Tips & Advice

Small bathroom reno tips

Have you got a small bathroom in your house? Perhaps it’s there as an ensuite to compliment other bathrooms that may be dotted across the house. Or maybe you live in a smaller inner-city unit.  Either way, if your smaller bathroom is calling out for attention, then we can help with these design tips.

Even though your bathroom may be a small space, there are some clever tips and tricks you can use that will make you forget your bathroom’s size.


Modern furniture & floating vanities

Bathroom Sink

There’s no reason why your bathroom sink and toilet should be old-fashioned and out-of-style. Treat your bathroom, your household, and your guests by updating the old to the new.  A floating vanity saves space and this is something you should explore.

Big mirrors


It’s no surprise that mirrors are a walkway to other dimensions.  Adding a few large mirrors to your bathroom will show different dimensions of your bathroom and it will look bigger than it actually is.

De-clutter with cupboards

Chic modern bathroon detail

A smaller bathroom can look cluttered with just a few things lying around.  Having a modern cupboard in your small bathroom will mean you can de-clutter the environment.

Corner sink

Because of the small bathroom size, it’s good to install a nice corner-sink in your bathroom so you can swiftly move around the room without bumping into things.  A bonus tip is to install this corner sink directly across from the toilet.

Small shower

Hotel bathroom

If you are going to install a shower in your small bathroom, make sure it is only big enough for one person. This will save you space in the bathroom. Also be sure to avoid installing shower doors that open out in your small bathroom.  An old fashioned shower curtain may solve this issue.

Sliding doors

Modern en suite bathroom

Have you ever walked into a bathroom and you have to uncomfortably squeeze in while you close the door? This can easily be avoided with a simple slide-entry door.



Your small bathroom should have one colour as a theme.  Having one colour not only looks stylish it also makes your space look larger than it is.



One of the best things you can do in your small bathroom is creating built-in cupboards like you can see in the image above. This will save so much space in your small bathroom. Bonus points if you do the same with your shower!

From the first phone call Curran plumbing services were professional, showed up on time for scheduled quote , then me updated when the job was going to be completed . On the day of install all of the staff were well trained , well spoken and installed my new instantaneous gas hot water system like they were installing it in their own home . The quality in detail to make sure I was satisfied didn’t go unnoticed. At the end of the day I feel like I have gained a plumber for life . 100% recommend.
