Designing a bathroom can be a real challenge, especially if you’re working with a small space. There’s so many elements - bathtub, shower, sink, toilet - it even needs to be a bathroom laundry combo sometimes. How are you going to fit it all in when your floorplan is limited? You’ll find inspiration and ideas in our picture gallery. Whether you’re looking for tile designs, layouts, colour schemes or decor ideas, we’ve got you covered! Here’s how you can use it best:
Use filters to narrow down images
You can choose from different styles like modern, traditional or scandinavian. You can choose from different primary colours like red, blue or green, or simple black and white - or browse colour schemes. You can choose different cabinet styles, finishes and benchtop materials. Your filter selections will help narrow down your search and show you images that are more relevant to what you’re looking for. You can even filter by bathroom location and look at small bathrooms in Sydney only - and if you like a design, you can contact the professional who has done the work!
Save your favourite ideas
Each photo has a ‘save’ button which allows you to collect your favourite images in ideabooks. You can then share your ideabook with your interior designer or builder and provide a great visual brief with images to convey your ideas. That’s usually easier than trying to explain what you want without necessarily knowing the industry terminology. The experts can then help you with the finer details, like how to make a small bathroom look bigger, or how to choose the right tiles.
Consider design as well as practicality
The prettiest colour scheme won’t make up for a poor layout, so decide on how you’re going to use the room first. Do you need it to double-up as a laundry as well? Then think about how that could work without getting in the way of using the bathroom otherwise. You should also consider your unique space. Thinking of a dark colour scheme? If your bathroom has no window, you may want to think again. Also, who is going to use the room? If grandma lives with you, consider a design that’s suitable and accessible for the elderly.
Find the right professional
While you are collecting your ideas, pay attention to the professionals that did the work - you can see their names under each photo. It may happen that you end up saving lots of photos from the same designer, in which case it would make a lot of sense to contact them for a quote.
