    Embrace smallnessThe impulse in a compact bathroom is to go for white to visually expand its boundaries. This compact shower room shows how dark walls and floor can create a cocooning feel instead. If you’re repeating the scheme, keep the ceiling light so the room feels lofty, and hang a large mirror.What makes your bathroom feel warm? Tell us or show us in the Comments section.

    Choose the right tilesThere are practicalities to consider when choosing your wet room tiles. You must be sure they won’t become slippery when wet, so check the slip resistance rating with your supplier. Also be aware that some tiles are very porous and require regular maintenance and resealing.

    Choose the right colour and type of lighting‘The colour of your lighting, and the way it renders colour, is very important – you don’t want to look a funny shade when you glance in the mirror!’ says Melanie Shaw. ‘In general, I would recommend a warm white hue for bathroom lighting. But remember that one manufacturer’s warm white may be different from another’s.’You also want to make sure you choose the right type of bulb. When deciding between halogen or LED, there are pros and cons to both. In the past, halogen lighting has been perceived as offering better lighting properties, but LEDs have evolved to the point where they can now offer an equivalent quality of light. LEDs are also dimmable and highly energy-efficient. ‘The other advantage of LEDs is that you don’t have to change the bulbs, making them an especially good choice for older people,’ points out Carolyn Trevor.

And the soft washes of light simply add to the spa-like ambience.See more spa-inspired schemes

    Light it up Lighting is key in a small wet room, especially when surfaces are dark and dramatic. Choose a mix of ceiling lights and wall fixtures that create a wash of light for subtle light levels that produce a warm, cocooning effect.Discover how to use coloured lights in your bathroom

    Create a wet roomA wet room is a brilliant space saver, needing only a simple glass screen to keep water off the loo and basin. The key to success is tanking, a process that seals the whole room to prevent leaks (and must be done by a professional). The floor is then a single expanse, with only a drainage hole visible, giving a space-enhancing seamless look.Check out wet rooms for every bathroom style
