In ancient times, bathrooms and bathhouses were considered areas of luxury. People flocked to these areas to flout their social as well as financial clout. As times changed and more modern innovations came forward to reduce bath time as one of necessity, bathrooms started to be overlooked in terms of design but we at SURFACES REPORTER (SR) are all set to bring classy back to your bathrooms!
Even if you have limited space with your bathroom, there are a few things that you can do to make it as good as a larger bathroom. Utilization of space in the correct way, a bit of innovation, and an eye for aesthetics - all of these go a long way in changing the way you look at your bathroom. Read on to find a few helpful tips for designing your bathroom and personalizing it according to your style.
Wall Mounted Toilets:
Wall-mounted toilets add a special advantage - they are important for increasing both floor space and legroom. This adds a unique, modern look to your bathroom. You can also add a shelf behind the toilet, which will add a counter for putting up your toiletries. If you lack the space for adding a shelf, a vanity top would work just as well.
In all modern estates, shower benches are becoming a common sight for the bathrooms. A sleek and modern shower bench that is enclosed by glass panelling works wonders. Consider adding a shower bench to this, as it will add both form and factor to the additional room available in the shower space.
If you are someone who wants to add their personality and style to the bathroom, monochrome materials are a long way to go. You can find unique materials that have a certain shade and tone, and use these materials to encapsulate all that you'd want in a bathroom. For example, consider going a bit rustic with stone surfaces and greyscale furnishings for the bath.
This is a great design idea for smaller bathrooms. Wall-to-wall mirrors work wonders when it comes to creating the illusion of a bigger space. They also reflect a lot of natural lighting, thereby making the bathroom space look better. An airy vibe is what you can hope for in this situation, especially if you go for a more natural look with your bath furnishings.
We all know that the usual bathroom design tends to have a curb around the shower. Eliminating this curb can lead to continual flooring, which leads right up to the shower wall. You can add a different drainage system, such as a concealed one, to manage the water. This gives the entire bathroom a very seamless, clean, polished, and suave look. It's an absolute must for contemporary estate bathroom designs.
Pocket doors are an ingenious design that helps you save a serious amount of space. In the typical bathroom designs, a door that opens towards the inside of the bathroom uses a lot of space. By making a hole in the wall of the bathroom and installing a pocket door, you can reduce the space used by 9 square feet. This gives you more space to utilize the way you want to.
Playing with contrasts is a great way to change the look and feel of your bathroom. You can use complementary colours to create a diverse range of styles. For example, if you have faux wood flooring and tone at the bottom, you can find tiles for the walls which complement this tone nicely. Make sure to choose the correct lighting too.
Accent walls are great for adding a dash of colour to an otherwise dull and drub bathroom. If your bathroom is almost devoid of colours, adding an accent wall around the sink, shower, or toilet will add a lot of personality to the bathroom. Not only will it spice things up, but also add a bit of depth to the bathroom.
Discard the frames:
Frames around the shower, in a modern estate bathroom, do not fit the bill. If you have shower curtains with frames, you need to swap with a frameless glass sliding panel. This will add a lot of character to your bathroom, as well as visual appeal. Unlike shower curtains, these do not block one-third of the bathroom's view.
Has your bathroom or toilet area been looking drab recently? Do you want to spice it up, and go a bit crazy on the design? It does not get any crazier than a gallery wall in your bathroom. Add portraits by famous painters and utilize the vertical space available at your disposal. You can add artworks by your favourite artists to personalize the space even further.
The utility of bathrooms took to the forefront for quite a while- design and features took a backseat. It is only of late that beautifully designed bathrooms, with an equal emphasis on both features and functionality, have made a comeback and we hope you are ready to make some grand changes with these amazing tips. Are you prepared?
