Bath and shower options for small bathrooms

Here at RWM Plumbing and Gas, we are bathroom installation specialists. And we can help you make the most out of your bathroom space, no matter the size. In a small bathroom, it is often thought that a bath and a shower simply won’t fit. But there are ways around this. And you shouldn’t have to compromise. As a result, we have produced this guide to bath and shower options for small bathrooms.

 Choice of bath

It is possible to fit both a bath and a shower into a smaller bathroom, without leaving you feeling claustrophobic. In fact, there are a range of space saving baths that can help make better use of your bathroom space, and take up less room. These space saving baths include:

  • Space saver baths- specially designed to solve this common problem, compact, space saver baths are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. They can also be cut to size so that they fit in awkward spaces and use space that would otherwise be wasted.
  • Thermaform baths- specially engineered, thermaform baths have more internal lining, but take up less space externally. And with up to 24% more internal lining, they are extremely comfortable for long, luxurious soaks.
  • Corner baths-does your bathroom have a corner spare? If so a corner bath can be a great option. corner baths tend to be curved on the one side that you enter the bath from, and fit snugly between the two walls. This means that a lot less floor space is wasted.

Choice of shower

But it’s not only the bath that can reduce in size, it’s also the shower. In fact, combining both compact bath and shower options, for small bathrooms, can have fantastic results. Shower choices that can save space include:


  • choosing doors that fold in or slide across. This might not sound impressive, but doors that swing outwards require a lot more floorspace, and doors that fold dont require any at all.
  • corner showers- as with a corner bath, a corner shower fits snugly into the corner of the room and has a curved front to reduce the amount of floorspace it will take up.
