Is the fact that you have a small bathroom getting you down? If your bathroom is cramped, boring and not a pleasant place to be, then it may be time to consider a revamp! In this Ideabook, we consulted some expert bathroom designers for ideas to make your old bathroom exude luxury and elegance again, despite its compact size. A fancier bathroom with a comfortable bathtub, rain shower or some dramatic lighting awaits you—so let’s get started!

1. Practical layout

The layout of a bathroom is important in ensuring that it's neat and comfortable. This is especially vital in a small bathroom. In this image we see that the sink, toilet and shower are all located against one wall of the bathroom, while there is more than enough storage for towels and products too.

2. The wall choice

Your shower may already be a tight squeeze, so adding extra storage in the form of shelves for your products and accessories will just take up more room. You may want to try adding storage within your shower alcove by creating some cavities in the walls. These will act as shelves, but won't impact on the limited space.

3. Magic mirror

A large mirror is one of the easiest ways to enhance space in the bathroom. When pairing a large mirror with some brilliant lighting, the illusion of a spacious environment is even more fantastic.

4. Length-wise

A bathroom may be small in width, but can make up for space in length. This Moroccan choice is an awesome example of a long bathroom that is stylish, comfortable and attractive. By keeping the shower in the corner, the rest of the bathroom will be feel gloriously spacious.

5. Consistency

Another gorgeous way to create an amazing bathroom is by including colours that work well together. This doesn’t mean opting for neutral tones only—go for a neutral or lighter colour with a bright accents for a cheery effect.

6. Vibrant feeling

Adding a magical touch of vibrant colour is an awesome way to bring life to a small bathroom. The walls here feature unique and funky hues so bold, you won’t even notice the compact size! The mirror may be small, but the lighting choice is perfect for this bathroom that doesn’t receive any natural light.
