Simple Solutions for Small Bathrooms
Finding the right bathroom fittings for your cloakroom can be challenging. It can seem difficult to find the perfect balance between compact usability and sufficient storage. However, working with limited space doesn’t mean you have to compromise on quality or practicality.
There are now various designs and furniture sizes to suit even the smallest of cloakrooms to maximise the space available. Whether you’re looking to include a useful all-in-one unit or want to create the illusion of space with wall mounted fixtures, there is now plenty of choice to suit any small bathroom.
Wall-mounted storage units
Wall-mounted bathroom furniture is an ideal solution for a room that is limited on floor space. You can create an illusion of space as the floor area is not cluttered by various floor standing cabinets. The units are also available in a variety of shapes and dimensions to fit the most compact of cloakrooms.
Floor standing bathroom cabinets
Floor standing bathroom furniture does have its benefits for compact cloakrooms, especially as there are now slim-line unit purposely designed for cloakrooms. Many units can also include a built-in basin so you can combine storage with essential fixtures. Fully inset basins can be fitted discretely into the countertop with no protrusion from over the countertop for optimum space saving.
Cloakrooms offer very little space, however there are innovative furniture designs to create storage such as cloakroom basins. These can include useful features such as drawers or cupboards below the basin and a handy towel rail.
Rectangular basins can be placed anywhere such as difficult and redundant areas like the corner of the room. Or you could choose a corner basin, which has been purposely shaped to fit into the right angle corner of a room.
Wall-hung and back to wall toilets have an obvious space-saving advantage because the cisterns are concealed. Wall-hung toilets have a further benefit in smaller bathrooms as only the toilet bowl is exposed, creating the illusion of space as the toilet is suspended above the ground.
Toilets are also available with a cistern shaped to fit snugly into the corner of the cloakroom. These are a great alternative to make the most of space that is often considered redundant.
