Bathrooms are often small spaces with a number of essential fixtures and fittings, which can make design and layout a real challenge. However, you needn’t compromise on style to achieve a functional room which also feels bright and airy. Here are some tips to make the most of the available space.
1. Use light bright colours
Choose large, light coloured wall tiles over dark, earthy tones. Go for a flooring which closely matches the colour of the walls to create the illusion of greater space. Glossy porcelain tiles with unbroken lines will make the room feel bigger and brighter.
Generous sized mirrors will also help to distribute light. Make sure the room is well lit, with plenty of light fixtures.
2. Install a wet room
Wet rooms eliminate the need for a shower cubicle and tray, as the walls and floors are sealed and drainable. They are also easier to keep clean than showers, and are more accessible for those with mobility problems.
3. Make the most of basin space
The basin doesn’t have to be a standard pedestal mounted model. A wall-hung basin can be fitted flat against a wall, or make use of an awkward corner space. Another option is to install a basin which is incorporated into a vanity unit, making the most of extra storage space underneath.
4. Choose a slimline toilet
Toilets are now available in a range of shapes and sizes. In a small bathroom, a wall-mounted model with a slim pan will help to make the room feel larger, and may allow you more flexibility with layouts.
5. Install a multi-tasking bath
If there is space for a bath, but you also want a shower, choose a purpose-designed shower/bath combo, which has a larger showering space at one end. Add a clear glass shower screen to protect from splashes and maximise the light flow of the room.
