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.
Perhaps the ultimate in luxury is to have a sauna in the home. This relaxing feature has always been associated with wooden rooms, likely from its origin in the Nordic countries. No, however, you can luxuriate in a light-filled modern-style glass sauna instead of a dark wood-lined, windowless room. Surrounded by windows, you can enjoy the view while getting your sauna. Or, if you prefer a bit of the traditional style, Glass1989 offers a partially wood-slatted room, which still incorporates one glass wall and modern LED lighting. Incorporating some of these bathroom trends will definitely make this area of the home more relaxing and healthier. Investing in the bathroom, much like the kitchen, will reap good dividends when it's time to sell the home. It is one of the critical areas in any house and must offer more than just function. The bathroom needs to have style and a few luxury touches to make it desirable.
