5 Interesting Bathroom Layout Ideas

If you're wanting to renovate your bathroom and feel like the current layout doesn't work for you, you may feel unsure about what can be done to improve it. Redesigning a bathroom layout can be as easy as just swapping a few things around, but sometimes you need to start from scratch and think outside the box. In this blog post, we are exploring 5 ideas for you to consider that go beyond the standard layouts we are used to:

1 | Put the bath within the shower

A popular option for smaller bathrooms is to put the bath within the shower but not below it. This takes up less space than a completely separate shower and bath, but still gives you the luxury of not needing to combine the two. However, it's important to consider the implications of having the bath right next to the open shower - which is that everything will get wet and may need a wipe.

2 | Give the toilet it's own room

If you have enough space, you may want to create a WC within the bathroom itself. This is particularly helpful for Ensuites as it can make the space more versatile for two people to use at the same time. Houses often have a main bathroom with a separate WC anyways, but if you don't and you have enough space, this could also be a good solution for a main bathroom that gets used by multiple people.

3 | Hide the shower and/or toilet behind the vanity

It's not always necessary to put everything against the outside walls of the bathroom with an open space in the centre. If you have a large square bathroom, you may benefit from adding a few more walls to break up the space. This can be done by creating a wall for the vanity to sit against in the middle of the room, which is open on one or both ends to gain access into the shower and/or toilet located behind the vanity wall.

4 | Enclose your shower with a wall

This one is similar to the idea above, but is more about creating wall space for towels. Often, you may find that once you placed everything you want in the bathroom, you have run out of space for towel rails or hooks. A simple solution to this could be swapping the glass shower screen for a wall instead. However, if you have a very small bathroom, a full height wall could close in the room too much. In that case, we recommend using only a half height wall (high enough to place your towel rails onto) and having a glass shower screen above that.

5 | Break up the double vanity

If you have a bathroom which has a large window or door centred to a wall which makes it difficult to fit a larger double vanity, you may prefer to break it up into two single vanities instead. This is also helpful to create more space for two people to be using their basin at the same time. If you have a lovely large window between them, this also could be the perfect place to put a bath!

I hope these ideas have been helpful! If you want to find out more about how we can help you with your project, get in contact with us below:
