A clever trick to making a small bathroom look bigger is to use the same tiles on the walls and the floor. Not only does the natural stone in this family bathroom add a spa-style touch, but the continuous run of tiles creates a spacious feel, along with the wall-hung fixtures that save on floor area. If natural stone feels too neutral, you can easily pep it up with strong colour pops with your towels, storage and accessories – an on-budget way to add personality to your bathroom.
If you prefer formal over slouchy and laid-back, swap coastal scenes for classic striped wallpaper and ease back on the shabby finishes. If you can’t give up the glamour, swap matt cottons for colonial-style black accents, sparkling glassware and pure linen. Bright whites, faded denim blues and a few pops of scarlet create an easy-going but quintessentially British seaside feel. Look for bathroom storage with a rustic, weathered finish in a pale palette and keep it fun and quirky in a family bathroom with plenty of themed accessories and motifs.
Wallpaper will make a statement in any room and the bathroom is no exception. A downstairs cloakroom is a prime space to use wallpaper, as bathrooms with a shower or bath will require specialist paper to prevent steam damaging it. Opt for a unique, bold or interesting print to maximise the impact in a small space like this. Fit a sheet of Perspex as a splashback behind the basin to prevent water damaging the wallpaper.
Get a cheerful look using aquatic brights and create a dynamic scheme by covering a feature wall in a reef-inspired design – a coral print will bring back that holiday feeling. Combine energising turquoise and verdant green for a vibrant, modern look. A bold palette like this lends itself to a scheme with a Miami beach vibe – think modern, stylish furniture and glamorous, white, high-gloss finishes. Calm the lively pattern by painting the adjacent walls in a soothing palette of white. Finish off the look with fabulous sea finds. Position them organically as though they’ve washed up on shore amongst coral and sand-beaten glass, as well as watery glazes and sea urchins for a super-chic stylised look.
