Small Bathroom Trends 2021

Having a small bathroom may not be ideal, however that doesn’t mean you can’t make alterations to that bathroom and change the way it functions or even how it looks. Stylistically designing your bathroom can be challenging for anyone, this intensifies when you have less space to work with. Below I have included some ideas that can help you make the most of your bathroom space and small bathroom trends taking over this year.

Space Saving

Creating space within your bathroom setup is vital. A bathroom overfilled or cramped isn’t practical and can also create a bit of an eye sore in your home. There are multiple directions you can take to combat this. First of all, take into consideration the size of your furniture and purchase furniture that can be hung on the wall. This is a brilliant way to create floor space and is becoming a great minimalist trend this year. Wall mounted furniture comes in many shapes, colours and designs that can complement the look of your bathroom greatly. Find the balance between size practically and image.

Open Plan and Corner Ceramics

Another trend that is becoming more and more popular as the year goes on is an open plan setup with cornered ceramics. An open plan setup involves getting rid of a bath and replacing it with a frameless stand alone shower, again freeing up more floor space and really pushing that popular minimalistic image. Corner ceramics will also allow you to utilise your room space as much as possible. Whether you decide to corner your bathroom sink or toilet, plumbing either gives you so much more room to play with and can allow you to think about decorating your bathroom further with plants or accessories.


Decoration can rejuvenate any room and it’s no different for your bathroom. Light fresh colours are in at the moment and are very popular across tiled or half tiled walls. Colour coordinating your bathroom basin, toilet and other appliances is a great idea. Black bathroom products have massively jumped in popularity as of late. Consider doing the same and the imagery will work really well with your light coloured walls. The black products won’t prevent the illusion of space that the room receives from the bright coloured walls and hanging a mirror will help with that too whilst rounding off the entire room.

Underfloor Heating

When space isn’t your bathroom’s strong point almost everything starts to feel like clutter and space wasters. Depending on the age of your home, there’s a high chance you have one or two big clunky radiators right next to your bathroom wash basin. In a small bathroom it can be very worthwhile to remove the radiators completely and replace them with a smaller, thinner heated towel rail. They are slim, great looking and massively popular with most modern day bathrooms. You can also have under floor heating installed which can warm up your bathroom alongside the towel rail. This will achieve a less cluttered bathroom with a designer look and most importantly nice warm feet on a cold day.

The challenge of a small bathroom can certainly be overcome if you bear these tips in mind.
