How to Make a Small Bathroom Feel Luxurious

Have you recently thought about redecorating your bathroom to make it look and feel luxurious? You might think that you need to spend a lot of money to achieve this, but in reality, you don’t have to! All you need is to have the right techniques, and you can make your small bathroom look and feel as if it’s straight out of a five-star hotel. So, how do you do this?

Despite having a small bathroom, here are four ways to give it a luxurious feel:

1. It All Starts With Lighting

Remember that lighting will always make a significant difference to any space! Start off by focusing on your lighting, but stray away from the traditional light bar and think sconces that you can place on either side of your mirror. If you have space, consider hanging a pendant light that will add a more dramatic effect to the bathroom. With the right lighting fixtures, you can even make your bathroom look and feel more spacious!

2. Think of Incorporating Colors

When it comes to colours, white cabinets and countertops are classic fixtures that will give an elegant vibe. To make a bathroom feel luxurious, stick to light neutral paint colours like grey because it has become a go-to bathroom colour for many homes. The colour is also soothing and easy to match, but you should stick to warm greys to keep the room from looking cold. Pairing it with wood trim or vanity can definitely make your space look like a high-end hotel bathroom!

For a spa-like feel, a monochromatic colour scheme will do the trick—you don’t need to stick to neutral colours for this. Bold colours like blue in varying shades can give that relaxing feel that is perfect for the spa-like theme. Start off with soothing colours and add lighter and darker shades to create layering that will give it more depth.

Adding a pop of colour is also highly recommended! Yet, you don’t need a lot of colours. Just choose one colour for an accent and repeat it throughout the space.

3. Bring the Outdoors Inside

Add some outdoor-like elements into your bathroom for a more luxurious feel. You can even allow lots of natural light to come through, and of course, bring in some nature by adding some big and small plants. However, make sure that they can thrive in your bathroom’s environment. You can consider snake plants, which are low-maintenance and can thrive almost anywhere!

4. Paint Some Furniture

Another simple way to freshen up your bathroom and give it a modern vibe is to paint some furniture, which will be an excellent weekend DIY project for you. Perhaps, you can paint that old dresser to breathe back life into it! Fortunately, you can find many DIY tutorials online that can help you. Additionally, this can save you a lot of money instead of buying new pieces of furniture.

5. Update the Fixtures

One easy way to transform the look of your bathroom is to update the fixtures. Your vanities, taps, and shower heads may seem like small inconsequential details, but the truth is that choosing new colors and materials can do wonders to the luxury factor. Consider brushed metals in a complimentary color and paint the cabinets of your vanity to match.

Aside from lending new life to the look of your bathroom, new fixtures often improve water efficiency and increase the value of your home. Have your local plumber exchange your old fixtures for new modern ones and enjoy a fresh luxurious look!


These are just five simple tips to bring a luxurious feel into your small bathroom – making your bathroom look and feel as if it’s straight out of a five-star hotel isn’t as impossible as you might have expected. In fact, all you need is some basic ideas, a little bit of elbow grease, and perhaps a skilled plumber!

    Ian Bridger, Byron

  • Our hot water system was being unpredictable and unreliable, and we weren't sure what the issue was... Conor had it sorted in no time. He was responsive, efficient and helpful - even in the midst of the pre-Splendour rush... We are now enjoying lovely hot water. Thank you!!

    Jacky Morris, Suffolk Park

  • When we recently had a pipe blockage in our investment property in Ballina and our tenant sent us photos we were organizing the fix from NZ. Thankfully we contacted Fantastic Plumbing who located the blockage, jetted it until the pipe was cleared and …. CLEANED UP!!! We were in the process of trying to get a cleaner to the property when Conor sent us photos of the completed work. After speaking to out tenant who couldn’t be happier we saved on the cleaner! If you want no hassels in plumbing do yourself a favour and call Fantastic Plumbing.
