These design ideas will make the most of your cloakroom…
A cloakroom is just the place to experiment with a new style you might not be confident enough to try in a bigger room. A great area to express your individuality and creativity, a cloakroom can be a nod to your fun side, without changing the overall style of your house.
However, balancing bold design and function can be tricky in such a little space, but our experts are here to help you find the ideal style for your cloakroom, whether that’s big, bright colour or one statement feature to complement a clean and modern home.
If you are working with a small, possibly awkward cloakroom, clever storage ideas and space-saving fittings are essential. Fold away cabinets and chests or towel rails under basins are just two ideas that could save you valuable inches in a tiny cloakroom.
Use your cloakroom to express your individual style: Fun, bold wallpaper, a wall mural or a printed blind will add flair and creativity to your room. Add contemporary touches, such as statement fittings in bold chrome, or exposed brick walls for an edgy, industrial feel.
Create a big impact in a small cloakroom by choosing a vivid bloom design. Orange accessories continue the colour theme and a crisp white splashback adds a note of contrast.
Who said colour blocking was only for fashion? It’s also very effective in this small cloakroom. Simplicity is key with a dramatic red paint-effect splashback and square-edged white basin standing out against the grey wall. The same bold colours are repeated in the tiled floor to enhance the effect.

If you love bold patterns, a cloakroom is the perfect place to really go to town. This large-scale floral patterned wallpaper would suit a traditional or a contemporary scheme. Black painted panelling and simple white tiles create an eyecatching contrast.
