Our homes are getting smaller and small apartments, bedsits and house shares are becoming an increasingly popular choice for first time buyers. We’re here to show you that size doesn’t matter as much as you might think – especially when it comes to bathrooms.

We’ve come up with 5 ideas to inspire you to make the most out of your small bathroom. At Pebble Grey, we believe your bathroom should be your sanctuary, a place to relax and unwind. We’re uncovering secrets of the trade so you can Do It Yourself.

1. Decorate

First and foremost, you need to make sure that you are using colour schemes and patterns that work with the space.

 Using stripes to elongate the room really works but make sure the stripes are wide and bold.


2. Use the cornerscorner

A well designed bathroom utilises every bit of space on offer. A corner sink, bath or storage could really free up a lot of space and also look quirky.

Placing a corner sink opposite a window with a mirror above not only stretches a space but also lightens up the room, which brings us onto the next point.


3. Bathroom Design is all smoke and mirrors

Not really a secret of the trade, and a fairly obvious point but we’re going to say it anyway. A well placed mirror can add meters onto a small bathroom. An illuminated mirror is even better. At the moment we’re loving long, landscape mirrors, with lighting all the way around the edge.

If you are lacking space on the wall, then a smaller mirror can work just as well.

Use the mirror to reflect natural light and accentuate what the room already has to offer.

4. Storage

In a small bathroom, there definitely needs to be a place for everything, and everything in its place. Shelves keep your toiletries and items of the surfaces while keeping them to hand. If you are afraid that this might make your small bathroom appear cluttered then you need to think about a bathroom cabinet. Illuminated bathroom cabinets make great storage solutions and keep your bathroom looking neat and tidy, while adding extra light. Many of our cabinets include a shaver socket on the inside, so you can keep your toothbrush and shaver hidden away while on charge.

5. Bathroom Design

Modern bathroom design has had a large focus on small bathrooms this year and there are a lot of ways you can save space just by the bathroom furniture you choose. Storage underneath the sink helps hide away clutter. If you’re looking for a more minimalistic solution, then floating sinks are the way forward.
