Lower wattage provides a softer, relaxing ambience for guests. Find a colour temperature that makes the room feel inviting and illuminates guests in the most attractive way.
1. Go for light coloursThe best way to make a compact bathroom feel more spacious is by opting for neutral colours or light pastels for the floor and wall tiles. Light colours have the ability to reflect light, hence can make the space feel bigger.
