Small Bathroom Problems & How to Fix Them

Great things come in small packages and here at Wholesale Domestic Bathrooms we can guarantee that the items you pick to maximise your petite bathroom are just that…Great!

As well as having good products, we are here to help you solve your small bathroom problems, so here goes…

Limited Floor Space

Limited floor space can be a very frustrating problem in small bathrooms, both aesthetically and functionally, often leading to the space feeling cluttered and cramped.

However, the right choice of fixtures can make the world of difference. Wall-hung furniture is a great solution for giving the appearance of more floor space. Combine a wall-hung basin and toilet to make the space feel more open, giving the illusion of a larger room. These units are also handier to clean under – win win!

Lack of Storage

One of the most common complaints about small bathrooms is the lack of storage space.

Make the most of the space you have with one of our vanity basin and toilet suite combination units. This fantastic all-in-one option gives ample storage space for all of your bathroom essentials.

 No Space for Separate Bath and Shower

Nobody wants to choose between a bath and shower. Luckily, even the smallest of bathrooms can have both!

A shower bath is a great option for smaller bathrooms. Combining the functionality of a shower with the luxury of a bath, a shower bath gives you the best of both worlds.

No Space for Basin

It can be difficult to find the right size of basin to fit in a small bathroom, and bulky basins can often make small bathrooms look even smaller.

A corner basin is a great option for making the most of your available space in a small, or awkwardly shaped, bathroom. Opt for a wall-hung corner basin, like our Crato Designer Corner Basin, to give the illusion of more space.

Another great choice for small bathrooms is a basin over toilet. A combination 2-in-1 unit combines a toilet and basin into one practical unit. The basin sits above the cistern to save on space. Super handy and super chic!

Narrow Space

If you have a long, narrow bathroom, it can be tricky to find a layout that works. However, don’t panic, there are plenty options to choose from at Wholesale Domestic Bathrooms.

Consider fixtures with short projections to help the room appear less cramped. Our Jubilee Close Coupled Toilet is a great option. With a smaller length of only 610mm, this toilet is ideal for saving space.

Slim-line vanity units are also useful in small, narrow bathrooms. Our range of Compact Furniture is made especially with small bathrooms in mind. With smaller dimensions and functional storage space, the Compact vanity units are great for maximising space.

Top Tip: If possible, place furniture against or on the same wall, to leave plenty walking space within your bathroom.

WDB Gives Back - Chris Scott Sponsorship

At Wholesale Domestic Bathrooms, we are proud to sponsor motorbike-racer enthusiast Chris Scott. We have been his number one sponsor over the past 2 years and seen him win Best Newcomer 2018 at the Melville Club.

We interviewed Chris recently to delve further into his racing life & outstanding achievements;

Name: Chris Scott

Age: 31

What current titles do you hold?

Best Newcomer 2018, Melville Club

Which circuits do you race?

I race at Knockhill, Melville & East Fortune. These circuits hold the KMSC Championship & Scottish Championship, which are highly rated races in the industry.

How many races do you take part in per season?

As part of the Scottish Championship, I have to compete in a total of 8 race days, which occur across Melville, East Fortune and Knockhill. Per race day there are 5 races to compete in.

What is your best memory of racing?

I’d say during my very first race. I was heading into the first corner with roughly 30 other bikes, and in that moment, the exhilaration had taken over. And I knew in that moment that I absolutely loved motorbike racing!

What is your worst memory of racing?

Definitely crashing out on the last race weekend of the season at East Fortune, after being clipped by another rider. I had to get my bike repaired, and this quickly made me realise how expensive motorbike racing is.

What kind of Bike do you ride?

I ride a Yamaha R6.

What does being sponsored mean to you?

To me, my Wholesale Domestic Bathrooms sponsorship has meant a great deal. Not many people are as lucky to have this kind of sponsorship so early in their racing career. Being sponsored gives me more purpose to push harder & try a little more, as I don’t want to disappoint anyone with poor results.

What has the sponsorship enabled?

It has enabled me to be a bit more confident in my racing. As well as allowing me to spend a little more money on fresh tyres, aiding in confidence that I have a bit more grip under me going round fast corners. Additionally, the sponsorship has enabled me to compete in all races during the 2018 season, which ultimately aided in the upgrade of my license from Beginner to Novice.

To move up a level in Motorbike Racing you have to acquire a certain amount of signatures, which you can only do by competing. Therefore, the more races I do, the faster I can move up the ranks.

What would you like to achieve this year?

Ultimately, I’d like to achieve better results, becoming more consistent and faster, of course. I’d also like to learn a few more tracks in England in preparation for moving onto the next stage, which will competing in races down south – fingers crossed!

Thanks Chris, Good Luck in your next race! – The Wholesale Domestic Team

Summer Stylin'

Summer has arrived! Time for BBQ’s, sunbathing and days at the seaside. But what about your home?

Your home is a reflection of you, so bring those summer vibes from the outside in.

We’ve listed out the key colours & products you should be incorporating into your home this summer. Ready to inspire, say hello to Summer Stylin’!

Magic Mango

Minimalistic bathrooms are super trendy, especially those which give off monochromatic vibes. But for summer, add those pops of mango magic! This can be easily done through interchangeable accessories such as towels and artwork.

Our fave “product of the moment” is our Walk in Black Shower Screen. Available in a range of sizes to suit even the smallest of bathroom, the black window-framed style look is giving us serious life! Tie in further black bathroom products, such as our Matte Black Flow High Rise Tap. Standing tall against a beautiful new basin, a high-rise tap offers style and simplicity.

Neo Mint

Neo Mint has slowly emerged from the shadows, overtaking popular Millennial Pink and Gen-Z Yellow as the new ‘it’ colour.

We love the fresh look of pairing Neo Mint with white tiles and wood effect furniture. Our Bordalino Oak Vanity Combination Unit is ultra-modern and ultra-stylish. This clever unit combination includes 2 large drawers, ideal for those conscious of space but needing that extra storage boost to hide bathroom bits and bobs.  

Our gloss look Serpentine Decor White tiles are the perfect textured contrast to a standard painted wall.

Mix and match textures and plains to bring your bathroom to life!

Bliss Blue

Blue is the colour we associate with summer, the infinite sky, meeting the captivating ocean. The hue strongly symbolises tranquillity and calm, and what better way to emit those feelings than with a room centred freestanding bath.

We love the idea of bathing in a beautiful big bath whilst gazing out across the ocean. And our indulgent Florence Freestanding Bath is the perfect choice for doing just that. Florence is available in a range of sizes to suit your requirements, with a double-ended design and central taps, opt for a waterfall bath mixer tap such as our Stream Waterfall for that extra touch of luxury.

Cute Coral

Bring vibrancy into your bathroom style with Coral. We love pairing Coral with textured grey herringbone tiles, and white furniture for a fresh but funky vibe. We find that coloured walls are a simple way of creating a feature within a room.

Combine our City White Gloss Wall-Hung Unit with the Mira Basin and Flow High Rise Tap. Consider doubling up on basin stations, to limit those early morning “who gets to brush their teeth first” wars.

Pops of Purple

Have you ever considered purple and grey as a colour combination? Probably not! A deeper fusion of pink and purple, almost grape in tone offers a sweet but adult look. Incorporating elements of grape into your bathroom style can be simple if you have a neutral base to work from.

At Wholesale Domestic Bathrooms our Alexander James isn’t just that neutral base you require, it’s also incredibly affordable as well as the definition of “storage solution”. The combination unit differs in size and even shape, so you can choose the perfect option for your bathroom. Pictured is our Right Hand largest option in the range.
