If you’re a regular blog reader, you may know that we recently revamped our main bathroom. Not a forever renovation but so much better than before. It’s not huge by any means but feels like a palace compared to our tiny en-suite which is er, ‘bijou’ I believe. Of course we’re lucky to have it and I’m already planning a face-lift. So here are five space saving tips for a small bathroom.
1) Use Walls For Towel Rails
We’re used to seeing towel rails set into the floor. Mount them on the wall instead, especially at the end of a bath or shower enclosure. This will free up floor space making a room appear bigger and also makes good use of the wall space.
2) Consider Statement Flooring
Our main bathroom (and the en suite) both had dark vinyl on the floor when we moved in. We gave the en-suite a very quick update with some paler vinyl but the real show-stopper is the patterned vinyl we now have in the main bathroom. Keeping a simple monochrome colour scheme and putting in a wow-factor floor has made our small bathroom feel much bigger.
3) Combine A Mirror, Cupboard And Lighting In One
If wall-hanging space is limited but you still need storage, consider a mirrored cabinet with stylish LED-lighting like these Lumino bathroom cabinets. Giving a contemporary feel, they’re practical and will take up less space in small bathroom than separate mirror and cupboards.
4) Use Corners
Use corners for baths, showers or sinks. This is a great way to save space and also create a bit of visual interest. If you place a shower enclosure in the corner, make sure to have a sliding door and not a swinging one.
5) Make A Wet Room
A wet room is a great solution, especially for a small bathroom or en-suite. It’s what we want to do with our en-suite since we don’t need bathrooms in both places. They add value to properties and look so stylish. Add a little underfloor heating for that luxe hotel feel and it will be your favourite space in the house.
Have you got the perfect bathroom space or are there things you would like to change? I’d love to hear your tips!
