The best accessory ideas for small bathrooms

Dealing with small household spaces can be a challenge, and getting inspiration for a ‘bijou’ bathroom can be the most difficult task of all.

Here, we’re going to take a look at how you can make the most of the space you’ve got by choosing the perfect bathroom accessories to compliment the main fixtures and fittings.

You can sometimes feel quite limited when it comes to design, but it doesn’t have to be that way. 

Bathrooms Direct Yorkshire works with innovative designers and brands who continually come up with remarkable solutions for smaller spaces. A good example is Keuco’s double towel holder - we think it’s a masterpiece!

There are many others to choose from, with some of the most popular including Villeroy & BochWaters BathsVictoria and Albert and Hansgrohe.

The Bathrooms Direct Yorkshire team want people to fall in love with the smallest room in the home and feel joy each time they enter - and bathroom accessories are key to this!


Storage is key

First up is the age-old problem of storage. But bathroom shelves aren’t always the answer.

Many properties don’t have any integral storage in the bathroom, which means items can end up cluttering surfaces and floor space. 

When space is limited, products like the Geberit Xeno2 Side Cabinet mean that your bath doesn’t get surrounded by tubes and bottles and the windowsill isn’t home to toothbrushes and razors.

Many bathroom storage units come in a variety of sizes, meaning that if you find something that you love, there’s a good chance you can find a version to fit your own unique space. 


Time to reflect on space 

mirror is a must-have for any bathroom - it helps create the illusion of space and makes the room brighter, alongside its primary function.

So when you’re tight on space, combining a mirror with a unit makes perfect sense. 

One option to consider is the super-slim Keuco Royal Universe Mirror Cabinet, which uses space-saving LED technology to great effect. 

Mirror units come in a myriad of styles and, again, there are various widths to choose from on many designs, catering for more compact spaces.


All is vanity...

Under sink vanity units are ideal for providing extra storage in smaller rooms.

They remove the clutter that can overtake any bathroom regardless of its size and provide extra hidden storage space.

It’s best to choose a vanity unit with built-in shelving and/or drawers to make everything as organised as possible. There are a few options to consider, such as the Geberit Icon small vanity unit.


Don’t shelve your ideas

If you lack space for freestanding storage, then good-quality bathroom shelves are the perfect solution.

For inspiration, take a look at Keuco’s great range of modern bathroom shelves, including corner shower shelves and contemporary glass bathroom shelves which work well under a wall-mounted mirror, like the Moll Glass Shelf.


Accessorise in style

Once the major space and storage issues have been optimised, then it’s time to look at getting creative with smaller items such as towel holders and toilet roll holders. This can be the really fun part! 

Bathroom accessories like soap dishes, tumblers and robe hooks don’t take up too much room, so you can start to express your individuality in these small flourishes. Nothing beats a good toilet roll holder!
