Save space in the bathroom

BY Cook & Bathe

Saving space in the bathroom is a common problem that many of our clients face when embarking on their renovations. It’s one of the challenges we most frequently come across especially when it comes to bathroom planning.

So here are just a few ideas to help you make the most of your available space when planning your bathroom renovation.

Space saving ideas:

An over bath shower is a great option to save on space and maintain the functionality of being able to shower and have a nice relaxing bath in your new bathroom. While most people would agree this is not the ideal scenario, it’s sometimes the best option to save space and create a great overall first impression.

Wall faced or back to wall toilets with concealed cisterns are another great way to save on space and provide a more streamlined open looking bathroom. Not to mention the fact that they hide all of the ugly bits like the plumbing and cistern. Let’s face it, the toilet is not the most attractive bathroom feature so the less we see, the better I say.

A very cost effective way to create the illusion of space and make your bathroom look bigger is through the use of light colours particularly on the walls. Pale colours reflect light and will make your bathroom appear brighter and more spacious.

Another good way to maximise space is to install a sliding entry door to the bathroom. The most effective way to use the internal bathroom wall space is to install a concealed sliding door which will add a much more pleasing aesthetic. It will also provide more functional wall space for fitting towel rails.

Multifunction fixtures such as mirrored cabinets are also a great idea to help you make the most of your available space.

Beautiful and functional storage solutions are a great way to add some style and personality to your new bathroom and help save on space. There are so many creative and different options available so you can have a bit of fun in the process.

One of the things I learnt over the years is that when it comes to bathrooms, less is definitely more. In my opinion there is nothing more tasteful than a well thought out and designed bathroom that has style and simplicity at the core.
