Bathroom design has been an essential factor in modern homes. It can be attributed to the importance of a bathroom in anyones home. Not only is it essential, it is also a room that guests usually see. But some people think that they should not design their bathrooms all because it is small. But size is not a factor when it comes to bathroom design.
The country style bathroom is perhaps the easiest type of design to create, and like the traditional bathroom only really works well within the right house. The classic country look is best associated with floral wallpaper, high beams, basin frills and a bath canopy. Following the traditional design, cast iron baths and deep ridged sanitary ware are what gives the country bathroom its nostalgic look. Check, floral or plaid curtains are preferred over roller blinds, and shutters, though rare in England, offer a great form of privacy as well as adding to the country effect. Wood plays a big part in this look, and almost all furniture works well in this setting, especially beech, maple, ash and oak vanity units and cabinets.
This is another way of conserving space. If you have a small bathroom, chances are you will hardly have space if your shower area is enclosed in a non-collapsible shower screen. These show screens may range in different styles. There are foldable types and sliding types. You may even use curtains for the division. This is an essential thing you can do if you want to clear up some space for your small bathroom design.
You may also think of installing a wall mounted sink and floating cupboards. This will eliminate them from taking too much floor space. Also, you can utilize the floor for other purposes such as putting a trash can or a plant.
Do you have enough lighting planned for your bathroom? Natural light is an important element in bathrooms. A window, a wall or roof skylight will bring in natural light, a view or a dramatic skyscape. Having a skylight that opens is great because moisture build-up is reduced. Artificial lighting is also vital and often overlooked in a bathroom. Without good lighting, the decor and the personality of your bathroom can not be developed properly. Lighting for your bathroom can be natural and manufactured. Lighting should be used to brighten and define the space since both can affect your mood and how you feel inside your home.
Having a window installed in your bathroom and allowing natural light inside will only make your room more spacious. This is free and you can freely use it to your advantage. But be sure to not make your window too big. It will only defeat the purpose of conserving wall space. Now that you have those things, you are now ready for small bathroom design. Now is the time to get your color scheme done and put up the accessories. Your room is bigger now and you can just choose a theme and implement it. With that, I wish you luck in your small bathroom remodeling endeavor.
