Bathroom Designs Ideas
Today, the bathroom is more than just a small utilitarian space. The bathrooms have not only grown bigger but also more numerous. They have also became a place where we want to spend and enjoy our free time. With an incredible variety of surfaces, finishes and fixtures to choose from we are able to create a one of a kind, sanctuary to fit both our needs and desires.
Designing a small bathroom can be challenging but not impossible. With the right design approach even the smallest bathroom can be functional and look fabulous.
When designing a small bathroom, we have to keep in mind that the size of the space, to some extent, will dictate the options and layout of the bathroom.
Before the works begin, check if there is a possibility to increase the size of the space, even a few inches stolen from another area will make a difference by improving the bathroom’s layout.
If the bathroom has a window, consider blocking it to gain more wall space. Let’s not forget about the storage. Especially in a tight space, storage needs to be considered at the beginning to avoid cluttering the space later.
To make the small space feel even more open and spacious consider wall mounted vanity, sink and toilet. To further open up the space, install clear sliding shower doors or clear panels as they save more space then doors.
Don’t forget about the lighting. Insufficient amount of lighting fixtures will make the space look smaller than it actually is. Also, consider incorporating glass and metal finishes in to your design as these surfaces will help distribute the light around the room.
In a small bathroom keep the design clean and simple and avoid unnecessary visual breaks.
By nature family bathroom is shared by all members of the family and in the older houses it is usually the only bathroom in the house. Adding an additional bathroom can be costly so overhauling the current one can be a better choice.
In this kind of bathroom, it is wise to play with the layout. By repositioning of the fixtures you can create a functional and convenient space for everyone. Since the family bathroom is to be shared, we can’t forget about the various needs and safety of each of our household members.
Keep the design clean and simple and make sure there is enough storage to take care of everyone’s needs.
To make the space more practical, if possible, consider double sink vanity, separate tub area and free standing shower, as these will help ease the congestion during the critical times of the day.
Large bathrooms are easier to design due to their of course – size. The design can be more complex and rich. In the large bathrooms thinking about the layout is as much as important as in any other space in the house.
When designing the bathroom, think about the room as a whole to ensure the design flows nicely around the whole space instead of single areas.
Having more space doesn’t mean we should overcrowd the space with fixtures and fittings. However by adding unique pieces to the mix we have an opportunity to “display” our fixtures in more prominent way.
Double vanities with vessel sinks will create a luxurious, spa like feel, relieving traffic especially during rush morning hours. Adding free standing furniture such as armoire or a chest of drawers can serve as an additional storage while adding some character to the room.
In the large bathroom floor area is a key. Choosing appropriate combination of materials – sensitive lighting, good quality surfaces and finishes – for all areas is crucial to create the place where you enjoy spending time.
