You find that if you’ve got a small bathroom you find yourself looking at the things you can’t have! This thinking isn’t good, especially when you actually look at the amazing options available to you. Shower enclosures are not what they used to be. Gone are the small cramped spaces with just enough room to wash your hair.


Regardless of the size of your bathroom you can have sleek and contemporary décor, minus the bath tub.


Quadrant shower enclosure

G6 Quadrant shower enclosure


A quadrant shower enclosure is ideal for a small bathroom as it can utilise an unused corner of your bathroom without taking up too much floor space. A quadrant tray has two straight edges and a curved front adjoining these and are available in 800, 900 and 1000 mm sizes. The doors on a quadrant shower always slide open, eliminating the room required for a standard hinged door.  The benefits of a quadrant shower also include the ease of movement around the limited space thanks to the beautiful curved enclosure and turning dead space into a highly usable shower area instead.


Recess shower cubicle

Tavistock Oxygen


Many small bathrooms are an unusual shape. This can often be due to re-location of the room from downstairs, making use of all the available space in an en-suite or adding an old airing cupboard into the room. You are therefore left with a room requiring much more thought to the design practicality and aesthetic. If you’re lucky enough to have a recess in your bathroom you don’t have to keep it as a cupboard. Transform it into a stunning shower enclosure as all you need is a door! The Tavistock Oxygen recess shower comes with a hinged or if your space by the recess is limited a bi-fold option. A great way to save space.


Walk in Shower 

Kudos Ultimate 2 wet room


A walk in shower in a great addition to a smaller bathroom due to the illusion it creates. The beauty of a walk in shower is the lack of restriction in your bathroom. With open ends and a somewhat floating glass panel, this is minimalist design at its best. What it also does, is create the illusion of more space, as there isn’t a designated shower tray or enclosure taking up space. The Kudos Ultimate 2 range have many walk in shower options. You can choose between deflector panels helping control the flow of water or opt for one straight panel. A straight panel only will need a wet room system on the floor and walls.


Wet Room


Wet room panels


A wet room; much like a walk in shower is amazing at creating the illusion of space. However, unlike a walk through shower these are often positioned into a corner making them ideal for a small bathroom. Creating an enclosure space without an actual enclosure leaves a sleek design. As a result of the glass panels, the light within the room bounces and creates an airy and spacious feel. The Kudos Ultimate 2 range offers panels of all shapes and sizes so you can customise your wet room, how cool is that? Or if you’re looking for something a little more straightforward you can look at the Coral wet room panels. A wet room is a great addition in any small bathroom.
