Bathroom Storage a must?
Bathroom storage really is a must for most people, it’s maximising the space you have and fitting some all important storage into the design. The best thing to do is look at using compact furniture for a start, this will reduce the depth of the vanity and washbasin area giving more space in the room. Second we need to look at using wall mounted furniture, having a unit that’s floating does give the feeling of space and can make a small room feel so much bigger; I would look at a single drawer vanity if that’s enough storage too as they sit a little higher off the floor, and give the visual representation that the room is bigger than if you use a two or three drawer vanity unit.
There's also the option of having fitted bathroom furniture in your smallest room, in my opinion it doesn't look quite as spacious but it does solve a storage problem, hides those unwanted pipes and creates a clean sleek look, again i would probably look at reduced depth fitted bathroom furniture as this will give a feeling of space. We have a couple of ranges of bathroom furniture on display and available in many shapes, sizes and colours, there really isn't many limitations when choosing fitted bathroom furniture.
What toilet is right?
I'm a big fan of wall hung, a wall hung toilet gives a feeling of space just like the wall mounted vanity unit does, it also gives the feel of luxury and sets your bathroom apart from the rest. You can also be a little clever and add storage to the section above the toilet which can be a really good use of space in such a small room, we also have some customers who prefer to have an open recess with a light and glass shelves for dressing the room up. If wall hung isnt your thing or it doesn't fit within your budget then a close coupled toilet is fine, just look to get one that is as compact as possible, a small cistern helps with the feel of the room.
Remember if you choose a wall hung toilet you will also need a wall hung frame and button, we like to use either Geberit or Viega, both offer great quality but each one offers something slightly different in style / design and will depend on what style you are going for.
