Where can you put another shower room?

You probably don’t need as much space as you think you do when planning a new bathroom. Obviously, the space needed is also dictated by your plans; however, a standard shower room simply requires suitable electrical outlets, ventilation and sound insulation. Here are our top tips if you’re on the hunt for the perfect space to add a bathroom.

Cupboards/Coatrooms: Many homes have storage cupboards or coatrooms that end up being spaces to store junk. If you’re guilty of this, you could easily change this space to a new bathroom with very few adjustments.

Hallway: If you’re lucky enough to have a long hallway, you could potentially earmark part of this as a new bathroom, especially if your hallway ends with a window with no rooms on either side. This is one of the most popular locations for additional shower rooms due to the ease of installation.

Bedrooms: A large master bedroom can easily be changed into a suite with the addition of a shower room. Modern homes with an existing en-suite can also be extended for a more comfortable shower experience.


How to design a new shower room

Planning is key when it comes to adding a new room to your home, and this is incredibly true for a bathroom or shower room. It’s essential to think strategically in order to keep both construction time and costs as low as possible.

Here’s what our experts have to say.

     Place new fixtures close to existing water and waste lines if possible; this is a great way to save time and money.

     Ensure that your floor can handle the weight of a new bath or shower room. Some bathroom fixtures are heavy, so it’s important that you know the capacity of your floor joists.

     Maximise the space in your room by choosing a sliding door or a door that opens inwards. This will also make the room more accessible to guests.

     Opt for products that combine convenience with innovative design, a wet room kit is a great option for those looking to create a modern shower space.

     Your space must have some form of ventilation, a window is an ideal option for a new shower room. If you can’t find space with a window, you will need a duct fan.
