Compact Baths and Showers for small bathrooms

Fitted shower Unit

Sometimes a bathroom can seem too small to fit in both a bath and a shower, unless you opt for an in bath shower. However, this is not always the case. Before planning you should consider the relevant building regulations. If you can comply, there is no reason to settle for second best. Here at Homematas, we understand how important it is to have a fully usable and practical bathroom. As a result, we have produced this guide to compact baths and showers for small bathrooms.

Compact baths

Fitting a bath and a shower into your bathroom, doesn’t have to leave you feeling cramped. Compact baths and showers can save space in small bathrooms. There are a range of space saving baths that are available. These include:

  • Compact space saver baths- These are available in a range of different sizes and shapes. Often there are corners or edges that are cut to fit the shape of your bathroom. This makes them perfect for bathrooms with awkward corners and edges.
  • Corner bath- By being curved on one side, a corner bath is designed to leave more floor space open. At the same time, a corner bath fits perfectly in between two corner walls. This makes it a perfect choice for smaller bathrooms where floor space is tight.
  • A Thermaform bath- This is a specifically designed bath that has more internal bathing space than a steel bath. In fact, this can be up to 24% more. This means that you can opt for a smaller bath size without compromising on your long, luxurious, soaks in comfort.

Once you have a bath in your smaller bathroom, you may not think that there is a way to also fit a shower in there. However, compact baths and showers are growing in popularity. In fact, there are a large range of compact shower options available. These include:

  • The quadrant shower- Fitting perfectly into the corner of your bathroom, a quadrant shower has a curved front. This is perfect for saving external floor space, while still keeping plenty of room within. In addition, a quadrant shower is often fitted with sliding doors. This makes it much easier to fit into a small space, as you don’t have to be concerned about the doors opening onto other bathroom fittings.
  • In-fold showers- An in-fold shower makes use of doors that fold inwards. As a result, you don’t have to worry about the shower door bouncing off your other bathroom fittings. This saves external floor space.

In summary

There are many options available when it comes to redesigning and renovating your small bathroom. It is often possible to fit a bath and a shower into a small space, so you may not have to compromise. Why not contact the professionals at Homematas, to discuss your dream bathroom today?
