When designing and creating your new bathroom, there are a lot of decisions to make. From the style of the bathroom fixtures themselves, to the colour scheme and layout, the choices you make will determine the appearance and the practicality of your bathroom.

That’s why we have produced this guide to help you avoid any design mistakes.
Design mistakes for small bathrooms
The most common design mistakes for small bathrooms include:
- Choosing a dark colour scheme- while black tiles and dark grey colours might be a popular choice for some bathrooms suites, it’s not always suitable for others. Unfortunately, small bathrooms with a dark colour scheme tend to look smaller and darker than they really are, which is the opposite of the visual effect you should be aiming to create.
- Not checking the size- most people think that a bath is a standard size. But this isn’t the case. Any bathroom fitting or fixture you order will need to be closely measured against your available dimensions. This is especially important in a small bathroom where space is crucial.
- Not using space saving shower doors- if you position a shower in a small bathroom, but don’t opt for folding or sliding shower doors, you could be creating an impractical space. Shower doors that open out into the room need additional floor space to move, and this can restrict your potential layout opportunities.
