How To Maximise Your Bathroom Space
Creating a spacious and modern bathroom can be a difficult task. It’s a room we use everyday, but most UK bathrooms are small and cramped spaces.
However, with careful thought and planning there are ways to maximise the space you have, to create a beautiful, practical bathroom with a spacious feel.
Enough storage is essential in a bathroom but finding ways to make everything fit can be tricky. If you are creating a new bathroom then add wall recesses for bottles. This is especially handy in the shower and stops you from constantly knocking them over, while keeping them easily within reach.
The space above the toilet is often wasted; use the space for shelving or cabinets.
Get rid of old radiators and install a heated towel rack instead. It will warm the bathroom and towels, helping to prevent moisture build-up while providing a space to hang damp towels.
A corner sink is a good solution for smaller bathrooms; a round vanity unit has smooth curves and is even more compact.
A narrow trough sink not only looks modern and sleek, it frees up floor space and gives your bathroom a more minimalist look. Wall mounted taps also create a minimalist feel without cluttering up the sink area.
A shower over the bathtub is an option for smaller bathrooms, otherwise consider getting rid of the bath altogether and installing a walk-in shower that runs the length of the wall. Curtains are cheap-looking and unhygienic, as they attract mould. Opt for a frameless, glass shower screen to open up the bathroom, reflect light and give the room a cleaner, more seamless look.
Tile grouting absorbs dirt and moisture and is a breeding ground for bacteria. For a contemporary and hygienic alternative, use Tadelakt plaster. This Moroccan plaster creates a smooth, seamless surface that is waterproof and scratch resistant. It’s not only used to cover walls, ceilings and shower units, but can also be used to create stunning, contemporary bathtubs and sink units. Tadelakt is available in a range of colours and can give a smaller bathroom a modern, spacious feel without the need for grouting. Use in specific areas or use it to cover the entire bathroom, giving the room a seamless look. It can even be used as a floor covering.
