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.
Forget the old fluorescents and take a tour of different bathroom lighting styles that are available today. In fact, virtually any style of fixture can be used in your bathroom, as long as it provides the right kind of light and works with the decor. To properly illuminate your bathroom, you need several kinds of lighting. First, you need light that is bright enough for shaving, applying make-up and other self-care routines. On the other hand, you want the bathroom to feel serene, so you`ll want some ambient or accent lighting too. Here are some bathroom lighting ideas to transform your space. A little mood lighting for the bathroom can be just the ticket for creating a spa-like space. We really like these Tetra wall lights by Émilie Cathelineu for CVL for adding an artful touch as well. The fixtures come in different finishes and can be arranged in a multitude of combinations. The brass triangles can be placed to look like a single fixture or arranged across an expanse of wall for a flowing design. They would be perfect on the wall above a tub or beside the central bathroom mirror.
Bathroom Layout Tip 4: Incorporate storage. Whenever possible, get creative with bathroom storage. An over-the-door shelf, for example, can easily hold extra rolls of toilet paper or towels in even the most postage stamp-sized bathrooms. Soaps and toiletries, if they need a home in the bathroom, should be accounted for in the design of the bathroom layout, whether it's in the vanity cabinet or a shelving unit built into the wall between frame studs.
