How to design small bathroom renovation?

Hi Team, 


We recently purchased our first home and have decided to renovate our small ensuite. I was wondering if someone could help me sketch out the design that I have if possible or point me in the right direction. 


This is the current bathroom layout and rough measurements. 


L - 1900

W - 1850

H - 2600

This is what I would like to get sketched up. I've attached some inspiration photos for reference. 


1 - Install barn door to allow for space inside ensuite.

3 - Install shower niche on the shower southern wall. 

4 - Install Walk in shower panel

Re: How to design small bathroom renovation?

Hello @nikitacorry 


Welcome to the Bunnings workshop community. It's fabulous to have you join us, and thank you for sharing your question about your bathroom renovation.


To start off with, I recommend having a look at this guide - How to plan a bathroom renovation by @Adam_W. This will give you ideas of what to take into consideration when planning your bathroom renovation.


It's great that you've got an idea of what you want to put into your bathroom renovation. However, due to size constraints I'm afraid I can only fit in either the towel rail or wooden shelves but not both. You could force the issue and place the timber shelves above the toilet, but it would be exposed to the overspray of the shower. This will damage the shelves and whatever item you put on there.


The good news is that everything else in your list should be able to fit in your bathroom. I've placed a list below of the bathroom appliances I've used for your renovation.


I also suggest visiting your local store and speaking to our In-Store Kitchen Specialist for a quote and a site visit.
