Flush out the clut­ter from your bath­room

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT -

“UK bath­rooms are renowned for be­ing small in size, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a stream­lined, func­tional de­sign,” says de­sign ex­pert David Gray.

He said: “With most of us con­stantly look­ing to pack more into our bath­rooms, stor­age has to be cleverer and more ver­sa­tile than ever be­fore.

“Com­pact, slim-depth van­ity units pro­vide much-needed stor­age space to help keep the room clut­ter-free.

“As well as free­stand­ing for­mats, many will have a wall-mounted op­tion to ex­pose valu­able floor space.

“Wall-hung basins and WCs are also great for this and can cre­ate the il­lu­sion of a larger space.

“Al­ter­na­tively, us­ing a run of slim depth fit­ted fur­ni­ture, paired with a slim depth semi-counter top basin, can ac­tu­ally give a small room a very stream­lined look and be in­cred­i­bly space­ef­fi­cient.

“Short pro­jec­tion WCs are also an ob­vi­ous de­sign choice, even more so if you go for a back to wall op­tion with a con­cealed cis­tern.”

Help­ing to keep clut­ter hid­den from view is one of the big­gest prob­lems in most homes.

David said: “Fit­ted fur­ni­ture is per­fect for cre­at­ing a seam­less, uni­fied look across the bath­room, while util­is­ing the room’s avail­able space.

“Meet­ing a range of stor­age needs, many units can be per­son­alised with clev­erly-de­signed and highly prac­ti­cal ac­ces­sories such as pull-out linen bas­kets, dis­creetly con­cealed toi­let roll hold­ers as well as drawer di­viders that help to keep ev­ery­thing in place.”

He added: “Wall-hung san­i­tary ware is per­fect for those look­ing to cre­ate a stream­lined and clut­ter­free bath­room.

“Not only does it look chic and con­tem­po­rary, but it’s par­tic­u­larly suited to the UK’s typ­i­cally small bath­rooms as it frees up valu­able floor space and makes the room seem much more spa­cious,” said David, a prod­uct de­signer at Roper Rhodes, spe­cial­ist in bath­room fur­ni­ture and prod­ucts.
