Why not swap your standard size bath for a smaller one?

This can really free up some much needed space and works well when an over the bath shower is used more frequently than the bath itself. There's some very stylish small baths available to suit all styles of bathrooms. Floating basins and toilets are bang on-trend and offer a clutter-free look, especially for the flooring area. Shelving is another great storage solution for small bathrooms. Rather than just putting up a plain shelf choose one which ties in with your bathroom's style.

Polished chrome fittings will also help move light around the room; keeping them bright and shiny will also provide an airiness to the room.
