Do you dream of having a large bathroom? A space where you can relax and unwind with every feature you could hope for? For most of us, this dream is more of a pipedream. Medium-density housing is becoming more common in Adelaide and across the nation, which means your bathroom is probably cosy at best.

Never fear. While Adelaide Shower Screens can’t do much about the size of your bathroom, we can help you make the most with what you’ve got. Here are our top tips for glass shower screen ideas for small bathrooms.

6 ideas for shower screens for small bathrooms

  1. Embrace the illusion of spaciousness with frameless glass shower screens. Their minimalist design creates a seamless transition between the shower and the rest of the bathroom, making it visually expansive. The absence of frames also allows more natural light to permeate the space, further enhancing the open feel.

  2. Choose sliding glass doors to optimise functionality in tight quarters. Sliding doors eliminate the need for clearance space required by traditional hinged doors, making them an ideal choice for small bathrooms.
  3. Maximise the use of corners with a custom-built glass shower enclosure. Corner enclosures can be very efficient in small bathrooms, utilising space that may otherwise go unused.
  4. If your bathroom is a little less poky and you have space, consider a walk-in shower. In case you didn’t know, a walk-in shower is usually one fixed glass shower screen to prevent water from escaping with a gap for you to enter an exit. Like frameless glass showers, they provide the illusion of space and increase natural light.
  5. Always choose glass shower screens. If your bathroom is small, the last thing you want to do is make it seem smaller by using a shower curtain or other alternatives. Glass is best because it doesn’t add a visual barrier while making any bathroom appear larger.

Other ideas for small bathrooms

The world doesn’t revolve around glass shower screens. At least that’s what some people think – not us of course! So here are some other ideas for small bathrooms:

  1. Choose a light colour palette for walls, tiles, and accessories. Light colours, particularly whites and neutrals, reflect light and create a bright, airy atmosphere, visually expanding the space.

  2. Install a large mirror to amplify the sense of space. Mirrors reflect light and give the impression of a larger area.
  3. Choose a wall-mounted or floating vanity to create the illusion of more floor space.
    The openness beneath the vanity allows for a clear line of sight, making the room feel less cramped.
  4. Illuminate the bathroom with strategically placed lighting. Well-distributed and bright lighting reduces shadows, enhancing the overall perception of space.
  5. Use vertical lines in the design, such as vertical stripes on walls or tall, vertical cabinets. These lines draw the eye upward, giving the impression of higher ceilings and more room.
  6. Consider multi-functional furniture that serves dual purposes. For instance, a mirrored cabinet not only provides storage but also reflects light, contributing to a sense of spaciousness.
  7. Replace closed cabinets with open shelving. Open shelves create a more open and airier feel, allowing for easy access to essentials without the bulk of closed storage.
