Wanting a ‘bigger bathroom’ or ‘more space in your small bathroom’ is a common theme when we help plan a bathroom. The best way to achieve this is to maximise storage, utilise space efficiently by installing a fitted bathroom.
Research and planning are a necessity with a small bathroom, and although it can be time consuming it guarantees to be beneficial. We commonly start by working around existing features that would be difficult to change, such as the walls, windows and main pipework. Small windows can be common in bathrooms, which limits natural light from entering – even larger windows can obscure natural light due to frosted or patterned surfaces commonly found in your bathroom.
If you are struggling to gain natural light in your bathroom, consider additional lighting options – adding LED strip lighting will open up spaces once forgotten about, giving the illusion of a much bigger room. With a sticky strip back it will stick to most surfaces and can be used on bath panels, units or cabinets.
Mirrors are an excellent way to create the illusion of more space. Many people may opt against full length mirrors in a bathroom but choosing the right bathroom mirrors can be a great trick to give the illusion of more light and space. It is important to think about what will be reflected, as the reflection of a window will increase the view and light of the outdoors, instead of just another wall.
Other elements of your bathroom can be utilised to reflect light, such as high gloss furniture. Windsor bathrooms showroom displays a variety of ranges to cater for smaller bathrooms where you want to create space, the finish reflects light and creates a bright spacious environment.
As well as colour, think about the style of bathroom units you are using and how well are they utilising the space, a fitted bathroom is designed to make use of unused space without making it look over cluttered. Modular furniture is often wall hung, which maximises floor space. As well as being space saving, modular units also have the added bonus of the being fitted at a height which is best suited for you. If space is a real issue we have a luxury compact range on displays and this can be a great solution, with a slimmer depth it gives the style and functionality of the furniture you require but takes up much less room up than the standard units.
If you want more space when actually using your bathroom, rather than more floor or storage space then a full wet room is a great idea. Different to a shower cubicle, these are an open space and become part of the room rather than something separate which can break up the space and make it look overcrowded and small. Why not visit our showroom where you can see displays in a bathrooms environment giving inspiration and ideas for your own bathroom. WE offer full 3d cad design for your bathroom bringing you realistic visual of what your bathroom could look like.
