Tips on how to design a cloakroom suite

Traditionally a cloakroom suite is a small downstairs room, comprising only of a toilet and wash basin. These days, however, many people are being more imaginative when designing a cloakroom. This is mainly due to the popularity of furniture in cloakroom sets.

Vanity units with built in basins are a great option for small cloakrooms because of the number of different sizes they are available in. Also, back-to-wall toilet units are a more modern choice for the contemporary bathroom, and the same applies with cloakrooms.

Cloakroom basins offer a great space-saving solution. Choosing a cloakroom corner basin will free up a lot of space and give the room a stylish minimalist look. Wall-hung cloakroom sinks are another good choice for keeping a minimal design and saving on space.

Cloakroom toilets are available in a number of slimline and inconspicuous designs. Choose either a small back-to-wall toilet or a wall-hung toilet to create a compact cloakroom suite.

Choosing the right cloakroom basin

When shopping for a new cloakroom basin the first thing to consider is the space in the cloakroom. If you are limited for room you may want to consider a corner basin, as this will free up a great deal of floor space, especially if you opt for a wall-hung corner cloakroom basin.

Cloakroom basins without a pedestal are becoming the most popular option these days for modern cloakroom designs . A wall-mounted basin, of course, can be adjusted to hang where you please, whereas with a cloakroom pedestal you are limited with where you can arrange it.

Corner cloakroom sinks are often in a set with a matching corner toilet, another great space-saving solution which pushes the cloakroom sanitary area to one side of the room. Choosing a cloakroom basin is usually about utilizing the space you have with a design and look which appeals to you.

Also consider choosing cloakroom taps which will match the design of your new basin. If modern, how about a wall-mounted basin filler? If going for a more traditional look choose Victorian or Georgian style faucets.
