How To Save Space In The Bathroom

How To Save Space In The Bathroom

Many of us enjoy a long soak in the bath, letting the stresses of the day drift away, but many enjoy an invigorating shower too. But the bathroom is often the smallest room in the house, meaning it is not always possible to have a separate bath and shower.

Regardless of whether you have a small apartment bathroom, or looking for space in a small en-suite, there are plenty of great shower bath options that will allow you to combine both options and still make your bathroom feel like a spa-retreat sanctuary.

Let’s have a look at some space-saving shower bath ideas.


Showcase the tub

With a shower bath, you may find you have more options available to you when it comes to design choices. Why not consider a freestanding tub as the centrepiece of your bathroom and incorporate a shower.

A freestanding bath is an aspiration for many homeowners but even in large houses, bathrooms can be on the smaller side, so careful planning is necessary to ensure there is adequate room around the bath, as well as means to prevent water escaping from the shower.


Think seriously about storage

One way to create a luxurious shower bath spa is to ensure you eliminate clutter. But there are bath and shower essentials you want to hand, such as shower gels, body washes, shampoos and so on. 

A brilliant - and very popular - way to increase storage space without bringing in sizeable units with more drawer space is to build a recess or ledge in the shower itself, where you can keep what you need to hand without it getting in the way.


Utilise the corners

Fitted baths can look quite large and chunky but you can easily create a sense of space by using a freestanding bath and putting it in a corner of the room. You’ll be able to see more of the floor, which will make your bathroom seem bigger.


Choose a P-shaped bath

A P-shaped bath with a shower overhead can help ensure that all your bathroom needs are met. You’ll be able to enjoy the luxurious feel of a large bath, as well as having a shower ready and waiting for you when you’re in more of a hurry. It’s a win-win!

Your choice of shower screen can also make your bathroom look bigger. A transparent glass screen will help create the illusion of space, while a shower curtain could make the room feel more enclosed.
