Adequate lighting is another element that really makes or breaks the bathroom’’s functionality as well as safety. The best bathroom layouts include a blend of four types of light: task, ambient, accent, and decorative. Lighting should happen from the ceiling, from the walls, in the bathing zone, and wherever else improves the use and safety of the space. While powder rooms provide an excellent clean slate to really make a statement and a splash, design-wise, in your home, most bathrooms will be best received when they make sense with the design of the rest of your home. Colors don’t need to necessarily match, but they should flow to make the bathroom layout an appropriate part of the bigger whole. Hardware, such as the bathroom doorknobs, and other features, such as the doorframe and/or bathroom door color facing the rest of the house, should be consistent with whatever is in the style of the home elsewhere.
These molten blobs look as though they were captured mid-movement and attached to the wall. The sconces are by SKLO, a lighting company from the Czech Republic. Crafted from mouth-blown glass, each one is slightly different, adding to the artisan appeal. These fixtures are ideal for adding ambient light in the bathroom. Who needs a nightlight when you can use beautiful, stylish sconces to add a soft glow to the bathroom? This is the company‘s Twin Sconce, new for 2018, that was launched at ICFF in New York. For real drama in the bathroom, how about choosing a lighted glass vanity? This glass countertop has depth and interior texture, in addition to a cool blue light. While it certainly doesn‘t add enough light for tasks, it puts off a chic glow that is attention-getting and can serve as a low light source at night when you don’t want bright lights to ruin your sleep. Moreover, glass is smooth and easy to keep clean. We would love to have this in a smaller version for a really awesome powder room that would be the talk of the neighborhood.
Bathroom Layout Tip 1: Assess bathroom users. As mentioned previously, it will serve you well to determine what the demographics of the bathroom's users will be. How many, how old/young, how tall/short, how flexible/inflexible on scheduled use relative to another's use of the bathroom, etc. This will help to determine the genuine best bathroom layout for the actual users, such as the number of sinks, the length of countertop, the number and size of drawers or cabinets, the bathing setup, etc.
