Having a small bathroom has its drawbacks; whether there just isn’t enough storage available, or you just don’t have enough room to fit that washing basket in.
Here at Osprey Bathrooms we understand that the contemporary bathroom often requires having more space, so we’ve compiled a few little tips and tricks to help you get the most out of your space!
Tall, thin storage units are the perfect addition to any small bathroom. These units are able offer a massive amount of storage space for your towels or toiletries, and take up little to no floor space; if they’re wall-mounted storage units, even better!
The beauty of these storage units is that they come in so many different finishes and sizes that are ideal for a bathroom setting, so there will always be a storage unit that fits with the design theme of your bathroom!
Having Your Toilet and Sink in One Unit!
Having a unit that incorporates both your toilet and your sink saves a whole lot of unnecessary space in the room. Keeping everything close by and accessible, this is the perfect way to keep wasted space to a minimum.
Struggling to find something to fill those pesky corners with? Why not put your bathroom suite into the corners of your room to free up some of those walls for a luxurious bath?
These are also especially ideal for extremely small spaces, such as a downstairs bathroom or an en suite.
Mirrored Units or Walls
If space is tight to begin with and you’re looking to create the illusion of a bigger room while saving as much space as possible, mirrored storage units are here to help.
Mirrored units are usually quite slim line in design to avoid protruding too much into the room. The mirrored fronts of the doors reflect light around the room and create a sense of space.
If your room is especially small, or you just simply want to have a more contemporary design, units can be fitted with sliding doors to minimise the amount of space needed to get into your unit. This is ideal for very small bathrooms, as well as creating the impression of a bigger room.
Mirrored walls are also an excellent way of making your bathroom visitors feel like the room is bigger than it is. Although this doesn’t provide any storage facility, it does create a bigger, more noticeable sense of space.
Quite an obvious one, we know, but having this two-in-one unit in a limited space bathroom is quite helpful!
Having both units in one place, rather than having a separate bath and shower, means that more space is freed up in your bathroom. As they come in a range of different lengths and sizes, fitting a shower bath in your bathroom has become even easier!
This unit gives you the option of having both a bath and a shower, rather than having to sacrifice one or the other for the sake of space!
Small bathrooms don’t need to feel cramped and uncomfortable, and we hope you have gained some inspiration from some of these ideas!
Here at Osprey Bathrooms, we're all about creating the perfect bathroom to fit your needs; big or small!

A bathroom is a quiet sanctuary where you can relax and unwind after a long day. For many people, a large, luxury bathroom is something that dreams are made of, particularly if you are restricted on space, however there are a few things you can do to maximise the size of your bathroom.
At Osprey Bathrooms, we specialise in providing luxury bathrooms in Glasgow, and here is our advice on how you can make your small bathroom appear substantially bigger.
Natural light is a wonderful way to brighten up your space and can instantly make it feel bigger. It gives the effect of open spaces and, for those who love to save money, provides your bathroom with free, sustainable lighting all day long.
Make the most of your window by replacing the use of frosted glass with blinds or curtains wherever possible, as this will allow you to maximise your view while still maintaining your privacy. It is also a good idea to remove any clutter from your windowsill and instead replace it with some scented candles or potpourri.
Mirrors are not only an essential feature in any bathroom, they can also give the illusion of more space without taking up much room themselves.
If you are going for a modern look, using one large feature mirror will help you to instantly double the appearance of the room’s size. However, if wall space is at a premium or you would like to use a more traditional style, you may want to consider placing a few smaller mirrors around the room instead.
An open plan design is the best way to instantly open up your bathroom space. This can be achieved easily by installing a wet room as opposed to a bath or shower stall, and can also give your home a luxurious, modern look.
You can also get this effect through clever storage solutions that help to organise clutter. Recess shelves are particularly useful for bathrooms with limited space for cabinets, and will continue the theme of contemporary luxury.
As you can see, a luxury bathroom can become a reality no matter what the size of your home is, and at Osprey Bathrooms, we can provide you with the perfect bathroom to suit all your needs and preferences. For more information, contact us today by calling 0800 007 5344.
With bathroom design becoming more contemporary in nature, we are seeing more and more designs incorporating a freestanding bath tub. But what exactly does this solitary element bring to your bathroom?
Fits Any Style
Whether you are going for the more rustic look in your bathroom or ultra modern, there will be a style you suit you. With many designs already available, the main decision you will have to make to narrow down your choices, is what style of bathroom are you looking to create.
From there you will have a choice of whether you want the bath to stand alone or include a shower, whether you want feet on your tub or not and what size you want, making it an attractive focal feature of the room.
If you have a smaller bathroom, you don’t have to miss out on this trend. Some designs have a single flat end that can be positioned against a wall to avoid taking up unnecessary freestanding space, while making everything in the room appear bigger.
Freestanding bath tubs offer the user a whole new bathing experience, especially if they have been used to the standard bath tub that comes with a three piece bathroom suite.
Boasting a deep tub, taking a long, relaxing bubble bath that can be filled near enough right to the top becomes more a more relaxing and tranquil affair. Gone are the days of shallow bath tubs that don’t allow the water to fully cover you; forcing your intended peaceful soak to be cut short when the goose pimples arrive.
Creates a Statement
Not long ago, these tubs were only found in swanky hotels or posh apartments. Now that they are more easily affordable, anyone can incorporate this lavish statement piece into their bathrooms, no matter what size, shape, colour or style; there is something out there for every bathroom’s needs.
This also makes the tub the focal point of the room, rather than the toilet, which is what is most associated with visiting the bathroom for. Don’t be shocked if guests start commenting on how gorgeous your bath is, this takes away the spotlight from your toilet, which you might have been worried about getting judged on (don’t deny you haven’t judged the state of a friend’s loo!)
Here at Osprey Bathrooms, we love to create a space in which people are comfortable and able to relax in. Being the leading provider of high quality bathrooms in Glasgow, we can help you turn your drab, old bathroom into an attractive place of relaxation.
