A small bathroom does not mean that you can’t have the WOW factor. If you have a small ensuite, a cloakroom WC or a compact bathroom, 101 Bathrooms have a wide variety of products to suit your style regardless of your bathroom size.

COLOUR SCHEME
Colour scheme is very important when it comes to bathroom design. Choosing the correct colours in a smaller bathroom requires a bit of thought.  Neutral colours tend to work well in smaller bathrooms and can always be enhanced with a small splash of colour from bathroom fixture or a tile design.

LIGHTING
Light plays a big part in a bathroom as when natural light reflects off surfaces, it creates the illusion of a larger space, but what if you have no window? Which is very common in small bathrooms.  Investing in good lighting in the bathroom will reflect light around the room.  Look for “cool white,” “bright white” or “daylight” bulbs that minimize shadows for the greatest output around your bathroom. Mirrors with lights will also create great reflection. I personally put a Mirror over my bath to create a maximum illusion.  Gloss Tiles are another great way to reflex light around a room.

STORAGE
Toiletries are things we use daily, but they can also make a small bathroom look extremely cluttered and highlight a lack of space. We recommend investing in a bathroom storage cabinet to store all your essentials.
These days bathroom storage is available in so many ways, from side storage to overhead store or opt for under basin storage. Let’s talk compact Basin units, available in all styles and colours, so if you like the classic look or a trendy pop of colour the world is your oyster or if you prefer to stick with the traditional basin & pedestal 101 Bathrooms can point you in the right direction.
One thing I would advise when you are picking a basin make sure it suits your needs and is big enough for the bathrooms requirements, for instance, if it is a downstairs loo and you are just washing your hands the size of the basin doesn’t matter too much but the basin if for your main bathroom for daily washing and grooming then you need a bigger basin.
If you opt for a basin and pedestal you could maximise your space by using a semi pedestal and still have storage as we also have some great overhead Mirrored Bathroom storage cabinets with an open bottom shelf leaving your most needed products handy to reach.

TOILET
So normally in a compact room most people would recommend a wall hung toilet or back to wall toilet as it will help you to achieve a minimalist look and creates a more spacious appearance. As the cistern of a wall hung toilet or a back to wall toilet is hidden the toilet commands less space giving you more room to move around. Another advantage in choosing a wall hung toilet is that the toilet pan does not touch the floor, not only does it open up floor space but also makes it easier to clean, but saying all that this is not always a working option for some people so I would recommend you go chose from our wide range short projection toilets that give you the extra space required at less the price.

SHOWER DOORS
Shower enclosures can be found in many different shapes and sizes that can work very well in small bathrooms. Choosing a shower enclosure isn’t a straight forward process so we recommend taking some time to see what kind of shower enclosure is applicable to your bathroom needs.  Looking at the shape of your Bathroom and the space you have, corner entry shower doors are a good option. if you prefer a look of luxury without demanding space a quadrant shower door is the one for you, with clean curves and a large amount of internal space, quadrant shower enclosures can feel slightly roomier than rectangular or square alternatives. Want to create a wet room in your bathroom no problem, we have curved wet room panels too.

BATHS
When we think of smaller bathrooms it often leads us to start making sacrifices due to a lack of space. Many people have children who love bathing and parents may prefer to shower which makes the choice between the two even harder. However, compromises do not have to be made. A shower bath will offer the best of both worlds and take up a lot less space.  I have a child and very little space in my bathroom so I opted for the Trojan corner bath and bath screen, which my daughter loves the funky shape and chose a bath shower mixer so we still have the option to shower.
