Whether you want to build a fresh bathroom from scratch or remodel one, here are some tips to help you do so aesthetically with maximum amount of practical applicability and visual grandeur. For starters we must plan each and every element of the bathroom to see how each of them interact with the other elements. A bathroom should be free of clutter and as minimal as possible. Use of large tiles on the floor and use of the lighter shades of colour help create a feeling of space, unlike darker shades of colours which make the bathroom look crowded. These are some simple basics of how to create a perfect bathroom.
Here are some design tips for a better bathroom:
Installation of a corner sink – A pedestal sink is not very convenient in a bathroom and restricts movement in small bathrooms. Placing a corner sink helps create more space and removes the restrictions caused by sinks placed in corners.
Use of shower curtains over glass doors – Instead of using glass doors that take up a lot of space and require a lot of effort and time to set up, using shower curtains saves space and it’s easier to move around in the bathroom. Having shower-tub combos is a good idea and they can fit into bathrooms which are not the biggest.
Mounting a vanity in the bathroom – Vanities help the bathroom look bigger and mounting on above the floor de-clutters the space in the bathroom to accommodate small items. It is advisable to have a rounded vanity installed as tone with sharp edges tend to hurt the body while moving around.
Having an extended counter over the toilet – A simple wood or marble slab can be placed to form a counter for keeping important items, it looks clean and chic and not enough effort is needed to install one.
Use of larger tiles/patterns – Use of large patterns of tiles trick the eye into seeing more space than actually exists. Obviously it won’t make the bathroom bigger but it will definitely make it look bigger.
Use of mirrors – Using mirrors helps create an effect to the eye which perceives the place to be larger than it actually is, and having a large mirror stretch across the wall definitely helps.
Mounting the towel bar on the door – Having a towel bar on the door keeps the towels handy after a shower and saves space at the same time.
Installation of trough sinks – Use of trough sinks is a good solution to save space, they do not take up much space and keep the floor free to allow more movement.
Use of wall mounted faucets- Using mounted faucets on the wall allow for narrower sinks or vanities to be installed, which frees up foot space for the bathroom. These look good anywhere in the bathroom so not much thought has to be put in.
These are just some bathroom plan ideas to help you get going to build your bathroom and create the maximum out of the available space.
