Top tips for making your bathroom look bigger

Top tips for making your bathroom look bigger


Posted 26th Feb 2015

In our opinion, bathrooms are the most important room in the house. They’re a place to get ready for the day ahead, or to unwind after a hard day at work. However, all too often, we hear that people’s bathrooms are too small to be truly enjoyed. This simply isn’t true. With the right amount of practical planning, even the smallest of bathrooms can be made to seem bigger than it actually is. Read below to find Pebble Grey’s useful tips for improving small bathrooms.

Declutter floor space and surfaces
This is the easiest tip on the list, but one that is often overlooked. A cluttered bathroom will look small, especially if you are prone to leaving towels, soaps, shampoos, flannels, razors and toothpastes all over the place. Keep towels on a rack or hanger on the back of the door – don’t just leave them thrown over the side of the bath or shower. Similarly, only keep essential bathroom and beauty items out around the bathroom. Your glorious selection of perfumes doesn’t need to be on display all of the time.

Make use of a quality mirror cabinet
This will help keep the room tidy, with the added bonus of the mirror element making the room feel bigger. Go as big as possible with this one – the larger the mirror cabinet, the larger the space for storage behind it. Consider one of Pebble Grey’s illuminated cabinets, the soft LED lighting helps to warm up the room as well as creating the illusion of more space.

Think about your bathroom’s colour scheme
Bathrooms with minimal styling are very popular at the moment. This is because they look great, but more importantly, they look big. Stick to using as few colours as possible, with this applying to all elements across the bathroom. Keep colours clean and simple. Some contrasting tiles are okay, just don’t go too wild. Mixing lots of colours and materials will make the room look busy and overcrowded. A clean, crisp white will always work well, which is part of the reason why it has remained so popular over the years.
