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.
If you`re planning a total bathroom renovation, planning is key, and don't forget to include stylish bathroom lighting in your design. If you're simply looking to refresh your bathroom, changing out the lighting fixtures can be a cost-effective means to achieve a current and on-trend feeling in the space. Before you buy, browse lighting of all kinds and be sure that the style and proportions fit the design goal you are trying to achieve. Most of all, have fun with it.
The color combined with the lighting, the furniture, fixtures and decorations present in a particular space set the mood for that room and sometimes also set a theme for that space‘s interior design and decor. Some colors are better suited for certain types of spaces but there‘s really no general rule regarding that. That being said, what color would you choose for your bathroom if you were to redecorate the space right now? There are obviously many cool bathroom colors to choose from as well as plenty of beautiful and interesting combinations of colors. Let’s have a look at some of these options. Green is one of our absolute favorite colors and a great choice for contemporary bathrooms. It’s a fresh and vibrant color, full of energy but also able to set a tranquil and relaxing mood. We love the idea of a green wall that acts as a backdrop for wood furniture. It's a combination inspired by nature's beauty. Blue is a very popular bathroom color because of the association between this color and water or the sky. A light shade of blue, although of a cool nature, can make a space look and feel very relaxing and calming. That`s why blue is also a very great color for bedrooms.
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.
Freestanding tubs are generally considered to look modern and are usually defined by smooth lines and stylish curves. A typical freestanding tub is around 60” long and 30” wide with water depth of 19”. Smaller versions are available too and they measure 55” in length, 27” in width with 15” water depth while large freestanding tubs are generally 72” long and 32” wide with 20” water depth. Freestanding tubs often require larger bathrooms and oval tubs, although they may look larger in general are only slightly wider than rectangular tubs and just as long and deep.
