How to Choose the Perfect Shower Cabin for a Small BathroomOn June 14, 2017 by johnny
Having a small bathroom is a common problem, whether you live in a modern or an older home. It has long been a complex issue, trying to fit in all the necessary fittings while still giving people room to move around. Smaller bathrooms can certainly be a problem. But don’t panic, there are several clever solutions that can help you maximise the space in even the smallest of bathrooms. Choosing the right shower enclosure, for a start.
The shower enclosure is one of the bulkiest pieces of bathroom furniture so if you get this right, you can really help maximise the space you have available. Luckily there is a lot of choice nowadays so you can find a variety of showers to suit your own style as well as your bathroom size.
Use Your Corners and Recesses
In a small bathroom you are unlikely to have the luxury of a long expanse of bare wall to put your Shower Cubicle on. But don’t worry, because modem showers are now designed to fit into the small spaces – corners and recesses – that you are sure to have in your small bathroom. For example, you can find quadrant showers and corner shower units that fit nicely into spaces that would otherwise be wasted.
Look at D-Shaped Showers
If the corners in your small bathroom are already occupied by other things, or they are simply not big enough, try fitting a shower enclosure along the wall in the shape of a D. A D-shaped shower enclosure fits flush to one wall but the doors curve round in the shape of the letter D, meaning you have lots of space inside and more space outside around the shower.
Choose to Install a Wet Room
While wet rooms are more commonly set into larger bathroom spaces, they can still work in a small bathroom. You may need to fit a shower screen that blocks off at least the toilet or the basin to ensure that your toilet roll and your towels do not always get soaked. A wet room is not the ideal bathroom design for the main bathroom, but it works really well as an en-suite. You also don’t need to worry about fitting a bulky shower cubicle into the room. It is a very sophisticated and modern style of bathroom, so it should turn heads and give you a talking point for what could otherwise be a very boring room.
