Install more than one lighting circuit so that you can switch out the lights at the bedside without the need to cross the room. A dimmer will help create a serene evening ambience while dimmable downlighters work well when task lighting is needed. If space is limited, opt for a wall mounted lamp with an elegant shade like this one, freeing up space on the bedside table. Opt for a warm yellow quality of light, rather than a cool, blue light. ‘Make sure lighting helps to visually maximise the space too,’ advises Mary Barber-Fray of Mary Barber-Fray Interior Design. ‘For example, try lighting the narrower sides of the space to provide a sense of width, whether with wall lights or tiltable recessed spotlights. Choose lampshades that allow light to reflect upwards if you need to give some height to a low ceiling too.

If your bathroom is verging on the small side, consider using freestanding furniture that you can move around at a moment’s notice.

Balance a palette, be brave when using colour in a small bathroom – it’s a great opportunity to experiment with shades you may shy away from in larger rooms of the home.

Clever storage will stop everything from feeling cluttered and maintain a feeling of space and sophistication. On the other end of the decorating spectrum are hotel-style bathrooms. Choose a chic black and white bathroom peppered with soft grey for a fresh and modern take on monochrome. Alternatively, a wet room could really open up a small bathroom and create a feeling of luxury and spa-like Zen in your home.

Building the shelves into false walls that hide pipework is a clever use of a necessary feature. Also consider recessed light fittings – either spot or linear.

White furnishings will help to bounce light around the room, meaning you can inject personality with a few interesting accessories. Lighting is key. Include task lighting next to mirrors and dimmable options in alcoves or behind a bath to create drama and mood. Make sure all light fittings have the correct IP rating for safe use in wet areas.

Add a hint of colour to a white suite, while a white bathroom suite is the best choice for opening up a small space, it can sometimes feel a little stark if the whole room is white. That’s why a hint of colour on the walls is the perfect compromise: light enough to create an airy feel, but with bags more character. Here, the storage alcoves were built from tongue-and-groove panelling, then painted in white to contrast with the raspberry walls and striking cobalt-blue tiles.

Corner designs take up very little room – the door on this shower slides around the frame, so it doesn’t need any more space than what you can see. Square versions can be designed in a similar way – just avoid swinging or pivot doors, which will need extra room.
