A small space is no barrier to a swoon-worthy bathroom.Making it easier to create a dream bathroom in a bijou space, BC Designs popular Boat bath and its Copper boat bath collection is now available in 1580mm and 1500mm respectively.
Around the same footprint as a typical shower, the baths will fit into most spaces and create a focal point with maximum impact.
Opting for a smaller sized bath can make a space feel larger, as it won't overpower the space, and the dimensions will be in proportion with the rest of the room, according toBarrie Cutchie, Design Director at BC Designs. 'Having limited space shouldn't have to impact on your creative flair. A lot of people are under the impression that they might have to forgo a freestanding bath but that really isn't the case anymore.'
Smaller versions of design classics allow the luxury of a freestanding model without it dominating the bathroom.

For those wth more contemporary tastes, BC Designs has also launched Projekt; a collection of three clean-lined solid surface baths with just a 1510mm footprint.
The three models; Projekt Esseta, Divita and Sorpressa can be bought in eight colourways in an assortment of jewel shades, earthy tones and pastel hues including gunmetal, khaki green, mushroom, powder blue, light fawn, industrial grey, satin rose and powder grey, as well as matt or polished white.
Barrie adds, 'Colour in bathrooms is a huge trend right now, and we expect it to develop further over the coming months. It's not just confined to huge bathrooms; with clever planning it can work as well in smaller rooms. Clever tiling and where you position your brassware can give the illusion of space.'
