Sometimes the bathroom may be the only place where we get a moments peace to ourselves

So the design of the space is just as important as the main social areas. However, bathrooms tend to be some of the smallest spaces within the home.

Adriana Walter, Bathroom Designer at Elliotts Living Spaces in Lymington, looks at ways to make the most of your bathroom space.

Lighting and mirrors

Although natural light is best for making a space look bigger, not all bathrooms will have a window. However, clever use of an illuminated mirror will give you the extra light needed to help open the space. Colour changing mirrors are also available, which will help create different ambiances depending on how the space is being used.

One thing I have seen a lot when visiting bathrooms during the design process, is just how much impact a traditional hinged door can have on the space. Simply re-hanging the door can make a big difference to the space as you enter the room. Opting for a pocket door or a sliding door will give you much more space to work with and can completely transform the design of the room.

Shape is key

Curved shapes work better in small spaces, as they create a softer feel and lead you around the room. This works particularly well with taller features, such as shower enclosures.
