Make The Best Use Of Space In Your Ensuite
In most rooms of the house, we get to express our own individual style, throw off the shackles of decorative banality, and create a home we are proud of. Well, for most rooms anyway. If you have an ensuite bathroom, things aren’t quite so clear cut.
For the smallest room in the house, big ideas often have to be scaled down to fit the space, but that doesn’t mean you have to settle for an ensuite design you don’t want. So if you’ve got an ensuite to decorate, it’s time to look at how you can get the most out of what you’ve got.
Let’s look at what you can do to maximise your available space and create an ensuite you’ll love…
Ensuite Furniture to Maximise Space
Ensuites often get overlooked as they generally are only seen by the people who sleep in the room they’re connected to. Because of their size, they can possess an almost claustrophobic feel, but it doesn’t have to be that way. By thinking carefully about your bathroom fixtures and fittings, you can make even the smallest room feel a lot bigger.
One simple way to do this is to lift the toilet and vanity units off the floor and hang them on the wall. Toilets come as a ‘back-to-wall’ option, where the cistern is integrated into the wall which is a unique design that creates more visible space. This gives you more visible floor space and creates a minimalist look. This type of toilet also tends to be shorter than a standard unit, giving you a little more space for other bathroom fixtures.
If your ensuite is an awkward shape because of its location or includes some strange angles, it’s important to embrace those spaces, rather than shy away from them. For example, when your ensuite is part of a loft conversion, has an angled window bay, or just exists between adjoining rooms with angular walls, your bathroom design needs to maximise the space with some clever design solutions.
Converting your ensuite into a wet room with a walk-in shower can help to tackle these architectural quirks. This gives you the option of installing just a showerhead, rather than needing a fitted shower unit. If this isn’t possible, then creating more light with windows, roof-lights, or just adding mirrors all help to maximise the space and make the room look larger than it is.
We appreciate that this sounds like a lot of work, particularly if you’re not a bathroom designer. The good news is that your lack of DIY skills won’t hold you back. By hiring a bathroom designer, you can get your dream ensuite without any of the hassle.
An ensuite designer will have seen all the possible problems you will encounter and have the experience and knowledge to resolve them. Your ensuite might be the smallest room in the house, but that doesn’t have to mean it deserves the least attention. It can look bigger without breaking the bank by adopting some clever design tricks to create a space you’ll love.
