Building Your Dream Bathroom Suite with Limited Space
Nothing says luxury like a stylish bathroom. After a long hard day at work, the last thing you’d want is to get back home to a cramped and unpleasant bathroom. After all, the bathroom is where you wash away all the stress and dirt of the day away. And today, modern-day home bathroom suites are often able to emulate the luxuries of a hotel bathroom suite. That beautiful whirlpool bathtub you had at the Ritz? You can now have it at home. Some might say that their small bathroom space renders such an idea impossible. However, this notion is completely wrong. Small bathrooms can still be outfitted with luxurious and stylish furnishings to create the dream bathroom experience!
As the human population increases, land begins to become more sparse and houses become more cramped. Accordingly, manufacturers have also adjusted and began to create more minimalistic and space-saving toilet furnishing designs. So, read on to figure out how you can build the ultimate bathroom suites for small bathrooms for yourself, regardless of your bathroom’s size!
Everyone knows the best way to unwind after a long day is by taking a nice hot soak in the tub. It is therefore important to own a bath within your own bathroom. It is highly possible to find smaller-sized bathtubs. One such example is the Frontline Caymen Luxury Single Ended Bath. The smallest of this model measures at 1200mm x 700mm and it is one that will surely fit within your bathroom.
“But that’s not luxurious or fancy enough!”, some might complain. Well, you can definitely take this bath and make it fancy. For starters, you could add jets to this bath to make it into the amazing whirlpool tub you used at the Ritz. If that’s not enough, you can spice up your bathroom by adding special underwater lights to create the right mood for every soak you take. For the ultimate experience, you can even choose to have Bluetooth speakers installed so that music can be left playing around you as you relax.
As with other modern advancements, toilets also come in a variety of sizes. A great way to save space within your suite is to choose a smaller toilet and place it in a corner. This allows greater room for your other bathroom furnishings and can even create the illusion of more space. A newer alternative is also the wall hung toilets. These toilets create the illusion of space as there appears to be more floor space available. Furthermore, this style carries a modern and minimalistic edge that is sure to class up your bathroom.
Style matters, however, it is also important to take your body’s size into consideration. If you’re on the bigger side, it would be best to pick a toilet that suits your needs. Picking a smaller toilet may look good. But, in the long run, this will only be uncomfortable for yourself.
To make your daily routine even more comfortable, you can always look to install a bidet within your toilet seat. This addition adds a level of luxury to your toilet and it is one that is sure to impress your guests. With this, you can even save on toilet paper and that’s an eco-friendly move to make!
A bathroom suite would be incomplete and unhygienic without a proper basin. The right basin can also be the difference between a plain bathroom and an elegant and beautiful one. Basins are perhaps the one furnishing that has the most number of styles and sizes. There are now wall hung basins and semi pedestal basins that help portray an illusion of extra space within your bathroom. The size of the basins available also varies and you’re free to choose one that suits your bathroom. However, it is also important to remember to choose a basin that is large enough for your needs. Usability will ultimately beat style and a basin that doesn’t fit your needs is sure to leave you ultimately frustrated.
Some basins also come with shelving space beneath or on them. Such basins may be larger in size and take up more room, however, these shelving spaces may ultimately be useful and beneficial for your bathroom suite. With the right decorations, this basin can still be spruced up to look classy and luxurious.
The best place for your basin could be in a corner as this would leave more floor space open and project the illusion of a bigger bathroom suite. Alternatively, your basin could be placed next to your shower, tub or toilet to create a sense of partitioning within your suite. This ensures that your bathroom suite does not look messy and cluttered.
Showers are also a popular choice for smaller bathrooms. After all, showers take up less space compared to baths. It’s also an eco-friendly option to take as showers use up less water than baths. Alternatively, people also enjoy having a separate shower enclosure in their bathrooms, on top of their own baths. For smaller bathrooms, compact shower trays have been created. Showers also come in two varieties – enclosed and open. Enclosed showers are great because they ensure that water does not get all over the bathroom floor. Open showers do not have this benefit however, as their open nature leaves the bathroom looking spacious. It is thus up to you to choose which option you’d prefer more.
As with all other furnishings, placing your shower in a corner is the best way to utilize your bathroom space. If your bathroom suite is more elongated than square, a good option is also to place your shower and toilet on opposing ends. Your basin can then be placed in the middle to create a cohesive and elegant space.
At the end of the day, creating a luxurious and amazing bathroom suite within a small space only seems impossible. However, with some creative thinking and careful planning, it is definitely possible to create the bathroom of your dreams. Once the base layout is done, you can also add extra frills to truly create the luxurious bathroom suite of your dreams.
