Small Bathroom Makeover Tips

Thinking about the design of our new place and the room sizes this week. Particularly the bathrooms. Our family bathroom will be a decent size, but our downstairs shower room will be pretty cosy! So it’s going to be vital to make it look and feel bigger, so people actually use it and it’s not just a wasted room.

Decorating small rooms is never easy. You have to be particularly careful about the colours you choose, and the layout. If you get either of these elements wrong, you can easily end up making the space seem even smaller.

The entire space (which I think will be about 40-50sqm) will be on one level and therefore we’d like the same flooring throughout. In comes the question of the week…to parquet or not to parquet?…Continue reading
