Bathroom Inspiration & So Much More!

Welcome to the Bathroom & Beyond blog.

Are you challenged by the constraints of a small bathroom? Don't fret! While limited space may seem daunting, it also offers a canvas for innovative solutions that combine functionality with flair. Let's explore a range of strategies and accessories to help you optimise your compact bathroom, transforming it into a stylish and efficient oasis.



Multi-Functional Fixtures:

Embrace the efficiency of multi-functional fixtures designed specifically for small spaces. Look for compact vanity units that integrate storage, a sink, and a mirror into a single cohesive piece. These versatile solutions not only save space but also streamline the aesthetic of your bathroom, creating a sleek and organised environment.

Strategic Storage Solutions:

In a small bathroom, every inch counts. Maximise storage potential by utilising bathroom furniture. Consider installing recessed shelves or built-in niches in the shower area to keep toiletries and essentials within easy reach without cluttering the room. By optimising storage, you can maintain a clean and uncluttered aesthetic while ensuring everything has its place.



Streamlined Layout Design

Thoughtful layout design is essential in a small bathroom. Opt for a space-saving layout that maximises functionality while maintaining an open and uncluttered feel. Consider positioning fixtures such as the toilet or sink in corners to free up central floor space. Wall-mounted vanities and toilets create a sense of spaciousness by minimising visual clutter and maximising floor area.

Strategic Lighting Choices

Illuminate your small bathroom with strategic lighting to enhance its ambiance and functionality. Incorporate a mix of L.E.D Mirrors, task lighting, and accent lights to create layers of illumination that highlight key features and enhance the overall atmosphere. Consider installing a skylight or frosted glass window to introduce natural light, making the space feel brighter and more inviting.

With these smart solutions for maximising space and style, you can unlock the full potential of your small bathroom. Whether you're updating a compact ensuite or revamping a cosy powder room, these strategies will help you create a space that's both practical and beautiful. Start implementing these ideas today and discover the transformative power of thoughtful design in your small bathroom.



The ensuite bathroom is not just a functional space; it's a private sanctuary where you can escape the stresses of daily life and indulge in moments of relaxation and rejuvenation. Whether you have a compact ensuite or a spacious retreat, there are endless possibilities for creating a stylish and functional bathroom that reflects your personal taste and enhances your daily routine. In this blog, we'll explore a variety of ensuite bathroom ideas to inspire your next renovation project and transform your space into a luxurious retreat.



Spa-Inspired Oasis:

Add warmth and texture with wood accents, soft lighting, and aromatic candles to create a tranquil haven where you can relax and rejuvenate.

Maximising Space in a Compact Ensuite:

Make the most of limited space in a compact ensuite with clever design solutions and space-saving fixtures. Opt for wall-mounted toilets and vanities to free up valuable floor space and create a more open feel. Instal one of ourl mirrored cabinets and recessed shelves to maximise storage without sacrificing style, keeping the space clutter-free and functional. Choose light colours and reflective surfaces to enhance the sense of space and brightness in the room.




Luxurious Touches for Everyday Comfort:

Elevate your ensuite with luxurious touches that add comfort and convenience to your daily routine.

Your bathroom is more than just a functional space; it's a haven for relaxation and rejuvenation. The right flooring sets the tone for this sanctuary, impacting not only aesthetics but also comfort, practicality, and safety. Worry not, intrepid explorer of tile and grout! Bathroom & Beyond is here to guide you through the diverse world of bathroom flooring, helping you find your perfect step into serenity.




Navigating Material Options

When choosing your bathroom floor, consider both beauty and brawn. Here are some popular contenders:

  • Ceramic tiles: Classic and versatile, offering a wide range of colours, patterns, and textures. They're durable and water-resistant, making them ideal for high-traffic areas.
  • Porcelain tiles: Similar to ceramic, but denser and more water-resistant, perfect for wet zones like showers.
  • Vinyl flooring: Affordable and easy to maintain, vinyl comes in a variety of styles mimicking wood, stone, and even tile. Opt for water-resistant options specifically designed for bathrooms.
  • Natural stone: Luxurious and timeless, natural stone like slate or travertine adds a touch of elegance. However, it requires regular sealing and can be slippery when wet.


Beyond the Basics

Bathroom & Beyond offers flooring solutions beyond the standard tile. Consider these options:

  • Underfloor heating compatibility: Enjoy toasty toes, especially with tile or stone flooring, by choosing compatible options.
  • Slip resistance: Prioritise safety, especially in wet areas, with slip-resistant tiles or textured vinyl flooring.
  • Ease of cleaning: Opt for smooth, non-porous surfaces like ceramic or vinyl for effortless cleaning.



From Modern to Rustic

Whether you crave a sleek, contemporary look or a cosy, rustic vibe, your bathroom flooring should complement your overall design.

  • Modern: Opt for large-format tiles, geometric patterns, or minimalist vinyl in neutral tones.
  • Traditional: Embrace classic ceramic tiles in timeless colours like white or black.
  • Rustic: Explore natural stone, textured vinyl mimicking wood, or even patterned encaustic tiles.


Grout and Transitions

For a cohesive and finished look, don't forget the grout and transitions! Choose grout colour that complements your tiles and consider using waterproof sealants for added protection. Seamless transitions between different flooring materials ensure a smooth and safe experience.

Bathroom & Beyond is your partner in creating your dream bathroom floor. Visit us online or in-store to explore our options and see our fantastic range of luxury vinyl flooring.

At Bathroom & Beyond, we understand bathrooms are more than just utilitarian spaces. They're sanctuaries, throne rooms demanding comfort, efficiency, and a touch of style. 

But when it comes to choosing your toilet, there can be so many options around, leaving you wondering what to choose… So let us help you delve into the world of toilets, and guide you to your ideal bathroom throne!




Close Coupled Toilets

For the space-conscious sovereign, look no further than the close coupled toilet. This modern marvel combines the cistern and pan seamlessly, saving precious square footage and creating a sleek, minimalist aesthetic.

Bonus points for dual flush options, promoting water conservation without sacrificing performance! Check out our Close Coupled sets to see what we mean.

Exploring Your Options

While close coupled toilets are popular, Bathroom & Beyond offers a kingdom's worth of choices.

Back to wall toilets offer a clean, streamlined look. These toilets tuck the cistern into the wall, maximising space. See our range of back-to-wall toilets here.

Wall hung toilets, meanwhile, are ‘floating’ toilets that give your bathroom a spacious look, making them a particularly great option in smaller spaces. See our wall hung range here.



Material Matters

The material of your throne dictates both aesthetics and durability. Popular choices include:

  • Vitreous china: The classic choice, offering affordability and durability.
  • Ceramic: Similar to vitreous china, but available in a wider range of colours.
  • Acrylic: Lightweight and easy to clean, but may scratch more easily.


Attention to Detail

The perfect throne isn't complete without a comfortable seat. Opt for soft close seats for a gentler, quieter closing experience. Heated seats are a luxurious touch, especially on chilly mornings.

With our extensive selection of toilets, from space-saving close coupled wonders to luxurious bidet models, we're your one-stop shop for bathroom throne room transformations.  

Visit us online to explore our kingdom of options and find the perfect toilet to suit your needs and budget.
