Design ideas to inspire your cloakroom

When planning installation of a cloakroom, the main goal is to make the best use of a small space and create the illusion of the cloakroom being larger.
You can achieve this goal easily if you choose the perfect colour, room layout, specially designed cloakroom and compact bathroom-furniture.

Use Brighter Colour

Generally, light colours make a room look bigger and brighter.
Lighter, brighter coloured wall is more reflective and it can help to maximise the effect of the light available.

Vanity Unit and basin

Choose a compact vanity unit for your slimline basin, it will provide you extra storage for a smaller space.
This would be perfect for you to hide spare toilet rolls, cleaning products and toiletries inside.
Keeps the outside clutter free!

A floating or wall hung vanity unit can make the illusion of space.
It opens up more of the visible floor space which creates the illusion of a larger surface area.
Or if you are looking for traditional style, this Roper Rhodes Hampton Cloakroom Unit creates a feeling of period classic with its hand-painted finishes.

This Britton All in one Floorstanding Vanity & Basin provides the best efficient use of the space.
it holds loo roll and brush!

A well-placed mirror

Use of a well-placed mirror can create the illusion of a greater bathroom space, reflecting the available light and giving the impression of further space at eye level.
Make sure you position it correctly, so you can use a focal point and angle to give the illusion of depth.
Mirrors will also reflect light to make a room brighter and bigger.
A stunning combination of light and glass, this Vitra T4 Single Door Illuminated Mirror Cabinet provides you extra lighting and also satisfy all your personal grooming needs.

Door positioning

Burlington 500mm Wall Hung Toilet

If possible make sure your door opens outwards, or even choose sliding or folding door to create the least impact in the room.
These are sometimes called “pocket doors” and slide into the door frame and wall cavity area.
Opening the room up without worrying about hitting bathroom furniture or having to shuffle around the door into the room!

Extractor Fans

Generally, unless you’re lucky, there is no window in a cloakroom. Therefore a good ventilation is important here.
This Vectaire X-Mart Advanced Deluxe Axial Fan operates at a quiet 37 decibels and takes just 15 Watts to power.
The low noise, low energy fan is an efficient way of keeping bathrooms clear of excess moisture and odours.

Blends with natural materials

A key material that brings a tactile natural element into your bathroom design is wood.

This is an excellent example of the elegant mixture of natural materials that can be suitable for a modern bathroom design.

You can also add more of a natural element by using an oak toilet seat.
