Having a small bathroom doesn’t mean that you can’t create a bathroom with plenty of style, but they do require careful planning and good attention to detail. By making sure that you have a good layout and design means that you will make the best use of available space in asmall bathroom.
Before choosing any new products have a good think about what you would like to include in your bathroom and think about your lifestyle and how you use the space; do you want to include a bath but no shower enclosure, a shower enclosure but no bath or if you don’t want to compromise on either you could opt for a shower bath to combine bathing and showering.
Here are some useful tips for making the most of a small bathroom:
Make sure you accurately measure the space and double check yourmeasurements as every little bit counts in a small bathroom.
Choose simple, minimalistic fittings to create a sleek, streamlined look and to ensure the bathroom looks organised, if there is too much going on it will only make a small bathroom feel even more cramped.
Make sure there is enough space to move freely about in, leave plenty of room between fixtures to create a sense of space.
Choose the right style of fittings for the available space such as a compact bath, sliding or bi-fold shower doors which won’t take up any extra space, compact toilets and basins with shorter projections, or even a corner toilet or basin to help maximise the space.
Wall-hung toilets and basins are also a fantastic option for small bathrooms as they free up floor space and provide the illusion of a larger room. Wall-hung items also make cleaning so much easier too.
Bathroom furniture is a must so you have somewhere to store toiletries away from view, as any clutter will just make the room appear smaller. There are plenty of compact pieces available featuring plenty of storage space combined with an integrated basin. Again wall-hung pieces will look ultra-modern and provide more floor space.
If you have the budget install under-floor heating as a radiator will only take up valuable wall space. You will still need somewhere to place towels though so choose a compact heated towel rail too.
Finally think about the finishing touches such as a large mirror to bounce the light around and to enhance the feeling of space.
