Planning a bathroom shouldn’t be hard work, believe it or not – it can be fun and Kaldewei can help with that! But limited space, awkward angles and alcoves as well as layouts – like galley bathrooms or those under the eaves – often present home owners with major challenges.
However, with Kaldewei’s enamelled bathroom solutions, you can create a dream bathroom – no matter how many odd angles you have, even if, at first glance, it looks impossible. “Can it be done? Yes, it can!”
This is the positive response you will hear from Kaldewei, the manufacturer of steel enamel showers, baths and washbasins, because they have developed innovative solutions for home owners, whose bathrooms don’t have the ideal dimensions. With Kaldewei’s smart suggestions, planning a bathroom becomes fun again.
1. Alcove bathroom: floor-level showers – miraculous space-savers
Lateral thinking helps when fitting out an alcove bathroom because it often produces surprising new approaches that can greatly improve the feel of the room. For example, alcoves offer a great opportunity to create more shelf space in the bathroom or add some special design features to a particular area of the room.
In bathrooms like this, floor-level showers are truly miraculous space-savers. Tucked into an alcove, they cleverly separate the wet area from the rest of the bathroom. In small bathrooms, this works particularly well on two levels, it highlights the beauty of the architecture as well as saving the home owners valuable space.
Floor-level showers are available in many different sizes and designs – Kaldewei offers over 100,000 choices for designing a floor-level shower area alone.
2. Bathrooms with odd angles: find the perfect-fit solution
Home owners dislike lots of angles in the bathroom – but, there’s no reason to give up. With a little creativity, rooms like these can be given a playful look. Use bright, cheerful colours – they lighten the mood and make the room look bigger. A floor- level shower like the Kaldewei Conoflat will further boost this effect.
It can also be fitted with a movable splashback that can be folded away to one side. Those who don’t want to get rid of their bath can choose a compact size that doesn’t take up much space. Kaldewei offers its showers, baths and washbasins in a standard design which brings harmony to the bathroom and upgrades it.
If there are too many angles, they can also be concealed by a false wall. The toilet or a washing machine can be cleverly hidden away behind it, while the wall itself will provide space for a washbasin such as the Cono model made of long-lasting Kaldewei steel enamel.
3. Galley bathrooms: open up the space with colour
Limited space doesn’t have to be a problem – it’s possible to design a dream bathroom even with a very long, narrow floor plan. A bath beneath the window, for example, will look great against the front wall. LED strips at the base of the bath will make it a really striking feature in a cramped bathroom.
Those who like colour will benefit from a cheerful room that also has a positive effect on the bathroom’s ambience. Light colours work particularly well in small bathrooms; another tip is to match the colour of the shower with the floor tiles. This way, the floor and shower will seem to merge together.
This makes the room seem more open, bigger and lighter. To go with the coloured shower, Kaldewei also offers many beautiful washbasins such as the delicate Miena washbasin bowl. The bathroom expert has more than 850 alternatives to the white washbasin in its portfolio – offering maximum flexibility when fitting out galley bathrooms.
4. Bathroom under the eaves: make clever use of slopes
Imagine lounging in the bath while gazing at the clouds: an attic bathroom can be fantastic. Bathroom expert Kaldewei recommends the use of an enamelled bath situated under the eaves – where there is no room for cupboards and washbasins. This allows for comfortable relaxation without losing valuable space in the bathroom.
A false wall can be used to divide the attic bathroom into distinctly separate zones, creating calm and order and offering additional scope for the washing area. As an alternative to wall-hung washbasins, a countertop washbasin such as the Kaldewei Centro model can also work well in combination with a bath.
This perfect combination, not only looks great but is also practical – thanks to the generous surround.
5. Small bathroom: Shower and bath in one
The average bathroom has an area of only around eight square metres – which means many bathrooms are even smaller. In this case, home owners need space- saving solutions such as the Kaldewei Cayono bath which enables showering and bathing in one.
By combining two functions in one product, there is more room to move about and enough space for a toilet and washbasin. A classic, functional design featuring solutions such as the Cayono bath and Puro washbasin will produce a comfortable and elegant sanctuary.
