It’s all about to display illusion for more space than actually is available.Obviously the size,design and position of each unit should be relevant to the bathroom dimension creating comfortable space as much as possible in small bathrooms. Lighter colours on the tiles,painting and furniture will enhance the illusion for more spaces along with a bigger size mirror installed.

This is something that would vary with each installation. I would go for wall hung basin to allow more floor space, chase all pipes in the wall. I recommend going with light colours in a small room. I’ve previously had to rehang the door to open outwards for the customer to achieve the look they desire.

All bathrooms are different sizes and to be honest shapes too. It’s best to do it on a customer basis. People want different things and different furniture. I go for slimline furniture for smaller bathrooms so they have a larger turning circle in the middle. Not great to have a bathroom that you can’t really use, so space I’d definitely a factor. I always ask the customer what they want as the customer is always right... So it’s my job to make sure that it will fit and fit correctly.

I think you need to take it on a job by job basis according to the customers wants/needs. I'd be more inclined to use slimline furniture to help make the most of the space available and most feeds and wastes can be moved around to help implement this. I'd also stick to a lighter colour scheme to help create a feeling of spaciousness.

Its tricky because with out seeing the project you can only offer possibilities..but most companies offer smaller / slimmer products which gives a sleeker look .. Alternatively depending on pipework the bathroom could be redesigned and possibly have items put in different places.

There is no script for this obviously there is a tighter space to work with but again it comes down to what you want from your bathroom. Are you wanting a bath to bathe in and relax or are you wanting a walk in shower? There are many options even with a small bathroom, again a good bathroom expert will listen to you go through all your options.

Would always recommend having built in units in a small space to maximise the usable space available. Having said that to many units will make it look like a bathroom showroom. You could have separate stand alone sanitary ware or even a short bath if space is really limited. A total reconfiguration will sometimes help if it has been poorly placed in the first place

The main issue here that controls the layout of the bathroom is the existing and potential amendments that can be made to the drainage and soil pipe in accordance with the building regulations without too much work. There are regulations that dictate the maximum size holes that can be drilled into joists for waste pipes and in most cases there is not much that can be done moving soil pipe from one location to another so it becomes impractical to relocate the toilet to the other side of the room. This therefore dictates that the layout must remain as before but with newer units, perhaps wall hung sinks etc. In this case keep it simple do not go elaborate, keep the colours of the panels or tiles neutral or light coloured.

would recommend built in units / vanity units although these take up a fair bit of floor space it will hide away all your bathroom clutter and give a more slimline effect . I personally like the l shaped basin and toilet unit it gives a full basin and worktop space with a cupboard for all cosmetics and toiletry's and a concealed toilet cistern. if you can get a good colour scheme and contrast it can work very well. for example a white suit will add light to the room giving it a bigger look and feel if you have light grey walls the suit will stand out making it a feature and also making the room look bigger. do avoid dark colours as this will make the room feel small. lighting is also a great way to make a room feel bigger . every bathroom is different and these ideas may not working in all small bathrooms . wall hung furniture can also give a room the feeling of being bigger as you will be able to see more floor space making it feel bigger than it actually is. a well placed mirror can also help.

There are many ways you can utilise space in a small bathroom. Avoid bulky vanity units and try and opt for wall hung furniture as it will give the illusion of more space. You can purchase corner basins to make use of corners, but if you really want to save space by not having a basin at all you can get a 2 in 1 wash basin and toilet. A bath is obviously a large piece that fills up the room so if you can live without one opt for a quadrant shower that can fit into a corner space to save room. Opting for brighter coloured tiles over darker ones will also make the room feel larger. A large mirror in the room will also do this as well as glossy tiles that will reflect the light.
