Tips and tricks
The short-projection basin
Choosing the right basin when space is limited is crucial. It must take up as little space as possible in the room but at the same time be functional and easy to maintain. If you choose a short-projection basin with a deep bowl you get the space to wash your hands properly and handle a forceful flow of water without ending up with water all over the floor. When choosing your vanity unit it is recommended to use the maximum wall space available rather than a model that might only be designed to hide the bottle trap or pipework. Even an extra 300 millimetres gives enough room for storage of bulkier bathroom items such as wc rolls and cleaning products.
At Dansani we have many different short-projection basins and many styles have narrower width options also. This is relevant both in very small bathrooms and in longer narrow rooms.
Optimal organisation of your cabinets, units and drawers
Make full use of every square millimetre of space with small bathroom ideas such as our wooden dividers and small trays to compartmentalise the drawers – thereby avoiding clutter & mess. You can also create your own or search for suitable ones but remember to choose models that are easy to clean and that can withstand moisture & humidity in a bathroom environment.
If you have space leftover in a unit or cabinet our laundry bag is suitable for many models so that dust collecting laundry is completely out of sight.
Enlarge the room with more mirrors
More mirrors in the room is one of the small bathroom ideas that makes the room appear visually bigger. Choose wall units with mirror doors or perhaps even a mirror cabinet with lighting for additional storage. With a full length or dress mirror you also get the opportunity to view yourself one last time before you rush out on a busy Monday morning.
Make full use of the space between mirror and basin
If space for your smaller everyday bathroom items is limited then fit a shelf between the mirror and basin. However, you should ensure the shelf is suitable for use in a bathroom environment where moisture & humidity are inevitable.
Make space for storage
Use the space with wall units
Break with tradition and place your units in the space where they should be. The area above the toilet is perfect and often not used. If you choose wall units with a slimmer depth you can still get plenty of storage space without the risk of hitting your head when you stand up. With small bathroom ideas such as asymmetric solutions you can still create an airy feel within your design.
Make full use of the wall space and get extra storage
Using a vanity unit with the extra height of 64cm can make use of the wall space under the basin providing additional storage for among other things towels and cleaning products which usually would not fit in the lower drawers. For small bathroom ideas in a narrow but longer bathroom you can choose a smaller basin and make full use of the wall space with a tall unit for additional storage. If your bathroom is very narrow you can place two wall units of slimmer depth on top of each other so that they do not take up much space in the room.
Use the mirror for storage
If you choose a mirror cabinet instead of a mirror you can store all your smaller everyday bathroom items within easy reach. The layout of our mirror cabinets is fully thought through and for small bathroom ideas we offer little details such as accessory magnets (e.g. for scissors and nail files), double-sided mirror doors, magnifying mirrors, integrated lighting and electric sockets which all means the space is the only thing being compromised on.
Choose the right shower
Get space for a shower enclosure in small bathrooms
Having freedom of movement in the shower is essential to experience well-being under the warm water. Our range offers many different solutions where you can push the doors against the walls when not using the shower enclosure. With these fold away solutions you can avoid choosing between the limitation of your space in the shower or the wasted space the shower enclosure takes up while not in use.
In small bathrooms, it is necessary to place the shower and furniture next to each other. To avoid moisture damage on the furniture it must be protected against water. Here the solution is a fixed shower wall with an opening to the shower area or a hinged door with a fixed panel. The solution with the fixed panel also protects the furniture and makes it possible to have a closed shower enclosure with a door.
Shower in the bath without water on the floor
Limescale on the mirror & furniture and a wet floor are often the results when the shower is in the bath. One of the small bathroom ideas to avoid this is a light and elegant bath screen which can be pushed in front of the shower and fixtures after use – and at the same time frees up space in the bathroom.
