Space Saving Ideas for the Bathroom

Designing the perfect bathroom in a limited space can be a bit of a challenge. With large bathrooms it does not matter so much where each element is situated but in a small bathroom design the elements do become crucial. Let’s look at a few space saving ideas.

A bath or a shower, do you really need both or is combining a small bathtub with a shower an option. Always use small compact baths in a small space, larger baths will dominate the room and make it look small.

With bathroom sinks and vanity units you should choose smaller sinks or even built in units and avoid fitting large bulky bathroom faucets. Corner sinks can be good for use in small bathroom design plans.

Avoid using a corner bath in a small bathroom. Corner tubs do not actually save space and often look bulky. It is always better to fit a smaller compact bathtub, or perhaps just a corner shower.

Wet rooms  may be a more expensive way to go, but they can have a great effect and make good use of a confined space. Installing a wet room is not for the armature and should be done by a reputable company to avoid problems.

Make use of the corners with shelving, look at having recessed shelves in the walls. Solid and partition walls can often be cut into to fit shelves within the wall. Ideas like this can save space and add to the overall project.

Try to combine as many space saving ideas as you can and spend time planning the design out before you buy anything. Making plans of your small bathroom using pictures can  help to visualise the end results. Making some effort at the design stage will make it possible to create a wonderful and functional bathroom.
