Small bathroom causing you massive headaches? Don't worry, expert help is at hand...
When you’re considering a bathroom renovation, finding ideas and inspiration is often where you start. However, when you begin the finalising and decision-making, quite often your ideas are compromised by the reality of your project—notably your bathroom size and shape.
Having a small bathroom, doesn’t mean that you have to compromise on style or quality, as it is easy to find solutions that suit your space. We asked the UK’s Number 1 showering manufacturer, Mira Showers, for some top tips for creating a stylish small bathroom and maximising your space.
1. Create the illusion of space
When space is at a premium, creating the illusion of a larger space is a great way to emulate a light, airy feel in your bathroom space. Think about adding bathroom mirrors, and where these are in relation to your windows—for both practicality and to reflect light within the room.
Furthermore, by utilising large bathroom tiles—as opposed to smaller tiles—instantly gives the impression of a greater space. Also, consider this when choosing your shower. For example, if you are looking for an electric shower, the Mira Galena metallic electric shower (pictured below) is a great option, as its stylish metallic finish reflects natural light.
2. Replace your bath with a shower
Whilst baths can feel like a luxurious option, replacing your bath with a shower enclosure can be a more practical and space-saving solution. Be sure to explore your shower enclosure options, as there are different configurations available to suit your bathroom space—for example, if you have a recess or alcove in your bathroom. If space is compromised, then finding an enclosure with bifold doors can help, as these open inwards.
Be sure to choose a reliable shower tray, such as the award-winning Mira Flight Safe. This shower tray range has a patented anti-slip surface, which exceeds industry standards of safety—perfect for all the family, especially children and the elderly. Better still, the Mira Flight Safe range comes in all configurations—from walk in, pentagon and quadrant to rectangle or square. Again, you’ll be sure to find the right solution for your space.

3. Showers to suit your space
Finding the right shower for you is imperative—after all, a good shower can make or break your day! Depending on your water system, you may want or need a mixer or digital shower. To make it simple, here are some options which offer both a fantastic performance, stylish look and space-saving design:
In a smaller enclosure space, a built-in mixer shower is a great solution. A built-in mixer shower means that the valve is concealed within the wall, therefore maximising the enclosure space.
Try the Mira Adept BIV, with its stylish chrome design and easy to use controls. Better still, for the ultimate performance, the Mira Adept BRD+ (pictured below) offers you a dual outlet option—2 shower heads for a sensational showering experience. Alternatively, the Mira Element BIR offers a single control for ease of use and, with thermostatic technology, it ensures safe showering for all the family.
As with all Mira mixer showers, the Mira Adept and Mira Element ranges feature the patented Mira Magni-flo™ technology, which is proven to deliver up to 3 times more water flow than similar mixer showers.
Digital showers work in a similar way to mixer showers—mixing the hot and cold water supplies together, to reach your desired temperature. However, digital showers go one step further and offer you the ultimate in digital temperature and flow control.
Take a look at the Mira Vision digital shower range, which is packed with innovative features including a welcoming warm-up mode, so your shower reaches your desired temperature and waits until you get in. Also, if you’re eco-conscious, there is a handy eco mode to help you keep track of how long you shower for.
For the ultimate showering experience, discover the Mira Vision Dual digital shower (pictured below), which offers both a deluge and separate hand shower, as well as the ability to have both on at once.
