Amazing Space Saving tips for your Small Bathroom
1. Purchase the Japan toilet sink- combo
The Japan toilet sink-combo is an amazing way to save on space on water and space in your small bathroom. You can either change your toilet cover to a sink positive (a mini tap and basin that fits in place of the rear toilet tank lid) and is very easy to install, or buy a full toilet sink combo and replace your current toilet.
2. Turn your small bathroom into a wet room
Wet rooms are becoming more and more in fashion, with their space saving bonus and fluid modern feel, and you can even now get minimal and elegant glass partitions to keep some of the water within the showering area. Wet rooms simply mean having your toilet, shower and other bathroom facilities in one open space, which means you save space on bathroom features. This means you can have toilets sinks and showers closer together and maximise every inch! This space design will require you to implement tiles and add a drain outlet to keep water out of the other rooms.
3. Take advantage of the vertical space
Use higher shelves to put all your accessories! This includes towels, racks, razor blades, toilet paper, make up and any toiletries. For instance, you can fit hooked shelving to the sides of vanity cabinets, sliding shelving to the tops of cupboards or buy clean white storage boxes to slip underneath bathroom cabinets for extra storage.
4. Use a narrow sink
Use a narrow floating sink and install a small cabinet underneath it to hide the pipes.
5. Hook a hanging basket on the back of the bathroom door
Utilise the back of your door for all sorts of storage! You can buy wood, wicker or metal baskets to hang on the back of your door to keep accessories and toiletries tucked away and tidy – and at a handy height!
6. Purchase a tank-less toilet
A tank-less toilet model is another awesome way to free up some space in small bathrooms. These can be incredibly small but take a little more work to install since the tank usually has to be embedded in the wall – but the extra work is definitely worth it for the space you save!
