How To Make The Most Out Of A Cloakroom

Chances are your cloakroom is the smallest room in your home, but that doesn't mean it takes any less planning. In a room where space is limited you will need to think carefully about sanitryware, storage, light and heat. Check out our top tips below to see how to make the most out of your cloakroom.

Under the stairs

Utilising unused space under your staircase is the perfect way to make room for a small cloakroom in your home. It is important to make sure you have enough head room and space to move around once you have added your sanitryware and furniture. These spaces can usually allow for a wc, a small washbasin and sometimes even some storage. A great addition to your home especially if you have guests over a lot.

Location is key

To make installation as easy and as cheap as possible it is best to locate your cloakroom next to existing plumbing if possible for example close to the kitchen or upstairs bathroom. Not only will this improve the installation experience but it will also reduce the cost of the installation.

Space savers

When creating a cloakroom space is usually limited so space saving products are vital. There are many small basins and short projection wc pans available now to help with space maximisation. Wall hung furniture is also a major space saver and allows for easy cleaning underneath.

Let there be light

Cloakrooms normally suffer from lack of light due to there being no natural light in the room. Make sure to include an illuminated mirror in your plans for extra light to make the room feel more welcoming.

Heat it up
