Designing a new bathroom can be challenging especially if you have a small space, but having a small bathroom provides the perfect opportunity to create a very cosy and inviting look and feel. With close attention to detail and careful planning you can make your small bathroom appear more spacious too. Here are ten space saving ideas for small bathrooms.

1. Ensure all your toiletries are neatly stored away in a stylish wall-mounted vanity unit to create an organised bathroom. The wall-mounted design will make a small bathroom look more spacious.

2. Let in as much natural light as possible to create a bright and airy feel, if you don’t have a window install plenty of bright lighting instead.

3. Use natural colours and textures such as marble and stone to create a more welcoming space, and to help add a feeling of luxury . Reflective surfaces such are ideal, as they help to reflect the light.

4. Install a wall mounted toilet and basin to create as much floor space as possible, this provides the illusion of a larger room, as well as making your floor much easier to clean! Short projection toilets are ideal too if you can’t install a wall-hung toilet.

5. Choose a large mirror to reflect and bounce the light around, which helps to create a greater sense of space.

6. If you want to include a shower in your small bathroom opt for a quadrant shower enclosure, which features a space saving design with its curved front.

7. Alternatively if you would prefer to install a bath instead of a shower enclosure have a compact 1600mm steel bath which is ideal for a small bathroom.

8. If installing a shower over a bath don’t fit a shower curtain to protect the floor from splashes, instead opt for a bath screen which provides a much cleaner and minimal look, as well as creating a more effective waterproof seal.

9. When choosing new taps and accessories such as a toilet roll holder, towel ring, soap dish, robe hook etc opt for ones that feature a sleek, minimal design for a fuss-free look.
