For a more eclectic look with clean lines that still feels home, this bathroom design from Hastings Tile & Bath is a great launchpad for renovation ideas. The cabinetry sits on the floor like a traditional vanity, but instead of simply plopping the sink atop the base, it is mounted on the wall, hovering above the unit. This allows the fixtures and plumbing to become an accent feature and lightens the look. In addition to the counter space that is part of the sink unit, the longer base adds a convenient storage area. Twin mirrors do the job more stylishly than a large expanse of one big mirror. The options for a small powder room or tight bathroom are much more varied than they used to be. With new bathroom designs made specifically for tight spaces, homeowners are no longer forced to cram standard-sized fixtures into tiny bathrooms. Smaller basins like these from La Cava that are highly functional can be used with pedestals or wall-mounted cabinetry depending on the space and intended use. The self-rimmed sinks have fixtures that are mounted in the corner. This preserved valuable space along the edges, both for placing items as well as the overall space required for the installation. Slim vertical mirrors hide storage space within the medicine cabinets.
While a successfully functional kitchen utilizes the primary work triangle, the bathroom doesn’t typically have a one-size-fits-all functional layout. There are zones of functionality to consider, though, within any bathroom, which will play a role in determining the best bathroom layout for your space. While the functionality of most bathrooms tends to revolve around the toilet, you most likely don't want the actual design layout of the bathroom to emphasize this fact or feature. As far as the preferred layout of the toilet, the most common design decision, space permitting, is to tuck it away or even hide it somewhere, either behind a door or a half wall or the vanity. Visually, the more you can remove the focus of the bathroom from this fixture, the more aesthetic the bathroom will look and feel.
A powder room, also known as a half bath, contains simply a toilet and a sink. A 3/4 bath contains a toilet, sink, and either a tub or shower. A full bath contains all four elements – toilet, sink, shower, and tub. Master bathrooms are more likely to have a shower than they are a tub, although the showers of today's master baths are trending toward a larger footprint than traditional stand-up showers. Showers are certainly becoming more luxurious and elaborate, including multiple shower heads and streaming options, seating, and expanded walls. Enormous tubs reminiscent of jacuzzi-style fixtures did have their heyday, but they are going the way of all oversized and underused components in the bathroom. Instead, master bathrooms in particular are moving toward deeper, smaller tubs designed for two. This is both more economical in bathroom real estate as well as hot water heating.
