Bathroom Makeover Ideas For Small Bathrooms

Little miracles for smaller bathrooms

Creating your dream bathroom in even the smallest of spaces has never been easier.

Your bathroom should be so much more than just a functional space you pass through to do your ablutions. It should be a beautiful sanctuary from the world which can help put a spring in your step ahead of a busy day, or offer you much needed downtime to relax and refresh. We’d all love to have a sprawling, luxury bathroom in the opulent style of a 5-star hotel with sweeping marble and all mod-cons, but most of us simply don’t have access to that kind of space – or budget!

If you have a smaller bathroom, it can be quite challenging to balance good use of space, functionality and style all at the same time. However, with some clever use of our innovative projects, there is absolutely no reason why you should settle for second best just because your bathroom isn’t as large as you might wish. You’ll be amazed at just how much you can achieve with very little, and all without the need to fundamentally change the whole layout of the room.

A first, great step is to focus on the functional aspects of your bathroom, as this will allow you to maximise the space, create a better experience overall, and free up room for more aesthetic design features. For example, improving or replacing your cabinets with a more streamlined design, complete with more ample storage options, will keep your bathroom essentials neatly organised and out of sight, creating more space elsewhere. It could also be a great opportunity to match the colours and styles of your bathroom cabinets with the bigger design picture you have in mind for later.

Also, traditional shower enclosures can take up a lot of valuable floor space and make the room feel cramped, making a small bathroom makeover all the more difficult. A sleeker walk-in shower design is a lot less bulky and could help you to create a more seamless and open feel in your bathroom. Additionally, as our shower panels and walls are available in a variety of finishes, including marble, granite, and quartz, this could be a solution that is both very practical, and allow you to create a luxurious spa-like atmosphere in even the smallest of bathrooms.

Once your bathroom is ready to add some stunning design features, you can then consider changing up your countertops and tiling with some of our quartz or marble effect surfaces. These light-coloured finishes reflect natural light and help to brighten up the space, making it feel larger and more inviting, not to mention adding a certain sophisticated luxury and elegance which will make your bathroom a true joy to be in.

If you want to elevate that new look further, or still create a luxury, high-end look without replacing all your surfaces, how about adding a little sparkle and magic with some glass mosaics tiles? Created exclusively for Granite & TREND Transformations in our artisan workshops in Italy, our glass mosaics can be installed in an almost endless variety of colours and patterns to suit your existing space. Great for adding some light and delicate touches above your sinks, or for an artistic feature wall display in your shower or above the bath to add a bit of twinkly magic.

Of course, every bathroom is unique, and every sense of what is beautiful and stylish is different, and what works for one bathroom may not necessarily work for another. Which is why everything we do here at Granite & TREND Transformations is about creating a bespoke solution which is as unique as you, and your bathroom. Our extensive range of products, which can be tailored to exactly suit your needs, means every small bathroom makeover is a special design journey all in itself.
