Another option to help distract from the narrow aspect of the walls is to paint the floor or doors leading off from the hallway in a darker shade. This helps create a pathway through the narrow space and defines its features. Painting hallways can be more creative than you think!
Be smart with how you use colour
If you have a small bathroom it’s easy to think you have to paint it white to make it feel more spacious. However, as long as a bathroom is well lit, you can use colour in the same way as in any other room. In fact, we have some lovely bathroom themes and colour inspiration for you here.
Be brave with small bathroom paint ideas. Consider darker shades such as slate grey, rich purple or deep blue. They’ll add depth to help a small bathroom feel cocooning and, paired with crisp white ceramics, create a dramatic effect. Adding some trendy accessories or making a feature of the skirting boards can bring a bathroom to life without going over the top. Take a look at three of our favourite bathroom décor ideas here.
