We have recently wrote about bathroom lightning – today there’s a good time to take a look at planning bathroom’s interior to make sure that everything will be functioning properly. Let’s begin from necessary distances between bathroom facilities and then we go further:
- Bidet should be allocated an area of dimensions at least 70×100 cm and the toilet – 80 x 85 cm. In front of the bath should be at least 70 x 100 cm free space, but in front of the sink – 65 x 100 cm. Of course that free space can be less, but you should then be aware of potential discomfort while using this facilities.
- Think about replacing classic finned heater with modern tubular one. This allows you to use it not only for heating a bathroom, but also as a dryer for towels.
- Wood in the bathroom certainly can give warm and comfortable feeling – but do you know, that most wood types do not like any kind of humidity? Choose it wise.
- Is your bathroom too small? A large mirror on the wall and a bright light is a proven way to bring the impression of more space.
- Do not use more than three colors for bathroom interior. Try to keep it minimal, clean and light. You’ll not regret it.
- To get more space, replace bathtub with shower cabin, remove large cabinets and use wide shelves instead. Your bathroom wil gain lot of space, practically and optically.
- To put some natural light into your bathroom consider replacing solid, concrete wall between the bathroom and other room (or kitchen) with opaque tiles of glass. This move can change your bathroom in very radical way giving it new, modern and fresh look.
- Are you brave enough to make something completely different with your small bathroom? Remove everything except sink and try to fit into free space largest bathtub you can find. Then you will have very comfortable bathtub for relaxing baths, sink for everyday use and almost no cleaning needs. Sounds weird? It is weird but sometimes worth a try.
