Transforming a Small Family Cloakroom
How much love does your under-stairs cloakroom get?
As an often neglected room when it comes to design, it’s high time the cloakroom got a little love. There’s no denying that small spaces have to work harder, but this was all part of the appeal for the recent undertaking by Ocean Bathrooms.
Designing the space for a busy young family with two children under five years old, proving that a cloakroom can be as luxurious as it is practical was so important in this brief. With little ones running around, often the only time you can steal for yourself is when nipping to the toilet, so why not make that experience as restorative as possible? If those few minutes feel like you’ve entered a hotel then so much the better for maintaining equilibrium in the home.
And what a transformation.
Contrary to the old adage that white walls make a space seem larger, the team opted for a bold wallpaper and dark hues taken all the way onto the ceiling, both from Graham Brown, to give the appearance of depth and add a touch of opulent theatre to the space. The large circular mirror from origins living adds to the sense of space, as do the marble tiles from Domus, their shine cleverly bouncing light around the room.
The choice of Alape basin and Duravit toilet, both wall-hung, would be stunning in any sized bathroom, but especially here give the perception of more space by leaving the floor clear below. And it’s the modern, elegant lines of the Geberit button, wall mounted Dornbracht taps and accessories, and the Aqualla radiator that come together to simplify and elevate the space.
The transformation would be equally fitting for a small B&B or boutique hotel, narrow boat or tiny home – anywhere that needs a small space to earn its keep and deliver on function and form.
