Designing a small modern en suite

One of the most luxurious things you can add to your home is your own en suite bathroom. Unfortunately, many homes don’t have a lot of room where they can build one, but even a wardrobe sized space can fit a tiny en suite, and there are plenty of ways to make it feel a little bit bigger than it really is.

If you want your en suite to look modern and uncluttered, you need to be careful what you choose to put in there. Try to keep the number of bottles and towels low or store what you need in the bedroom. If you really need some storage in the en suite itself, have open shelves so you’re not calculating how much room you can spare for doors and drawers.

Lighting is one of the easiest ways to improve a small room. If there’s no window, it’s particularly important to design your lighting strategically. Halogen spot lights will brighten the room within invading the space, and using mirror or mirrored surfaces to bounce the light will work wonders.

Choosing the right tiling too will make a huge difference to how your little en suite looks – the lighter the colour of the tiles, the better. Anything reflective or lightly coloured will make the space seem much larger. The size of the tiles is also important – very large ones can give the illusion of a more open room, and very small ones, such as mosaic tiling will have the same effect. Too much repetition on medium sized tiles will shrink the room though.

You should always remember to measure your shower, storage cupboard and toilet fixtures before installing them in a small bathroom and figure out the layout first. They might appear to fit but block your access to the door or shower if not laid out properly.

6 Piece Inda Touch Accessory Package

A bathroom is not complete until all the last minute touches are put into place such as toilet roll holders, soap dishes etc. Looking through pages in brochures often means that the accessories do not necessarily suit, or match the surroundings and it can be both time consuming and perhaps daunting for some.

We have put together a number of packages which solves the problem and the Inda Touch 6 piece accessory pack is just one example. All essential items are included which comprise: Tumbler Holder 8 x 11h x 13cm (Chrome), Soap Dish 13 x 6h x 15cm (Chrome), Toilet Brush Holder 9 x 40h x 9cm (Chrome), Towel Ring 22 x 24h x 8cm (Chrome), Robe Hook 5 x 5cm (Chrome), and Toilet Roll Holder with Cover 16 x 14h x 7cm (Chrome), all the essentials in one easy package.

Bathroom accessories add luxury and style!

There are two types of bathroom accessories: those that serve a practical purpose, and those that are there just to add a touch of style. Ideally, even practical accessories should reflect your overall design theme, which is something to keep in mind as you shop for these must-have items.

Most people find that the easiest way to shop for these essentials is to buy one of the many accessory packages that are now available. These popular accessory packages come in a variety of options, but one that has proved to be a winner is the Inda Forum 5 piece package and comprises a tumbler holder, soap dish, wall mounted tooth brush holder, a double robe hook and a toilet roll holder all finished in high quality chrome.

Those all important last details in bathroom design

Bathroom accessories are often overlooked when people are making the last but important details when completing a new bathroom or en-suite, but it is these that can pull together what is already a good bathroom, giving it a classy look. Think what would happen without soap dishes, you don’t want a sticky mess on the side of the basin or bath. A towel rail is a must and in today’s modern bathroom a heated one is a priority for many. You would not want the toilet roll sitting on top of the cistern, not when you can get one that looks good and is fully functional too.

It is these little details that can make your bathroom a pleasure to use or a nightmare in the making. If you’ve ever wondered where to store your bathrobe while you are taking a shower, longed for a magnified or illuminated mirror to apply your makeup, or thought there must be an alternative to balancing your toothbrush in a mug on the windowsill then modern bathroom accessories are the way forward.
