5 Key Rules for an Ideal Bathroom Layout
To create an ideal bathroom layout, it’s important that you assess every square inch of space, as well as the different elements that make up this room. Here are 5 simple rules to follow.
1. Consider the amount of space you have
Because not all bathrooms are alike, it's important to consider the space you have available. The amount and size of the furniture will depend on whether you have a small or large bathroom. Keep a minimum distance between each piece of furniture so that it’s easy to move around. To make the most of a small bathroom, use hanging furniture as much as possible and place shelves on the walls.
2. Choose between a shower or a bathtub
While a shower has the advantage of consuming about three times less water than a bath, a bath is much more practical if you have young children. Make your choice based on your personal tastes, your lifestyle and the size of your bathroom.
3. Adapt your storage
Storage space is an important element in any bathroom. If your room is large, choose a double vanity with shelves and drawers. In a more narrow space, choose furniture that can store your essential accessories.
4. Use a towel warmer
A towel warmer has become an essential feature of modern bathrooms. Some models also act as a radiator while drying or warming your towels. If you already have a heating system in your bathroom, choose a model that does not have a fan.
5. Play with lighting options
Use a ceiling fixture or hanging lights for your main source of lighting and complement this with other light sources. As for the mirror, choose one that has integrated lights or illuminate it with a direct light source such as pot lights or wall sconces.
