Get Big Ideas for Small Bathrooms

Got a small bathroom but don’t want to compromise on style and functionality? When it comes to designing for bathroom sizes – sometimes as little as two to three square metres – creating a classy, on-trend yet functional bathing space can be a challenge!

Here’s a project that faced the same challenge, with a few great ideas that made a huge difference to the family living in this home, in terms of both style and experience.

One of the most common desires of those with a small bathing space is the need for a bath, especially for families with children.

A bath was a “must have” in this bathroom, which turned an everyday bathroom into a luxurious master bathroom exuding sybaritic indulgence. This deeply relaxing hydrotherapy spa bath ticked all the boxes, and when paired with a mixture of Crystal Glass Loft Black subway tiles and large format black Mek Dark tiles, creates an Insta-worthy bathing space!

When designing your compact bathroom, the more floor area that is visible the greater the perception of space.  A wall hung vanity and toilet are both excellent inclusions to achieve this effect.

This bathroom features the innovative Terrace basin with matching wall mounted cabinet, incorporating spacious natural oak integrated storage drawers. Designed by the Jacob Delafon team in France, the Terrace includes the unique “Free Drain” system which is hands free drainage – no centre waste hole required, nor the need to put your hands into the water.

Paired with the contemporary Avid basin mixer – a Red Dot award-winning tap – and matching Avid bathroom accessories, this bathroom is elevated to rock-star status.

When saving space is a priority, the toilet can be a key factor.  A wall-hung model, with cistern concealed in the wall cavity, will not only take less bathroom space but also creates more visual space by being elevated above the floor.  And for the seemingly impossible dream – having a bidet in a small bathroom – there IS a solution! The Veil Intelligent Wall Hung toilet is the perfect addition to the modern bathroom, featuring integrated bidet and comfort factors including heated seat, heated water wash with varying temperature levels, three wash functions, heated air-drying function, built in deodoriser and LED auto self-cleaning wand to name a few! What more could you want in a small bathroom!

So while space is definitely limited in a compact bathroom, your options for creating a stylish, highly functional bathing space are vast!

Introducing Terrace … bathroom furniture taking shape!

Terrace is an inspired new collection of bathroom furniture that showcases the timeless beauty of the geometric form, while cleverly integrating generous storage and hiding the not-so-pretty essentials (drainage and waste)!

The new Terrace range from Kohler features integrated vanity tops, vanities and matching furniture.

Designed in France by the Jacob Delafon team, Kohler’s Terrace Collection uses the rectangular form to create a family of vanities, basins and storage cabinets that showcases modernity in an utterly timeless fashion.

Rectangular ceramic basins, with an L-shaped profile, integrate with similar geometric shapes in a series of vanity base units – cleverly separated by a rectangular storage drawer.

The vanity features two pull-out drawers with ample space for storage of bathroom necessities.

Tower cabinets, echoing the same rectangular geometrics, offer vertical storage – some of which is accessible without opening the door. Both the vanity units and the tower cabinets feature soft close doors and drawers.

The Tower cabinet comes in a left or right hand opening option.

Inherent in the contemporary vanity unit design is a patented ‘Free Drain’ Waste system which is a concealed waste operated by a simple hob-mounted touch button to open and close the waste.

Materials are integral to the timeless elegance of the Terrace collection – crisp white ceramics for the vanity tops and basins are teamed with the beauty of natural oak for the accessories drawer of the vanity and the shelving and trim of the Tower Cabinets. Interiors of the accessories and base drawers also feature a beautiful hardwood finish.

A range of widths is available – from 600mm and 800mm to 1000mm and 1200mm plus a 1500mm double basin format.
