Short on space
If you live in a capital city or apartment, the chances are your bathroom isn’t necessarily as spacious as you would like. Yet you still must include the same essentials in a small bathroom as you would in bathrooms two or even four times the size!
“As a starting point I always begin by using a toilet with a wall recessed cistern to remove unnecessary clutter from the walls and give the illusion of space,” says Shannon.
“Complement this with a clean straight-lined sink like Beaumonts’ Belinda Semi Rec Basin as this will continue to elongate and streamline the overall look of the bathroom. Then pair with a floating vanity to further open the ground-level floorplan.
“Often people put too many features or patterns into their bathroom renovation project. When selecting your wall or floor tile, consider a tile with movement, colour variation and texture in the design as opposed to a solid pattern, less can be so much more,” Shannon adds.
You can also add a bit more space by opting for bathroomware pieces that are slightly smaller. A small bath may only be 10-20cm shorter than a larger one, but you'll notice the space you gain in the room more than the space you lose in the bath.
