Incorporate these tips into your bathroom design and you will really maximise space in a tiny bathroom
Raise your bath
The more floor space you can see in a room the larger it will feel. Opt for a bath that is raised up on feet, like the roll-top bath shown above. By giving a glimpse of the floor beneath your bath, you will make your bathroom feel that little bit more spacious. You can get raised baths in both modern and traditional styles and even ones that you can paint to your own specification, just like the gorgeous azure one above.
Opt for a wall-hung basin
By keeping your basin clear of the floor, again you will be able to see all the floor space underneath it and again help make a small bathroom feel bigger.
Your wall will need to be strong enough to support the basin and you will need to conceal the pipework within the wall, which may necessitate building your wall out slightly, but overall you will still find the whole space feels more airy.
Opt for a unit with storage underneath too, like the unit above, and then you can keep most of your clutter hidden away. Less visible mess will enhance the feeling of space too.
Lift the toilet off the floor too
You can get wall-hung toilets as well and again by showing more floor area you make a small bathroom feel bigger than it is. Plus, all this raised sanitaryware makes the floor easier to keep clean too.
You will need to conceal the plumbing in the wall again, but what you lose in inches by moving the walls slightly in, you gain in visible floor area and spatial optical illusions.
Combine mirrors with storage
In a small bathroom you don't have much room for storage, so you need to incorporate it where you can. Look for a bathroom vanity unit that doubles up as a mirror. Not only will it hold storage, it will also reflect your space back at you, helping to maximise space in a tiny bathroom and bounce light around, so that it will feel brighter too.
In the basin vanity unit and mirror combo above, there is a mix of hidden and open storage. Display areas are great for attractive items, concealed areas are required for those less attractive toiletries.
Bring in reflective surfaces
Bring in reflective surfaces. Just like mirrors, all reflective surfaces, be that the surface of your bath, like the copper tub shown above, or your taps or glossy tiles will reflect your room back at you, making it feel deeper and more spacious. They will also make your bathroom feel brighter too.
Combine baths with showers
If you've no room for a separate bath and shower, you may not need to sacrifice either. Opt for a combi shower bath that allows you to have a quick shower before work and a more relaxing bath at the weekend. You can also get smaller than standard baths, if you don't have room for a full-size tub.

Go for single-mixer taps
Selecting, a single-mixer tap to fill your bath or basin, not only gives you more room on your basin top and around your bath, it also means less visual clutter in your bathroom, which again serves to make a small bathroom feel bigger and the whole space feels clearer and cleaner.
Choose large and light floor and wall tiles
While tiny patterned and colourful tiles are cute, large scale light-coloured floor and wall tiles are what really maximise space in a tiny bathroom. They are also cheaper to install, as there is less fiddly grouting to do.
Get your radiators multi-tasking
Choose a radiator that doubles up as a heated towel rail, so that it dries and stores your towels too. Select one with a built-in shelf, such as the Billy's Home Heated Towel Rail, Towel Warmer and Drying Rack, as shown above from Amazon, and you can store fresh towels on it too.
