Posted by Nicky Kingston in Inspiration | 2 years ago 3 min read

Renovating a small bathroom requires creative thinking. Luckily, we've done all the thinking for you, with these clever space-saving bathroom ideas that'll rock your world.

Many (if not most) of us have a bathroom that we’d consider “small”. However, with the average UK bathroom size around the 2.4 x 2.7 metre mark, your own space may not be as small as you first thought.

Overcoming space issues is something that has been puzzling and intriguing product designers for years, and here at, it’s no different. To help you make the most of any small space, whether it’s a cloakroom, ensuite or main bathroom, we’ve come up with the following cleverly-designed bathroom products.

1. Combined toilet and basin

If you’re trying to squeeze an extra cloakroom, ensuite or bathroom into the tightest of spaces, this cleverly-designed combination toilet and basin might just be the best thing you’ve seen in a while!

Corners are incredibly underused spaces, especially in small bathrooms.

3. Bathroom butler

If you really don’t have space for a towel rail, this bathroom butler could be the best servant you’ve ever employed!

Made from hardwearing stainless steel with a sparkling chrome finish, the 3 arms swing individually to make optimum use of space, allowing you to easily hang towels for your guests.

4. Orchard Vertical shower bar valve

It’s not just around the basin or toilet where space issues occur. Often, shower enclosures or shower baths can feel a little restricted, especially if you choose a bar valve shower.

Well, we’ve thought of that too…
