What Houzz contributors are saying:
1. Leave no gapsWho says there has to be a space between the bath and vanity? Butting the vanity up against the tub, and in this case, the shower screen, delivers valuable extra bench and storage space, and makes cleaning a little easier too. What’s not to love?
Pleasing porthole styleThere’s something enticing about round mirrors and the pleasing reflection (though maybe not in the morning!) that is framed in a perfect circle. Round mirrors can have a danger of being too small for the space and feeling out of proportion to their surroundings, so be generous when choosing one for you bathroom. And try to stick to the rule of thumb that suggests the mirror should be the same width as, or slightly larger than, the basin.
1. Say goodbye to a separate shower and bathIf you’re planning on renovating your bathroom, a simple way to free up floor space is to ditch the idea of having a separate bath and shower, and work a shower-bath combo into the design instead. This space-enhancing trick will allow you to enjoy the best of both worlds – without compromising on your bathing needs and preferences – while providing more room for storage, as well as floor space to move around, too.When it comes to choosing where to position your shower-bath, it may be easier (and more cost effective) to install a showerhead over your bath, rather than moving it to a completely different spot altogether, as doing so will save you from making extensive changes to your existing plumbing.Standout shower-bath combos for smaller bathrooms
