Designing a bathroom in a small space can be quite a challenge but you can still have a workable bathroom in a small space. The trick to a small bathroom design is try and utilize every square centimeter of space effectively without cluttering the space up and making it uncomfortable to be in. Choose your fittings wisely and don’t just opt for a cheap bathroom suite, these suites will often not be suitable for the smaller bathroom.Have a look at Small Bathroom Design Options for more info on this.
A great space saving idea is the so called closet bathroom suites. These suites are designed specifically for your space saving needs. The toilet and basin will be in a wedge shape, this will allow them to be fitted in the corner of the bathroom and saving the space that would otherwise be wasted in the corners.
In the smaller bathroom there is no doubt about what will cause the major headache. There is no way of getting around the fact that a bath will take up a lot of space. If you can physically fit a standard size bath in then you will have no option but to stick with a shower unit. This is often a compromise that most people will be happy to accept and can make the space look modern and stylish, this is the option most young professionals will prefer.
The family home however will need a bath. There are only a few options available if there is not physically enough space for a standard bath. The first option is to gain some space from somewhere, from another adjoining room in the house or to extend the room. Both these options can be expensive and out of reach for many home owners. Another option is to move the bathroom to another location in the home. Again this can be an expensive project and will cause inconvenience to the home owner.
A cheaper and more convenient option is to buy a smaller than standard bath, they are available obviously at an extra cost. A corner bath is often seen as a luxury but contrary to popular belief they are not that expensive and a corner bath will take up less space length wise than a standard bath. The small bathroom isn’t the end of the world and can be a workable space.
