According to a Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Report in April 2013, one of the biggest causes of dissatisfaction in the home, is a lack of space.

For those of us who don’t have the luxury of a big lavish bathroom where everyday design considerations aren’t a problem, VictoriaPlum.com offers the solution. With a wide range of products, you can chose efficient space saving designs to meet both the size constraints of your bathroom and your everyday needs. You can easily create a spacious and quality bathroom to rival more expensive (and expansive!) counterparts.

The guide below offers a unique look at the five best ways to create more space in your bathroom. It will help free up much needed space for you and your family, making it a more enjoyable and relaxing room to be in.

1. Corner basins

Why not make the most of a tight space with a corner basin? Corner basins, being a little smaller in size, make use of space that usually goes unused in bathrooms: the corners. Not only this, they can be placed near to other units and yet still be accessed easily as they face diagonally into the room – but why stop there? Wall-mounted basins offer even more efficiency as they allow you to use the space below them for storage.

2. Corner toilets

Like corner basins, corner toilets can also be a great way to free up space, for all the same reasons. Having a corner toilet helps stop you from being huddled up against a wall and allows for a gap to be left at either side.

3. Corner showers and baths

Hopefully by now you’re starting to get the idea that it’s all about the corners. Having a corner bath or shower will free up space in the centre of the room, allowing easier navigation around the bathroom.

4. Wall mounted heated towel rails

Instead of having small, bulky radiators that stick out into the bathroom, why not have a wall mounted towel rail? They make great use of the height of the bathroom, providing greater physical space where you can heat towels without sticking out from the wall too far. Models such as the small Signelle heated towel rail look stunning and take up very little wall space.

5. Cabinet mirrors

Mirrors are known as the number one accessory for creating the illusions of space in small rooms and cabinet mirrors are a great way to make use of this technique. They provide extra storage space and also hide items from view, giving the appearance of an uncluttered room.
