Top Tips When Designing Small Bathrooms

Small bathrooms are very common these days, it seems homes are being built on a smaller scale and that means small family bathrooms, small en-suites and tiny cloakrooms.

When faced with a small bathroom you may feel that there is no way you can turn this small space into your dream bathroom, but there is no reason that small bathrooms cannot be spa-inspired luxury spaces.

There are a few bathroom products you can use to turn your small bathrooms into dream spaces, careful measurement is key, so be sure to work off a clear bathroom layout so you know exactly how much space you have to work with.

Here are a few tips to help you.

Quadrant Shower

Once you have all your measurements in place you can start looking at quadrant showers for smaller bathrooms. The quadrant shower trays and enclosures fit beautifully into the corner of the bathroom, available in square or rectangular with a gentle and stylish curve in the front.

The advantage to the quadrant design is that the enclosures come with sliding shower doors, this means you don’t compromise any floor space and don’t have to worry that your shower door will swing open and bang into another bathroom item, even worse not be able to open completely at all, limiting your shower opening for getting in and out of the shower.

Vanity Units

Bathroom vanity units with basins are the perfect addition to small bathrooms, they not only offer valuable storage space which is essential to reduce clutter in the bathroom but they incorporate a basin, which again saves on valuable floor space. Vanity units come in a range of sizes from floor standing to wall mounted, so it’s easy to find the right sized unit to meet your bathroom size requirements.

Back to Wall Toilets

Another space saving option for smaller bathrooms is the back to wall toilets. These toilets have the toilet cistern hidden in the wall which means only the toilet bowl takes up space in your bathroom, you’d be amazed how much space you can save by choosing these modern toilets for the small bathroom space.

Light and Bright

When working with small bathrooms always try and keep the area as light and bright as possible, a large window for natural light and plenty of white will make the space feel much bigger than it is.
