Cloakroom Suites are a common feature in many houses nowadays, as the modern family increasingly finds that having just one bathroom is not enough for their needs. Whether they are tiny spaces with just enough room for a toilet and basin, or slightly more spacious, adding a cloakroom to a home can bring an element of ease and convenience to the property. Getting the best out of a cloakroom means learning how to work with the more confined space. Fortunately there is an increasing number of purpose built cloakroom suites to choose from, with proper cloakroom vanity units, cloakroom basins and pedestals and even smaller cloakroom toilets all widely available from Bella Bathrooms.
Things to Consider when Designing Cloakroom Suites:
Create a Spacious Feel
The cloakroom will most likely be the smallest room in the house, so attempting to make it feel spacious is important. Bathroom suites designed specifically for cloakrooms are essential, as their smaller dimensions fit easily into the more compact room. We have an extensive range of bathroom suites for you to choose from. Their attributes are also designed purposefully to fit into petite spaces, giving full functionality but with less of the bulk of a standard bathroom suite.
Clever Storage Ideas
Now that you’ve made the room feel more spacious, it’s time to maximise user functionality to ensure you can still enjoy and use the room to its maximum. Clever storage ideas are one of the best ways to make the best of a cloakroom; these rooms are often used, not just as a second bathroom suite, but also, as the name might suggest, a place to put coats. Winter coats that aren’t in use might be put in the cloakroom, along with heavy winter boots, umbrellas and other outdoor accessories. Employ a back-of-the-door storage system for the most convenient housing of these items; it keeps them out of the way when the door swings open and shut, and whilst guests are using the facilities.
Invest in a Vanity Unit
Another great way to maximise the space in this room is to utilise a vanity unit which combines a basin with integrated storage below. Many people use this space for different things; the household cleaners that don’t necessarily belong in the kitchen such as the shower screen spray or tile grout pen, the first-aid kit, or household appliances such as irons and hairdryers. Some simply use them as space for spare toiletries like shampoos, guest soaps and bath salts that would clutter up other bathrooms in the property. Either way, opting for a clever dual purpose fitting such as a corner fitting cloakroom vanity unit keeps clutter out of site to open up the space.
