Tips for styling small spaces

Size doesn’t matter when it comes to styling your bathroom

How to maximise space and style your small bathroom

Styling a small space can be a real head-scratcher. After all, how much can you really achieve when you’ve got barely any square footage to work with? Plus, you usually have far fewer design options because you have to ensure any styling decisions don't overcrowd the space.

If you’re struggling to make the most of your home’s small spaces – especially a small bathroom or kitchen – we get it! And that’s why we’re here to show you how it’s done. Learn how to find the perfect balance between functionality and aesthetics to create the illusion of more space.

How create the illusion of more space

Looking for one of the easiest ways to make a small bathroom instantly ‘bigger’? Install a wall-mounted basin. Wall basins are a great way to maximise floorspace, giving you the illusion of having a larger bathroom. By freeing up floorspace, you create an open and airy feel every time you open the door.

Another way to create this same illusion is to paint the walls in light shades. Lighter colours of whites, creams and greys reflect more light, making the room feel brighter and more spacious. You can also incorporate mirrors into a small bathroom, as they reflect light and will make the room feel bigger.

Be a multi-functional maestro

In a small kitchen, it's important to choose fixtures and products that are multi-functional. For example, CLARK's Monaco Single Bowl Overmount Sink is a versatile product that can be used for both food preparation and washing dishes and cutlery. Use the bamboo board to prepare meals and the stainless-steel colander to wash your fruits and vegetables.

Another multi-functional product is our CLARK's Round Toilet Roll Holder with Shelf. The shelf provides additional storage space for your tissues, soap or hand sanitiser, while the toilet roll holder keeps the most important item within easy reach – a useful addition to any small bathroom!

Investing in a few simple but helpfully versatile products, you can expand your smaller spaces and reduce the need for additional storage solutions. This will not only make the rooms more functional, but it will save you from the headaches of your previous workarounds – like being forced to keep your toilet paper rolls on the bathroom floor!

Sort your space issues with shelving

Did someone say shelving? It’s exactly what every small space needs. Installing a few shelves can provide you with much-needed storage space while also adding an attractive styling element. The CLARK Square Metal Shelf or CLARK Square Wall Caddy are great examples of stylish and functional shelving solutions. Store towels and toiletries in your small bathroom, or use it in jars or tea towels in your butler’s pantry.

Here's a tip: when it comes to choosing the right shelving for your small space, think about whether it’s going to take up too much ‘visual’ space, which is often just as important as ‘physical’ space. For example, having a floating, wall-mounted shelf is an excellent choice as it won’t take up valuable floorspace while it will also complement any other styling decisions you make. Open shelving like this also creates a sense of openness without adding clutter.

Styling a small space requires careful consideration and creativity, but it is possible to turn a tiny bathroom into a functional and stylish revelation. Find a CLARK stockist today and make that small space feel ten times bigger.
