Whether you’re renovating for the first time or have some experience with previous projects, you’ll likely already know just how important it is to get your bathroom’s layout right. Ensuring that everything fits comfortably and plays to the strengths of your specific bathroom size is the key to achieving a functional, and stylish space. So, from downstairs toilet size advice to tips on getting that dream master bathroom layout, we’ve gone over some of the most common bathroom size options in order to help you make the right decisions. 

Downstairs Toilet

Downstairs toilets are usually the smallest of all bathroom sizes. This tends to make them the bathroom that people put the least thought into when renovating. However, they’re far more important than you’d think. In addition to being the only bathroom on the ground floor, they’re also the bathroom most likely to be used by guests. So, if you’re wanting to leave a good impression it’s important that yours is as practical and good-looking as can be. To make the most of space here, we recommend looking at compact alternatives to standard products. The Series 300 Black Cloakroom Bathroom Package, for instance, provides excellent functionality without leaving a hefty footprint.

Ensuite Bathrooms

Ensuite bathroom size varies massively depending on the bathroom layout in question. If you’re wanting to experience the luxury of an ensuite but are put off by the amount of space required, you’ll be pleased to know that it is possible to create them to have a small footprint – with some options almost as low profile as the minimum toilet sizes mentioned above. You will however need to choose its fixtures and fittings wisely. 

To get the best out of your compact ensuite, we suggest abandoning plans for adding a bathtub. You’ll want to free up as much floor space as possible to give the impression that the room is bigger than it seems. Instead, opt for a stylish quadrant shower, such as the one featured in the Stockholm Matt Black Ensuite Package pictured below.

Master Bathrooms

An expertly designed master bathroom could well be the crowning glory of your home. A sanctuary in which to relax and rejuvenate after long days, when planning the space we suggest that you consciously make decisions that aim to increase comfort at every turn.

Every good master bathroom needs a grandiose tub. We’re big fans of the Westbury Traditional Bathroom Package which comes equipped with a dreamy 1700mm slipper bath that’s extravagant enough to act as a focal point in its own right.

Your average master bathroom will be around 2.5m x 3m, but feel free to dedicate more space to it if you have it. Just be wary of making it too big as bathrooms with large open spaces can often end up feeling a bit cold and clinical.

The epitome of luxury, this Traditional Bathroom Suite is our choice for bathrooms in which size is no object.
