Smart ideas for compact bathrooms

Posted by Adam Chard in Inspiration | 5 years ago 2 min read

Searching for small bathroom ideas? At, we never shy away from a challenge, which is why we've come up with these smart ideas for compact bathrooms.

According to a recent customer survey, the average-sized UK bathroom is around 2.4m x 2.7m, which, if you think about it, at 6.48 sq. m, isn't much bigger than 2 king-sized mattresses laid side by side. Fitting everything you want into a space this size can be problematic. It's also true that your cloakroom may potentially be the only bathroom that guests and visitors ever get to see, so it's important to make a lasting impression.

Today there are a host of bathroom items available on the market for smaller spaces, including short-projection furniture, wall hung units, easy access drawers, corner basins, toilets and shower enclosures, all of which make smart use of every available inch. Wall hung units in particular can leave the floor entirely visible and help to create an impression of space.
