When renovating a compact bathroom so much time needs to be spent on the layout and functionality of the space. When working with a smaller bathroom you are limited to your design layout, of course a large oval bath in the centre of the room is not a practical choice, never mind you won’t be able to move.
A bathroom with only a bath and nothing else is definitely not the bathroom design you are aiming for. I’ve worked with some small bathrooms, they are becoming more common in homes across the UK and the one thing I have learned is that the planning stage is imperative.
Measure out the space of the bathroom and then you can start working on the bathroom products, where they will fit into the bathroom and maximise your floor space. I usually prefer to add a shower into a smaller bathroom, this leaves you with ample space to add your vanity with inset basin, your toilet and other accessories such as your designer radiator.
Finding the Best Shower Enclosure
When it comes to smaller bathrooms a shower enclosure with a swinging door is not the most practical solution. If you choose a shower enclosure with a pivot or hinged door then you have to start worrying about how far the door can open before it is stopped by the vanity or toilet.
Now as you can imagine having a door that swings open and it not opening all the way will leave you squeezing through the opening of your shower door each time you want a shower. I don’t know about you, but when I have a shower I want it to be practical, functional and convenient and squeezing through a door space doesn’t tick any of those boxes.
The top choice for the smaller bathroom is sliding door shower enclosures. These give you the ability to enjoy the advantages of a shower and not worry about how much space the doors will take up. The sliding door shower enclosures do what it says on the box, the door slides open leaving you ample space to get in and out of the bathroom and you don’t have to worry about the door being obstructed in any way.
Other advantages to the sliding door shower enclosures are that they are minimalistic in design and even better they are easy to clean and maintain, making them the most suitable option for any small or large bathroom design.
