Why space should be no barrier to beautiful bathrooms
In our previous post, we mulled over the possibilities of giving your cloakroom, or second bathroom, a new lease of life. A nice bit of refurbishment work to get it kicking and screaming into the 2010s. For some households, their main bathroom can be the size of some residents’ secondary bathrooms.
Small can be beautiful; size shouldn’t be a barrier to creativity either. Hotel rooms around the world manage with bijou bathrooms in en suite rooms, as seen in our featured image. Fitting the quart into a pint pot is a challenge but an achievable one nonetheless.
We at Bespoke Bathroom Solutions have experience in this too. Throughout our neck of the woods are a fair number of Edwardian and Victorian properties. Many of them were built before bathrooms and indoor toilets became a standard feature. Therefore, some bathrooms may be small – the bulk of which taking up part of a bedroom.
One effective way of improving space in your bijou bathroom is the use of under the basin space. This could be used for storing bathroom supplies you don’t need at this very moment. A little niche could be created for storing soap, bubble bath, shampoo and the like. If you’re not too precious about your bathtub, you could replace it with a shower cubicle and gain some extra space.
If you wish to make your bathroom look bigger, go for light colour schemes. Make good use of mirrors and use natural light to your advantage.
