How I styled my vintage bathroom

This is a short and sweet interiors piece! The reason for that is that we have a teeny tiny bathroom. In the coming months I’ll be showing you some epic bathroom pretty – copper tubs, distressed floors, accessories to die for – but today I’ll be telling you all about how to make the most of a little space.


The first thing you can change is the tiles. I bought my bathroom tiles from – they’re from seller Welbeck tiles but there’s a huge selection on the site if these ones don’t suit your scheme.


The second thing I would suggest is getting a large mirror. Nothing creates the illusion of space like a mirror. I bought this baby on sale for £15 at TK Maxx. It has a little shelf which is great for storage (as long as you don’t put anything too heavy on it).


Another way to make a room seem bigger is to have light floors. Our house isn’t particularly spacious, so we have white floorboards. Not only do they create great lines that give the illusion of length, but they reflect light back into the room and make spaces seem airy and roomy.


An easy way to give character to a small space is through accessories – adorable bins, cute toilet roll holders, even a new toilet seat. Our shower curtain was from M&S a couple of years ago. While they don’t sell it any more, there are plenty like it on the market. This beauty from Sainsbury’s is just £10!

Wall plaques and tin pictures that won’t get damaged in a bathroom can really brighten up little rooms. One other way to accessorise and save space is to put your bubble baths and shampoos into clean crystal decanters. That means you can stock up without having to store extra stuff. Perfect!
