In Brief

A fabulous compact bathroom has warm reclaimed timber features and lots of ideas for a small bathroom space.

In Detail

Looking for ideas for your small bathroom? This bathroom renovation will give you plenty. The reclaimed wood bath panel is one of the lovely design features that make this bathroom unique. This bespoke bathroom with a minimalist feel utilises every millimetre of space.

The brief

Our clients had a compact bathroom but were struggling to think of ideas to maximise the small space. The original bathroom was much smaller containing only a toilet, basin and shower cubicle. To enlarge the footprint of the new bathroom we moved the stud wall to create almost double the space. The entire room was also tanked so that if there were any leakages in the future, they would be contained within this room.

Reclaimed materials

Throughout the bathroom, we have used beautiful reclaimed iroko timber. Both the reclaimed wood bath panel and shelving were handmade in our workshop, bespoke for this design. The wood previously had a life as school lab benches, which we salvaged and breathed new life into. By planing and sanding back the graffiti we have revealed the beautiful wood grain below.

The rich chocolate tone of the timber looks stunning, especially when contrasted with the clean white of the bathroom fixtures.

Small bathroom ideas with a big impact

Maximising the space in the small footprint of this bathroom was the highest priority for our clients. They wanted to get a bath and a shower in the space so we had to think outside of the box when creating the design.

We chose to install a pocket door. This type of door slides away into the wall, meaning that we didn’t have to compromise on space for a traditional door to open and close. This meant that there was enough room to have a full-size bathtub with an overhead shower.

Minimalist design

This compact bathroom design has a minimalist theme. Due to the size of the space, we opted for ‘less is more’ in terms of design, keeping the look simple and uncluttered. The bespoke vanity unit features in-house designed and made-to-order “Runda” doors with circular cut-out handles. The minimalist design of these doors does not detract from the rest of the bathroom. We love the way they create a clean and polished ambience in this relaxing space.

The result

Our clients are delighted with the final result. Their ideas and vision have been executed perfectly within the small footprint of the bathroom, creating a functional and beautiful space that will last for years to come.
