In a small bathroom it’s important that there’s plenty of bright lighting, especially if the room doesn’t have a window for a natural light source. If your small bathroom is in a converted loft space get a skylight put in to flood the room with essential light. Instead of a central light fitting install halogen or LED spotlights into the ceiling to provide a much brighter effect.

Top Tip: An illuminated mirror also provides you with light so you can see what you’re doing when applying make-up or shaving.
