Bathroom Designing Tips to Keep In Mind
To have a good bathroom, it is important to consider some things in decorating and designing it. It is also vital to choose the right accessories, furniture and fixtures to make sure that you will have what you need in the room.
But if you really want to have that elegant looking bathroom that will give you more than just comfort, below are some tips to help you design your own bathroom.
Determine the primary user.
Always plan according to the needs of the primary user. This is important so you will know what kind of materials and features you need.
A bathroom for children and adult would have different needs and you would use different features, too.
For a child’s bathroom, use non-skid surfaces and rounded edge to avoid injury. You can also place anti-slip mats.
You can have adaptations for disabled persons by having grab rails to walls and close to the toilet.
Consider a wall-hung sink so that people who use wheelchairs can move closer to it with ease.
Have sufficient space.
Sufficiency of space is important in order to allow comfort inside the bathroom. It wouldn’t be nice to enter a bathroom where you could hardly stand nor move.
Allow space for sitting, standing, getting in and out of the bathtub or shower and enough traffic for moving around.
You can use glass shelving for keeping your cosmetics and toiletries. A good color scheme will help you enhance a small bathroom.
You can also use curves in a linear room for it adds interest. Use mirrors, windows and glass strategically for it creates a sense of openness allowing light to bounce throughout your entire bathroom.
Use false ceilings.
Some small bathrooms and washrooms have very high ceilings which give the feeling of being boxed in.
To avoid that, use slatted false ceilings with the right lighting. This can greatly help to enhance your bathroom.
Use good decoration of your ceiling in order to make a better ambience inside the room.
Have smart storage spaces.
If you don’t want to see clutter in your bathroom, have good storage spaces. You need to have storage areas for cleaning materials, medicines, children’s toys for the bathroom, toiletries and others.
Choose a good bathroom vanity cabinet that will not only keep your toiletries but will also make your bathroom look good.
You can have a cabinet that can occupy from floor to ceiling for a wider space.
Consider good ventilation.
Windows can allow entry of natural light and air. But if you think your bathroom doesn’t have enough ventilation, you can consider using an extractor fan.
You need to choose the right size for the fan and you can do this by getting the volume of your room. Your room volume will be multiplied by the number of air changes needed in an hour which is 20 for the bathroom.
Then you purchase a fan that is appropriate for your bathroom that could provide the needed flow rate of air.
Choose your color.
White is timeless for bathrooms. It looks very clean, fresh and would fit any style.
Some use pastel colors and others use dark colors. Whatever color you use, just be sure that it complements each other and it will create a clean and inviting feel.
The most important thing is cleanliness which is the reason why white is prominent as a color. You actually stick to white and just use some other colors to accent it.
Use right flooring.
Use ceramic tiles for your flooring. It can create a tidy environment and it is easy to maintain.
You can use part or full tiles. Use a different tile size for your wall and flooring.
Since that are different sizes and designs of tiles, you can choose which one will fit your design. You can even choose a tile grout with a different color.
Choose your accessories.
You also have to choose the right accessories. Do not use too much of it for it might make the room look too crowded.
You also have to consider the design and style you want for your interior. You can have a soap dish, a tissue paper holder, a medicine cabinet, a toothbrush holder, a towel rail, and others.
You can even put decorative jars, lights, plants, flowers, stones and others.
Choose your furniture.
To minimize space, you can use corner sinks, corner showers or corner baths. Choose the right size and style of sink.
You may opt for a vanity unit, a pedestal a wall hung or an en-suite. Some bathrooms have a couch inside.
You can actually use your creativity and choose the furniture to use that would suit your style. You can even use an antique dresser as your bathroom vanity.
Choose the right size and shape for your bathtub and showers. Some even have saunas, whirlpool baths and spas.
Make a unique look by customizing your bathroom. Also, consider concrete or limestone as a surfacing material for a cool and clean look.
Choose your fixtures.
Your fixtures greatly affect the look of your entire space. If we speak of lighting fixtures, you can use chrome lights which are commonly used in bathrooms.
You may also choose for a mirror light that comes in different shapes and sizes. You can get different types of fixtures but you have to keep in mind four important things, the theme, the size, the comfort and the durability of the items.
Choosing the right fixtures will increase the feel and appearance of your bathroom.
