10 design ideas for small bathrooms

If there’s no possibility of extending into a landing or spare room, it’s vital to plan your small bathroom space in detail to ensure a successful renovation project

The average small bathrooms in the UK measures just three square metres, but as they are one of the most used rooms in the house, it’s essential to ensure that all of the space is utilised in a redesign. Small rooms can be restrictive but, if you are imaginative, there are ways to make the most of the space you have.

Minor alterations, such as raising a windowsill to fit a bath or basin below it, or adding a pocket or folding door, can help. Even rehanging a door to open outwards rather than inwards can save vital inches, meaning that the smallest room can feel more spacious.

Here are ideas and examples to help you make even the smallest of spaces feel relaxing.
