Beautify your bathroomMixing styles doesn’t have to mean just country and contemporary. The owners of this bathroom, which has a Victorian-style, high-cistern loo, have introduced an art deco mood with black and white fan wallpaper. This simple panel doesn’t jar, as the rest of the room is plain white with black accessories, yet is enough to give the room an extra dimension.

White it outA fully-fitted, panelled bath is a boon in the traditionally small UK bathroom as it slots nicely along one side of a narrow room. To enhance the feeling of space, stick to a largely white colour palette, but don’t be afraid to add a fabulous feature wall to put your own stamp on the décor.See 10 small but striking ways to boost your bathing space

Know your taps1 Pillar tapsOften found in traditional-style bathrooms, pillar taps come in pairs and consist of one tap for cold water and another for hot. Operated by either a rotating handle or lever, pillar taps require two tap holes in the basin.

Eye-catching patterns This bathroom’s design may seem basic, but notice how the bold wallpaper on even just one wall takes it from boring to exciting!Find more bathrooms with patterned wallpaper or multi-coloured walls.

Get wallpaperingWallpaper had a big resurgence in the 1920s, with Parisian and German interior design houses being hugely influential. Vibrant and colourful designs were everywhere, featuring herringbone, shell motifs and even exotic depictions of jungle scenes. After the Great Depression of the 1930s, wallpapers became more subdued, with green, brown and charcoal hues prevailing, while patterns became smaller and more geometric. Although not many original wallpapers survived, there’s a huge number of reproduction designs influenced by the era. These busy patterns looks great on just one wall or above panelling. If you’re on a tight budget, just order a sample piece, or a length of fabric, and have it framed.

Measure the space – properly!Measure your room as precisely as you can and, when planning your layout, don’t forget to allow for tiling, panelling, towel rails etc, which will all make the space smaller. It doesn’t seem like a lot, but 10mm can be the difference between a basin being perfectly in line with an edge to having it jutting out ever so slightly, forever to niggle you.Small or narrow bathrooms are the trickiest. In this slim room, appropriate-sized pieces have been chosen, so the space doesn’t feel cramped. Make sure you allow room to stand comfortably at the basin and enough width for the toilet, so you’re not squished up against the bath. If you have any cupboards, then make sure there’s room to open them, and check the door doesn’t bang into anything. A useful tip for small bathrooms is to rehang the door to open outwards, giving you a little more space inside.Check out how to plan your bathroom effectively, whatever space you have

Say yes to panellingA vintage-style wallpaper teamed with tongue-and-groove panelling gives this compact bathroom a cosy feel. Also note the toilet with a high cistern – a classic heritage design. Swap slick modern spots for a more decorative chandelier, like this brass number, to keep things traditional.
