Get the Look: Cloakroom Bathroom

After the post I wrote early in the month about small bathroom ideas my friend Julie said she loved one of the ideas. She asked me if I could recommend to her how to recreate the look at an affordable price so I thoughts I would share my recommendations with you all so you could 'get the look' to!

1. Mirrored Cabinet

Pick up this fab cabinet from better bathrooms at just £65.95 you cannot go wrong. If you would prefer an illuminated mirrored cabinet then you could choose that as an alternative.

2. Taps

When I spoke with Julie she mentioned that she prefers chrome taps and to be honest for this style of bathroom I would suggest going for a chrome finish tap as they compliment the tiles and vanity unit much better. This cascade bath filler is £123.95 and it’s square features perfectly compliment the style of the basin. 

3. Basin & Vanity Unit

You have two options with the basin. You can either go for a basin that is built into the vanity unit or one which sits on top of the unit. Personally I prefer the basin that sites on the vanity unit but I have given you a few options below. They come in a variety of sizes and wood colours, if you would prefer a white unit they are also available.

 (Above) Barcelona 600 Black Vanity Unit £339.95

 (Above) Aspen 750 Wall Mounted Walnut Cabinet with Rec Basin £188.95

4. Toilet

A wall-hung toilet is a great way to save space and they also look pretty neat and tidy to. You can pick these up at a very low cost and they look very high quality. Below is the Venus Wall Hung Toilet £119.95.

5. Storage unit

In addition to the vanity unit Julie is after an additional storage unit to keep those bathroom cleaning products organised and most importantly hidden. Here are a few of my favourite. Below is the Mito 350mm Oak Slatted Unit at £211.95. The darker unit is the Mito Mid Height Walnut Slatted Unit which is at £ 306.95

6. Tiles

Tiles can completely change the feel of any bathroom and it is important to pick the right ones for the size of room you are decorating. Choosing a tile too large for a bathroom can make it feel small and cluttered. Here are a few that I feel would work best in this sized bathroom. Below is the White Travertine Tumbled Mosaic Tile and below that is the Polis Relieve Gris Tile.

I hope you have found this post useful, Julie will be looking to renovate her bathroom in the new few months so I will post some photos and let you know how it goes as I am sure she will be roping me in to do some of the painting!
