Go bold with your downstairs cloakroom

Does the thought of overhauling your interior style give you that sinking feeling? Does redecorating leave you flushed? Why not aim small and make a big impact, going bold with your downstairs toilet?

It’s always tempting to decorate your home in the same colours throughout, but this can restrict our creativity. While the main reception rooms should echo your chosen interior style, the downstairs loo is the perfect place to let your imagination loose.

Below, we will explore some ways to take back creative control in your home and go bold with your downstairs toilet;

Add colour

Go for a strong colour scheme that challenges the rest of your interior, adding some fun to a smaller space. Try painting a feature wall for a contemporary aesthetic.

Add depth

Add interest with shelving and wall ornamentation – shelving also frees up space as opposed to storage.

Cover all senses

Splash out on some posh soap, pair it with a hand cream, and make the room oxymoronically scented with a reed diffuser.


There’s no better decoration than a mirror, and adding one is essential to help brighten the space up while offering your guests a chance to check their hair. Nothing will give the illusion of extra space like the reflection of a mirror.
