Think smart with a narrow space: In a narrow room, the best way of using the space can be to install a walk-in shower that fills the full width of the bathroom. But what if you have a window? The clever design shown here includes a frosted back panel that protects the window from splashes and provides privacy, but still lets in plenty of natural light. A ceiling-mounted shower and frameless shower door complete the sleek look.

Add a hint of colour to a white suite: While a white bathroom suite is the best choice for opening up a small space, it can sometimes feel a little stark if the whole room is white. That’s why a hint of colour on the walls is the perfect compromise: light enough to create an airy feel, but with bags more character. Here, the storage alcoves were built from tongue-and-groove panelling, then painted in white to contrast with the raspberry walls and striking cobalt-blue tiles.

I sold many items on Gumtree, Facebook and eBay, which boosted our budget! They then made sure that everything had its place, in order to keep the space calm long term. This shelving unit not only helps to organise the bedroom, but its light profile means that, despite its size, it does not encroach on the rest of the space. ‘It’s great for our art books and other bits and pieces, while the white storage boxes add uniformity,’ say the couple.

Play with the boundaries of perception by tiling the side of your bath and the wall with the same design – it makes it hard to distinguish where each begins, thereby making your space feel larger. Marble is particularly effective here, as it looks almost like one huge sheet and the individual tiles aren’t very obvious.

Kitchens are often light and bright, so this is definitely a kitchen colour scheme that will stand out.

White furnishings will help to bounce light around the room, meaning you can inject personality with a few interesting accessories. Lighting is key. Include task lighting next to mirrors and dimmable options in alcoves or behind a bath to create drama and mood. Make sure all light fittings have the correct IP rating for safe use in wet areas.

In terms of the look and feel of the space, Scandi influences were the starting point for much of the decor in the bedroom – muted tones and natural materials are prominent throughout. ‘We used magnetic plaster, which is a type of plaster that allows you to turn any wall into a magnetic surface. It’s great because you can hang anything, from pictures to shelves, on it by adding a magnetic strip to the back.

Not only does the natural stone in this family bathroom add a spa-style touch, but the continuous run of tiles creates a spacious feel, along with the wall-hung fixtures that save on floor area. If natural stone feels too neutral, you can easily pep it up with strong colour pops with your towels, storage and accessories – an on-budget way to add personality to your bathroom.

The new palette is a bit more restrained, with pale blues, greys and darker, inky shades proving a big hit – though that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with kitchen colour, as you will see in the schemes below. Tone is important too – even within the grey family, warmer greys create a different feel from blue-based shades of slate.

Let attractive sheets and stylish bed linen be the instruments of pattern, colour and texture. Keep the palette narrow and the prints controlled so it’s easy to mix and match across furniture without confusing the eye.
