There are no limits to innovation! For small modern bathrooms there are plenty of compact solutions that follow the latest trends, and help you to make the most of every inch of your bathroom. Discover how to combine a Smart Toilet and an electronic operating plate with a glass finish, using minimal space, or match a superslim shower tray with a rainfall shower head. Even the smallest guest bathroom can become a charismatic space, tailor-made to your preferences, proving that limited size doesn’t mean limited style!

When you start planning the renovation of a small bathroom, there are multiple options of WCs with reduced dimensions. If you are searching for a WC packed with technology for an unbeatable experience when it comes to hygiene, the In-Wash® might be the WC for you. Incorporating functions traditionally associated with the bidet, with customisable washing and drying functions, in its wall-hung variation the In-Wash is perfect for a small bathroom. If you prefer a more traditional WC, Meridian-N Compact is available as a wall-hung WC with the most reduced depth in Roca’s catalogue. Despite it’s reduced dimensions, this compact model with in a rounded or square shape, provides a feeling of spaciousness.

Another small modern bathroom design idea to partner your WC, is an electronic operating plate with a glass finish, that allows operation through a presence sensor (you don’t have to touch it) for maximum hygiene. You can adjust the volume of each flush to save water in the bathroom, and select the coloured lighting of your choice. There are many colour options for the sensor plate itself, including the black finish of EP1 and white finish of EP2. If you prefer a flush plate without sensors, choices include the PL10, with circular buttons, available in matt white or matt black, or the PL7, with angular buttons, available in white or black with glass.

Installing thermostatic taps is another smart solution for a small bathroom, ensuring that water is delivered at the desired temperature. Thermostatic taps are not only convenient due to their temperature precision, but will also help you avoid unnecessary waste of energy – helping you to protect the planet and your wallet. Likewise, basin taps with the Cold Start opening mechanism will ensure savings too as they prevent the involuntary activation of the boiler. With both options available in Titanium Black, the modern Insignia taps are available with a side lever, perfect for small basins like Beyond. In the shower, you can match black taps with a black Rainsense shower head, available in smaller models in a round or square shape. These showerheads guarantee a refreshing shower experience, thanks to the pleasure of the rain effect – even if you don’t have a very large space!

Finally, if during the decoration of your small bathroom you find trying to fit a shower area in to a limited floor space, you’ll be interested to know that Roca offer a range of shower trays in varying  dimensions. Terran square shower trays start at 800 x 800mm and are made in the material STONEX®, which has a textured finish making them highly slip resistant and beautiful too!
