If limited space is a issue for you in your bathroom, or you are considering converting a smaller room in your household into either a bathroom, shower room, web room or en-suite there are lots of things you can do to give a illusion of space.
Being clever with your decorations, lighting and colours is and choosing the right bathroom furniture and bathroom suite wisely can give even the smallest room the feel of space.
The colour that you choice is really important. If you are looking for a colour to create the appearance of light in your bathroom, go for a light pastel shades such as whites, creams and neutral tones. Then you would be able to brighten up your bathroom space with accessories such as towels or soap dishes. Large tiles in light colours will also help create a sense of space - oversied tiles on the floor and walls can make a room look alot bigger.
Choosing the way that you light your room is also very important. For example, you need to find a way to get light traveling throughout the room to create a airy and open feel. The easiest way to do this would be to use bathroom mirrors. The use of a mirror with in your bathroom can create staggering results, as it will make your bathroom appear much bigger, and much more open. Using glossy points can also help you to create the illusion of space within your bathroom, as it reflect light around the toom.
The choice of bathroom furniture is also really important, for example cloakroom ranges are now available, and this include basins and toilets that mount to the wall, saving valuble floor space. Also, if you are looking to install a shower enclosure, opt for a bifold shower screen as these are specifically designed to fold inwards so they do not use any more room then needed.
Finally. the last thing that you need to think about when trying to create the illusion of space in a room is storage, clutter in the bathroom automatically makes it appear smaller, so put everything away that isnt needed.
A small room may be limited in space, but not in options for what you can do with it.
