Whether you’re looking for convenience or simply attempting to make the most out of limited available space, a cloakroom bathroom could be the perfect option for you. These bathrooms are absolutely ideal when it comes to maximising small spaces, such as under staircases or in refurbished walk-in cupboards.
Whilst these rooms can prove a bit of a challenge to achieve the perfect design, with a bit of thought and careful choice of bathroom fittings, you can have a fully-functioning easy access bathroom in a small space, anywhere in your home.
Be Ruthless About Keeping Only What You Need
When it comes to designing a cloakroom bathroom, the first thing you need to consider is just how essential some features are to your needs. If you can still easily access your main bathroom, you should ask yourself whether you need to include such features as a walk-in shower, or whether a toilet and sink will suffice.
Choose Smaller Bathroom Equipment
When it comes to choosing bathroom equipment such as such as the toilet and the basin, make sure that you choose models which are proportionate to the size of the room. Cloakroom basins are typically designed to offer a generous area for the washing of hands, but take up as little space in the room as possible.
Wall-hung fittings not only help to save space, they also work to make the entire bathroom look much larger by leaving the floor uncluttered. Wall-hung toilets are increasingly common in these bathroom spaces, and they sit flush with the wall.
Be Clever With Bathroom Storage
If you’re relying on the bathroom to also double up as a cloakroom, then you’re going to need to rely on intelligent storage solutions to keep it looking neat and tidy. Again, choose wall-hung storage options and rely on slim-lined or corner storage help you make the most of your available space.
Walk-In Showers For Cloakroom Bathrooms
You will rarely have the space for a bath within one of these bathrooms, so including a walk-in shower is the better option. Not only are they accessible to users of all mobility capabilities, they can also be slightly smaller than other shower types. Without the need for a raised tray, shower units can be a little more closely packed around the shower area, creating a comfortable, accessible and efficient showering option.
Here at Bathtime Mobility, we offer a diverse range of showering and bathing options for people of all levels of physical mobility. Our walk-in showers are easily accessible and can be fitted comfortably into a variety of spaces, including cloakroom bathroom designs.
