How to make a bathroom look bigger?

Category: Choosing your tiles

It’s commonly thought that small tiles in a small bathroom work best to make the space appear larger, however, the numerous grouting lines can, in fact, make the space seem much smaller.

To create the illusion of a larger space, try our top tips.


Using plain-coloured floor tiles are the ideal solution to make your bathroom look more spacious.


Create a back splash

One of the best ways of making a small room look bigger is using a back splash. The continuous design will keep the eyes busy as they travel through the space. To keep costs down, you can use more detailed, expensive tiles for the feature and the plainer tiles for the majority of the space.


Gloss tiles

Gloss tiles contribute to the illusion of space reflecting the light in the room. For extra points – use them as a feature or back splash opposite a window.


Go vertical

Placing rectangular tiles vertically extends your field of vision so helps to give the impression of more space.
