Savvy storage, smart features, and clever layouts

Savvy storage, smart features and clever layouts can transform a small bathroom giving you a sense of space in what can sometimes be both the smallest room in the house, and also the most hardworking.

With over half (56%) of people in the SONAS 2022 Bathrooms Big Bathroom Survey saying they have run out of storage in their bathroom, here are some tips to help you overcome this problem. The aim is to create a space that oozes calmness and tranquility, both for setting you up for the day and helping you unwind in the evening. Having clutter on view is not conducive to that!

Here are some tips to help you reimagine your bathroom.

  • Wall mounted storage is ideal for small bathrooms. These allow you to see even more floor adding to a sense of space. Coming in a wide range of colours and styles these enable you to personalise your space. The clear floor below the vanity unit gives the optical illusion of more space. Wall mounted storage columns in matching colours can also help.

  • Make it look bigger with an oval bath. A free-standing bath incorporated in a small bathroom cuts corners to boost the impression of space.

  • Use mirrors to open up the space. Hang a large mirror over your wash basin to bounce the natural light around and make the room seem larger. Don’t be afraid to go big and bold. Or add two mirrors as done in this bathroom.

  • Some of the newest bathroom mirrors have some incredible technology. The Sansa Sound mirror from SONAS comes equipped with integrated Bluetooth speakers and a USB port, so you can easily connect your smart phone and listen to your favourite playlist.  Where you have the need for storage of small items, a mirrored cabinet is very useful option. Available with integrated energy efficient LED lights, illuminated cabinets are also a functional solution for high quality task lighting.
  • Make the most of your wall space. When limited with space many decide to sacrifice a bath but that’s not the only answer. A shower over the bath maximises the compact space. This makes the most of the space that you have.
