How to create the ideal small bathroom

If, like me, your house is not blessed with a large bathroom space, the tips in today’s guest post could really help you if you’re planning to redesign your small bathroom. Thanks to Screwfix for this advice.

Small bathrooms offer a unique design situation, providing the challenge of how to fit all of the bathroom suite essentials into a reduced space.

While it can be difficult to turn a reduced space into a luxury bathroom, there are a number of hints and tips which can be followed to provide you with a bathroom which is as big on quality as it is small on size. The best starting place for designing a stylish small bathroom is the basin, with bathroom basins having a huge impact on the overall look and feel of a bathroom. A corner basin is the ideal start to a space saving project.

Space saving toilets

Once your space saving basin is in place, deciding on a toilet is the next step. There are a great deal of space saving toilets available in various styles, meaning you do not have to settle for second best when planning the toilet in your ideal small bathroom.

Space saving bath options

The largest object in most bathrooms is the bathtub, making this an ideal place to make the most efficient use of your limited bathroom space by saving as much space as possible.

A straight bath is the most commonly found type of bathtub in a bathroom, and is a design classic which will never go out of style. Straight baths come in various styles, and can generally be found in a size which will not dominate a smaller bathroom. If you are looking for something a bit different and to make use of all the space available to you, Screwfix Bathrooms range of corner baths could be the ideal solution.

A corner bath offers an extremely spacious bathing option, while taking up the minimum amount of space. By limiting your bathtub to just one corner of the room, you leave yourself plenty of space for a basin, space saving toilet and even a shower. Of course, a shower bath is also a highly popular choice, combining a bath and a shower to offer you increased bathing options without taking up excessive amounts of space.

Something you may not have considered when planning your small bathroom design project is bathroom furniture. While this may seem like an unnecessary extra when space is limited, bathroom furniture can actually be the perfect accompaniment to a small bathroom, offering storage space while simultaneously covering up any unsightly pipework that may detract from the overall look and feel of your bathroom.

With space at a premium in a smaller bathroom, storage options can be extremely helpful and will prevent your toiletries creating an untidy and cluttered appearance. Combined with a space saving toilet and a corner bath, you can enjoy a luxury bathroom no matter how much room is available for your design.
