How To Design A Small Bathroom

We often find it challenging to design a bathroom which does not give us much space to work with. However, with the right combination of creativity and materials you can make optimum use of the available space to build yourself an eye catching bathroom.


Colours can change the whole look and feel of a place in a drastic fashion. A smaller space, be it a bathroom or any other room, always benefits from lighter brighter colours. Hence, it is advisable to stick to pale shades of beige, blue, pink, mint or even grey. Bright pastel shades also add a fun element to your bathroom which is quite a pick-me-up in the morning.

Keep in mind to coordinate the colour of your tiles with the colour on the walls.

Another tip to make your bathroom look spacious is to make use of translucent materials. Be it shower curtains or shelves and doors made of glass. If it becomes difficult to find glass doors that fit your space perfectly then you should try custom glass doors. There are various online stores which will customise the glass doors according to your needs and liking.

Shelves And Mirrors

Due to its light reflecting property, mirrors can make small spaces look much larger. Get a large, sleek mirror to fix on top of your sink or adorn a wall with a bunch of small mirrors in different shapes and sizes.

For shelves, go for quite a few near the shows area and a few near the sink to organise your products. Go for glass shelves to tie the entire look together and also make the area look spacious.


When it comes to fixtures, keep it minimal, streamlined and sleek. For sink, choose a modern pedestal sink instead of the bulkier traditional countertops. This is a great way to save space.

Go for toilet bowls which are fixed to the wall. Such designs look very modern and also make the area look larger.

You may skip the whole bathtub situation in a small bathroom. Instead go for a small shower area. It is advisable to go for glass does around the shower are to keep the entire bathroom dry and clean while you take your showers. It also let’s another person use the bathroom while you enjoy your long shower. Glass doors are also easy to clean and the textured ones make the look of water stains pretty unnoticeable. Make sure to get custom sliding glass shower doors. Sliding doors eat up a lot less space when compared to the traditional doors. You can get them in different textures, colours and designs to lift the entire look of your bathroom.


Scented candles are a great idea for bathrooms when you are aiming for minimal decor. Keep a few on the shelves and light them occasionally to fill the area with some relaxing aroma.

Adding a hint of greenery with small succulents and cacti is a very tasteful way to lift the look of the area. These plants not only look cute in but are also very easy to maintain.

Framing your favourite quote or art piece and hanging it on the wall is a great way to fill you with some positivity while you take your morning shower.
