Create the illusion of space with these clever bathroom hacks

Limited on space, but still want a bathroom that feels luxurious and spacious? Here are seven design tricks you need to know about.

This stylish sink comes with a rack to hang hand towels as opposed to a wall-hanging rack which cuts down on visual clutter.


2. Recessed wall niches

A recessed wall niche helps to stop space being eaten into by wall fixtures. It also adds an element of luxe.

3. Simple colour palette

Wrapping floor tiles up one wall creates the illusion of space by making the room feel taller. The sheer panel of glass prevents any visual disruptions to the space.

4. Glass door

The hinged glass shower door can be folded back to create the illusion of space. We also love how the simple colour adds visual depth to the room and pushes the walls out.

5. Add mirrors

Mirrors help to bounce light around, which makes the room feel brighter. Mirrors also reflect space making it feel bigger.

6. Storage

In a small bathroom, storage can be a problem. Here, the sink is recessed into the wall to allow for accessible storage below and above.

7. Double duty bath

While white plays a part in making this area feel spacious, the clever all-in-one bath-shower zone is key in making this space work. A shower head is placed over the large bath to allow homeowners to enjoy either option without comprising on space.
