Creating a small ensuite bathroom

An ensuite bathroom can be incredibly useful and beneficial for home owners and property developers alike. But what should you consider when creating a small ensuite bathroom?

What are the important considerations when creating a small ensuite bathroom?

Creating a small ensuite bathroom can be a challenging task, but with careful planning and design, a functional and stylish space can be created. Some of the important considerations to take into account include:

  • Increasing the use of space
  • Planning the layout
  • Choosing the design theme

Maximising space in a small ensuite bathroom

One of the key considerations when designing a small ensuite bathroom is to maximise the use of space. This can be done by selecting smaller fixtures and fittings like a narrow sink, a wall-mounted toilet, and a small shower or bathtub. Space can also be saved by utilising a floating vanity or a corner sink, using space that would otherwise be wasted. There are a range of compact fixtures available to suit any en suite bathroom space.

Planning the layout of a small ensuite bathroom

The bathroom’s layout should also be carefully considered and taken into account. Making the bathroom open-plan with the shower, toilet, and sink all visible from the same central location can help the room feel bigger. The room will appear larger if you use a transparent glass shower screen rather than a shower curtain. Mirrors can also help your small ensuite feel larger.

Choosing the design theme for a small ensuite bathroom

When choosing the design theme for the bathroom there are a few key elements to consider. Firstly, you will need to choose a colour scheme that will help to make the space feel larger and more inviting. Small spaces typically can feel brighter, and even larger, when light colours, such as white or pale grey are used as these are colours that can reflect light around the room, increasing the sense of space.

You will also need to consider the fixtures and fittings for the bathroom. Durability and style should be the key factors so that your fixtures will fit with your overall theme, while still looking great for the years ahead.
