Space-Saving Solutions: Compact Fixture Options for Small Bathrooms

Due to the scarcity of land in Singapore, the median size of new condominiums and BTOs has shrunk over the last decade. Homeowners are now faced with the challenge of designing and renovating their homes within tighter confines. Fortunately, style need not be compromised for space. When it comes to beautiful interior designs, endless possibilities exist, even with limited space. In this article, we’re here to share with you some of the compact fixture options tailored for small bathrooms, delving into innovative ways to make the most of every inch and create a stylish, functional oasis.


Multifunctional Vanity Units


Undermount Basin Cabinet


A clever solution for small toilets, multifunctional bathroom vanity units seamlessly integrate storage, sink and counter space into one cohesive design. Their compact layout maximises floor area while cleverly utilising both vertical and horizontal dimensions for optimal space management and organisation. For instance, storage cabinets may extend upwards towards the ceiling, capitalising on wall space without encroaching on the floor area. Along with built-in cabinets and drawers, they also provide ample storage for bathroom products and other essentials, keeping the washroom clutter-free. 


Ingenious Shower Configurations 


Shower System with Thermostatic Shower Mixer


Shower-related products have evolved over the years to meet the growing demands of consumers. Today we are blessed with a myriad of options, including ones that are ideal for use in smaller areas. Corner showers, neo-angle closures and shower-tub combos are some examples of practical, space-saving solutions that maximise bathroom space well. By fitting into corners and taking advantage of unconventional angles, these configurations free up valuable square footage for additional fixtures or pathways. Their compact design also fosters a sense of openness and airiness, creating the illusion of a larger, more inviting bathroom. 


Wall-Mounted Fixtures


Nature Mirror Cabinet


As their name suggests, wall-mounted fixtures refer to bathroom accessories such as sinks, toilets, cabinets and even showers that are mounted directly to the wall instead of being freestanding or resting on the floor. Attaching fixtures against the walls eliminates the need for bulky bases or pedestals that take up floor space. The best part? These smart designs can be positioned at varying heights to suit your preferences and optimise functionality. For instance, a wall-mounted sink can be installed at a height that allows for comfortable use, while also leaving space underneath for storage or foot clearance. Similarly, wall-mounted toilets can be positioned to create more legroom or fit into tight corners.

Folding and Sliding Elements 


Incorporating folding and sliding elements into a small bathroom is akin to unlocking a space-saving magic trick! Foldable shower screens, retractable mirrors and sliding doors or bathroom mirror cabinets offer dynamic solutions that seamlessly adapt to your needs while maximising available space. These versatile features enable temporary expansion or contraction of functional areas, such as enclosing a shower space only when in use or extending a mirror surface for grooming activities. As a result, the bathroom maintains an open and airy ambience, eradicating the need for swinging doors or fixed partitions that may encroach upon limited space. The flexibility of folding and sliding ensures efficient use of every inch, enhancing the functionality and aesthetic appeal of the bathroom. 


While space constraints may pose a challenge in interior design, there is no need to compromise either functionality or style. Both can share the spotlight, yielding a beautiful yet practical bathroom that impresses and elevates the washroom experience.
