How to Design a Small Bathroom

How to Design a Small Bathroom

Bathroom brochures often tease with large, spacious layouts, full of spacious bathroom designs that would look perfect in a spa. For many homeowners, bathrooms like this are a pipe-dream, since we live in such small houses. If you’re thinking of replacing your bathroom, but you can’t find a suite that fits, you’re not alone; 33 per cent of UK homeowners say their bathroom is just too small. Between 2003 and 2013, the average UK home lost around 2 square metres of floor space, and this downward trend is likely to continue. Lack of space is a practical challenge when furniture is made to a standard size, and that’s particularly true in bathrooms, where the plumbing may be difficult to move. In a small terraced property or bungalow, there often isn’t space for a full-sized bath, and moving around the room is difficult. In some parts of the country, many houses originally had outdoor toilets, and this has lead to clumsy adaptations of indoor space when the washroom was brought indoors. Look For Innovative Furniture Bathroom design has come a long way since the chunky avocado suites of the 1970s, and the best way to make the room feel bigger is to shrink the items within it. If a huge sink dominates your bathroom, look for a compact, contemporary alternative that sits flatter and neater against the wall. Making use of corners is essential too. If your furniture feels too claustrophobic when placed at right angles, consider a triangular sink or or toilet cistern so that one item sits at a diagonal to the rest. A slim, oval shaped wash...
8 Simple Ways To Help You Design Your Kitchen

8 Simple Ways To Help You Design Your Kitchen

Planning a kitchen doesn’t need to be a daunting task, here are 8 critical points you’ll need to consider if you’re going to get the kitchen of your dreams. 1. Think in Triangles Every successful kitchen design contains a simple formula, known as the kitchen work triangle, or golden triangle. This triangle is the invisible line between the hob, sink and fridge freezer. The idea is to make access easy between these three points, so that cooking, washing up and preparing food is simple. Avoid putting any obstruction (such as a wall, unit or doorway) between any part of the triangle, and you should find your kitchen feels convenient and spacious. 2. Plan Appliances When you buy a new kitchen, you may recycle old appliances, or sell them and buy something new. The key here is to think about the way you use the worktop surfaces, and whether the space could be better used as a cupboard. Does your fridge freezer fit neatly in the corner, or would an integrated unit look better? Is the dishwasher appropriate, or would a pair of dish drawers be more economical? 3. Set Up Storage Jot down a list of everything in your cupboards and make sure you’ve got a place to store it all. Don’t forget items that may be lingering elsewhere, like mops, buckets or your ironing board, and factor in things you need for family pets. The ideal kitchen has differing sizes of units to accommodate food, utensils and cleaning accessories, while giving you space to feed the dog and store the hoover. 4. Rearrange Furniture If you’re short on...
