Make space beneath the eaves, compact fittings are a big help in awkward-shaped loft spaces. Don’t worry about trying to fit a bath – go for a luxurious glass shower enclosure instead. It’s common with loft conversions and attics to box in parts of the room that have a reduced ceiling height for storage. But instead, why not look at ways to work around the reduced heights? A toilet or basin is a smart idea.

And furnish to scale, Large items of furniture can dwarf a small room so always buy pieces that suit the scale of your space. In a small bathroom, stick to the basics of a vanity unit and storage rack that you can either hang on the wall or rest on the edge of a bath. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t pack on the personality. Paint a vanity unit in your favourite colour and opt for patterned tiles on the floor.
There’s no need to keep a small bathroom plain and minimalist. If you love vintage style, then go for it. Clever storage will stop everything from feeling cluttered and maintain a feeling of space and sophistication. On the other end of the decorating spectrum are hotel-style bathrooms. Choose a chic black and white bathroom peppered with soft grey for a fresh and modern take on monochrome. Alternatively, a wet room could really open up a small bathroom and create a feeling of luxury and spa-like Zen in your home.
Make your bath the star, go for a freestanding bath – it can work really well as a focal point in a small space. They’re not all as big as you think and you can even buy smaller versions that will fit into tighter spaces. Add a pretty stencil on the wall above to draw the eye up and create the illusion of space.
