Easy ideas to make a small bathroom look bigger

When it comes to bathrooms, every little bit of space counts - from sink space to storage areas to bathtubs and showers, you want to ensure that every cm counts.

There are a range of tips and tricks you can use to make your bathroom seem bigger than it appears and we have collated a few of the best below. If you need any further help, give Mastercraft Tiling & Bathroom Renovations a call on 0435 243 235 now.


Easy bathroom tips

Floor to ceiling tiles

One of the best ways to make your bathroom look bigger than it is to have floor to ceiling tiles. This gives the illusion of a higher ceiling, as well as no 'dividing lines' caused by tiles finishing halfway up the wall.

Light colours

This is one of the most well-known tips - light colours automatically make a room appear larger than it is, which is exactly what a small bathroom wants.


Wall hung vanity

A wall hung vanity, which is sometimes known as a floating vanity, allows for storage whilst still having some flooring making an appearance. This makes a room feel more open, as well as allowing for more feet space - this makes a huge difference!

Square set ceiling

When it comes to ceilings, if you want to achieve the appearance of a larger bathroom use a square set cornice instead of a decorative cornice.

Fixed glass panel

Another great idea is a fixed glass panel as opposed to a shower curtain - this allows for your entire bathroom space to be visible, offering the illusion of a bigger space (especially when you are standing in the shower). If privacy is a problem, the glass doesn't have to be completely clear - there are frosted and tinted glass options too.


Tile layouts and direction of lay

Finally, the orientation of the tiles in a bathroom affect the way a room is viewed. Rectangular tiles should always be positioned vertically to make your ceiling look higher or positioned horizontally to make your bathroom look wider.

    Master Craft have just finished tiling our pool deck and we are extremely satisfied with the quality of their work. The Tiler, Dave, was efficient and on time and his attention to detail was excellent. We would use them again and are happy to recommend their services.
