Many of us need to make the most of a compact bathroom. Each bathroom has its own natural boundary, however what most of us really appreciate is the amount of free space to be found as we move around. When it comes to remodelling, with clever bathroom design you can achieve amazing results - whatever the size.
Open plan design for the small bathroom
To create maximum space in a small bathroom we recommend aiming for an open-plan design. Remove any non-essential furniture and if a screen is required consider using a toughened glass panel. Hide pipes, conceal the cistern or even install a wall-hung toilet. Try de-cluttering your bathroom by stowing away most of your products. You’ll be amazed at the increased feeling of space in just minutes.
Look into your bathroom mirror
Think about the way you display bathroom mirrors. They have a dual role, firstly to assist you with grooming, skin care or make-up, but also to create a mirage of extra space. A carefully-hung large mirror will always create a new dimension to your bathroom and help to distribute light. Smart design will also ensure the light on you is well reflected in every mirror.
Make a statement with a bathroom feature wall
If a striking effect is your thing, you can make a statement by introducing a feature wall on one wall. This has the effect of distracting you from the true size of your modest bathroom. Careful choice of colour and style will bring awe into your most intimate domestic space.
Textile tactics to complement bathroom design
Bathroom design presents opportunities to mix soft, warm textiles with glass, marble, ceramic and wood. Deep-pile bath rugs offer a welcome alternative to the cool touch of ceramic floor tiles; unless you enjoy under-floor heating. The sight of a bath full of steaming water and bubbles is enhanced by a display of white cotton, fluffy towels in various sizes on the heated rail close by.
Oversized bathroom ceramics can dwarf a small room, so always select ceramics that suit the scale of your space, in which the necessary space is used while completely meeting with daily needs.In a small bathroom, stick to the basics of a vanity unit and storage rack that you can either hang on the wall or rest on the edge of a bath.
