Guest Bathrooms – From a Small Floor Plan to a Feel-Good Space
Guest bathrooms are practically indispensable, especially for larger households. Even if you don't have guests over often, you won't want to do without a guest bathroom. However, finding the right fixtures often proves difficult. There only seems to be a few options at first glance because of the often small floor plan of many guest bathrooms. A toilet and a sink are often the only fixtures in many guest bathrooms. Smart, space-saving products present a solution here. Even though you have to focus mostly on the basic elements, with a bit of creativity you can create a true feel-good room instead of just a bare-bones guest bathroom.
Space-Saving Solutions for Guest Bathrooms
The correct use of the available space is the most important factor in good guest bathroom design. Duravit makes spacious and inviting design solutions possible - even in small bathrooms - with our large variety of flexible and perfectly designed product ideas. Depending on your budget and personal preferences, even a mini guest bathroom can become a modern bathroom with an inviting atmosphere.
Design Sinks for Every Situation in the Guest Bathroom
The large variety of options for sinks range from a simple handwashing sink in your guest bathroom to sinks with a vanity to countertop sinks with matching furniture consoles in various designs and sizes.
Guest bathrooms with built-in sinks
Built-in sinks offer a space-saving solution for guest bathrooms. They are installed from above into a single countertop or into a vanity unit, creating storage space for bathroom items around or beneath the sink. Alternatively, there are also guest bathroom sinks that are installed from below so that only the sink itself is visible. With this type of installation, the sink in your guest bathroom melds into the vanity unit and is also particularly easy to clean. Yet another alternative is a semi-recessed sink, which is built halfway into a console or vanity unit in your guest bathroom.
Small countertop sinks for your guest bathrooms can be installed either on washstand countertops made of a wide variety of materials, such as wood, glass or natural stone, or on matching consoles or vanities. Hand-rinse sinks and vanity units for the guest bathroom are often offered as a set. Like Duravit built-in sinks, these are sanded flat in an extra work step so that they sit exactly flush with the surface of the vanity. There are hardly any limits to their design: In addition to asymmetrical, round and square guest bathroom countertop sinks, you will also find other models in various shapes and sizes here.
Our vanity units are specially designed to fit furniture washbasins. This allows your guest bathroom sink and vanity unit to become a harmonious whole. The combinations of furniture washbasins with a matching vanity unit have plenty of storage space for all kinds of bathroom items right on the edge of the sink and they also provide a lot of storage space underneath. Cosmetics, toothbrushes and the like are always within reach. The convenient design of our furniture washbasins will make a big impression with their practical functionality.
What to Pay Attention to in Your Guest Bathroom
Make your guests comfortable with convenient bathroom accessories such as soap dispensers and towel holders in the guest bathroom.
Small guest bathrooms will appear larger if you choose light colors and large surfaces or tile formats. On the other hand, dark colors will give the room depth.
Combine your favorite individual items in your guest bathroom. Many Duravit ceramics and bathroom furniture series can go together perfectly and offer plenty of storage space, even when space is limited.
To save time and spare your nerves when cleaning, choose robust and easy-to-clean surfaces such as HygieneGlaze or WonderGliss for ceramics or furniture finished with lacquer that doesn't show fingerprints.
Duravit bathroom furniture can be used in wet rooms, so it is also ideal for a guest bathroom with a shower.
Narrower Furnishings Mean More Space in the Guest Bathroom
If your guest bathroom is particularly narrow, a toilet that doesn't extend as far out into the room can solve the issue. At Duravit, we call this space-saving design for guest bathrooms with a small floorplan a "compact toilet." All of these models are wall-mounted toilets, which on the outside hardly differ from a standard toilet, but they don't extend as far out into room, saving you precious space.
Guest bathrooms can be given a homey touch using bathroom furniture such as bathroom cabinets, racks or bathroom shelves, which come in different sizes and styles. These can be flexibly arranged in even the smallest of spaces. Especially in rooms with smaller floor plans, Duravit's creative guest bathroom ideas often provide the ideal solution for creating storage space or shelving. With our large selection of different guest bathroom ideas with wood decors and lacquered surfaces, every bathroom furnishing has its own unique character, tailored to the preferences of the designer. Matching bathroom mirrors, make-up mirrors and mirror cabinets for the guest bathroom, with or without LED lighting, will put the perfect finishing touch on the room.
Whether it's guest bathroom cabinets, consoles, sinks with a vanity, cabinets on casters, guest bathroom mirrors or intelligent drawer dividers: Duravit has a wide variety of guest bathroom furniture sets. The extensive Duravit range offers the right product for every style of furnishing and to fit every taste. This helps you make even the smallest guest bathroom feel inviting.
