Are you thinking of renovating or having a new bathroom added to your home? If you are short on space for that bathroom, there are ways to maximize the area you have. There are many different kinds and shapes of showers, from round, to square, those that are included within a tub, and stall units. If you are interested in a shower within a tub, that would be a great space saver. The tub could be placed along one wall with the shower head at one end, preferably the right end as you stand in front of it.
Sliding shower doors will work well with this set-up and also work well in small spaces, as they do not need extra room to swing open. Polymer tubs and shower doors are made to last and stay beautiful as they age. Polymer surfaces are easy to clean, are guaranteed to stay attractive for many years. With this set-up, you will be able to take a warm, soaking bath or a comfortable warm shower in the same area.
Usually the bathroom is the room that is the smallest and where we have to decide how we will manage to have a shower, vanity, storage space and toilet in such a small area. If you already have a bathroom with tiled walls, or partially tiled walls, the tub with shower may be the best option. Many companies will make an effort to keep within the period of your home, be it traditional, contemporary or standard when it comes to renovating or placing a new bathroom.
Glass shower doors are a good selection and many come with a metal frame. The metal frame comes in polished chrome, blackened bronze, polished brass or satin finish. These frame finishes will blend well with other bathroom fixtures. These doors run a range of prices, which varies depending on the type you choose, such as clear or frosted glass.
Frameless sliding doors can be a much more economical option.
There is quite an array of small vanities in different styles, sizes and methods of installation. Some of these actually hang on the wall, while others have a mirror included and finishes to complement any bathroom design. The hanging vanity will definitely make cleaning and maintenance easier. You may need to add some shelving as a way to take care of storage space. This could be placed above the vanity or somewhere near the area.
To give your small bathroom the look of more space, consider a lower tub with a flat bottom, which is great for showering. If you do not have the space for a full bath, consider choosing a corner-shower enclosure. A corner-shower enclosure would save a lot of space without making your bathroom feel cluttered. Corner showers come in a variety of styles, colors and door shapes, materials and colors.
To make your corner shower look more up-to-date, try a sliding door or a shower screen. Sliding doors do not need space for door clearance and the glass door acts like a window, giving the illusion of more space.
The most important thing to do before you begin shopping for fixtures for your small bathroom is to measure your total bathroom area and try to imagine where you would place the tub, shower, toilet, vanity, and any additional storage space.
