Design Inspiration for Small Bathrooms

Are you searching for small bathroom design ideas to make the most of your space? You aren’t alone!


When it comes to small bathrooms, the key to creating a stylish and functional space lies in embracing simplicity, and as a result, many are adopting a minimalist approach. There are a whole host of clever tricks and aesthetic choices you can make to enhance your small bathroom design.


The minimalist bathroom has undeniably been one of the most popular trends in recent years, and it doesn’t show any signs of backing down in 2024. As we step ever closer to the new year, Triton Showers leads the way in providing innovative solutions that align perfectly with the latest design trends.


Triton Small Bathroom IdeasAshley Cooper, marketing director at Triton Showers, dives into some of the benefits of taking a minimalist bathroom approach: “A minimalist aesthetic is perfectly suited to the bathroom setting, where a crisp, functional design can help create a retreat where you can switch off from the world. Simplicity is key with this look – and can be achieved in a number of ways, from your colour palette to your bathroom fittings.”


Let’s explore some compact bathroom ideas to inspire the transformation of any small showering space, converting it into a haven of style and efficiency.

1. Neutral Colour Palette

Opting for a neutral colour palette can instantly make a small bathroom feel more spacious and serene. If you’re concerned about your bathroom space looking clinical, opt for off-whites, surfaces with texture, and finishes that mimic natural stone materials such as marble, concrete, and sandstone.


To add a touch of sophistication and create a cohesive look, think about incorporating black fixtures and fittings. Black accents, like shower heads, taps, and shower screens, can tire the design elements together, adding a modern and elegant flair to your small bathroom.


A black electric shower unit will add a bold accent, whilst providing you with an efficient way to heat and use water – helping you save money.

Maximise your small bathroom’s potential by ensuring you’re choosing space-saving fixtures. Selecting a streamlined shower, like ENVi®, will keep any shower area looking neat and tidy, without impeding on the shower area.


When choosing your shower type, consider pairing your model with a waterfall shower head to reduce the need for bulky wall fixtures. This will allow you to maximise the space available. Not only will a waterfall shower head elevate your showering routine, but it will also complement the bathroom’s aesthetic, adding a sleek edge to your showering space.

3. Clutter Free Space

A clutter-free bathroom is essential for a minimalist aesthetic. The range of bathroom storage is huge, and there is a design or style to suit every bathroom. From under-sink storage and shower caddies to mirrored cupboards.


Ashley comments “Considering storage in the early planning stages will ensure all your lotions and potions have a designated place and don’t impede on the space”.

Keeping items that aren’t used daily in a nearby cupboard or drawer keeps the shower area looking neat and tidy. There are even wall-mounted solutions to keep bottles off the floor.

4. Utilise Mirrors

It’s no secret that strategically positioning mirrors in small spaces can give the illusion of a larger area. Positioning lighting near a mirror can also help to bounce the light around, making your compact bathroom space seem more spacious.


Whether you only have space for one mirror or can fit two or three, go big, go bold, and make a statement to enhance the space you’ve got to work with.

5. Tiling Tricks to Enhance Space

A clever trick to make a small bathroom look bigger is to use the same tiles on the walls and the floor. Not only does it add a spa-like chicness to the space, but also blends the boundaries of where the room starts and ends.


If rainfall shower heads aren’t your style, why not opt for a minimal mixer shower, keeping controls at your fingertips, without any bulky fittings ruining the aesthetic of your shower space?


In the quest for small bathroom design excellence, Triton Showers seamlessly blends innovation with minimalist aesthetics. The neutral colour palette serves as a canvas, with the integration of black fixtures and fittings adding sleek accents to the space.
