Small bathroom design tips

Small bathroom design…

Small bathroom design can be a real issue. If you’re in London, or even if you’re not, a dinky bathroom can leave us feeling underwhelmed when it comes to design. We therefore perhaps feel that it’s not worth the effort, being such a small bathroom space. And so we leave it to remain the one-dimensional utility that it is.

Question: why have beautiful design elsewhere in the home and not in the humble mini lav?

Exactly. Not to worry, we’re here to help with small bathroom inspiration. A little attention can go a long way.

This beautiful and useful component in a small bathroom can bring detail and intrigue to an otherwise soulless space. Have fun choosing from a wide range of stunning marbles to cut a piece from. Alternatively, display a few much-loved tiles from a trip abroad. If you have no other way to show a little flair, try using the splash back.


If you’re not keen on doing any works to space, with the right accessories, you needn’t change anything about your bathroom. A beautiful candle on a ledge, some dried flowers on the cistern, or a collection of colourful hand towels can make all the difference. We love the details around this simple wall-hung basin. It feels very natural and uncontrived. And yet the impact is big, wouldn’t you agree?

Perhaps detail is not really needed. A pared-back look for a small bathroom can do wonders, most importantly for how you might feel using the space. If it’s a small space, why not give it the room it needs? Bathrooms are intimate spaces, and also space where we ‘take a break’ in more ways than one.

Keep it simple

So why not keep it super simple and minimal to give guests and yourselves a refreshing break for a moment. This design by SYNArchitecture may seem a little extreme, but imagine the exhalation as you enter into a space dominated by, well, space. You’ll just need to keep those extra bottles stored somewhere…
