Downstairs Toilet Ideas for 2022

Are you looking for modern downstairs toilet ideas? Perhaps you’re installing a new bathroom or looking to renovate your existing cloakroom toilet? Well – you’ve come to the right place! 

Let’s take a look at some of the most popular downstairs toilet ideas in 2022, along with some handy hints and tips from our experts here at Boro Bathrooms.  

Popular Downstairs Toilet Ideas for 2022 

Let’s take a look at some of the top ways to install, or even simply to spruce up, your downstairs toilet. To begin: 

Multi-Coloured Walls …or Multi-Coloured Floors, for That Matter 

Such a small room is a great place to experiment with colours – and big, bold designs are in for 2022 downstairs toilet ideas. Don’t be afraid to experiment with your paint, wall or floor tiles – a mosaic design is a particularly popular choice

For more muted bathroom tile ideas, opt for solid colours, like blue walls, but then play with the textures and shades of blue instead. You can check out our range of high-quality tiles here or see them for yourself at one of our bathroom showrooms. 

Calm Neutrals with a Pop of Colour 

If you are looking for more modern bathroom ideas, keep your colour palette more muted overall – perhaps grey, beige, brown, pale blue, or black floors, grey cabinets, and a white toilet and sink – and stick to smooth ceramic or porcelain flooring. Then, choose one wall to be your feature wall, adding a pop of colour. 

You can also use this feature colour in your decorative elements – for example, green walls can be complemented with green towels. 

How to Make Use of a Small Space for a Downstairs Toilet

Even the smallest of bathrooms can be functional and beautiful. Here are some of our top tips and downstairs toilet ideas for making the most of your small space. 

  • Take advantage of your wall space – if you can’t go out, go up
  • Get rid of unnecessary cabinets to create more space
  • Instead of a bulky sink with flat-panel cabinets, opt for a wall-mounted sink
  • Take advantage of those unused nooks and crannies 
  • Consider corner sinks, as they will take up less floor space

How Much Should Your New Downstairs Toilet Cost?

The traditional downstairs toilet is, of course, smaller than the average bathroom, which will make it a fair bit cheaper. 

Based in the downstairs cloakroom, this will limit your floor space, and thus the amount of bathroom furniture you can fit in. Often consisting of simply a one-piece toilet, basin, and a window for some natural lighting, there will be fewer expenses on this front too. 

The fact that a downstairs loo is on the ground floor will also keep costs down, as it will take less work to fit the necessary plumbing and electricity, and your bathroom fitters won’t need to haul bulky items up the stairs. 

However, it is worth noting that all downstairs toilets and bathroom spaces are different – your design choices will massively affect the overall price, as will your choice of bathroom tiles.
