pieces can stand alone or be used together to make the most of your bathroom and optimise every inch of it. Apart from looking sleek and stylish, these units are ideal for adding warmth and interest to your space through the organic shapes, geometric forms, and neutral finishes.

4. Utilise the wall space

We know how precious every inch is when trying to maximise a small bathroom. A great way to better utilise the wall space is by simply installing a few racks, rails, and hooks to hang towels, bathrobes, and everyday essentials. These solutions are available in a range of sizes and finishes to match your scheme.

5. Time for reflecting

A mirror can easily bounce light around the room and make it look much bigger in an instant. Put one above your washbasin to create a focal point, such as the Prime illuminated mirror or Liquid two-tone mirror.

Need extra storage? Then why not opt for the Sento mirrored cabinet which comes with organising space for your favourite bathroom knick-knacks?

Add interest to your basin area and boost its practicality factor with VitrA‘s Prime illuminated mirror.
