I think one of the hardest things to do is design a smaller bathroom. In a year where everyone is designing spa-inspired and luxury bathrooms, those stuck with compact bathrooms have to decide how to make the space work for them.
In a smaller bathroom environment you have to be so careful where you place your bathroom products and it’s essential you ensure that there are no products that obstruct other products. For example, if you choose a pivot or hinged shower door for a smaller bathroom, these doors could swing open and bang into your vanity or even toilet. If this happens the entry may be obstructed, this could leave you trying to squeeze into a small opening when getting in and out of your shower.
This is why when choosing shower enclosures in a small bathroom space, you should choose those that don’t swing open and there are a number of options available.
Sliding Door Shower Enclosures
The sliding door shower enclosures are one of the top choices when finding a shower door that doesn’t swing open. It helps you maximise your floor space in smaller bathrooms and they are modern and stylish in design.
The sliding door shower enclosure slides on a rail located at the top and bottom of the shower, they are easy for everyone in the family to use and reduce the risk of water leaking onto your floor while showering.
Bi-Fold Door Shower Enclosures
The bi-fold door shower enclosures are also a top choice. These shower doors also work on rail system like the sliding door shower enclosures except that they fold up, just like a concertina file.
The doors fold in towards the shower rather than out, so they don’t compromise your floor space. These shower enclosures are also sleek and stylish and blend in beautifully with any bathroom design.
Walk In Shower Enclosures
The walk in shower enclosures are a modern choice and unlike the sliding door shower enclosures, these do not have any doors but rather an opening with a lip that ensures water doesn’t leak out while showering.
Whichever you choose, whether it’s the sliding door shower enclosures, bi-fold or walk in option, you can maximise your floor space and ensure that your smaller bathroom layout works for you.
