Big Ideas for Small Bathrooms

As a proud Glasgow-based Bathroom Fitting Company, here at Clan Property Solutions we specialize in reinvigorating and revitalizing tired old bathroom spaces.  A few things all old house lovers – and Glasgow residents – are familiar with when living in tenement flats are the drafty windows, somewhat imperfect plumbing, squeaky and creaking floorboards and of course small bathrooms.  The curse of the small bathroom seems to strike all over Glasgow, leaving many people unhappy with their current bathroom space.  Not to worry though, we’re here to provide you with some handy tips and tricks to make the most of your bathroom space and to breathe some life back into this problematic area.

Whilst new build home bathroom spaces have almost doubled in size over the last few decades, old tenement-style flats have retained the smaller – slightly cramped – 5 by 8 feet bathroom space. We’re here to provide you with some useful tricks to combat the claustrophobia by limiting the physical space taken up by your bathroom necessities.  Plus, with the right colour scheme and lighting, you can create the illusion of a roomy and welcoming bathroom environment.

Sometimes transforming a small bathroom is easier than you might think.  Lighting can go a long way to creating the illusion of a larger, inviting bathroom space.  Adding task and ambient lighting will help to brighten the room and provide a pleasant atmosphere.  Similarly, using continuing horizontal lines within your tiling can add to the illusion of a larger space.

If you’re looking to change your bathroom with modern accessories, using a large frameless mirror also helps to trick the eye into thinking your bathroom is larger.  Creating attention-commanding focal points in smaller spaces can also help to make the bathroom appear larger.  We really like the new trend of free standing ladder towel racks, as they really help to create the sense of vertical space in smaller, enclosed bathrooms.

If you’re looking to completely renovate your bathroom, we’re experts in all areas of the trade and can provide you with a truly unique bespoke service.  If you’re interested in discussing how you can begin your own Clan Property Solutions journey today contact us at or visit us in our Glasgow-based store.
