Plan your layout carefully
Yes, it can take a little more thought and care to plan than a bigger bathroom, but the plus side is that it can be more straightforward and easier to make decisions too.
One key to remember with a small bathroom is that it’s not all about fitting in your bathroom ware. Creating a space you’re comfortable in and can move about is even more important. Think just as carefully about the space you leave and use as well as the space you fill.

Decide where you want to make an impact
A small bathroom can still have a big wow-factor if you choose one feature carefully.
Whether it’s a full feature tile wall, a more subtle decoration in a strategic spot or even an intricate feature floor, the right feature draws the eye exactly where you want it.
Here’s a little secret – your feature doesn’t even have to be tiles! The right freestanding bath, vanity or mirror can make a striking feature too.
One real advantage of small bathrooms is that because you don’t need as many tiles or as much bathroom ware as a bigger bathroom, you can afford to splurge on the items that will make the most difference. Or you can save your pennies and create an amazing bathroom on a budget
Focus on a single style
Because you don’t have to think about as much as in a bigger, more complicated bathroom, a small bathroom is actually a great opportunity to really focus on a single style or aesthetic.
Fewer elements means great focus, and a better chance of creating a space that is in total harmony.
