31 Jul Space Saving Bathrooms
Whether you need to squeeze all the function of a family bathroom into a small space or want ideas on how to optimise your ensuite, read on to discover our seven clever space saving ideas.
- Wall hung sanitaryware and furniture. A classic space saving technique that has been around for a while and isn’t going anywhere soon. If your toilet and sink sit above the floor, the eye is drawn to the area underneath, helping to create the illusion of space.
- Corner sinks and toilets. Installing a corner sink in your bathroom means that the sink takes up less wall space, giving you room for those all important extras such as storage. Corner sinks and toilets are great for very small rooms such as ensuites and downstairs cloakrooms.
- Following on from the same vein, quadrant shower cubicles will give you all the function of a standard sized shower cubicle without taking up a huge amount of floor space. Quadrant shower cubicles normally come with sliding doors, which means you don’t have to worry about leaving enough space for the shower door to open outwards.
- Mirrored cabinets usually come in varying sizes, with the standard being 600mm in width; but many brands do an ultra slim mirrored bathroom cabinet as small as 200mm. Mirrored cabinets are multifunctional, providing you with a place for personal grooming as well as storage. The mirrored surface also reflects light, helping to brighten and enlarge the room.
- Clever storage. If the space available to you is too small to include a large vanity unit, then the addition of a tall, narrow storage unit is an ideal one. Store all of your towels or toiletries without taking up too much floor space. Another idea is to build shelves or storage around your standalone sink.
- Wall recesses. Fantastic for family bathrooms and ensuites, and a great trend in 2018, tiled wall recesses give you plenty of space when it comes to storing your toiletries and cleaning products.
- Combined units. If you don’t want a wall hung toilet or sink but still need a space-saving solution for your sanitaryware, why not go for a combined unit? A combined sink and vanity unit with toilet look stylish and give you storage but take up less floor than a separate toilet and sink.
