Sometimes in life, we just have to work with what we’ve got. In terms of our houses, we can all dream as much as we want about having the perfect house, but at the end of the day this isn’t always realistic. Instead, you have to make the most of the house that you do have, and of course with our help, you can solve any housing related dilemma! Today’s blog is all about designing the ideal compact bathroom. Bathrooms can be tricky business as they’re a neccessity, but if we don’t have the space to make them look the way we want them to, it can be frustrating. Follow our tips closely, and say goodbye to that frustration – here’s how it’s done:
Consider a corner sink
Corner sinks take up less space than ordinary sinks and it means that there should be more floor space available. We think it’s best to install it in the corner that isn’t adjacent to the shower – it means you don’t have to try and avoid every time you have a shower, something that could cause potential slips.
Think about where you’re putting your towel rail- Consider putting it on the back of the door or why not buy a sink which has a towel rail incorporated into the design? Either way, it’ll be safely tucked out of the way.
Don’t bother with a shower door
This will take up far more room than necessary. Go for either a shower curtain or a glass panel. They’ll do exactly the same job as the door would.
Utilise your storage
Have you thought about creating storage through buying bathroom fixtures with built in storage? You can buy sinks and even baths these days which have room for everything. It’s also a good idea to go for shelves where you can – if you’re not keen on a towel rail, then a shelf for your towels could work well. A shelf inside the shower would also be useful for all your toiletries. Floating vanity cabinets are your best bet for making things look tidier, and the added bonus of one with a mirrored front means that it gives the illusion of more space.
Keep the plumbing concealed
We know that this can tot up the costs, but it is a worthwhile investment. It helps the overall design look better and also means that you won’t be worrying about banging your toes on exposed pipes – trust us, we know how much it hurts!
