Small bathroom furniture: The solution to life’s little problems

Small bathroom furniture: The solution to life’s little problems

Posted by Ruth Foster in Inspiration | 3 years ago 3 min read

Is your small space causing you big headaches? In this article, we show you how to solve 3 common household problems using small bathroom furniture.

Whilst many of us feel our main bathroom is very small, you’ll most likely find that it falls well within the average size for a UK bathroom.

Where your bathroom is likely to differ from the millions you’ll find up and down the country, is in terms of its layout. A window here, an alcove there and suddenly finding room in your bathroom is a lot trickier.

Thankfully, there are now many bathroom cabinets that are specifically designed to maximise the space in a small bathroom. Here at Victoria Plum, we understand the everyday issues and space constraints you face in your homes. That’s why we challenge our designers to come up with clever solutions to these problems.

So here are 3 little problems our customers have told us about and how they can be solved with a bit of creative thinking.

Problem: I’ve got nowhere to store my towels, spare toilet rolls and other knick-knacks

Solution: You can make great use space in your bathroom with a slimline storage unit.

The Eden white slimline storage unit from Orchard Bathrooms (pictured below), is just 250mm in width, and features an easy access cupboard, complete with soft close hinges. It also comes with a handy drawer for all those smaller items, like hair grips and bobbles.

If it’s just a small number of towels you need to store, why not fit a towel shelf from our Accents Options range of bathroom accessories? This can be mounted on the wall, keeping towels neatly stored away but also ready for use. There are traditional and contemporary designs to choose from, to suit any style of bathroom.

Problem: It’s difficult to keep the floor clean and tidy around my basin

Solution: Keep your floorspace clear with a wall hung vanity unit.

Not only will this make it easier to clean, but it will provide you with some much needed storage in the form of a handy drawer, or set of drawers, depending on the unit you choose. The Derwent white furniture range contains a range of wall hung vanity units, of varying width, that are designed with a short projection of 420mm and less. As opposed to a floorstanding vanity unit, wall hung versions also allow you to stand closer to your sink.

Problem: I’ve got a long, thin cloakroom, so there’s very little space for anything

Solution: Choose a slimline vanity unit and basin.

The Clarity Compact vanity unit and basin (pictured below) has been designed specifically with cloakrooms and tight spaces in mind, providing slimline bathroom storage just where you need it.

With a projection of just 215mm, it is ideal for rooms where space is at a premium and you can choose between light or dark finishes. To further make use of space, there is also a corner unit and basin.
