Loos are not called the ‘smallest room’ for nothing. But no matter what colour you paint your cloakroom WC, lavatory, call it what you will – you’re not going to make it look much larger.
Instead, think BIG!
Plan some bold design ideas and make your look dramatic and memorable.
The latest trend for dark paint colours can work brilliantly in a loo. Choose the darkest shades possible to add real drama to the space. You could even paint it in a luxurious gloss to bounce the light around for some added ‘wow’ factor.
Another decorating trend, is decorating the ceiling, otherwise known as the ‘fifth wall’.
Wallpapering won’t be practical on the walls of a loo due to any water splashes from the basin, but be bold and wallpaper the ceiling and you’ll have added your own style statement.
Have some fun in this tiny space by adding some eye-catching artwork, pattern or an amusing quote.
Decorate with an oversized botanical print to give a quirky, fun feel to the space!
Not only practical, but tiles can make a big style statement in your ‘smallest room’.
Here is your opportunity to be daring and add some fabulous colour to your scheme, a pattern or unusual shape.
There’s an abundance of tile choices out there to make your little room really stand out!
The taps alone in your loo could be a design statement. Look out for the amazing matt black options, or if you want to add a ‘pop’ of colour choose from the many colour choices now available. Be bold and this will add a sense of style and individuality to this normally bland room.
Think BIG and your smallest room will have a HUGE impact
