5 ways to get your small bathroom to work for you

5 ways to get your small bathroom to work for you


Posted 28th Apr 2016

A small bathroom can end up feeling incredibly claustrophobic, with barely enough room to turn around in. In these circumstances how do you get everything to fit? Is it even possible? Can you really get a toilet, sink, shower and the likes of a toilet roll holder all in, while having a bathroom that you can use? Well, we've got some tips to make your life easier...

 

1. Corner sink

First things first. Have you thought about fitting a corner sink instead of a pedestal sink? For example fitting one across from the shower is not really practical, as opening and closing the shower door can become awkward. Compare this to having it in the corner - you'll avoid an unnecessarily awkward walk-around.

 

2. Shower curtains

Avoid the space of a glass door by using a shower curtain. And if you're incredibly keen to have a bath in your bathroom, you may still be able to - you can get a bath which is as small as 1.5 metres. Even something like a glass panel can be useful as opposed to a shower door - it will free up some room in a situation where every bit of available space counts.

3. Mirror, mirror

Mirrors are always a great option when you're struggling for space. Giving the illusion of more space, you'll be really surprised as to how effective this can be as a space fooling trick.

 

4. Use the door

If you don't have room for a towel rail in the bathroom anywhere else, the door is a great option. It'll be nice and accessible for you too.

 

5. Worktop toilet

You could always extend the worktop to go behind the toilet. This won't have any impact on the toilet and can give your room a clean, minimal look.
