Small bathrooms that are ‘too small to worth with’ or ‘too small to look nice’ are common concerns among the general public. We know this because we’ve heard similar statements from some of our past customers.

Your bathroom space may be small but that doesn’t mean you can’t renovate it into something amazing or even fit a stunning new bathroom entirely.

To prove this to you, we’ve put together this quick and easy guide to small bathroom fitting. In this blog post, we’ll be running through all of the important elements that make up a small bathroom project that will revitalise your space.


Small Bathroom Design

Every great bathroom fitting project starts with an unbeatable design, and that applies to bathrooms of all shapes and sizes.

When the size of your bathroom is the biggest obstacle, the design becomes so much more important. To start, it makes sense for you to do a bit of research. Before approaching a bathroom fitting company, try searching for bathroom interior ideas for small bathrooms and popular small bathroom designs.

This will allow you to see some examples of what your new small bathroom could look like, and also you will have a better idea of what to expect when it comes to working with a professional bathroom design team.

Here at The Bathroom Place, we used advanced CAD, 3D and virtual reality technology to come up with your bespoke bathroom design. Plus, when you choose to have your bathroom fitted by us, your bathroom design is free of charge!


Small Bathroom Layout 

The ideal small bathroom layout will be different for each home, but usually, where small bathrooms are concerned, there are a few common boxes that must be ticked in order for a small space to look great and function properly.

The best layout for a small bathroom is one that prioritises space because this is the biggest downside to bathrooms that are on the smaller side.

If you’re currently dealing with a tight bathroom layout, just know that there are solutions around this issue, and it’s best to speak to a professional team like ours to tell you what your bathroom layout needs.

The most common bathroom layouts fall into one of three categories:

  • Master bathroom – the typical bathroom layout that has enough room for a toilet, basin and bath/shower at the very least
  • Cloakroom – commonly acting as a second bathroom, a cloakroom usually has room for just a toilet and basin
  • Three quarter bathroom – a bathroom layout that is smaller than a master and bigger than a cloakroom

Identify which type of bathroom you have, familiarise yourself with the layout and when you arrange a consultation, tell your bathroom fitter about your small layout and how you want to save as much space as possible.  


Small Bathroom Fixtures 

When it comes to bathroom fixtures for small bathrooms, you want to choose ones that a) look great in your new bathroom; b) function properly; c) don’t take up too much space.

As we mentioned before, achieving as much free space as possible is your goal, so it makes sense to use bathroom fixtures that were made with small bathrooms in mind. Bathroom collections such as the Elgin and Minuto collections would be ideal.

Small bathroom fixtures are important for your new bathroom as they will save that all-important space and also look stylish. This alleviates the common concern that compromising to save space means you have to compromise on style.


Small Bathroom Fitting Cost 

If we say that the average range for a typical bathroom fitting project is £6,000 to £30,000, for a small bathroom, you would likely be looking at the lower range, as the size and shape of a bathroom is a massive factor for pricing.

How much will a small bathroom remodel cost? £6,000 to £10,000 would be a rough price range to expect.

Of course, you can try cutting the price to remodel a small bathroom by fitting your bathroom yourself. Then all you would need is a design to work from and someone to supply the products you want. With our Supply Only service, we can help you with this.

Small Bathroom Fitting Timeframe 

How long your small bathroom takes to be installed mainly depends on the fitting company you choose to work with, and if you are deciding to fit the bathroom yourself, that depends entirely on your ability.

As an example, at The Bathroom Place, it will typically take us 5-9 days to fit a new bathroom.

Alongside the size of the bathroom, there are a lot of factors that affect the timeframe of a bathroom fitting project, such factors as:

  • The complexity level of what is being fitted
  • If your bathroom has a peculiar shape to work with
  • The extent of the job


But as we’re talking about small bathrooms in this blog, how long does it take to fit a small bathroom? A minimum of 5 days. As long as the project runs smoothly, you can expect The Bathroom Place to fit your small bathroom in 5-9 days.
