Design Tips: Planning a Small Bathroom

In a room where you start the day and end the day, you want to make sure the design is practical yet somewhere you love to use. The most common issues when planning a small bathroom is storage, humidity and not having enough wall space for towel rails or mirror cabinets. Although a clever design can solve almost any issue. The key is to work with the space you have rather than against it. A small bathroom can be stylish, practical and self-efficient, we have access to a huge number of products that has been specially designed for small bathrooms (reduced depth basins, short projection WCs and compact taps).

Key things to consider: 

  1. Use wall-mounted products, keep the floor space clear

  2. Use neutral colours – avoid breaking the room up with different colours, this will make it feel boxy

  3. Use a wet room style shower, this allows floor tiles to flow freely into the shower instead of the tray separating the space

The best multi-purpose pieces that work best in a compact bathroom:

  1. If a bath is a must, showers over baths are space saving so you gain more space and floor area rather than compromising on a small bath and small shower area

  2. Our Waterproof Wallpaper not only adds personality to the bathroom, there are no grout lines to break up the room and its super easy to clean

  3. The new TOTO RX or SX washlet toilet which combines a bidet and WC in one

  4. Opt for a wet room shower and use the same flooring throughout, this will avoid the room being divided by a shower tray and give the illusion of more space whilst also giving a sense of luxury
