Small bathroom? So what?

The Acanto series from Geberit combines a clear design with organic shapes and smart detailed solutions that meet the most diverse bathroom requirements.

Just because your bathroom is small does not mean you cannot design or renovate it the way you’ve always dreamed about…

Bathroom renovations can be a costly undertaking, which means good planning and durable products are essential. The result is long-lasting pleasure in the bathroom. Studies show that the bathroom is one of people’s favourite places for switching off and recharging their batteries. However, they also say that the average bathroom has a floor area of not quite 7 square meters. That means there’s not much space for the bare essentials, let alone a place for feeling at ease. Does that mean you have to bid farewell to hopes of a dream bathroom? Not necessarily. Even though your own bathroom may fall short of the dimensions of the bathroom landscapes shown in glossy magazines, there are always ways and means of creating a sense of spaciousness and comfort.

The trick is to reduce the solely functional elements to a minimum and to conceal things such as the cistern and washbasin trap. This is achieved by using half or room-height installation walls that not only hide the technology but also serve as room dividers, providing an uncluttered look and creating a certain added sense of comfort. So, the answer is yes. Yes, it is possible to design a comfortable bathroom even when space is limited.

Here are a few helpful insights to keep in mind when designing your bathroom:

The Luxury of Space

Simply installing a new wall-hung WC and washbasin with matching cabinet results in a much tidier and cleaner bathroom. Among other reasons, this is due to the free space underneath the toilet and washbasin area, which makes the room appear larger.

Cleanliness Means Comfort

A well-designed bathroom is not just a question of designs and colours – hygiene and cleanliness also play an important role. Avoiding corners and edges – as can be seen in the example with the wall-hung WC – eliminates nooks and crannies which would otherwise have to be cleaned carefully. The less time spent cleaning, the more time you have to enjoy your bathroom.

Harmonious Design

When you buy a new sofa, you have to make sure that it fits in with the style of the rest of your apartment. A harmonious look is also in demand when choosing the toilet, washbasin and furniture in the bathroom. After considering space and comfort when fitting out the bathroom, the design is the cherry on the cake in creating a perfect bathroom ambience.
