When planning a small bathroom, making the most out of space is pinnacle. Here’s our best advice from our Head of Design, Ed Exelby on making small bathrooms appear bigger.
Consider a Corner Shower
Corner showers are an effective use of space in smaller bathrooms. Wetroom style semi-famed showers, such as our Saffron Collection (shown below) provide a slimline and highly stylish alternative to bulky full-framed shower units.
Think Vanity Units
Integrating basins and WCs into vanity units is not only a great integrated storage solution but creates a seamless, clutter-free design as seen here with our Fresco Saving Bathroom.
Choose Slimline Sanitaryware
Wall hung WCs and semi-pedestal basins provide extra space by opening up floor space. WCs with cistern conceals and full pedestal basins provide unnecessary bulk so wall hung options are a great alternative. Take a look at the spaciousness of our Libra Suite below with it wall-hung sanitaryware.
Opt For Mirrored Storage
Wall-mounted, eye level mirrored cabinets are a great space-saving solution. Not only far less space demanding than freestanding storage units, the reflective properties of the mirrored design creates the illusion of space as seen here with our Sandalwood Collection.
Double Up Your Bath
Eliminating the need for separate shower and bath units, showers over baths are a great choice for small bathrooms. They can be a great statement style feature too, with quirky bath designs such as the P Shape bath in our Naples Collection below.
Introduce a Skylight
More and more, homeowners are choosing loft conversions to create extra bathroom space in the home. Introducing a skylight creates the illusion of space by allowing light to flood through. Our Microspace Bathroom below shows just how effective this lighting can be, particularly when used alongside bright white sanitaryware.
