6 Top Tips for your small modern bathroom

They say good things come in small packages, so what makes your small modern bathroom any different? 

One of the most frequently used rooms within any home, your bathroom should prompt complete relaxation from the moment you step inside. Uncluttered, airy and open designs can inspire immediate wellness benefits within your space regardless of its size. And while we'd love to live in a world of self-cleaning bathrooms, we know all too well that this regularly used space can become overrun with clutter. So, before you buy for your small modern bathroom, check out some of our top tips for shaping a minimalist bathroom design that works for you...


1. What are your needs?

While visuals are important in creating a small modern bathroom you'll love, practicality also goes a long way. When looking to make the most of your space, consider how you'll use it.  Do you own a seemingly endless collection of self-care essentials? Substantial contemporary bathroom storage is a must! Want space to accessorise your basin? You're going to love a furniture unit with a worktop

Don't forget to consider your living situation. Are there young children in the family? You may want a bath compatible with a bath screen for seamless shower bath functionality. Sharing with someone who has limited mobility? An easily accessible walk-in shower could be most suitable for everyone in the household. Take a moment to really think about your lifestyle to make your small modern bathroom ideal for the every day.

2. Evaluate your Space

From tiny cloakrooms and awkward en-suites to small modern bathrooms - stop accepting limitations and start recognising opportunities. With so many simple bathroom designs for small spaces available, making the most of those tricky corners and cumbersome alcoves couldn't be easier. 

Designed to bring big design to even the most compact cloakrooms, why not make a statement with the Popolo basin? Small but mighty, create a standout modern bathroom style with Matt Black or Matt White finish, or go conventional with White Gloss finish - the choice is yours! Stay on-trend with Glide II taps for a clean and contemporary look suited to any small modern bathroom. 

3. Keep it Minimalist

Slightly more room to play with? Enter Glide II contemporary bathroom storage for unmissable modern bathroom style. Measuring a compact 500mm in size, Glide II's wall hung design promises uninterrupted floor space in your small modern bathroom to create the illusion of a larger area. Complete with two substantial drawers to neatly store everything out of sight, Glide II is the perfect for relieving any storage crisis.

Glide II not for you? Check out our Infinity or Kai contemporary bathroom storage ranges, also starting at 500mm in size. Tie the look together with a wall-hung toilet for a small modern bathroom that never compromises on floor space.

4. Embrace Colour

Get creative with simple bathroom designs for small spaces. With colour at the heart of everything we do, no small modern bathroom has to get left behind! Want to bring subtle pops of colour to your space? Our brassware finishes promise an injection of colour for even the simplest of schemes. 

On the hunt for something more daring? Uncover design freedom across furniture, basins, enclosures, brassware and more for that perfect personalised look. Top off the scheme with hints of nature and there you have it - A stylish small modern bathroom with positivity created just for you!

5. Space for a Shower? 

Always on-trend and effortlessly space-saving, our Quadrant showers never fail to impress. Taking up considerably less floor space than a conventional shower, Quadrant showers provide outstanding practicality for the small modern bathroom while delivering the same exceptional performance. Like all our showers, our Quadrant showers have been finished with Crosswater Clear technology for hassle-free cleaning - giving you more time to get on with the things you enjoy.

Don’t have the room for a shower door that opens outwards? Check out our bifold and infold shower designs in Matt Black or Silver for an ultra-contemporary bathroom design that maximises space.

6. Prioritise Bathroom Accessories

The best kept secret to creating space in your bathroom? Mirrors. Reflecting light, mirrors help to keep the room looking bright and airy for the illusion of a much larger space, while providing amazing everyday practicality. For the best of both, give your small modern bathroom an extra boost with Mirrored Cabinets to maximise contemporary bathroom storage.

Continue the theme of a clutter-free, minimalist bathroom design with wall-mounted accessories to neatly hang your soap dispensor, toilet roll, toilet brush and more. Finish the look by decorating your clutter-free sides with candles, potted plants and other wellness items for complete relaxation in your small modern bathroom.
