Are you planning a bathroom renovation? Although you may think a smaller bathroom means a cheaper renovation than a large bathroom, you’ll be surprised to see there really isn’t that great of a difference.
According to Houzz.com.au’s 2015 Report, small bathrooms (smaller than 5 square metres) on average cost $3,100 for minor renovations and $10,600 for major renovations, whereas on the other hand, a large bathroom (larger than 5 square metres) cost $4,100 for minor renovations and $15,000 for major renovations. Given that the costs are still substantial, it is important that you make the most of the space you have. One area where you can save a lot of space is your choice of bathroom basin.
At Ross’s Discount Home Centre, I help customers find products for all sorts of matters, including limited bathroom space. As a result, I’ve learnt more than a few tips on which basins work best in small bathrooms, and today, I’d like to share these with you.

Bathroom basins are best suited for small spaces
In my experience, the above counter basins we stock best suit customers with small bathrooms. Also known as vessel basins, above-counter basins sit entirely above benchtops and work great with narrow or small vanities.
These bathroom basins are available in various sizes and shapes and can be manufactured from different materials, such as glass or stone. Above-counter basins can be stylish to look at, and they can be the centrepiece or highlight of a small bathroom. They are incredibly cost-effective, which customers always love to hear. To install such a basin, all you need is an appropriate cut-out in your benchtop, and you have an elegant basin that takes up little storage space.
Pedestal and wall basins are also great space-saving solutions for customers with small bathrooms. These basins can be fixed directly onto the wall, and they offer a minimalistic look to a bathroom. If you opt for these bathroom basins, you can enhance their look by adding pedestals or shrouds. Not only do these attachments add style to your bathroom, but they can also help conceal your plumbing.
Wall-mounted basin mixers are another popular bathroom basin for customers with limited space. These bathroom basins are mounted on the wall and can help reduce benchtop depths by up to 10mm. Moreover, they are easy to clean, and they look elegant as well.
Did you know you can also create the illusion of space in your bathroom by exposing more of the floor area? You can do this by choosing wall-hung vanities as your bathroom basin. When installing a wall-hung vanity, make sure that you leave some space underneath and on the sides so that you can clean the unit properly.
Now that you have an idea of what type of basins are best suited for small bathrooms, you should have no trouble finding one suitable for your bathroom, starting with the selection below:
